Yoo Yeon Seok Reveals That Son Ho Joon Used to Be the Leader of an Idol Group


Actor Son Ho Joon was once a member of idol group Tachyon.

Cable network tvN’s variety talk show “Taxi” continued their “Reply 1994” special, airing Part 3 of the series on January 18, which featured actor Yoo Yeon Seok, who played baseball player Chil Bong in the drama.

He discussed a wide range of topics on the show, talking about receiving hate for his role in “Introduction to Architecture,” and revealed details about his family.

Towards the end of the show, Kim Gura, one of the show’s MCs, commented that he’d heard Yoo Yeon Seok could sing well. Yoo Yeon Seok played it down, saying that he’d just sung on the OST together with Jung Woo and Son Ho Joon.

He was asked to comment on the singing abilities of the others. “Son Ho Joon was formerly a singer. He was a member of Tachyon.” While Yoo Yeon Seok modestly rated Son Ho Joon as the best singer, he did not reply when asked if he was better at singing than Jung Woo, but didn’t deny it either, smiling instead. He mentioned that he would like to try a musical, if given the chance.

Son Ho Joon debuted with idol group Tachyon in 2007. The 3-member group was revealed in a clip on “Taxi,” showing Son Ho Joon with an idol hairstyle and looking much younger.

Tachyon debuted with “Feel Your Breeze” but did not manage to attain much popularity. Later, leader Son Ho Joon and another member Jeong Jung Gyun dropped out of the group.

The recently concluded “Reply 1994” starred actors Jung Woo, Go Ara, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Sung Kyun, Son Ho Joon, Baro and Do Hee, and received rave reviews for great acting and exciting plot. The drama has received more love and support than its predecessor “Reply 1997” did.

“Reply 1994” broke the 10% ratings barrier for cable dramas, and its finale attracted a record 11.9% viewership rating, marking a successful conclusion to the drama.
