She began playing piano at age four as her aunt's first piano student(her aunt bought her a piano for her fourth birthday present); at age ten, she entered the Korean National Conservatory, while she also swept many awards from numerous competitions in South Korea. In 1997, Joyce moved to New York and began studying in Juilliard's pre-college division, studying with Veda Kaplinsky. While in New York, she attended Ward Melville High School. She gained international renown during the 2005 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, in which she was awarded the silver medal despite being the competition's youngest participant.
