Since the debut of (G)I-DLE 4 years ago in 2018 with "LATATA", Jeon Soyeon has been producing and writing all of the K-pop girl group's title songs alongside a myriad of their B-side songs. She is also a popular soloist that also produces, writes, and composes her own songs.

In an interview with Teen Vogue as part of their promotions with their "TOMBOY" comeback, (G)I-DLE's Soyeon shared that while she is now respectively greatly for being a gifted songwriter, previously in her trainee days, the K-pop idol was judged as it was not yet normal for a female trainee to want to learn how to write and compose tracks.

"Prior to debuting, it was rare for female idols to learn composition, so when I said I wanted to compose and produce, everyone thought it was strange," (G)I-DLE's Soyeon explained.

(G)I-DLE's Soyeon then talked about how difficult it was when she would bring up popular K-pop idol producers such as BIGBANG's G-Dragon or Block B's Zico, and then be told that it is okay for them to write their own music because they are men.

(G)I-DLE's Soyeon added, "When talking about idols and producers like GD and Zico, they said, 'They are men.' Whenever I heard this, I wondered, 'What does that matter?'"

But, even though (G)I-DLE's Soyeon had a rocky start with her career, the K-pop idol has now gone beyond all expectations as she is now considered one of the best K-pop idol producers of the present generation.
