Summary: Ailee was born Lee YeJin in New Jersey, USA. She debuted on February 8, 2012. Ailee got her start on YouTube singing R&B hits because her friends said her voice was really good. For a while before her Korean debut, she was with an independent music label called Muzo Entertainment. She collaborated with several artists, including Johnnyphlo and Decipher. In 2010, Ailee decided to move to Korea to pursue her music career and also to get closer to her roots. She is with YMC Entertainment, but has collaborated with WheeSung more than once, including on WheeSung’s title track “They Are Coming.” She got her acting debut with Dream High 2, playing a member of fictional girl group HershE. (Velexa here! Redeim forgot to link you guys to Aliee’s discography, so here it is!)
What to say about Ailee? Hmm… I know at first, Velexa and I both were very, very annoyed with Heaven. We hated it, and henceforth, hated her. It wasn’t until we decided to watch an Immortal Song clip with JaeBum and Ailee interacting. Turns out she was pretty freaking adorable. On top of that, Heaven was really growing on us (we had been buying Inkigayo DVDs from a place in our hometown, and Heaven kept being played). So now we love her and you guys should love her too. 😀
