She was part of a singing group called Brand New Biscuits (ブランニュービスケット, Brand New Biscuits?), debuted in Japan on January 1, 2001, when it had 6 members. Brand New Biscuits included also another Korean singer, Yuny Han (Han Tae Yoon). Chae Yeon was also member of group UltraCats (ウルトラキャッツ, UltraCats?) under the name of “Jinny” (ジニー, “Jinny”?) or “Jinny Lee” (ジニー・リー, “Jinny Lee”?) from 2001 to 2002.

Having passed an audition held by an entertainment management company in Japan, Chae Yeon first appeared on a popular show called “Uchan Nanchan no Urinari!” on Japanese NTV. She appeared on the show for almost 3 years. Along with the television show, Chae Yeon (then Jinny) performed as a singer releasing 3 singles and 1 mini-album in Japan.
