Super Junior Member Profile and Facts: Yesung

Kim Jong-hoon (born on August 24, 1984), better known by his stage name Yesung, is a South Korean singer and actor. He is a member of the South Korean boy band Super Junior and its sub-units Super Junior-K.R.Y., Super Junior-H and S.M. The Ballad. His stage name Yesung is derived from the Korean phrase “예술가의 성대” (lit. meaning: vocal cords of an artist) and can be translated as an “art-like voice”.

Image result for yesung 2016

Early Life:

Yesung was born in Seoul and later moved to Cheonan, South Chungcheong when he was 10 years old. He has a younger brother, whose name is Kim Jong-jin. From a young age, Yesung expressed an interest in singing. In 1999, he joined a broadcast singing competition and won the first place at the ‘Cheonan Singing Competition‘. In 2001, Yesung’s mother, Im Bo-kyung, signed him up to audition for SM Entertainment’s ‘Starlight Casting System‘, in which he impressed the judges with his “artistic voice”, and became a trainee under SM Entertainment the same year.

Career:

1. 2005 – 2007 = Debut with Super Junior:

Yesung officially debuted as part of the 12-member project group ‘Super Junior 05′ on 6 November 2005 on SBS’s music program ‘Popular Songs’, performing their first single, ‘Twins (Knock Out)’. Their debut album ‘SuperJunior05 (Twins)‘ was released a month later on 5 December 2005 and debuted at no.3 on the monthly MIAK K-pop album charts.

In March 2006, SM Entertainment began to recruit new members for the next Super Junior generation. However, plans changed and the company declared a halt in forming future Super Junior generations. Following the addition of thirteenth member Kyuhyun, the group dropped the suffix ‘05‘ and became officially credited as ‘Super Junior‘.The re-polished group’s first CD single ‘U‘ was released on 7 June 2006, which was their most successful single until the release of ‘Sorry, Sorry‘ in March 2009. In the fall of 2007, the group released their second official album, ‘Don’t Don’, which became Super Junior’s best-selling album and Korea’s second best-selling album of the year.

From September 2006 to September 2007, Yesung was host for radio program, ‘M.I.R.A.C.L.E for You’, where members of Super Junior often appeared as guests. However, before the radio show’s first anniversary, Yesung left in order to concentrate on Super Junior’s second album, ‘Don’t Don’. The last air date for the radio show was 8 September 2007. In November 2006, Yesung, along with Super Junior members Ryeowook and Kyuhyun, formed a sub-unit, ‘Super Junior-K.R.Y.‘, a group specializing in R&B ballads. The trio debuted on November 5, 2006 on KBS’s ‘Music Bank’.
