 Park Ga-hee's Early life

She was raised by her grandparents. She found her passion for dancing when she was 16 and also around this time became fascinated by the hip hop group Roo'ra , which would motivate her to become a singer. However, due to family opposition and practical conditions, she could not receive professional training, so during high school she trained herself in singing and dancing. Her father prevailed upon her go to a university in a rural area. At first she obeyed his wishes, however, she was unable to endure being a college student and eventually left her hometown to pursue a dancing career. She did not speak with her father for the next seven years. She went to Seoul alone and without funds. One day a friend took her to an interview to be a backup dancer. She did well at the audition and got the job. She started her dancing career at age 18.[citation needed]

2000–2007: Dancing and S.Blush[edit]

In 2000, Kahi was chosen as the main dancer for DJ Doc 's mega-hit, " Run to You ". However, this instant success also brought her huge stress, and eventually forced her leave. For a period of time, to make an income, she worked as a cleaner, waitress, and sales clerk. A choreographer in SM Entertainment gave her a chance to become a temporary dancer for BoA , which became a full-time position. She gradually gained fame as a dancer and her work with BoA lasted more than three years. Besides BoA, she was also an important backup dancer for Country Kko Kko , Jinusean , 1TYM , Lexy , Chae Yeon , Eun Ji Won , and many others. She was also the dance teacher for Son Dam Bi , May Doni, and Kim Jung Ah, her former bandmate.
