Yun*chi decided at a young age to become a singer after hearing her mother sing every day. In elementary school, she made it to the final round of auditions for a local production of the musical Annie; she later pursued jazz dance for fifteen years to improve her dancing abilities. In 2010, she briefly dabbled as a model for photographer Julie Watai's project Hardware Girls, but due to her short stature she has never pursued fashion modeling professionally.
Before her debut, Yun*chi was also a frequent clubgoer, and the friendships and connections she made to musicians in the club scene helped her begin doing original music. She met kz (livetune) who produced the song "Believe*" which was her first to be released on CD with its inclusion on TamStar Records Collection vol.0. In 2011 she contributed covers of "Canary" on MemorieS ~Goodbye and Hello~ and "Tenshi no Yubikiri" on I♥TOKYO ~FOR ANIME MUSIC LOVERS~. Her official debut was on November 14th, 2012 with the release of her mini-album Yun*chi.
In 2013, Yun*chi took the grand prize in the annual Music Jacket Awards. On December 13th, 2014 she held her first one-man live concert entitled Wonderful Wonder Wanman* ～Asterisk* of pink～ at the club Akihabara MOGRA.
