Since 2015, Jung is the lead vocalist of rock band Drug Restaurant, previously known as JJY Band,[2] releasing their first album "Escape to Hangover" in May 2015[3]

Since his official debut with the release of 1st Mini Album in October 2013, Jung has won the "New Male Solo Artist" award for its title track "이별 10분전 (The Sense of an Ending)" at the 3rd Gaon Chart K-Pop Awards.

Early life[edit]

Jung Joon-young was born on February 21, 1989, in Jakarta. He grew up in Indonesia, China, Japan, France and Philippines.[7][8] He is the youngest son of Jung Hak-chun and Choi Jong-sook. His father was an international businessman who travelled to many countries for his business. Jung learned to speak five different languages such as English, Mandarin, Korean,[9] conversational Japanese, and Tagalog. He couldn't enroll in a regular school due to frequent moves. He took private lessons for regular subjects such as Math, English, violin, and piano. He also got his fourth-degree black belt in Taekwondo.

When Jung turned 17, he decided to go to the Philippines to do missionary work. He taught Taekwondo and music to the local children. He was a member of the choir which performed in front of the former president of the Philippines, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. He stated that he got inspired by Kurt Cobain and was determined to become a rock star after he watched Nirvana's MTV Unplugged Show when he was a teenager.[10][11]

Career[edit]

2008–2012: Beginnings[edit]

Indie Bands period

Jung moved to South Korea the next year to start his musical career and soon signed to an entertainment agency, supposedly Danal Entertainment which released Jung's solo EP titled Rock Trip in 2010 as well as the digital single "환상 Fantasy" in 2012.

In 2008, Starkim Entertainment selected Jung as a vocalist of LEDApple.[12] As one of the original members, he went through the training process and even finished recording the debut album with the band, however, before Led Apple's debut in 2010, Starkim Entertainment discovered that Jung was already under contract with the previous agency which refused to release him and, thus, he was dropped from the idol rock band.[13]

In 2010, Jung dove into the Hongdae, Seoul indie music scene and formed various bands such as Flower Mist which busked in Japan and Switch On which performed for amateur club theaters.

Jung modelled for several online shopping malls. He was also on an advertisement for "BGF retail" (franchise retail) and participated in other artists' music-videos such as "Liquor Bottle" (술병 by Haha).[14][15] Jung appeared on the TV show Ulzzang Generation 얼짱시대 Season 5 (Ep.1~Ep.8)[16][17] and referring to this show, he said, "People don't like this program because they think this is just about good looking boys and girls chatting on a TV show, but it was a good opportunity for [him] to make money."

Since his band, "Switch On" was little known to the public, Jung Joon-young tried to take part in Superstar K4 with Switch On members to gain more popularity as a band, but they couldn't continue the audition together due to some foreign members' visa problems. Thus, he decided to carry on the audition as a solo artist.[citation needed]

During the Superweek, his low husky voice, appearance, and unpredictable character trait appealed to the viewers as well as the judges, especially one of the judges, PSY. Moreover, his collaboration with Roy Kim covering "먼지가 되어 (Becoming Dust)" by (Kim Kwang-Suk), which Jung changed the ballad to the rock version, became a big hit and the best duet audition song ever.[18][19] After releasing, it achieved an "all-kill" on real-time charts and won the Mnet 20's Choice Hot Cover as well as 2013's Most Popular Karaoke Song of the Year at the 3rd Gaon Chart K-Pop Awards. Jung was at risk of dropping out several times, though he passed through into the finals by Psy's choice in the judge's final decision.[citation needed]

Throughout the final stages, he stuck to rock style as his only musical style. He was repeatedly suggested to that he needed to try a different genre of music, such as ballad, by the judges. However, on the other hand, his persistence about rock music impressed a lot of viewers, and, as a result, it help him to establish a strong fandom. He was able to survive the third stage through a large number of phone votes. His covers that represented his rock style were "매일매일 기다려 Waiting Everyday" (TeeSams), "Bed of Roses" (Bon Jovi), and "Outsider" "(Bom-Yeoreum-Gaeul-Gyeoul 봄여름가을겨울)[20] which performance received a positive response from the judges and audience. On the fifth stage, he was urged to sing a rock ballad "응급실 Emergency Room" (IZI)[21] which had been chosen by the viewers regardless of his musical taste. Unexpectedly, it highly ranked and topped on various online charts and also earned favorable reactions from the public.[22]

Though he was eliminated in the sixth stage of the semi-final as top 3, Jung mentioned during his farewell interview that "Superstar K4 was the turning point in [his] music career. Before [he] tried out for Superstar K4, only those who liked rock music listened to [his] songs. However, now a more variety of people listen to [his] music and acknowledge [him]. [He's] glad [he] got to make [himself] known through Superstar K4."[23]
