LIFE AND CAREER

EARLY LIFE

Kang Seung-yoon
Kang Seung-yoon
was born in Busan , South Korea on January 21, 1994. He learned to play the guitar in the eighth grade . When he was in his last year of junior high , he took lessons in both classic guitar and billiards, going on to become the regional representative for billiards.

2010–2012: CAREER BEGINNINGS, _SUPERSTAR K2_, AND _HIGH KICK_

In 2010, Seungyoon was a contestant on Mnet reality TV singing contest _Superstar K2_ . He finished in fourth place, having released two singles, "I'll Write You a Letter" and "Instinctively". "I'll Write You a Letter" peaked at number 24 on the Gaon Chart after its release on the _Superstar K2: Top 6 (My Story)_ album, while "Instinctively" became a number one single in Korea and one of the top 100 songs of the year. It was released on its own as a digital single later in the _Superstar K2_ compilation album, _Superstar K2 Up to 11_. He also released "Life is Tab" along with three other contestants to promote the Samsung Galaxy Tab .

After initial success with Superstar K2, CEO Yang Hyun-suk signed Kang to YG Entertainment on January 12, 2011. Kang also released a single, "You Are Heaven", for the soundtrack of the Korean drama _Midas _.

Seungyoon graduated from Busan High School of Arts with a major in classic guitar in 2012. That year, he appeared on MBC 's sitcom _High Kick: Revenge of the Short Legged _. He plays as a young man with a heavy southern-Korean accent who arrives in Seoul dreaming to become the President. The series aired from 19 September 2011 to 29 March 2012.

2013–PRESENT: SOLO DEBUT, DEBUT WITH WINNER, AND ACTING CAREER

On June 20, 2013, Yang Hyun-suk announced on YG Life that Seungyoon would be debuting as a solo artist with the single "Wild and Young" composed by Teddy Park . On July 15, it was announced that Seungyoon's debut would be postponed and the following day, another single from his upcoming mini-album titled "It Rains" was released instead. "It Rains" achieved an all-kill by placing at number one on all nine major real-time charts in Korea. Seungyoon thanked the YG Family and his fans for their support. On July 31, "Wild and Young" was released with two more title tracks set to be promoted in August and September. Live promotions of the single commenced on August 4 on _ Inkigayo _.

On August 14, Seungyoon's second single "Stealer" (Korean : 맘도둑) was released. The music video, starring rookie actress Yoon Jin-yi , was "filmed secretly" and released without promotions so as not to disrupt the promotions for "Wild and Young".

Seungyoon then participated in the survival reality program _WIN: Who Is Next_. The program would involve two teams of YG trainees (A and B) that would compete against each other for the chance to debut at the end of the series. In the seventh episode of _WIN: Who Is Next_, Seungyoon replaced bandmate Song Min-ho as the leader of "Team A". On October 25, it was announced that Team A had won the series and would debut as Winner. The group performed as the opening act of Big Bang 's Japan Dome Tour which started on November 15, and made their own official debut on August 12, 2014.

In 2015, Seungyoon appeared as the male lead in the web drama _We Broke Up _, alongside label-mate Sandara Park . The 10-episode drama was aired from June 29 to July 17 via Naver TV Cast. He then made a cameo appearance in KBS 's _The Producers _ together with Sandara and label-mate Jisoo of Black Pink .

In November 2016, it was announced that Seungyoon will be starring in the web drama _ Love for a Thousand More _ alongside fellow member Kim Jin-woo . The web drama is a joint production of CJ E">KOR Gaon
