Gong Chansik 공찬식 is the maknae and visual of B1A4.
Gongchan was born on Saturday, August 14, 1993 in Suncheon, Jeollam-do. The age gap between him and B1A4's oldest member, CNU, is 2 years, 1 month, and 29 days.
He was born in the Chinese Year of the Rooster and his zodiac star sign is Leo. He's 181 cm or 5'11½" tall. Gongchan, CNU, Jinyoung, and Sandeul share the blood type A.
He attended the Seoul School of Performing Arts. He also went to Suncheon Isu Middle School.
He has a younger brother named Minwoo. Even though he's B1A4's maknae, he has a mature side because of his role as hyung in his own family.
Gongchan was a trainee for at least 2 years. In 2015, he became an MC on the fourth season of KBS' variety show "A Song for You," along with f(x)’s Amber and Super Junior’s Kangin.
The first time he recorded a song, Gongchan was so nervous that his voice “froze to a point where [he] couldn‘t hear it.” But the thought of his hyungs cheerfully singing empowered him to start recording again. When he was content with the recording, Gongchan flashed a “shining halo” of a smile.
Because of Gongchan's shyness during his trainee days, his hyungs assumed that he was chic.
One of his favorite singers is Super Junior's Donghae.
His hobbies are swimming, reading manga, and taekwondo.
Of the B1A4 members, Gongchan is the best at math.
