Hwang Chan-sung (Korean : 황찬성, born February 11, 1990), 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).
The Korean language is an East Asian language spoken by about 80 million people. It is a member of the Koreanic language family and is the official and national language of both Koreas: North Korea and South Korea, with different standardized official forms used in each territory. It is also one of the two official languages in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture and Changbai Korean Autonomous County of Jilin province, China. Historical and modern linguists classify Korean as a language isolate; however, it does have a few extinct relatives, which together with Korean itself and the Jeju language form the Koreanic language family. This implies that Korean is not an isolate, but a member of a micro-family. The idea that Korean belongs to the controversial Altaic language family is discredited in academic research. Korean is agglutinative in its morphology and SOV in its syntax.
2PM (Hangul: 투피엠) is a South Korean boy band formed by JYP Entertainment. The current members are Jun. K, Nichkhun, Taecyeon, Wooyoung, Junho and Chansung. Former leader Jay Park officially left the band in early 2010.
Kaitō Royale (怪盗ロワイヤル) is a Japanese television drama series based on a video game from DeNA. It premiered on TBS on 28 October 2011. The theme song of the series is Lock On by Yui.
Chansung was born in Seoul, South Korea, where he still resides. Chansung was educated at Korean Arts High School and Howon University.[ citation needed ]
Seoul, officially the Seoul Special City, is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea. With surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, Seoul forms the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, home to roughly half of the country's population. Seoul is ranked as the fourth largest metropolitan economy in the world and is larger than London and Paris.
Korean Arts High School is an arts high school in Hongik-dong, Seongdong District, Seoul, South Korea.
Howon University is a private four-year comprehensive university located in Gunsan, South Korea. It is renowned for its high employment rate for its graduates.
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 .[ citation needed ] 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".[ citation needed ]
Jungle Fish is a South Korean youth drama based on a true story that depicts the pressures placed on students to achieve and gain admission to prestigious colleges and universities. Its sequel Jungle Fish 2 aired two years later with a different cast.
Lee Jun-ho, known mononymously as Junho, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, dancer, composer and actor. He is a member of the South Korean boy band 2PM.
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") 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.[ citation needed ]
Mnet is a South Korean pay television music channel owned by CJ E&M, a division of CJ Group.
2AM is a South Korean boy group, that consisted of Jo Kwon, Lee Changmin, Lim Seulong and Jeong Jinwoon.

They won their first Mutizen at Inkigayo on February 7, 2010, with "Can't Let You Go Even If I Die".
An extended play record, often referred to as an EP, is a musical recording that contains more tracks than a single, but is usually unqualified as an album or LP. EPs generally contain a minimum of four tracks and maximum of six tracks, and are considered "less expensive and time-consuming" for an artist to produce than an album. An EP originally referred to specific types of vinyl records other than 78 rpm standard play (SP) and LP, but it is now applied to mid-length CDs and downloads as well.
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.[ citation needed ]
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art, characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques.
Kumdo is a modern Korean martial art derived from Japanese Kendo. Though romanized in a number ways when written Kǒmdo or Geomdo the meaning remains "the way of the sword" and is cognate with the Japanese term. As a martial art, Kumdo has become accepted in Korean culture and society since its introduction from Japan to the degree that the term "Kumdo" has, in recent history, become a generic label for other Korean martial arts based upon swordsmanship. As a result, caution should be exercised to avoid confusion among practices espousing martial rather than sporting and competitive goals. Although related to Japanese Kendo, minor differences exist in Korean Kumdo due to appropriation and acculturation. Such differences include, but are not limited to, the use of native terminology, the use of blue flags rather than red flags for the referees and minor modifications to the uniform.
Our Neighborhood Arts and Physical Education, also known as Cool Kiz on The Block, was a South Korean television sports variety show which premiered on 9 April 2013 on KBS2. It was the replacement show of Moonlight Prince. The program's last episode aired on 4 October 2016 and it was succeeded by Trick & True.
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.[ citation needed ] The fitness center is located in Nonhyun-dong (논현동), Seoul.[ citation needed ]
