Being one of the representative R&B singers in Korea, Wheesung is not only a singer, but also a songwriter, a producer and a musical actor. Differentiated from K-Pop idol groups, his talent gathered a wide range of fandom giving him a nickname ‘R&B prince’. He is considered to be a singer who could gain sympathy from people through his unique musical characteristics with smooth melodies and rhythms.
His debut album in 2002 sold more than 600,000 copies, and in the same year, he had won several different ‘Best New Artist’ in Korea. Since then, he has continuously released many hit songs. ‘Insomnia’, released in 2009, especially had a great attention as Craig David, the world-famous English R&B singer-songwriter, specifically asked Wheesung to remake and sing the Asian version of his great hit song ‘Insomnia’ after listening to Wheesung’s voice.
Currently, Wheesung is very active on K-Pop programs on Korean televisions including ‘Immortal Songs’ and ‘Hidden Singer’, and his passion and talent still fascinate people.
