While on a family trip to South Korea in 2000, Krystal and her sister were scouted by SM Entertainment. The agency offered both girls singing and dancing lessons in order to professionally train them for a singing career. However, her parents only allowed Jessica to join the agency at first, as Krystal was too young.
In 2006, Krystal's parents finally allowed her to join SM Entertainment. She trained for 3 years before making her idol debut in 2009.

On August 18, 2020, it was reported that Krystal had left SM Entertainment, with her being in contact with acting agencies but she has yet to sign a contract. It was later revealed by a SM Entertainment representative that her contract with the agency expires at the end of August and they are currently in discussions of a renewal.
