Kim So Hyun was born in Korea, lived in Suncheon, and raised in a family that would be considered, ordinary. Although she grew up in Korea where the classical music market is exceedingly small, she enjoyed listening to classical music rather than pop songs at a very young age.
The urge to learn music was so great that she eventually dropped out of high school to study music and to acquire various cultures relating to the arts. Following her music studies, she majored in classical music after being accepted to university and received a master's degree in Dance Music.
As a composer, she has never acquired any lessons in music composition, but she has released 70 compositions that are very popular and are used in ballet institutions all over the world. She is highly regarded as a ballet pianist who has introduced an incredibly unique set of colors in the world of ballet dancing music.
She has been working for ballet schools, universities, and ballet institutions as a pianist and most recently she has moved to Toronto, Canada to extend her knowledge on the western culture of music.
