Originally born in Seoul, South Korea, Lina moved to the states when she was about 5 years old living in NOVA just outside of DC.. Born to parents in the music industry, Lina started dancing and singing, as they say, before she could walk and talk. She picked up her first guitar in elementary school, playing along to the country music radio. She danced throughout her entire childhood, training in ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary, and hip-hop. After grade school, she headed to the happiest place on earth, James Madison University, studying musical theatre, dance, classical voice, acting, directing/choreography, and physical theatre while also competing on the JMU Competition Cheerleading team. She graduated in May 2015 with a B.A. in Theatre and Dance. She is now working out of NYC.
Lina spent her first year out of school performing all over the U.S. including Tennessee, Louisville, Tampa, New York, and Oregon. Shortly after moving back to NYC, she joined the cast of the Tony nominated Broadway revival, Miss Saigon!
In her spare time, Lina enjoys going on outdoor runs with her pup Churro, practicing yoga, snacking (special skills include being able to eat two Chipotle burritos in one sitting), singing with her much more talented baby brother, and binging procedural shows.
