KCM made his debut into the Korean pop music world by singing "I Know", a song that was used in the original soundtrack of a drama entitled "Hit It." The year after, KCM released his first offical album to great response from both online and offline music listeners. KCM was recognized as a vocalist who would lead the music industry after having three successful songs, all hitting the top of the moblie online charts. His biggest characteristic is his voice of great compass, as there are very few male vocalists who can sing within five octaves. After the release of his first official album, he returned to stage a year later, with his second album, which was also well-received. He pushed out his third album, Love Affair, in 2006.
In 2008, KCM has returned with his fourth album, Kingdom. This album was produced by Korea’s best composer, Jo Young Soo, and has a number of ballads and other captivating songs. The title song is called “Classic”, which is a great ballad that brings out a nice orchestra instrumental and KCM’s powerful vocal skills.
