According to the post, former S.E.S. member Bada had a hardship when she was little. Due to her father's illness, she was considering about giving up on transitioning into high school.
As Anyang Arts High School is known to be a home to many celebrities, Bada became an attentive student, and attended school in order to achieve her dream―musical actress.
In 1996, when Bada was only a sophomore in high school she was chosen to sing Jang Hye-jin's 'New Arrangement' at her school's festival. S.M. Entertainment's founder Lee Soo-man was also at the festival.
After hearing Bada's song, Lee Soo-man was shocked by her singing talent, and wanted to recruit her as a lead vocalist in a new K-pop girl group called S.E.S.
After making multiple attempts, Lee Soo-man finally persuaded her by telling that, "I'll promise you that I will help you with music career" and granting her with full-scholarship for her college.
In 1997, after Lee Soo-man's painstaking effort, Bada finally makes a debut stage with Eugene and Shoo in a girl group called S.E.S.
