Han Jisung, also known as Han, is a South Korean rapper, singer, and producer best known as a member of the K-pop group Stray Kids. With his sharp rapping, smooth vocals, and producing talents, Jisung has emerged as one of the most charismatic and versatile idols of his generation.

Background and Training Period

Jisung was born on September 14, 2000 in Incheon, South Korea. He became interested in hip-hop music and dance at a young age. In middle school, he started writing lyrics and learning to rap on his own.

In 2017, Jisung competed on the JYP Entertainment survival show "Stray Kids," where he honed his skills with some of the industry‘s top trainers. His incredible talent and charming personality made him a standout contestant. After the show, he debuted as Stray Kids‘ main rapper.

Rising to Fame with Stray Kids

Jisung made his official debut with Stray Kids in March 2018 with their mini album "I Am Not." As the group‘s main rapper, his fast-paced, emotional rhymes complimented their intense hip-hop and EDM style.

He helped write lyrics and produce their breakthrough singles:

  • "District 9" – Stray Kids‘ explosive debut song that showcased their powerful sound
  • "My Pace" – An energetic synth-pop track with Jisung‘s signature rapid-fire rapping
  • "God‘s Menu" – A hip-hop track that exemplified Stray Kids‘ versatility, with Jisung contributing to producing

In just a few years, Stray Kids‘ popularity has skyrocketed. They have:

Jisung continues to be an integral part of Stray Kids‘ creative direction and success.

Pursuing a Successful Solo Career

In addition to his work with Stray Kids, Jisung has also found success as a soloist. In 2019, he released his first solo mixtape "Clé 1: MIROH," showing off his talents as a lyricist, composer, and producer.

Other notable solo work includes:

  • "Dive Into You" (2021) – A sentimental pop collab with American singer Seori that hit #1 on global iTunes charts
  • "Another Day" (2021) OST – Penned and composed by Jisung for the popular Kdrama "Imitation"
  • "Cheese" (2022) – Jisung‘s first fully English solo release that highlighted his musical versatility

As a soloist, Jisung has proven that his artistry extends far beyond the boundaries of Stray Kids. I‘m excited to see him continue to take on new challenges and share more of his musical colors.
