After graduating high school, Min Chung majored in German literature and violin at Seoul National University in Korea. He made his conducting debut in 2007 with Aloysius Symphony Orchestra. 

In 2020, Chung was appointed Principal Guest Conductor of Italy’s Orchestra Haydn di Trento e Bolzano, and since 2015, holds the role of Associate Conductor of Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.
