Baek Ah Yeon (b. March 11, 1993) is a singer best known for her third-place finish on the first season of SBS's K-Pop Star. She is noted for her covers of Kim Bum Soo's "보고싶다 (I Miss You)", Girls' Generation's "Run Devil Run", BoA's "아틀란티스 소녀 (Atlantis Princess)", Whitney Houston's "Saving All My Love for You" and collaboration with fellow competitor 이승훈 (Lee Seung Hoon) on Electroboyz's "Ma Boy 2" on the show. She signed with JYP Entertainment after the competition ended.
She moved to the Top 10 of the competition through her keyboard-backed, emotional rendition of Big Bang‘s “Day by Day” (“Haru Haru“). Her charm lies in her pure voice, and her control of feelings and expressiveness are also key. Jang Jin Young (SM) said of Baek Ah Yeon, “Her knowledge of musical fundamentals are strong, so she doesn’t waver when performing any song. As a vocalist with a strong foundation in music, she knows how to sing songs crisply and cleanly. She can sing a wide variety of genres, play the keyboard, sight read, and her clear voice is excellent.”
