Early Career

Kim Dayeon was born in South Korea on March 2, 2003. She was raised by her parents, who own and operate a sushi business in Seoul. She, who has been blessed with attractive visuals since childhood, began her career in the industry at a young age.

Dayeon first debuted in the KBS2 ‘Famous Princesses’ when she was three years old. Dayeon went on to perform more roles in Kdrama and movies like ‘My Wife Got Married,’ despite previously telling a fan that she had no plans to become an actress as a child.

In her childhood, Kim Dayeon’s beautiful beauty garnered her many CF and modeling contracts for a range of businesses.

Produce 48

Dayeon entered the Produce 48 lineup at the age of 15 after eight months of training under CNC Entertainment.

She got off to a terrific start on the show at first, earning a B in the initial judges’ evaluations. Her cheerful personality, as well as her improving dancing and singing ability, drew in a large number of people.

Despite her talent, Dayeon’s ranking dropped during the course of the competition. In episode one, she was ranked 60th, but by episode three, she had dropped to 70th place.

New Home

Dayeon joined Stardium Entertainment in December 2018. She stayed there for another two years of training. However, it appears that the organization had no intentions to debut a group anytime soon, which could explain why Kim Dayeon decided to switch agencies again.

She found a new home at Jellyfish Entertainment, the home of VIXX and VERIVERY, in late 2020 or early 2021. And it was already been confirmed that she’s one of the candidates on Girls Planet 999 last July 2021.
