Chul Chung was born in Kwangwon-do, South Korea, on January, 24, 1970, and soon moved to Seoul, where he spent most of his boyhood. He received elementary education in Yongsan School, Kosack School and Songjon School, and finished higher education in Shinchon Middle School and Yongdong High School. He then entered Seoul National University in 1988. He showed interest/talent in object analysis at the age 6 by asking mom where the tab water originates from. His environment including his mother was never helpful in satisfying his curiousity, which instigated philosophical thinking on various topics. His independence was seemingly formed this way, and got strengthened as he grew up.
