Chungha was born in Seoul, South Korea. Her family later moved to Dallas, Texas (USA), where she lived for about seven years. Therefore, she’s fluent in Korean and English.

Chungha practiced dancing for over six years before her debut. She auditioned for YG Entertainment but ultimately failed to pass. Later she auditioned for JYP Entertainment and became a trainee there but only stayed for a short period of time. She left the agency after her group broke up, which was her last hope to debut at that time.
She is now under M&H Entertainment, which was also her agency when she was participating in the music survival show “Produce 101” in 2016. She finished in fourth place and gained a lot of popularity and attention for her dancing skills. After promoting with the consequently founded group project “I.O.I”, she was able to debut as a solo artist due to her huge success.
Chungha is a humble person, who tries to keep learning and improving her skills. When she met a fan in gaming center for the show “PC bang attack”, she showed her caring and down to earth side.
Chungha is also very brave. During I.O.I.’s show “Ghost city”, she was one of the members, who was not scared of visiting the haunted houses.
Chungha’s nickname is “alcohol” because there is a brand in South Korea called “Chungha” as well.
