He was born on March 22, 1986, in Anaheim, California. Korean ancestry, and his parents run a music business named “Grace Store” named after his grandmother. His father plays the autoharp. Choi says that his mother was an artistic, artistic mother, and his father was a musical, musical father, and because of this, he never thought he would become a musician.
Choi had to play the piano and violin when he was young, an experience that he hated. In reality, the parents would scold Choi for not doing his practice. However, he did recall wanting to destroy his violin numerous times. One of the Internet sensations comments that, because he hated practicing, he eventually developed an intense hatred for the violin and piano, and then, as a result, he hated music as well. Even while he didn’t particularly enjoy leaving class each week to attend his orchestra lesson, Choi does acknowledge that it was great when he was able to do it twice a week. One of Choi’s classmates said that the class was less difficult for him than for other students since he had previously completed a significant portion of the curriculum through individual sessions.
How, exactly, did the unkempt musician end up playing the concertmaster of his high school orchestra? He played classical and jazz music, but until sixth grade, when he heard Smash Mouth’s “All Star,” he had never heard a pop song. He tried to play the song “All the Small Things” by blink-182 after hearing it on the radio. As his appreciation for pop music grew, Choi began listening to more and more pop songs and was soon infatuated with Boyz II Men, the Backstreet Boys, and Japanese pop. During junior high, when most kids were going to bed, Choi would remain up listening to the radio, recording the music and would then construct mix tapes for himself. Following that, Choi began to write his own songs and the first of them was an instrumental work known as “Lost Memory,” which was composed on the piano. Choi continued to play in the school orchestra even after discovering pop music. The kids’ musicianship teacher, who had wanted Choi to participate in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) orchestra, told his parents that Choi had to audition. Choi rehearsed with this orchestra every Tuesday to become the perfect conductor.
By the time he had graduated from high school, Choi had quit taking violin classes and started learning jazz piano. The honor he received was for winning an instrumental pop song contest with the tune “I’m Really Happy When.”
