K-pop Star finalist Baek Ah-yeon finally made her long-awaited debut on September 10 with her first album I’m Baek.

Baek, who looks like a fragile little girl, has never been weak. She threw off malignant lymphoma in her childhood and developed a desire to perform on stage early on. She seemed to have constantly developed her singing skills during the audition program’s run, and became the first among the top three finaliststs make an official debut.

“I practiced harder every day and night to give a better performance than I showed in the audition,” said Baek. “I wish I could give hope to those who want to try out for season 2 of K-pop Star.”

Scheduled to take the stage of an SBS music show this Sunday, Baek said she feels a sense of responsibility. “As I am the first one making a TV debut among the K-pop Star members, I feel responsible for having to make a good start.”

Baek’s title track “Sad Song” released via YouTube on September 4 exceeded 430,000 views. Baek’s music video is available at her official YouTube channel.
