Chang learnt Go as a preschooler in Shanghai. He studied the game in Japan from January 2019.

Fairbairn writes "He is from Malayasia, technically - he has a Malayasian father of Chinese heritage and a Chinese mother, plus he moved to China when he was 4. ... Chang's teacher is Hong Malk-eun Saem, who has already had tremendous success in getting his pupils into the pro ranks."
