Background

Mark Yi-Eun Tuan, or just Mark Tuan, was born in Los Angeles, California on September 4, 1993. He’s the older brother to two sisters, Tammy and Grace, and a brother, Joey. Tuan grew up in California, though he did live in Brazil and Paraguay for years before returning to Cali, where he went to Arcadia High School. Chris Brown, Drake, ASAP Rocky, and Tyga are among his all-time favorite musicians. Tuan is said to be the closest to Jackson of all the ‘Got7’ members because they were dormmates.

Tuan hadn’t ever considered a music career, but his educators strongly urged him to learn music and compete in music contests while he was in school. Tuan consented to try it out despite his initial reluctance. He auditioned for a South Korean entertainment agency named JYP Entertainment, which ended up transforming his life. Tuan’s performance of Eminem’s “When I’m Gone” wowed the producers, after which he was promptly added to the agency’s portfolio. Tuan then relocated to South Korea, where he began formal singing training.

Tuan mastered the Korean language in addition to receiving music lessons. After around three and a half years, he was confirmed as a part of the pop group “Got7.” He became the group’s primary rapper, vocalist, and dancer. He would later record his debut single, “Girls Girls Girls” with his pop band. His good looks and delightful personality helped him become one of the most popular ‘Got7’ performers. Together with his bandmates, he appeared in the drama “Dream Knight.” Tuan’s extraordinary skills have earned him multiple prizes and accolades, and he is also quite famous on social media.
