Jang Dongwoo 장동우 is the main rapper and main dancer of Infinite.
Dongwoo was born on Thursday, November 22, 1990, in Guri, Gyeonggi-do.
He was born in the Chinese Year of the Horse and his zodiac star sign is Sagittarius. His blood type is A. At a height of 175 cm or 5'9", he’s Infinite’s shortest member. He’s shorter than the tallest member, Sungyeol, by 8 cm.
He went to Daekyeung University, like Sunyeol and L. He majored in practical music, graduating on February 15, 2013. His older sister is named Jang Kkotip. She used to be a dancer; he learned how to dance from her. His parents own an octopus restaurant.
Dongwoo was a JYP trainee for years. When auditioning for Woollim Entertainment, he danced R&B choreography. He and Hoya were taught how to rap by Epik High‘s Mithra Jin and Gonzo. He rapped on BabySoul’s “She‘s a Flirt.” In 2014, he was on “Law of the Jungle” in Costa Rica.
Dongwoo plays the patica and the bass. If he weren’t an idol, he’d have wanted to become a Chinese herbal medicine doctor. If he had an entire day to spend however he liked, he’d want to go on a drive with his family. He skateboards and snowboards. He cries easily. He loves stuffed animals. He’s the cleanest of the Infinite members. He has a fear of bleeding. He says that if he had someone he loved on Valentine’s Day he would say, “Thanks for meeting a guy like me. Instead of the chocolates that everyone else gives, take me.”
He keeps his backpack full of items just in case they might come in handy sometime. He also keeps a journal in there, where he writes stories and daily tasks. He says that if one of the members tried to read his journal, he’d buy a bag with a lock.
Dongwoo used to share a room in the dorm with L and their manager. Like L, he’s a very heavy sleeper. After debut, his favorite of his various hairstyles was his red hair from “BTD” promotions. He chose Woohyun as the Infinite member most likely be the best at love and relationships, because Woohyun has a charm that you can’t hate even if you want to.
He’s friends with EXO’s Xiumin, since they went to high school together.
