Introduction

Jeongyeon (Hangul: 정연) is a South Korean singer under JYP Entertainment. She is a member of the girl group TWICE.

On May 5, 2015, she became a contestant on JYP's newest survival show, SIXTEEN. She finished the survival in 3rd place, hence becoming a member of the girl group TWICE. They officially debuted on October 20, 2015, with their first mini album, The Story Begins.

On June 22, 2016, SBS revealed that Jeongyeon, alongside her sister Gong Seung Yeon and actor Kim Min Su, would be the new MCs for the music show Inkigayo. She worked on the music show until January 22, which was her last episode. On that day, Jeongyeon posted a message on Twitter to thank fans for supporting her.

On 17 October 2020, JYP Entertainment announced that Jeongyeon would be taking a break from all activities due to anxiety. She resumed her activities from 31 January 2021 at 30th Seoul Music Awards. On 18 August 2021, JYP Entertainment announced that Jeongyeon would be taking a second break from all activities due to panic and anxiety disorder.

Fun facts

1
Jeongyeon loves playing with legos and has a whole collection in her room.
2
Jeongyeon and KARD's Somin are related, they're cousins by marriage.
3
Jeongyeon's poodle's name is "Nanan" because when she was young, she loved Nana from the Teletubbies (the yellow one) so much that she would introduce herself as"Nanan-ie" to people. She has another dog, a Pomeranian, named Bbosongie.
4
Jeongyeon’s birth name is Yoo Kyung Wan, but she changed her name in 3rd grade because she was teased because her name sounded like a "boy’s name."
5
Jeongyeon actually failed her first audition at JYP. She auditioned a second time, also trying out with SM Entertainment; she received a spot at both companies, but chose JYP. All I could find on why was she say (basically) "I never thought of debuting with another company other than JYP."
6
In TWICE's music video, "Feel Special" Jeongyeon was matched with herself. In the video, when the two Jeongyeons' eyes meet, one looks back at the rest of TWICE and smiles.
7
Jeongyeon came in second in votes for being the leader of the group before debuting. Even though it went to Jihyo, Jeongyeon is sort of the mom of the house - she does most of the cleaning and is the first one to step up and scold the other members if they're being messy or improper.
8
Jeongyeon worked as a barista to help out a friend, no one recognized her and she didn't play any TWICE songs at the cafe.
