Yoochun’s nickname “Micky” was his English name when he lived in the United States.

Yoochun was born in Seoul, but he moved with his family to the United States when he was in sixth grade. He lived in Fairfax, Virginia, where he attended middle and high school before returning to South Korea after being scouted by Brothers Entertainment.
