The name T-Max comes from the first letter of triple and trinity, the words that mean perfect balance and harmony, and “maximize”, which implies that they will maximize their talents and abilities. Their debut song was a J-pop style dance track about the moment that new love blooms.
Even before they debuted, they’d been known by netizens because they filmed a video of themselves dancing to Arashi’s Love So Sweet and gave it as a gift to their producer.
The trio is composed of Shin Min-cheol, noted for his exceptional songwriting talent; Kim Jun, who plays Song Woo-bin in the KBS drama “Boys Over Flower”; and Park Yun-hwa, a talented musician in his own right. Their latest album contains pieces that best represent the versatility of these three promising musicians, covering a wide range of genres from trendy pop to funky rock dance. Title song “I Love You” from their latest album will also be featured in the teaser video for the film “Pitiable City” due out in early 2009.
They also sang ‘Paradise’, which is the title song for KBS drama “Boys Over Flower”.
