Who is Dahyun?
Kim Da-Hyun was born on 28 May 1998, in South Korea, and is a singer as well as a rapper, best known for being one of the members of the girl group Twice. The group was created by JYP Entertainment with winners from the 2015 reality television program “Sixteen”.
The Net Worth of Dahyun
As of early-2020, Dahyun has a net worth estimated to be over $1.5 million, earned largely through a successful career with the girl group Twice. She is one of the main rappers of the group, and sings regularly. She has also written songs, and has appeared in other programs during her career.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Dahyun grew up being very active in her local church, and developed her singing talents there. She also loved to dance, and as an elementary student she posted a dance on YouTube, which gained her significant attention.
In 2015, she was invited to participate in the girl group survival reality show, which pits 16 aspiring trainees together so that they could secure a spot in the upcoming girl group Twice. Each member was assessed for their abilities and dancing, plus judges and managers looked at their personality and charisma.
She was chosen along with eight other members to form this new girl band – other members include Nayeon, Tzuyu, Chaeyoung, Mina, Sana, Jihyo, Momo, and Jeongyeon. A few months after their selection for Twice, the group made their debut with the extended play (EP) called “The Story Begins”. They were marketed as a group that would touch people’s hearts with their looks and singing capabilities. The group became the first for JYE since the debut of Miss A in 2010.
Rise to Fame
Dahyun and Twice’s music was described as color pop, which integrated elements from other genres. They began performing their single “Like Ooh-Ahh” through various South Korean events, and in 2016 released a second EP called “Page Two” which included songs such as “Cheer Up”, and “I’m Gonna Be a Star” which was the theme song for the show “Sixteen”. They followed it up by working on a third EP, released as “Twicecoaster: Lane 1”, and which contained the single “TT”.
The song proved highly successful, becoming the first K-pop female act music video to surpass 100 million views on YouTube, and with which they won the Song of the Year award during the Mnet Asian Music Awards. The group began touring to promote their music, and expanded their reach to Japan, releasing albums to cater to their fan base there. They released the compilation album “#Twice” which featured both Korean and Japanese songs, and achieved platinum certification in Japan.
Afterwards they began work on their first full-length album “Twicetagram”, for which they filmed music videos in Canada. Some of their singles include “Heart Shaker” and “Look at Me”. They then became the first Korean act to attend the “68th Kohaku Uta Gassen” in six years, in Japan.
Recent Projects with Twice
Dahyun and the group continued to release singles for the Japanese market, and worked on their fifth EP called “What Is Love?” They continued achieving platinum status both in Japan and their home country. They also covered the song “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5 for the film adaptation of “Sensei Junshu”.
In 2018, they released their first Japanese studio album “BDZ”, which had the title track of the same name. They also produced their sixth EP “Yes or Yes”, which gained a lot of attention on YouTube, particularly for the same-named title track.
The following year, they launched their Twice Dome Tour 2019 “#Dreamday”, becoming the first female K-pop act to hold such a tour in Japan, with shows held in Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo.

They have sold over a million albums in South Korea for three consecutive years, and is the fifth most-streamed act on Spotify from South Korea.

She also holds Christian beliefs and is close friends with Kyulyung from Pristin. She is considered one of the favorites of the group.
She enjoys both chocolate and milk. She’s not very fond of animals.
