Well-known as a CCM singer, Soyang agreed that she was definitely not as big a name as the other singers because she didn't have a big management company backing her up. "I want to tell the stories in my own style", she said.

She has the ability to go back and forth in 4 octaves, which is incredibly rare for an Asian singer. She has been known for her singing abilities amongst music aficionados but she surprised everyone with witty comments and a sense of a humor on her first appearance on the show. 

She went on to reveal, to the shock of viewers, that she had undergone surgery for cervical cancer 15 years ago, when she was just a newlywed. She visited the hospital with complains of stomachaches, and doctors told her there was a tumor in her womb. When they opened her for surgery to remove the tumor, they found cancer cells that tests had not revealed. She believes that marriage was a gift to her and is the only reason she is probably alive.

"Music is the one language that is the most convincing and the most devastating to the human soul", she claimed, "A lot of people are going through difficult times right now so I want to put on shows that show that I am crying with them and I want the audience to identify with me."
