Yoon was born as Yoon Dong Goo, a name he used until his agency recommended an official change of name upon his entry into college, in a small town in Suncheon. He is the only child of his family. When he was a little boy he was raised by his grandparents. At the time, while the peer of his age went to kindergarten and learned English, Yoon went to seodang, a traditional school that taught Confucianism and learned Chinese characters. Yoon's unique childhood was then unveiled through his song Grandpa's bicycle for Barefooted Friends.
