To Ilgan Sports, Jota said, "It was when I was a senior in high school watching 'M! Countdown'. That day girl group A Pink debuted with 'I Don't Know'. A Pink Eunji's real name is Hyerim, so I wasn't sure at first because of the different name, but I asked my friends, and they said it is the Hyerim that I know. It was very shocking to see a friend I know on TV. Ever since then I also wanted to become a singer and after graduating grade school, I decided to take music lessons."
