Early Life of Kim

Early Life of Kim

Kim was born on February 3, 1984, in Gyeonggi, South Korea. Although he was a shy and quiet child, he showed artistic skills from a young age. Due to his introverted nature, he doesn’t make friends. That is why his books and novels were his sole sources of company. He excelled academically and was beloved by all of his teachers.

When he was a child, he wanted to be a writer more than anything else. But, after being introduced to American rap music, he became interested in it and began creating his rap rhymes. Also, he started writing poetry, which helped him become well-known during his final year in school. He claims that he has always been an over-thinker, which is one of the key causes of his pessimistic outlook on life and his extremely poor self-confidence. He says that his lack of confidence has never changed.

Kim, who is naturally pessimistic, never imagined himself as a musician. He was a natural pessimist who had no interest in music. The change took place only after he began meeting people with corporate executives who urged him to try music. It all worked out for the best, and he soon joined the band T-Max.
