The meaning of «joo (singer)»

Jung Min-joo (born Jung A-rin, October 11, 1990), known professionally as Joo (stylized in all caps), is a South Korean singer, songwriter and musical actress. In 2006, she became a contestant on JYP Entertainment's Superstar Survival. Although she didn't win, she was accepted as a trainee at JYP Entertainment. After two years of training, Joo debuted as a soloist with her single album Young Girl in January 2008. However, she resumed training for two years, as she didn't feel ready for her debut. Joo later returned in January 2011 by releasing her EP Heartmade.

Aside from her music career, Joo has participated in various musical dramas, including Youthful March (2011–2012), Catch Me If You Can (2012–2013), and Full House (2014). She also participated in notable TV drama Dream High (2011) and the movie Marriage Blue (2013).

Joo was born on October 11, 1990 in Seoul, South Korea. She spent her childhood in Indonesia because of her father's work.[citation needed] Her younger brother is Jung Il-hoon, a member of the South Korean boy group BtoB.[1]

Joo was one of the contestants in the 2006 survival series Superstar Survival alongside 2PM's Chansung, Taecyeon and Junho. Although Junho was ultimately crowned the winner, she was accepted to train at JYP Entertainment.[citation needed]

On January 10, 2008, JYP Entertainment stated that they would debut a new solo singer, Joo. She made her debut stage on January 11, 2008, with her single "Young Girl" on KBS' Music Bank.[2] Despite already making her debut, Joo ultimately decided that she was not yet ready to finish her training. She continued life as a trainee until her comeback in 2011.

On January 3, 2011, Joo released her much-awaited comeback video, titled "Bad Guy", which featured 2PM's Chansung[3] on her official YouTube channel. The single was part of her album titled Heartmade. Her comeback stage featured the same song on the January 7 broadcast of Music Bank.[4]

On May 12, 2011, Joo released another teaser video with a new song titled "Ice Cream" featuring Super Junior's leader, Leeteuk.[5] The music video was released on May 16, 2011.

On May 23, 2011, JYP Entertainment officially announced that JYP artists would come together for two “JYP NATION in Japan 2011” concerts in Japan in August 2011. The star-studded line-up included Park Jin-young, Lim Jeong-hee, Wonder Girls, Joo, 2AM, 2PM, Miss A, and San E. The two concerts took place on August 17 and 18 at the Saitama Super Arena.

On October 10, 2011, JYP Entertainment revealed that Joo had been selected as a leading actress in a musical called Youthful March, scheduled to perform from November 12, 2011 to January 29, 2012.[6] This marked her debut as a musical actress. As it was her first time in a musical, she said: "I'm excited to take my first step into the world of musicals. It's only the beginning, and as it is a leading role, I'll be rehearsing harder than anyone else to create an amazing show. I'll do my best to show a different image from singer Joo as musical actress Joo, so please give me your support.".[7]
