K.Will is a new Korean singer who made his professional debut in Japan in 2004. After having achieved success in Japan, sweeping the Oricon Charts, he has advanced into other parts of Asia, including his home country of South Korea.
K.Will’s title song from his first Korean album, “Left Heart”, was produced by the “dream team” of world-renowned Korean producer Park Jin-young (JYP) and Bang Shi-hyuk. The song had been written and Park was simply waiting for the right voice to sing it when he finally came across K.Will. Park was very impressed with the singer’s vocals and saw the pairing as destiny.
“Left Heart” and the other tracks on K.Will’s first Korean album are a collection of heart-felt ballads that gave the balladeer heart-throb status among his female fans.
In addition to his own music, K.Will is the song-writer behind hit songs “Hug” (sung by TVXQ) and “Pi/ Aversion” (sung by Fly To The Sky).
The singer recently collaborated with Epik High on “M.U.S.I.C”. and is featured on the OST of the hit drama “Money’s Warfare” (“쩐의 전쟁/Jjeon-ui Jeon-jaeng”).
In 2008, he released a new digital single ‘Love 119’ that featured MC Mong. He also had made numerous performances for this song.
