Jaemin, born Park Jaemin, is a South Korean hip-hop artist born on July 9th, 1995. He was raised in the Gangnam district of Seoul and spent his childhood surrounded by music – from rock to rap. His father was a classical music professor at a university and his mother sang in choirs around the city.

At the age of 15, Jaemin began writing and recording his own songs. He quickly gained traction among underground circles in the South Korean hip-hop community for his unique sound and lyrical content. In 2015, he released his first EP titled "My Story," which featured tracks like "Clap Clap" and "Beep Beep." The project received critical acclaim, as Jaemin showcased an impressive level of lyricism and storytelling abilities.

In 2017, Jaemin landed a record deal with SM Entertainment – one of Korea's largest music labels – to release his debut album "Korean Dream." The album peaked at number 5 on the Korean charts and spawned singles such as "Forever" and "Don't Let Go." The success of this project solidified Jaemin's place among the leading forces of Korea's hip-hop scene.

Since then, Jaemin has gone on to collaborate with some of the biggest names in K-pop including EXO, Red Velvet, NCT Dream, and NCT 127. He has also been featured in various television shows such as Mnet's Show Me The Money 6 and MBC's King Of Mask Singer. Currently signed to SM Entertainment, he continues to make waves in both Korea’s rap scene and mainstream pop industry.
