Chang was born in Seoul on February 20, 1982. His father ran a manufacturing company, and Chang later said he did not experience any financial hardships growing up. Chang graduated from the prestigious Seoul National University. While in college, he played drums for the rock group Nunco Band.
Chang debuted with his indie rock band Kiha & The Faces in 2008. The band's first single, "Cheap Coffee," was a hit, and the band has since become one of South Korea's most popular indie rock groups.
Kiha is known for his specific style of music, where he "talks like he sings, sings like he talks.”
Kiha does his own thing. Dramabeans have once reviewed him as "the guy who's so unconcerned with being cool that he IS cool. By ignoring trends, he thereby sets his own."
