 Andy Lee (Korean singer)'s Biography

Pre-debut[edit]

Lee went to John F. Kennedy High School , La Palma, Orange County before transferring to and graduating from Korea Kent Foreign School . Lee was the second member to join Shinhwa. He originally planned to be a member of H.O.T. (another Korean boy band) with his friend Tony An . However, his parents pulled their support for him joining H.O.T. because they thought he was too young. Nevertheless, he continued to stay with the management of H.O.T. and was even featured as a rapper on female group S.E.S. 's singleI'm Your Girlalong with Eric Mun (Mun would later join Lee in Shinhwa as lead rapper).

When Andy was older, his parents let him join Shinhwa. He would continue with Shinhwa until the group's fourth album when he took some time out to study in the U.S. (he later confessed that it actually was due to his care for seriously sick mother). For the group's fifth albumPerfect Manhe returned and has been with the group ever since. His real English name was actually Jason, but SM Entertainment persuaded him to change it before his debut.[citation needed]

2003: Solo artist[edit]

In 2003, when the members of Shinhwa began doing solo activities, Lee surprised everyone by being an actor on various dramas, most notably the dramaLovers In Prague. Although he had a very minor role in the drama, it gained many viewers because of his role as a completely different, serious person. He began appearing in many banjun drama as well alongside former Fin.K.L member Lee Jin . The two acted together in numerous other banjun dramas as well as a couple for 6 months, longer than any other couple or actors/actresses did on the show segment for which they gained a lot of popularity due to their perfect match and chemistry. Lee was also an MC on SBS Inkigayo and MBC Goldfish, though in January 2007, he step down from being MC on both SBS Inkigayo and MBC Goldfish in a period of 3 days (SBS Inkigayo on January 28 & MBC Goldfish on January 31).

In 2007, Lee left his group's management to set up his own company, ND (New Dream) Entertainment, concentrating on his solo career. As Shinhwa was on hiatus, Lee return to acting in September 2007 to act as the lead role in a musical "Music In My Heart (Season 3)", a type of project that none of the Shinhwa members have tried to pursue yet. After finishing performances for the musical, Lee released his very first digital single, titled "Irrelevant [or Extraordinary] Imagination" on November 30, 2007, a cover from the group Rollercoaster's song. Due to the help of Park Jin Young (also known as JYP; CEO of JYP Entertainment ) and Yubin of Wonder Girls , Lee was able to have a successful single. Yubin rapped while JYP wrote the lyrics for the rap part in the song. With the help, Lee was able to attract a lot of attention for the single. By releasing the digital single as well, Lee became the 5th member in Shinhwa to go solo behind Lee Min-woo , Shin Hye-sung , Jun Jin , and Kim Dong-wan , leaving Eric Mun as the only member to have not yet pursue a solo singing career.

In March 2008, Andy joined MBC 's reality showWe Got Marriedwhere he was a couple with singer Solbi to act out the lives of newlyweds . Solbi and Andy made their official exit fromWe Got Marriedon October 5, 2008. He has taken an active career in stage such as playing as playing a 19-year-old in the musicalPolaroidin August 2008, as well as live concerts throughout September and October. He has also produced a two-member boy band called Jumper under his company ND Entertainment. They have released two singles titledYES!featuring Eric and눈이부셔 (Sparkling Eyes)featuring Kang Jiyoung of Kara .
