Life and career[edit]

Early life[edit]

Jang was born in Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do, South Korea, on June 6, 1991.[1] She began writing songs at 15.[citation needed] She was an outstanding student but chose to drop out of high school to pursue a music career.[citation needed] Her original first name was So-min, but she changed her name to Jaein (which means "talented person" in Korean).[citation needed] At 16, she moved to Seoul and spent time busking on the streets of Hongdae[citation needed]. After entering Howon University (music major), Jaein performed regularly in several live clubs in Hongdae.[citation needed]

Career Beginnings: Superstar K2[edit]

In 2010, Jang appeared on Superstar K2,[2] placing third. She led the online poll for four consecutive weeks before entering the Top 3 Week (in which she was eliminated) with second most online votes behind John Park.[3]
