Hwang Chan-sung (Korean: 황찬성, born February 11, 1990),[1] also known mononymously as Chansung, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, rapper and actor. He is a member of the Korean boy band 2PM. Chansung made his debut as an actor in the 2006 comedy series Unstoppable High Kick, and since then has gone on to star in the Japanese drama Kaitō Royale (2011) and 7th Grade Civil Servant (2013).

Early life

Chansung was born in Seoul, South Korea, where he still resides. Chansung was educated at Korean Arts High School and Howon University.[2]



Chansung was a television actor, having played roles in MBC's 2006 comedy sitcom Unstoppable High Kick and then in KBS2's 2008 teen drama Jungle Fish.[3] It was also during this time, in 2006, that he auditioned for, and was named, one of the dozen finalists (including his future bandmates Lee Junho and Taecyeon) to compete in the show "Superstar Survival".[4]

Music career

In 2008, he took part in Mnet's Hot Blood Men which follows the extreme training of 13 trainees in order to become a member of the boy band One Day. One Day spawned two boy bands, 2AM and 2PM, of which the latter one Chansung became a member of. Six months after Hot Blood was aired on TV, 2PM debuted with their first single "10점 만점에 10점" ("10 Points out of 10 Points")[5] from their first EP Hottest Time of the Day, but it wasn't until their second EP 2:00PM Time For Change which skyrocketed their success in the Korean music industry. As of 2017, the group has released six studio albums in Korea and four studio albums in Japan.

Personal life

Chansung speaks fluent Korean, intermediate Japanese, and basic English. He is also trained martial artist, having achieved high levels in Taekwondo and Kumdo. Chansung revealed on Our Neighborhood Arts and Physical Education that he holds a 3rd degree black belt in Taekwondo.[6]

Fitness Center

On June 1, 2012 JYP Entertainment announced through their official Twitter that Chansung will be opening a fitness center with his weight trainer, Hwang Mo.[7] The fitness center is located in Nonhyun-dong (논현동), Seoul.[8]

Military Enlistment

Chansung enlisted in the Army for his mandatory military service on June 11, 2019.[9]
