More recently, Yoojin was awarded first prize in the prestigious Munetsugu competition, for which she received loan of the 1697 'Rainville' Stradivari violin for the next two years.
A graduate with top honors of The School of Music at The Korean National University of Arts (undergraduate program), in 2013 Yoojin was awarded the Graduate Diploma at New England Conservatory, where she has been studying under Miriam Fried.
