About Lee Jin Ah

Lee Jin Ah Facts

  • It occupied the third position of the Top10, in the program Kpop Star in season 4.
  • At her first audition of Kpop star 4, the judges thought her voice was similar to the voice of a person who had inhaled helium. Even so they later stated that they “liked new things and her voice was one of those things,” adding that they “had never heard a voice like that.”
  • Her favorite artists are Esperanza Spalding, JYP and Sung Si Kyung, although she later added that she also likes Hee Yeol.
  • Apparently her voice really is like that, since when she speaks and sings they sound exactly the same.
  • On her first appearance on Kpop star 4, the staff of the program asked her if she had ever heard that her voice was strange. To which Jin Ah pointed out; that “yes, I had.” She then added that “she had been teased by her classmates in school because of that.” However she then went on to say that “her voice didn’t bother her at all in her daily life currently,” and that she had “always wanted to sing and play the piano.” “That she wanted to be a singer and songwriter who let the public hear original songs, her own songs.”
  • She made many appearances in Hongdae and even released an album called “Unvisible”, but she herself said that “it didn’t change anything and also, not many people seemed to recognize her”.
  • In the same instance, she pointed out that, “In audition programs, there tend to be people who hit high notes and make their singing explosive and obviously there are people with flashy voices and categorized as powerful.” But, she went on to say that she “didn’t have a fabulous voice and didn’t really believe that people would like it, that she had no confidence in it,” but the former president of her agency gave her courage and told her to give it a try, to follow her dream. Because of that, she opted to apply for Kpop star.
  • She said before her first audition, “She could probably forget the lyrics because of her nervous state and maybe constantly worry about whether or not the judges would like her voice.
  • Her first audition/performance in Kpop star was with the song “Slow down time”. In that same instance when she started to play the piano, she stopped after a few seconds, since the keyboard pedal seemed not to work, even so one of the judges Hee Yeol gave her the pass, action that was followed by another judge JYP, leaving only waiting, the decision of YG.
  • When the song was sung, the expressions of surprise were not long in coming, among these, the most notorious were those of JYP.
  • After her audition, JYP expressed that she had “never heard a similar kind of music”, followed by a “What planet are you from?” from another judge, Hee Yeol.
  • JYP said many times that she was not sure how to classify Jin Ah’s music style. But that did not detract from its value at all, but made it even more striking. she pointed out at the first audition that “I was completely delighted and that she was already an artist”. For her part, Hee Yeol expressed that “he had just seen the female musical artist she had always dreamed of witnessing, that only without any preparation she had appeared in front of her eyes and that was why she was so happy”. Speech that was interrupted by JYP who let it be known in a competitive and certainly comical way that she had actually been the first one to dream such a thing. she pointed out that she had been 3 years as a judge of the program, when Hee Yeol had only been 2 years, so as a result, she had dreamt it first. Which ended with Jin Ah’s own words “I think I’m dreaming”.
  • In her Kpop star 4 audition song, a part of the lyrics states, “Days go by fast, I’ll end up becoming a grandma if I’m always with you.”
  • Finally, at the first audition after JYP and Hee Yeol gave the pass to Jin Ah, it was YG’s decision instance, to which she pointed out that Jin Ah, seemed to be “Alice in Wonderland”, that an indie music artist becoming famous, was like watching a movie, like “Begin Again”. That was what people were waiting for, even people in Korea and therefore, she believed that Lee Jin Ah should become a singer in order to walk that path, so she would press the button that gave her the pass, without hesitation.
  • Following Lee Jin Ah’s audition, Hee Yeol in a short film that was shown below, expressed that “there are people who work in the music scene or enjoy it. They point out that there is not much music that is really worth listening to in Korea. To which she then added, “It wasn’t that there was little music worth listening to, but that we (including herself) didn’t really look for it properly. Because there was someone out there who made the kind of music that was worth listening to, and that person was Jin Ah.”
  • Her song “Time Slow Down” that she used to perform in the first round of Kpop Star 4 made it to #1 on the charts.
  • Another song composed by her that made it to #1 on the charts was Follow Your Heart (마음대로/자작곡).
  • Officially debuted under Antenna Music on June 10, 2016 with a single containing two songs composed by her.
  • Her cousin Lee Jin Hee is part of the group BULLDOK.
  • On August 16, 2017, a source from her agency Antenna stated, “Lee Jin Ah and pianist Shin Sung Jin are in a relationship. Naturally, they started dating after working together in music.”
  • She composed three of the songs (plus the title track) on the debut mini-album by Yoo Seon Ho.
  • On January 1, 2019, a source from Antenna Music reported, “Lee Jin Ah and Shin Sung Jin will get married at the end of March. The exact date and location will not be announced. They recently finished taking their wedding photos.”
