As a solo project, Chaeyoung covered Cheeze’s ‘Alone.’ Chaeyoung collaborated with Frants on the track “How U Doin'” from Twice’s second Japanese studio album, Twice, making her the first member to do so. She also designed three distinct pairs of SPRIS shoes, as well as the group’s limited edition Page Two album cover.

Chaeyoung is a quiet individual who lives a low-key life. She is now single and is concentrating on her career and improving her abilities.
