2014–present: Solo debut[edit]

On July 31, 2014, Park made her debut as solo artist under the pseudonym HA:TFELT (an amalgamation of the words "hot" and "heartfelt;" the British pronunciation of “heartfelt") with debut mini album Me?.[6] The album was included in Billboard's list of the 10 best K-pop albums of 2014.[7]

On January 26, 2017, it was announced that Wonder Girls were to disband after unsuccessful contract renewal negotiations with some of its members, including Yeeun herself, who parted ways with JYP Entertainment. The group released their final single "Draw Me", co-written by Yeeun, on February 10. The song also served as a celebration of the group's 10th anniversary since debut.[1]

In April 2017, Park signed with Amoeba Culture, becoming the label's first female solo artist in eleven years.[2]

She subsequently released two soundtrack singles for the Korean travel series Cross Country: "Thru The Sky" and "Cross Country," a collaboration track with Kim Bo-hyung and Suran. In May, Yeeun was credited as a songwriter on "Only You" from former labelmate Twice's EP Signal.
