Call him Dong Dong, which is the other name, a nick name his team mates call him. He was born Kim Donghyuk in January 3rd 1997 in Seoul, South Korea.

He is a known winner; he had previously won the JYP Trainee search of March 2012 and was a core member in the Def Music & Dance Academy before he was recruited into YG late 2012 just 8 years after his father had passed on.

Dong Dong, his known for his flair in arithmetic and his quick analysis of questions, he is considered the cleverest in the group and he is often bashed by some of his members, particularly BI.

But not withstanding, his leadership and skill set started when he was in school, he was an OSIS manager and later a member of the school organizing committee.

All those skills set he has acquired makes him a multi talented individual who can sing, dance and his smart at school.

Skils

Dong is known to have mastered the art of playing instruments like guitars, piano, drums and reportedly some traditional musical instruments native to South Korea. He is also so good at dancing that the group leader B.I trusts in him when they are performing any dance moves on stage.

The CEO children are his biggest fan and there was a time when that fact was mentioned during one of the reality shows Mix & Match, he is the face of iKon a position he claimed from Yunhyeong and has never looked back since.

Personality

He cares about his team mates, often crying when he was in the show when some members were eliminated or there were member rearrangement in previous Team B.

Fans witnessed his caring nature when he presented June with a pair of jeans when he was about to perform in the final episode of Mix & Match, it seems that gift was what June needed before they fused into the present iKon pop group they both feature in.

What is outstanding about Donghyuk is his unique ear bone piercing, the weepy-weepy type of piercings, the way he makes his hair and the glasses he wears.

He is referred by his fans as the fake maknae after the arrival of Chanwoo and Yunhyeong, contrary to what many people believe, he didn’t injure his ankle when he was performing his acrobatic dance in the finals of Mix & Match where he performed with Chanwoo and Jinhyeong in the song “All of Me”
