Childhood and Adolescence
Gong Myung was born in South Korea on May 26, 1994, as Kim Dong-hyun.
Doyoung, his younger brother, is a K-pop singer best known for being a member of the boy band NCT.
In an interview, Gong said about his younger brother: “Since he was a child, [Doyoung] has been a fantastic singer. He’d win honors for singing, but I was so concentrated on athletics when we were younger that I didn’t give it any thought. But I believe it egged [Doyoung] on a little because I made my debut first (laughter). We’re all rooting for each other. Please take a good look at us.”
