The entertainment market is not the easiest path to choose when you are looking for a future job. The competition is fierce and you never know if you will eventually meet with the success. But debuting in country other than the one where you are born is even harder, unless you are Ailee.

Ailee (real name Amy Lee) is born in the U.S land and was even signed under an American label before moving in South Korea where she auditioned for YMC Entertainment, I guess they were really impressed by here cause they recruited her on the spot.

After appearing on the MBC show Singer and Trainee where she finished in 1st position, Ailee began an acting career in the KBS musical drama series Dream High 2.
