Solar came up with her own stage name. She wanted the name "Sunny" or "Taeyang," but both were already taken by famous idols (SNSD's Sunny and Big Bang's Taeyang). She chose Solar instead. The alternative story is that she wanted her stage name to be "Doremi," as in "do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do," and she settled on "Solar" as a play on the notes "so la."
She appeared on "We Got Married" with Eric Nam.
