Cho Joong-hoon (Korean; born January 27, 1976), better known by his stage name Cho PD, is a South Korean record producer, rapper, and the founder of record label Stardom Entertainment.[1] He debuted in 1998 and announced his retirement from music in 2010.[2] However, he resumed releasing music in 2011 with his two-part album, State of the Art and Art of Business.[3]

On November 23, 2018, Cho was found guilty of fraud by the Seoul Central District Court. The sentence concerned Cho withholding undisclosed assets worth ?270,000,000 (approx. $238,116 USD) in July 2015 when he signed a contract to transfer the assets of Stardom Entertainment to a new unnamed company. These undisclosed funds were derived from Topp Dogg's 2015 concert tour of Japan. Cho was given a two-year prison sentence, suspended for 3 years.[4]
