Let’s see the full story of Jaehyeong’s pre-debut era below!
Jaehyeong was born with the name Lee Jaehyeong. He was born in Gangwon-do, Samcheok-si, South Korea on November 3rd, 1994. There, he spent his childhood and lived with his parents. Even when he was young, he was already into music. He also learned hapkido when he was in elementary school. Jaehyeong attended the schools in Samcheok-si until he graduated from high school.
When he was in the third year of high school Jaehyeong got accepted into a K-pop agency in Seoul. He then left his hometown and became a trainee of the Music Works agency. At first, he was trained to be a member of a dance group. But since the trainees had talent in musical instruments, the group changed to a band instead. Especially Jaehyeong caught the attention with his bass, even though he also can play the guitar.
Jaehyeong met Kim Jaehwan the solo artist and ex-WANNA ONE member, when he was a trainee. They prepared to be part of a band named Sherlock that also included other members, such as Matthew, Min Chanki, and Kim Yijae.
Jaehyeong also appeared once as a guitarist for the musician called Gilgoo Bonggu (GB9) and performed a song named “DalAh” on Mnet Countdown in 2014.
In 2015, Jaehyeong met Dojoon and they often went busking in Hongdae street, one of the busiest streets in Seoul where musicians like to have live performances. However, Dojoon was a trainee of DSP Media at that time. He was busy with the trainee schedule, so he couldn’t go there often.
Jaehyeong then met Hajoon, he is a drummer and he can sing too. The two of them went busking in Hongdae street while Dojoon busy with his trainee schedule. But in the end, Dojoon left his agency and became a part of their busking band. They named themselves Windfall and became an indie band.
After he was sure to be a bassist, he only searched for an agency that wanted to debut a band instead of an idol group. Therefore, he got accepted as a trainee in J&Star Company who later on debuted him as a member of the band called The Rose.

He became the new member of Windfall. The band then had four members. And their formation has become complete too.
