Park Kahi is a South Korean singer, dancer, and former member of the girl group After School. Kahi was born in a small village in Gangwon. She did not find her passion for dancing until she was 16. She also became fascinated by the hip hop group Roo’ra at age 16, which motivated her to become a singer. However, due to her family’s opposition and practical conditions, she could not get any professional training.
In her high school years, she trained herself in singing and dancing. However, her father made her go to a university in a rural area. She obeyed at the beginning; however, eventually, she could no longer stand being a college student and left her hometown to pursue her dream. She did not speak with her father for the next seven years. She went to Seoul alone and empty-handed. Then, one day, a friend took her to an interview to be a backup dancer. She did well at the audition and got the job. She then started her dancing career at age 18. As of June 2012, Kahi graduated from After School and continued her career as a solo singer and actress with Pledis before her contract ended in January 2015.
