Kim Dong-jun (born February 11, 1992) is a South Korean singer and actor. He debuted as member of boy group ZE:A (and later its subgroup ZE:A Five and ZE:A J). Apart from his group's activities, he has established himself as an actor, notably through his participation in various television dramas such as The Fugitive of Joseon (2013), Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho (2016), Black (2017) and About Time (2018). He has also starred in films such as A Company Man (2012), Take My Hand (2014), and Dead Again (2017).
Kim entered a nine-membered group called "Children of Empire". In 2009, they started in Mnet "Children of Empire" and "Children of Empire Returns", where they tour the country doing guerilla performances. Later the group faced controversy in December following the similarities of the group's name to Brown Eyed Girls' JeA. The group later changed the pronunciation of the name to avoid implications. On January 7, 2010, the group debuted with their EP, Nativity under the name ZE:A.
Kim made many appearances in Let's Go Dream Team Season 2 as a Dream Team member.
Kim won two gold medals in the Idol Athletes Chuseok Special on August 27, 2011, in men's 100 meter and 110 meter hurdles against other idols.
Kim was appointed as a torch bearer at the 17th Asian Incheon Games 2014.
In June 2017, Kim joined Gold Moon Entertainment after his contract with Star Empire Entertainment ended. The CEO of his new agency was ZE:A's former manager, Hwang Jung-moon. In August 2017, it was reported that Gold Moon Entertainment, The Vibe Entertainment and Asakusa Games had merged and now operate under the name "Major 9."
