Born in Seoul, Ilmo studied fashion design in her undergraduate years. She worked as a fashion designer and webmaster in companies before studying media design at IDAS, a design school in Korea. After going through the foundation level of the course she figured that her core interest was in animation and storytelling. She moved to Singapore in 2008 to study Animation and Digital arts at NYU Tisch Asia instead of finishing the design course.
