Artist of the week – Son Ho Young
Our featured artist this week is G.O.D. member Son Ho Young. In the past few weeks, he and Kim Tae Woo (another G.O.D. member) both have their own songs in our top 20. But Son Ho Young is the first G.O.D. member to release a solo album. Son Ho Young is often considered the most popular member in G.O.D., especially by female fans. His first solo album "Yes" has already produced 3 hits: "운다" (Crying), "사랑은 이별을 데리고 오다" (Love Brings Separation), and also the album title song "Yes". His songs are similar to G.O.D.’s signature ballads. That may be the reason that Son Ho Young’s album sales are also very good.
