Cheeze arirang I’m Live, perform ‘Mood Indigo’

After Dalchong had performed Mood Indigo, she interacted with her audience. When being asked about the story behind her band name CHEEZE, she explained that it was actually a study group before it came as a band, she further said, “Honestly speaking, we named it quite carelessly.

Dalchong further said that, “none of us were good at English. We thought it was “cheese”. We were ignorant and then we later realized that it was actually “cheese”. She also asked about her favorite cheese by the same audience. “My favorite cheese is cheddar.”



Why She use the stage name Dalchong

Cheeze Arirang

An audience thought her stage name was Dalpaengi which means snail, so she questioned about the reason she came up with her stage name. “I created my stage name when I was part of this study group I have just mentioned and each member had to come up with a stage name. I wanted to have an androgynous name and the words “dal” (moon) and “chong” (gun) came to my mind.

Then I asked my friends what they think about it, and they liked that name, too, so I ended up using that name until today. I sometimes wish I came up with a more genuine name because the current one sounds a bit too cute. Nonetheless, I still like my stage name.”
