 Dean (South Korean singer)'s Life and career

Early life and career[edit]

rather than an occupation.He initially wrote songs in his room, which he kept secret from his parents at first.Although he was the first musician in his family, his parents enjoyed music and supported his decision to become an artist.

The name originated from actor James Dean , whose rebellious image appealed to him, and the word 'influenza', signifying his desire to make a "viral" impact on the music industry.

He was credited on tracks including Exo's "Black Pearl" and VIXX 's " Voodoo Doll ".

2015: U.S. and South Korean debut[edit]

and Dynamic Duo on "How You Doin'?".

2016: SXSW and first EP130 Mood : TRBL[edit]

as a producer, arranging a well-received version of the Mose song, "It's Love" for a performance by iKON members.

He additionally performed at the Hypetrak Stageand at SXSW's K-Pop Night Out .

Billboard K-Towncolumnist Jeff Benjamin described the chart position on the Heatseekers Albums chart uncommon for a K-pop act, and especially for a debut release.He said that the album was an "impressive debut creatively that pushes R&B ahead into the future with its compositions and collaborations -- notably the woozy "Pour Up" featuring Zico of Block B, the Weeknd -recalling "21" and "What 2 Do" with Korean R&B star Crush and L.A. singer Jeff Bernat."Horizon Asia magazine labeled the EP as a pioneering album, introducing a new music genre to the mainstream K-pop world.The review described "D (Half Moon)" "the most romantic yet saddest song in the album" with "Dean's unique sonorous vocals" in a song "laden with vocal harmony and echoes which highlight a sense of hollowness."

Also in April, he was added to the KCON Los Angeles 2016 lineup, scheduled for July 29-31.
