South Korean singer, rapper and actor, Kim Jonghyeon is more commonly known by the mononym Jonghyeon or his stage name ‘JR’. He debuted in March 2012 as the main rapper, main dancer, and leader of the boy group NU’EST under the name ‘JR’. In 2017, Kim Jonghyeon participated in Mnet’s ‘Produce 101 Season 2’, where he ultimately ranked 14th. 

NU’EST disbanded earlier this year in March 2022, as Kim Jonghyeon and follow members Aron and Ren chose not to renew their contract with their then-agency, PLEDIS Entertainment.

All the best to Kim Jonghyeon for his new beginning!
