DBSK - Changmin's Story
Changmin was born on February 18th, 1988. Both of his parents are teacher. When he was young, his dream is to became a TV announcer.
He lived with his family in Seoul but was nearly kicked out of his house one day in second grade as he had to “relieve” himself and ended up peeing from the roof on the woman living downstairs!
He is the eldest in family, he has two sisters.
One time he followed his friend to SM contest and he won the best singer award.
The time and effort required as a trainee was taxing, because it forced him to be away from his family and miss out on student life. He was sad he never got to experience that. Even when he missed his family he started to cry.
Changmin always give the best in singing, when he sing not really good he will be crying. But he has a brave side to him too. Starting from elementary school in 6th grade, he delivered newspapers as a part-time job
He has been trained for 2 years before debuted in Dong Bang Shin Ki. He used stage name as Choikang. In English it means Max.
He joined the band under the name Choikang Changmin (최강창민; the English counterpart to his stage name is Max). In Korea, Choikang means “the best”. That’s why his English counter part is Max, short for Maximum.
