Ji-In Cho (December 30, 1976 in Leverkusen) is a German heavy metal singer of Korean descent. She has been the lead vocalist and pianist of the symphonic metal band Krypteria since December 2004 until their hiatus after her pregnancy. Following this, she became the lead vocalist of And Then She Came, a band consisting of most of the former members of Krypteria.
In 2003, Cho was unwittingly registered by a friend to the German edition of the Fame Academy television show for musical talents. For the show she recorded a cover version of Alanis Morissette's song "Ironic" which brought her into the German singles charts. In the end she became a member of the band Become One that was formed by successful contestants of the show.
Since December 2004, Cho has been the lead singer of the band Krypteria, whose single "Liberatio" was used for a charity campaign in aid of the tsunami victims in Southeast Asia. The outcome was proceeds of Euro 11 Million by selling 150,000 singles. "Liberatio" reached the status of a golden record and had the chart position No.3 for many weeks.
In 2012, Cho and Krypteria celebrated the birth of her first child, and took a break from live shows.
