Introduction to Yves
Yves (Hangul: 이브) is the ninth revealed member of LOONA and a member and leader of its third sub-unit, LOONA / yyxy.
She was born as Ha Soo Young (Hangul: 하수영) on May 24, 1997 in Busan, South Korea.
She debuted on November 14, 2017 as a member and subsequently released her solo single album "Yves" on November 28, 2017.
She was born in Busan, then at some point later moved to Yangsan, South Gyeongsang Province (Gyeongsangnam-do).
She joined a dance academy in Busan, "Dance Up Academy". On October 25, 2015, she appeared for the first time on their YouTube channel, on the video titled "Dance Up Jr : K-Pop Cover Dance". She appeared on several videos, that can be found in this playlist. She appeared on their YT channel for the last time on a choreography video, "Reddy - 생각해 : E:Na Choreography" published on July 15, 2016.
According to fan accounts, she was a trainee under Hunus Entertainment (ELRIS' agency). She trained with ELRIS' Bella and DIA's Eunchae, and apparently almost debuted with Bella. Yves met Bella in 2014/2015 so she may have joined Hunus Entertainment in 2014/2015.
Before joining BlockBerryCreative, Yves was a part of a dance group at D-Pop Studio (by Dream Vocal & Dance Academy), in Seoul. Yves said she joined the group secretly because her mother was against it. She studied really hard and ranked #11 in her studies at school, but in Grade 11 revealed her secret to her mother because she really wanted to become a singer. Yves was last seen with the dance group one month before her reveal, when they released a dance cover (October 18, 2017).
On October 24, 2017, a blog posted a congratulatory message for 'Ha Soo Young' for passing Polaris Entertainment's audition. At some point in the latter half of 2017 after September, Yves was accepted as a trainee at Polaris Entertainment. Despite her audition not being ideal, as she was only notified the night before, she was accepted the next day after performing a song and original choreography. Similar to other members, she was transferred to BlockBerryCreative at some point in order to become a member.
Yves was first teased on November 6, 2017. She released her solo single album Yves on November 28, 2017 and subsequently debuted as a member of LOONA.
