Jeongyeon (Twice) is a female idol loved and sought after by many fans with her sweet, powerful voice. She also attracted attention for her weight gain, but she has gradually regained her form and tried to lose weight to improve her appearance.

Known as the main vocalist in the popular group Twice, Jeongyeon possesses a beautiful, feminine appearance and sweet voice. But according to Koreaboo, before owning the current name Jeongyeon, she had an unhappy past when she was often bullied by her friends just because of her birth name.

The female singer's birth name is Yoo Kyung Wan, born in 1996. Jeongyeon once said that according to Chinese characters, the rough meaning of the two words Kyung Wan can be read as "delicate and graceful" or "talented". and beautiful". This seems to suit her appearance quite well, but this name causes certain problems.

The reason that is a concern is because in Korea, Kyung Wan is a name usually given to men, not common to women. That's why Jeongyeon is often teased by her friends, criticizing her name Kyung Wan for sounding like a b.oy's name. The daily teasing gradually became pent up, uncomfortable and stressful, making Jeongyeon unable to continue to endure.

She expressed her wish for her parents to change her name. In the end, the singer's mother decided to change her daughter's name to Jeongyeon, meaning "a beautiful person". In Chinese, this name means "a long stability". Although the current name is less meaningful than the birth name, it is completely feminine.

Jeongyeon has two older sisters and one of them is actress Gong Seung-Yeon. Her father is a chef who worked for former Korean president Kim Dae-Jung. When she was young, she also participated in aerobics classes, so she soon developed her love of singing and dancing.

As a c.hild, Jeongyeon failed an audition to join JYP Entertainment. However, she successfully joined the company when she passed the open audition in March 2010. Before debuting with the group Twice, she was trained by the company for about 5 years.
