Lee Jung Hyun debuted at the tender age of 16 in Jang Sun Woo’s 1996 masterpiece A Petal, and her energy exploded on the stage soon after. She is one of the few Korean artistes firmly established in the dance music genre. From her explosive debut album and wild music videos to her catchy tunes and excellent production, Lee has improved steadily with every album, which is all the more remarkable considering her young age. After two years of running from Japanese dramas (Rondo, as Choi Ji Woo’s sister) to Chinese concerts, Lee is finally back in Korea with her sixth album, Fantastic Girl.

Mixing the talent of producers Yoon Il Sang and Choi Joon Young with Lee’s incredible energy, this new album moves away from the Latin vibes of her fifth album, Passion, and offers an eclectic mix of musical styles. The principle track I Love You Cheol Soo is filled with analogue funky sounds like Half from her third album. The rest of Fantastic Girl is a blend of different genres and influences, from traditional Korean instruments like the gayageum (zither) to indo-pop and techno. As always, Lee paid special attention to the music video for I Love You Cheol Soo, which was directed by Lee Do Young. – credits to YesAsia

The big ten. On Oct 10 (10/10), Shin Seung Hun releases his tenth album, a testimony to his talent and long-standing popularity. When Shin Seung Hun started his journey in the business, there was no Korean Wave, the Internet was an affair for a selected few, and music videos were an MTV novelty. But through hard work, dedication, and talent, he eventually made it. His fanbase kept growing, recently expanding outside Korean borders to Japanese, Chinese, and even American shores. To celebrate 16 years of success, Shin Seung Hun returns after a two-year absence with The Romanticist.

Starting with the main track Lady (Track 3), Shin moves swiftly from ballads and bossa nova to tango, swing, gospel and much more. In addition, Shin is preparing a $9 million world tour which will bring him all over Korea, Japan, China, the US, and Southeast Asia. With a staff of over 250 people, Shin will try for the first time a "1 Scene 1 View" format (different set and production for every song) for his concerts, sure to be the icing on the cake of a wonderful career. – credits to YesAsia

Autumn is the time for ballads and the season opens promisingly with the long-awaited return of Ballad King Sung Si Kyung. After adding acting and DJing to his resume, Sung finally got to work on his fifth album, The Ballads. This time he personally produced the entire album, supervising not only the composition process, but also the production of main track On The Street’s music video, which was shot in Shibuya, Tokyo with Japanese actress Okura Erika. The music video was directed by Lee Joon Hyung, who previously worked with Brown Eyed Soul and Lee Soo Young.

The key as always is Sung’s unmistakable style, mixing ballads with jazz bossa, pop and even dance. Joining him for this fifth album are old friends Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Hyung Seok and Hareem along with Lee Seung Hwan of The Story, Lee Hyun Seung, and more. R&B diva Ann also makes an appearance, and comedian Jung Sun Hee joins in with a narration. – credits to YesAsia

Beyond the interesting characters and compelling storyline, it’s hard not to remember the wonderful music when you think of Alone in Love. One of the most refreshing dramas of 2006, this SBS romance drama starring Son Ye Jin and Gam Woo Sung transcended its genre with wonderful acting, a mature screenplay, and a relaxed, film-like atmosphere.

Relive the magic of Alone in Love with this special collector’s OST and Song Book set. The original soundtrack CD features veteran artists like Lee Moon Se and Cho Won Sun (the lead singer of acid pop band Rollercoaster), Noh Young Shim’s beautiful melodies, the singing debuts of actresses Son Ye Jin and Lee Ha Na, and narrations from the drama. Along with the OST, the set also comes with with a special book with drama stills and thoughts from the cast and crew along and an extra CD of love songs by the artists who took part in the OST. – credits to YesAsia
