In 2010, her fourth full-length album H-Logic, marked her first entry into the Circle Albums Chart, peaking at number 15. "Swing" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," two of the LP's singles, soared to number 1 on the local charts. During this period, she also became known for her activism, particularly for animal rights. Monochrome, her fifth studio album, arrived in 2013, cracking the South Korean Top 10 and spawning the chart-topping singles "Miss Korea" and "Bad Girls." In 2015, she took a brief hiatus before returning in 2017 with Black, which hit number 9. In 2019, she reunited with Fin.K.L for a reality show, and in 2020, founded the trio SSAK3, which donated all proceeds from their promotions to communities in need.
