Choiza Debut with Dynamic Duo
After his career with CB Mass ended, Choiza stayed together with Gaeko and they came up with a brand new duo called Dynamic Duo. Their debut project Taxi Driver was released in 2004, and successfully made it as one of the best-selling Korean Hip-Hop albums!
During his career with Dynamic Duo, they have released a bunch of studio albums, such as Double Dynamite, Enlightened, Last Days, Lucky Numbers, Off Duty, and many more. Dynamic Duo’s popularity increased even more after the single “BAAAM” was released in July 2013, which marked their collaboration with Muzie of UV as well.
One of their best performances was at the KCON 2016 in New York, KCON 2018 in Los Angeles, as well as their live performance during the “BAAAM” era. Their famous collaboration with EXO’s Chen also happened twice, in 2017 through the single “Nosedive” and in 2020 through the single “You”.
Outside his activity with Dynamic Duo, Choiza has also made several collaborations with other artists, such as Primary, Microdot, Crush, and many more. Not only that, but Choiza also featured in some singles from certain artists and the latest one was 3 Mins by HA:TFELT!
Choiza used to be in a relationship with former f(x) member Sulli for three years. Their relationship was revealed in September 2013, after the two of them were caught by paparazzi while hanging out together. At first, their agencies denied the dating rumor and stated that they were just friends. From that moment, Sulli received a bunch of nonsense rumors.
Then it was also revealed that Choiza had put Sulli’s photo in his wallet. But still, both of them still denied the dating rumor. When their moments in Namsan Tower were caught in August 2014, Sulli’s agency confirmed that she and Choiza were officially dating. Unfortunately, their relationship ended in March 2017.
During their relationship, both Choiza and Sulli received a bunch of malicious comments from people. People thought that they weren’t meant for each other, since Sulli was known for her ‘innocent’ image, while Choiza was 14 years older than her and had an opposite image from Sulli.
The cyberbullying increased even more after Sulli’s death in 2019, since some people blamed Choiza for his ex-girlfriend’s death. Although Choiza revealed his sadness over Sulli’s death in an Instagram post, people still bullied him with malicious words which led him to disable his comment section on Instagram.
