Our featuted artiste this week is Alex. He debuted in 2004 as a member of fusion group Clazziquai and has proved to be a successful musician and singer with his charming voice. In addition, Alex also has his own radio show and recently, he’s been named the male MC of MNet’s M!Countdown show, proving that he is an all-around talent.
This year, Alex has emerged as Korea’s hottest romantic guy since he appeared on the popular entertainment program “We Got Married”. Women go wild as he flashes his charming smile and hunky physique, but he wants to be remembered as an accomplished musician. Although his musical talent has been overshadowed so far by the warm and romantic image projected on variety shows, Alex has laid any doubts about his commitment to music to rest with his latest digital single album “Alex’s We Got Married” and his first solo album “My Vintage Romance”, which produced the top-5 hit "If It Is You". When you listen to the songs included in these digital single albums, you will realize that Alex is first and foremost a musician.
