Kim Chungha, widely recognized under the mononym Chungha, is a highly regarded South Korean singer, dancer, and songwriter. This multitalented artist first came into the public eye as a member of the project group I.O.I, which was formed through the popular survival reality show “Produce 101.” Since then, she has embarked on a successful solo career, becoming one of the leading figures in K-pop’s next generation.
From her first mini-album “Hands on Me” to her latest full album “Querencia,” Chungha has demonstrated a versatile musical style, exploring different genres from pop and dance to R&B and Latin. Her debut single “Why Don’t You Know” featured rapper Nucksal and charted well on South Korea’s Gaon Digital Chart. However, her true breakout hit was “Gotta Go,” the lead single from her single album “XII.” This track saw considerable success both domestically and internationally, helping solidify Chungha’s standing as a solo artist.
Over her career, Chungha has collaborated with a myriad of artists across diverse genres, further expanding her musical horizons. She joined forces with rapper Changmo for the track “Remedy,” and collaborated with R&B singer Grizzly on “Run.” In the international music scene, Chungha featured in Rich Brian‘s “These Nights” and worked with Danish singer Christopher on “Bad Boy.” In addition, she participated in collaborations with several K-pop artists, including Yesung from Super Junior in “Whatcha Doin’,” Ravi from VIXX in “Live,” and Rain in “Why Don’t We.” Her collaborations further extend to a spectacular stage performance with Hwasa of Mamamoo at the Mnet Asian Music Awards in 2018 and her involvement in the project single “Wow Thing” with other female K-pop idols including Seulgi, SinB, and Soyeon.
Chungha has collected a commendable number of trophies since her debut. Her hit song “Gotta Go” won her first music show win on “Show Champion” and earned her the Digital Bonsang at the 34th Golden Disc Awards. In 2020, she received the prestigious Mnet Asian Music Award for Best Female Artist. Her album “Querencia” was celebrated as Album of the Year at the Korean Music Awards.
