Joy is a member of SM Entertainment's newest girl group, Red Velvet. Joy was interested in music (particularly Korean trot music) from a young age. In 2012 at the age of 16 Joy auditioned for and was cast by SM Entertainment. She trained at the company for two years before debuting as one of the four original members of Red Velvet in 2014. Born Park Soo Young, Joy's stage name was given to her by her vocal coach, who thought the name would represent her cheerful disposition.
Following her debut with Red Velvet, Joy partnered up with BTOB member Yook Sungjae on the program We Got Married, where the two became the most popular and longest running couple in the show's recent history.
