Educated in National Middle and High Schools of Korean Music, Saeyoung completed her bachelor's degree of Korean Music as a Gayageum player at Seoul National University, under the teaching of Ji-young Yi. She also studied English Literature as a minor during her bachelors.
Saeyoung loves experiencing new cultures which has led her to travel the World, and Europe extensively. To further experience new culture, Saeyoung was an exchange student at Stockholm University, Sweden between 2014 and 2015. Coming in to contact with plethora of diverse cultural experiences in society, music, media and literature from visiting many countries in Europe during this period have led her to dedicate herself to new music.
As a musician who is playing a Korean traditional musical instrument, the Gayageum, she is now seeking to broaden her own musical genre by combining gayageum and contemporary music. She is looking to accomplish this by working on a project to create interactive music using computer technology and the traditional Korean sounds of the Gayageum.
