Ryujin explained in an interview on SBS Power FM's Lee Joon Young Street that she was in a GOT7 fan meeting when a scout from JYP approached her for her contact number. The rapper says that she somewhat freaked out at the scout's act, but he was so adorable that Ryujin couldn’t deny his request.
2. Golden eye to seize opportunities
In December 2017, the CEO of YG Entertainment, one of the biggest music agencies of Korea, Yang Hyun Suk, expressed that he wanted to somehow steal Ryujin from JYP and train her as a YG idol.

You are 100% skilled at taking advantage of the opportunity that comes your way.”
