Life and career

1993–2011: Early life and career beginnings

Jung Daehyun was born in Gwangju, South Korea, on June 28, 1993.[1] He later moved to Busan, South Korea. Daehyun has one older brother.[2] Daehyun studied at the Sajik Elementary School and Sajik Middle School. At 18, Daehyun graduated at the Busan Computer and Science High School. Daehyun also came from the Nataraja Academy and was the last member to join B.A.P.[2] When asked how he became a singer, Daehyun commented, "When I was watching TV as a child I learned to be a singer. When I was deciding on a high school, as expected I thought “I have the goal of becoming a singer”, and entered the practical music department. At that time also, I was walking by the music academy and had a chance to audition, passed that, and became a member. I practiced at the academy but from when I entered the company and our debut, about 6 months passed. I was the last one to join. So like that up until our debut, my life was full of noisy instances happening. I didn’t feel that there were any horrible or difficult things."[3]
