Childhood and education

DinDin was raised alongside his two sisters in Seoul, by their father who is a businessman and their mother who is working as a teacher at a high school. DinDin started attending a baby school when he was three years old, and was taught English by his teacher Jublo, however, after DinDin’s mother noticed that he wasn’t getting any taller and took him to a hospital, doctors said it was due to him having an ‘intense study schedule’, his mother withdrew him from school.

He went on to study at Templeton Secondary School located in Vancouver, Canada, and with his sister was their first student from overseas – because he only learned English curse words and slang language, his sister often had to talk with the school’s principle. DinDin attended a high school in Seoul where he had poor grades, so upon matriculation in 2007 didn’t enroll at a college, but worked at whatever jobs he could find to financially support himself, before launching his career as a rapper.

Singles and featured singles

His debut single “Rain Sunshine (By Happy)” came out in 2013, but didn’t appear on any charts just as most of his later songs, but in the same year he featured in two songs – “Emotion” by 2LSON and Crybaby which peaked at #95 on the Gaon Music Chart, and “So Hard” by Yena which failed to chart.
