According to Soompi, during the show, Shin Yoo Mi revealed that she started her career when JYP Entertainment contacted her to audition to become a vocal trainer for the agency.
Back when she worked at JYP Entertainment, she taught idols including BTOB’s Peniel, MONSTA X’s Shownu, DAY6’s Sungjin, Jae, Young K, and Wonpil, GOT7’s Jackson, JB, Jinyoung, Yugyeom, and BamBam, and TWICE’s Nayeon, Jihyo, Jeongyeon when they were trainees.
Following her time at JYP Entertainment, she moved to YG Entertainment and worked with Lee Hi, (G)I-DLE’s Miyeon, and with BLACKPINK for five to six years. Most recently, she also trained Jennie during preparations for her solo debut.
On the first time she met BLACKPINK when they were trainees, Shin Yoo Mi revealed, “Jennie was so pretty and like a celebrity even back then.” She commented that all four members have lots of individuality and added, “Lisa is really good at singing also. Jennie is a multi-player who is good at singing, rapping, and even writing lyrics, so I am really looking forward to those aspects of her in the future. Rosé always played the guitar herself while singing, so I think that helped her develop her individuality. Fitting with her beautiful looks, Jisoo received lessons usually with more sentimental ballad songs.”
She chose Rosé as the BLACKPINK member whose vocal color stands out the most to her, remarking, “She has such a naturally nice voice.”
