When it comes to the Power of a Female we know that the sky is truly the limit. With the recent induction of Missy Elliott into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, we are seeing females dominate the industry all across the board.

When it comes to the World of DJs, there are many Great names that we can call but very few are females. That changes today! Allow me to introduce you to DJ K Yung!

Born in the capital of Seoul, South Korea, DJ K Yung has a story unlike most. Abandoned after birth and left on the doorstep of a police station, DJ K Yung was not expected to become anything but a number in their system. After months in an orphanage, she was adopted and brought to Minneapolis Minnesota. Growing up in the Midwest, DJ K Yung was surrounded by her new family’s musical influence at a very young age. During her high school years, a friend introduced her to DJing but the story didn't take off from there. After nothing came of it, it was during the summer of 2007 that she was asked to pick up DJing for a friend at her sisters' graduation party. It was at this moment that K Yung knew DJing was what she was meant to do.

In a field that is dominated by men, K Yung knew climbing the ropes wouldn't be an easy task. Furthermore, being a female of Asian descent was sure to come with its challenges as well. However, she was determined to make her mark on the industry and a name for herself in the world.

As a trained hip hop/rap DJ, DJ K Yung has opened her music catalog as the next open format DJ including Latin. Yep! She's bout that whole Life. K Yung was nominated for the Salute the DJs award in 2013 for The Hottest Female DJ, as well as Female DJ of the Year with the Fleet DJs and was DJ Clue’s – DJ of the Week in January of 2013. Talk about making waves, she did that!

In August of 2015 she became a member of the Violator All Star DJs and then in March of 2016 became a member of Da Union DJs. She signed a management deal with Executive A&R Dre’ The U.R.L. and the I Swim with Sharks management team in December of 2016. Currently, K Yung guest spots as an on-air mixer at various radio stations such as SiriusXM Shade 45 VIP Saturday’s, SiriusXM FLY, The Drive on Shade 45, and Dash Radio with Violator Radio UnKut.

Taking it beynd the turn table, K Yung is also the founder and CEO of Flood 93 Media Group which in October 2016, she opened and launched Flood 93 Radio with 4 of her business partners and later this year will be opening up Flood 93 Latino. If that wasn’t enough to round things out, in December of 2016 she was officially sponsored by Luc Belaire Champagne as an official Black Bottle Girl. She gained notoriety in film in 2016 and 2017 as part of the last Ringling Bro’s “Out of this World” as the pre-show host filming and recording voice overs of the production and recently finished a one month tour with Feld Entertainment in Australia this past October. She made her national TV debut with NBC Sports May 11th as the pit reporter for Monster Jam filling in for their reporter.
