Early life, sister and education

Song was raised in Seoul alongside his younger sister Song Eunjin, who is known as ‘ulzzang’ (‘very pretty’) by their father, who is the owner of a barbeque store, and their mother who is working at the very store. Song became interested in acting while growing up, as he spent most of his free time in front of the TV watching movies and TV series.

He was a member of his high school’s drama club, and appeared in several plays while there, before he was noticed by a scout working at YG Entertainment, who invited him to attend his first audition. At first Song wanted to pursue his acting career, but after being advised by a YG employee, he started to work on his vocal skills, which eventually led him to become a member of iKON.

Song matriculated from high school in 2013, then didn’t pursue a college degree, but focused on his career as a singer.

Singing career and the group YG iKON

Many of the iKON members were already active in the music industry before the group was created – B.I had performed with MC Mong on several of his songs including “Indian Boy”, and also sang with him at the 2009 SBS Dream Concert; Ju-ne was only 13 when he appeared in the music show “Star King”. The boys who became trainees at YG were divided into Team A and Team B, and were competing in the reality survival show “WIN: Who Is Next”. Team A eventually won, while Team B got to release their two singles “Climax” and “Just Another Boy”, and went on to compete in the reality TV show “Mix & Match”.

The boys then competed in and won the music show “Music Core”, marking their first show victory. On 16 November, iKON released two new digital singles “Anthem” and “Apology”, with the latter topping the Gaon Digital Chart.

To mark the end of 2016, the boys released three songs – “What’s Wrong?”, “Dumb & Dumber” and “I Miss You So Bad”.

They made their Japanese debut on 13 January 2016 with their album “Welcome Back”, which sold around 61,000 copies in only a week, and peaked at #3 on the Oricon Weekly Chart – the album also won the boys a 58th Japan Record Award for Best New Artist. It was announced on 17 March that the boys would be holding their debut Asian tour “iKoncert 2016: Showtime Tour”, and on 1 July, their second tour was announced – “iKon Japan Tour 2016”.

In February 2017, iKON started their debut dome tour which made them the group to sing at a Japanese dome in the shortest time. By the end of June, they embarked on a tour during which they visited eight Japanese cities and performed 22 times, making it the longest arena tour to be held by a group in Japan.

It was announced on 12 June 2019 that iKON’s leader, B.I would leave the group after it was revealed that he had tried to buy LSD and marijuana three years earlier – this led to his contract with YG Entertainment being terminated.

Most recently, on 6 February 2020 the boys released their new (third regular) EP “I Decide”.

Love life and girlfriend

While Song hasn’t talked about the rumors himself, it was reported in August 2019 that he was in a relationship with Daisy, a member of the girl group Momoland, and that they were dating for around three months at the time.

The two met years before that, and were close friends before fans saw them spending time together and kissing on multiple occasions. Song’s agency investigated the alleged relationship and eventually revealed that the two were indeed dating, but were not seeing one another often because of the obligations they have towards their groups.
