Choi’s early life

Choi was raised alongside his older sister in Namhae by their father, who is a martial artist and the owner of a Taekwondo studio, and their mother who is working at a local supermarket. It was Choi’s father who chose the name ‘San’ for him, as he wanted his son to become ‘a comforting hill for some people and for others’.

Love life and girlfriend

Choi San is currently dating his girlfriend Seong Ngor, for around three years now. Most of his fans are very curious to learn more about their relationship, and even joined on the internet to help Choi woo her, and make him her girlfriend in January 2017. Choi is one of the rare K-pop band members who seems to be allowed to have a girlfriend, as rookie singers usually have a ban on dating, and are often let go from their bands if they find a girlfriend.
