Since the age of four Dima so much desired to become a doctor that he graduated from the medical class of the Minsk High School in the course of time, and he was not a second-rate student at all as he managed to graduate with a silver medal.

In 2002 Koldun entered the faculty of chemistry of the Belarusian State University. Dima refused to become a doctor and prepared to become a professional chemist. And being the bearer of the “magic” surname (Koldun means “magician”) “conjured” such unreal substances that he himself was astonished.

In 2006, Koldun became the winner of the “Star Factory,” where he perfomed “Still loving you” with the legendary group 'Scorpions'.
