Stray Kids’ Seungmin’s Pre-Debut
Before Seungmin was known as one of the members of Stray Kids, he was just an ordinary little boy who came from the capital city, Seoul. Seungmin was born and raised in Seoul. He was born on September 22, 2000, in Gangnam, Seoul, one of the high-class districts in the city. He lived with his parent and an older sister who was born in 1993.
As a kid, Seungmin was not just a cute boy like we see in his pre-debut pictures, he already had a skill in singing. No wonder, a friend from his high school, Lee Daehwi, asked him to join an audition for a K-pop company. Yes, it’s that Lee Daehwi that you may know, Daehwi from AB6IX.
Seungmin was a student in Cheongdam High School at that time, and Daehwi was his school mate is also one of his closest friends. They went together in every condition, although they weren’t in the same class. Then one day, Daehwi who was a trainee in JYP Entertainment asked Seungmin to join an audition for JYP Entertainment. Daehwi convinced Seungmin to join until he finally wanted to go to the audition.
Due to his amazing vocals, Seungmin passed the audition. However, he couldn’t be in the same agency as his best friend because Daehwi moved to another company. In 2016, Seungmin officially became a trainee in JYP Entertainment. Even without Daehwi, he still managed to get close to other trainees there.
In 2017, Seungmin became one of the participants of the survival program Stray Kids. It was a program that later formed a new boy group of JYP Entertainment. All the members were chosen by Bang Chan, the leader, who happened to be Seungmin’s senior in high school.
