Kim Da-hyun (born May 28, 1998), better known mononymously as Dahyun, is a South Korean singer and rapper. She is a member of the South Korean girl group Twice formed by JYP Entertainment.


Dahyun began to attract attention as a sixth grader in elementary school with a church dance named "eagle dance" which was posted on YouTube.[2][3][4][5] In 2015 Dahyun competed in Sixteen, a reality television show created to select the members of JYP Entertainment's new girl group called Twice.[6] Dahyun was subsequently selected to join Twice, as one of the nine successful participants in the competition.[5] In October 2015, Twice officially debuted with the release of their first mini-album, The Story Begins and the lead track "Like Ooh-Ahh".[7] In addition to regular singing, Dahyun serves as one of Twice's main rappers in conjunction with fellow group member Chaeyoung.[2][5] In Gallup Korea's annual music poll for 2017, Dahyun was voted as the seventeenth most popular idol in South Korea.[8][9]

In November 2018, right-wing Japanese lawmaker Masaru Onodera criticized Dahyun for wearing a T-shirt made by Marymond, an organization that raises funds for helping comfort women, victims of sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.[10] In the aftermath, The Korea Times criticized J. Y. Park, the founder of JYP Entertainment, for failing to speak up in her defense.[11]
