Lee Min Young 이민영 also known as Min, is a South Korean idol singer, actress, model, MC and dancer. She is the lead vocalist and main dancer of the Korean girl group miss A which is under AQ Entertainment, a JYP Entertainment sub-label. Before debuting with miss A, Min had some notable recognition in South Korea and some parts of America for being "Lil Jon's protege". She is considered as JYP's longest trainee having been trained for 8 years before debuting.
Min was born on June 21, 1991 in Seoul, South Korea. At a very young age, she had already been exposed to the entertainment industry as she had took part in "BoBoBo" (The Korean version of Sesame Street), as part of the duo called "Eolleong Ddungddang". At 13 years old, she and Girls' Generation's member, Hyoyeon, formed a dance duo called "Little Winners". Videos of Little Winners have become a popular watch on Youtube. Min auditioned to be a part of JYP Entertainment when she was in the 6th grade. After a year of training, she was sent to the U.S. to train some more as she prepares for a U.S. debut. She went to study at the Repertory Company High School in Manhattan. Min had revealed on an episode of Oh! My School, a South Korean variety show, that on the sixth year of her training, she had ran away after being disheartened from the recurring delay of her U.S. debut. She said that no one, not even her family nor JYP, knew that she had gone back to South Korea in 2008. She worked several jobs including being a Dance teacher and an English teacher for about 18 months.
