After signing up and becoming an official singer, her manager and family advised her to complete her university degree before deciding whether to continue in her career or not.[1] Meanwhile, her company organized her to participate in big events and MV's, mainly with other big singers in the company such as Ella Koon.[2][3] During this time she recorded the songs, "I Was Here" and "The Whole World Love-Lost".
