As a member of SNH48, during the annual General Elections, she was elected as No.4 (2014), No.2 (2015), No.1 (2016) and No.1 (2017) among over 100 members.

Early life[edit]

Ju studied at The Attached Middle School of Sichuan Conservatory of Music, but dropped out to audition for SNH48.

On August 18, 2013, Ju Jingyi took part in the audition for second-generation members of SNH48, and was one of the 34 girls who qualified, becoming one of the 31 official second-generation members on September 5.[1] She made her first public appearance on September 21,[2] and had started performing weekly at the SNH48 Dream Stage. In November, she became a member of Team NII of SNH48. She participated in SNH48's first major concert, "SNH48 Guangzhou Concert", held in the Guangzhou International Sports Arena on November 16.

In May 2014, Ju starred in her first music video, "Football Party".[3] She subsequently ranked fourth during SNH48's first "General Election", during which they released their first album, Mae Shika Mukanee.[4] On September 2014, Ju, along with the top 16 members, went to South Korea to film the music video for "UZA".[5]

Ju was ranked second in SNH48's second "General Election", held on July 25, 2015.[6] She became a member of sub-unit Seine River along with Zhao Jiamin and Li Yitong. Their first single "Sweet & Bitter" (苦与甜) was released on 31 October 2015.[7]

In 2016, Ju made more appearances in singing contests and game shows, such as I Am a Singer Candidate Challenge and The Brain. She made her acting debut in the fantasy drama Novoland: The Castle in the Sky, which started airing in July. She also released a soundtrack for the drama, titled "Xue Fei Shuang".[8] On July 30, during SNH48's third General Election, Ju was ranked first place with over 230,000 votes, the highest ever number of votes received by an SNH48 member.[9] On October 17, Ju released her first solo single "Everyday".[10] On December 10, she won the New Television Actress of the Year Award at the Tencent Video Star Awards.[11]

On January 7, 2017, she participated in SNH48's third Request Time, of which her song "Don't Touch", performed with Zeng Yanfen and Zhao Yue, came in first, giving her the opportunity to release her second solo single.[12] On February 15, she took on her first leading role in the detective web drama, Detective Samoyeds. The series was a success and broke 10 billion views at the end of its two seasons.[13] In May, Ju was announced to be one of the recipients of the "May 4th Medal" medal, awarded by the Chinese Communist Youth League (CCYL) to outstanding youths who have made remarkable achievements in agriculture, hi-tech research, news coverage, politics and law, army and police.[14] The same month, Ju released her second EP, Yes Or No.[15] During SNH48's fourth General Election held on July 29, Ju came in first with 277781.3 votes, becoming the first SNH48 member to hold the position as the senbatsu center for a consecutive year.[16] In August, she starred in the fantasy drama Xuan-Yuan Sword: Han Cloud, portraying a gentle mute girl.[17] In November, Ju was announced as the female lead of suspense drama Please Give Me A Pair Of Wings.[18]

2017–present: Solo activities[edit]

On December 15, 2017, it was announced that Ju would depart from SNH48 and continue promotions as a solo artist under Star48. An individual studio and website have been launched to manage her solo career.[19] On December 18, she released her third solo EP, Rain.[20]

In 2018, she was cast in the television adaptation of the Chinese folktale legend Legend of the White Snake, playing the titular role.[21] The same year, Ju starred in the historical drama Legend of Yunxi.[22] She also sung the theme song for the drama, titled "Falling Flowers and Mud" (落花成泥).[23]

Public image[edit]

Ju has been referred to as a "once in 4000 years idol" by Chinese fans since 2014, however, due to a slight mistranslation, she has also been called a "once in 4000 years beauty" by the media, causing her to gain in popularity.[24]
