We investigate the effects of the initial correlation on the dynamics of open system in the exactly solvable pure dephasing model. We show that the role of the initial correlation come into play through a phase function and a weight factor, which would perform oscillations during time evolution, and find that the decoherence of a qubit coupled to a boson bath is more enhanced with respect to a spin bath in the short time. We also demonstrate that the trace distance between two states of a qubit can increase above its initial value, and that the initial correlation can provide another resource for the damply oscillation and revival of the entanglement of two qubits. We finally investigate the dependence of the crossover of decoherence from the dynamical enhancement to suppression under the bang-bang pulse control on the initial correlation and the statistics of the bath constituents.
