Life and Career

1997-2017: Early life, 3RACHA and Survival Show

Bang Chan was born in October 1997 as the eldest son of three children in Seoul, South Korea. During his childhood, Chan moved to Sydney, Australia and moved homes many times. He took dance classes including ballet and modern dance. He also enjoyed playing sports and won many swimming awards. In 2010, at the age of 13, he passed a local audition in Australia for the K-pop label JYP Entertainment. Despite his young age, he moved to Korea to train at JYPE. During his time at the company, Chan made many close friends including GOT7, TWICE and DAY6. Chan trained at JYPE for 7 years, watching his trainee friends debut without him.

In late 2016, Bang Chan formed a unit titled 3RACHA with members Han (J.ONE) and Changbin (SPEARB). On January 18, 2017, they uploaded their first untitled mixtape, J:/2017/mixtape, onto SoundCloud, consisting of seven tracks. The unit continued to release self-composed extended plays on Soundcloud.

It was then revealed in August 2017, that JYPE was having a reality survival show to launch a male idol group. Bang Chan was the leader of the 9 member "Male Group Project", including Han and Changbin.

In December 2017, it was revealed that Bang Chan would finally debut as the leader of the boy group "Stray Kids".
