AOA Seolhyun passed through a gateway to get to stardom. She is the winner of the 8th Smart Model Contest in 2010. A Smart Model Contest chooses regular students as uniform models. The first contest was won by Song Hye-kyo, the fourth by Ko Eun-ah and the seventh by Jiyeon from T-ara. Go Joon-hee was in the third.
Seolhyun said, "I was in middle junior high when I was promoting uniforms. A friend and I heard about the contest and signed up for it. We didn't think we were going to win. I just thought of it as a chance to build up my experience as I was dreaming of becoming a star. I didn't even know that I made it to the semi finals when they called my name.
After that, her path to stardom took a shortcut. Many entertainment officials were at the contest and they all passed her namecards. She chose FNC Entertainment which was managing FT Island and CNBlue.
"It was a good thing that I took part in that contest. If I hadn't gone there then I probably wouldn't even have made my debut yet. I wouldn't have been a part of AOA".
Seolhyun said, "Any challenge has meaning. Doesn't matter if you don't make it, as long as you try".
