Krystal was born in San Francisco, California, where her family from South Korea settled in the 1980s. During a family trip to South Korea in early 2000, when Krystal was five years old, she and her older sister Jessica were spotted by talent agency S.M. Entertainment, which earned her a cameo appearance in Shinhwa's "Wedding March" music video. The agency saw potential in both Krystal and her sister and offered them singing and dancing lessons, opting to professionally train them in a singing career. However, the offer was turned down by her parents, reasoning that Krystal was too young. Therefore, her parents at first only allowed her older sister to join the agency, who debuted as a member of girl group Girls' Generation in August 2007. Since then, the Jung sister have appeared together in many events.
In 2002, Krystal began appearing in television commercials. She first appeared in a Lotte commercial with Korean actress Han Ga In. In 2006, her parents allowed her to join SM Entertainment, and the agency enrolled her in dance classes, including hip hop and jazz.
She attended Korea Kent Foreign School after moving to Korea, and then graduated in Hanlim Performing Arts High School on February 7, 2013, where she was honored with an achievement award. She is currently attending Sungkyunkwan University majoring in performing arts. She is fluent in both English and Korean.
A teaser trailer of f(x) was released via YouTube on August 24, 2009. The group's debut digital single "LA chA TA" was released on September 1, followed by a 40-second teaser of the corresponding music video revealed on YouTube. The group debuted on September 2 in a showcase specifically designed to introduce the group, in an event held at the Samseong-dong Fashion Center. On September 5, f(x) had their first broadcast performance on MBC's music show Music Core. In 2010, she released a solo song named "Melody" accompanied with a music video.

In 2010, Krystal appeared on Let's Go Dream Team 2, where she broke a high jump record that had been set on the show 10 years ago with a height of 1.95 metres.
In 2011, she competed on the SBS skating reality show Kim Yuna's Kiss & Cry.
