T-Max’s Joo Chan-yang’s Debut With T-Max
Superstar K’s Joo Chan-yang joined T-MAX as a new member and debuted in the music industry on May 11, 2010.
T-Max’s agency said, “We have recruited Joo Chan-yang from Superstar K as a new member of T-Max. Following Park Yun-ha’s departure, Park Han-bi and Joo Chan-yang, who have both looks and skills, joined the existing members Shin Min-cheol and Kim Joon. We will be reborn as a group.” The agency added, “As a new member of T-Max, he will make his first appearance on stage at the same time as the release of T-Max’s first full-length album in May 2010.”
Joo Chan-yang was a trainee for about 7 years, starting from the third year of middle school, and had been honing his skills by sweating and training over and over again. In particular, he participated as a guide and in the chorus of 2PM’s “I Hate You” and “I’m Tired of Waiting,” 2AM‘s “I’m sorry I Can’t Smile,” and Tae-gun’s “I Was Deceived.” He also gained fame as an idol in charge of vocal lessons.
However, when he participated in Superstar K, he and Seo In-guk had a fierce confrontation as male R&B ballad rivals.
Joo Chan-yang, who had to go through the pain of failing auditions due to his appearance despite his outstanding skills, was expected to show off his transformation remarkably through months of rigorous training. It was expected to breathe new energy into T-Max.
It was revealed that Joo Chan-yang and Park Han-bi, who joined as new members of T-MAX, were preparing to debut as a six-member idol group in the past. Joo Chan-yang and Park Han-bi joined T-Max a year ago while preparing for their debut as a six-member idol group when they were trainees.
This fact was revealed when the profile photos of Joo Chan-yang and Park Han-bi were released while they were preparing for their group debut. In the photos, Joo Chan-yang and Park Han-bi are wearing dark, smokey makeup, black outfits, unconventional hair reminiscent of Mohicans, and charismatic eyes, creating an atmosphere similar to that of popular boy groups from those days.
A music label that saw the photo said, “I saw Joo Chan-yang in the photo and mistook him for Beast’s Yong Jun-hyung.”
Netizens who saw the published photos were also surprised by their unusual appearance and said, “If you don’t look closely, you won’t know they are the current T-Max members Joo Chan-yang and Park Han-bi” and “The two people who show off their colorful transformations are professional.”
Planet 905, the management company, said, “Joo Chan-yang and Park Han-bi are talented people who have been recognized for their skills as they tried to promote as an idol group before T-Max debuted.”
T-MAX member Joo Chan-yang revealed a photo ID from his second year of high school and proved that he has a natural face. Joo Chan-yang was recently caught in plastic surgery suspicions regarding a photo he took with Park Jae-beom.
In particular, Joo Chan-yang’s photos after losing 15 kg which had transformed into a great transformation compared to before the weight loss were engulfed in suspicion. In this regard, in order to prove the fact that the original version was unchanged, Joo Chan-yang dismissed the suspicion of plastic surgery by revealing a photo of his sophomore year of high school.
High school student Joo Chan-yang, wearing a school uniform with the name tag “Joo Chan-yang”‘ on his left chest, is nowhere to be seen after losing weight. The good-looking eyes and the slim jawline are what they look like after losing weight. It’s just a stylish hairstyle suitable for celebrity poses now, but the only difference revealed in the ID photo is the modest high school student’s neat hairstyle.
Netizens who saw the ID photo said, “After checking the photo of him as a handsome boy in high school, it certainly doesn’t seem to have changed at all due to double jaw surgery. This doesn’t cost losing weight really nicely,” wrote a netizen who praised Joo Chan-yang’s amazing weight loss.
Before joining T-Max, Joo Chan-yang had to work hard as a contestant on Superstar K. He then lost 15 kg through a harsh diet and succeeded in transforming to such an extent that even friends around him could not recognize Joo Chan-yang.
The agency Planet 905 said, “After experiencing setbacks in Superstar K, Joo Chan-yang decided to lose weight for the sake of his life’s greatest goal as a singer.” Joo Chan-yang also said, “I can’t put into words the blood and sweat I put in to the extent of being suspected of plastic surgery.”
