Boram was the first new member to be added to T-ara after two former members, Jiae and Jiwon, quit the group in mid-2009. She was contacted by the CEO of Core Contents Media after he watched a video clip of Boram dancing to BoA's "My Name".

It was announced on July 15, 2010 that she will take over Eunjung's position as the second leader of T-ara, following the addition of new member Hwayoung.[6]

Solo activities[edit]

In 2010, she was cast in a one-episode film of KBS's Purple Heeled Grim Reaper is Coming.

In 2011, she was involved in a musical called "I Really Really Like You" with her father. Boram passed on her leadership to fellow member Hyomin in July 2011.[7]
