As an undergraduate student at the Department of Humanities of Korea University , he participated in a cyber song festival and won the grand prize. The winners of the song festival released a compilation album, from which Sung Si Kyung's “The Road that Leads to Me” became a major hit. Thanks to popularity of the song the compilation album sold nearly 100,000 copies, even though it was a promotional album. This really launched Sung Si Kyung to the top of stardom.
Officially though, Sung Si Kyung’s debut was in 2001 when he released his first album,Like the First Time. Mainly consisting of ballads, his debut album recorded three hits and made him the best rookie singer of the year. Participating as a guest singer on Yoo Hee Yeol of Toy’s album also contributed to his rising popularity. His second album released in 2002 was also a success, selling more than 650 thousand copies. He continued to release album after album, averaging about one a year.
He has also appeared in television dramas and sitcoms gaining a favorable response from the public. He joined in the Hallyu wave by participating in various performances and appearances in other countries. He even had his own radio show for about two years called “A Blue Night and Sung Si Kyung”.
Sung was drafted into mandatory military service in 2008 and released in 2010. One common thing that was mentioned over and over again was that he seemed different. They say that the military changes a man, but it was more than that. He expressed that he had missed performing, music, and his fans so much that he re-entered the industry with even more pleasure than before. He even held his first comeback concert in October 2010, attracting about 6,000 people.
He made his comeback to music industry with this seventh album last month in September. The album's title song "The First Time" is a sweet and delicate ballad that was also released earlier this year as a digital single. He has decided to produce and release a regular album and not a mini or a single album for the fans that have waited for him for a long time.
The album consists of 12 songs composed by singer-songwriters Yoon Sang, Kim Hyun Chul and Kang Seung Won. He also featured duet with Lena Park and IU. Also included is theSecret Garden OSTsong "You're My Spring".
Sung Si Kyung became a singer through an internet audition. His first hit single was "내게 오는 길 (The Road to me)" in November 2000, followed by his debut album, "처음처럼 (Like the Beginning)" in April 2001.
Sung currently has seven full albums - five are traditional ballad/pop albums, a "remake" album and a "special" album calledTry to Remember. He also released a "best of" album in Japan which includes his first Japanese title. His sixth and final pre-army was released in 2008.
Sung Si Kyung is under Jellyfish Entertainment, and was educated at Sehwa High School and Korea University (sociology major). He also attended the Graduate School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Korea University .
Between October 2005 and May 2008, Sung hosted a nightly radio program on MBC FM4U called "푸른밤, 그리고 성시경입니다 (Blue Night with Sung Si Kyung)".
