SE7EN Career

This Korean singer has been making a name for himself in Korea and Japan, where he has just released his first Japanese album and held a concert. He started his training at the age of 15 at YG Entertainment agency and released his first album 4 years later. Since then, he has not stopped and has focused his career on the global market, just like the other artists in the company.

SE7EN has worked exclusively under the YG Entertainment label. Most of his career is made up of constant promotions of his songs through live performances on TV, radio shows and concerts. He also began studying Japanese in preparation for his promotional activities for his Japanese debut in 2005.

SE7EN has toured throughout Asia,particularly Japan,Taiwan,Thailand and China.It has also performed a few times in the United States,specifically in Los Angeles (Grand Olympic and Hollywood Bowl),New York City (Madison Square Garden) and Washington DC (DAR Constitution Hall).

Although he is a very young singer, he has already received several awards in his native country, such as the SBS Gayo Awards in 2003 and the MBC Awards in 2004, and has achieved worldwide fame, even performing in the U.S. One thing that characterizes SE7EN is that he has never performed playback during his concerts because he doesn’t like to do it.

SE7EN is also known to get along very well with other world-class artists, such as Shinhwa Jung Ji Hoon (Bi) or TVXQ (also with YG Family members) who came to his first concert in Japan to wish him luck. It is said that his stage name,SE7EN, comes from the fact that he is the seventh member of Shinhwa Group, as SE7EN likes the group very much, but these are just jokes they make with each other.
