 Lee Min Woo's Career

Debut with Shinhwaedit

While dancing for his group, Dicky Ducky, as a student at Jeonju Fine Arts School for the Everland dancing competition, Lee was scouted and was the fourth member to join the boy band Shinhwa. Although he started out as a rapper and a singer, he stopped rapping as Shinhwa continued to release albums. As a skilled dancer, he has choreographed some of Shinhwa's dances.[citation needed]

Solo debut in 2003edit

, according to the January 2004 chart sold in excess of 100,000 copies,Two lead tracks were released for promotion: "Just One Night", the lead track from the album is a jazzy slow groove song and "Oh Rain". Then in 2004, Lee reunited with Shinhwa to work on their first album with Good Entertainment,Brand New, released in August 2004.

During this time, Lee recorded and released a single, "If You...", in March 2005. Sales did not reach album levels, but the single managed to sell over 30,000 copies. Again, Lee heavily promoted the single, with many performances of the song "If You...", complete with special dance intros performances of other songs. As opposed to the sophisticated image from his first album, Lee promoted this single with a "handsome" image, as the song was a light pop song. However, when fellow Shinhwa member Shin Hye-sung released his solo debut, Lee stopped performing in order to avoid competing with him.

.Initially released in two versions (including a limited "Lineage II" edition), the album's liner notes showed off a sexier Lee Min-woo, as his new muscular body was clearly displayed; there were many pictures of him in partial attire. Lee used the sexier image for his lead single "Bump!!!", which was a club-oriented dance hit. Complete with an intense video and heavily choreographed performances, the song pushed Lee to the top of the various network charts, and his album sold 80 000 copies in the month of September. To capitalize on this success, Good Entertainment (via EMI Korea, their distributor) released yet another version of the album. However, this one had a completely new cover and special bonus tracks; in addition, there was a bonus VCD. This "Girl Friend edition" was released as Lee moved onto his second single, "Girl Friend", a ballad about a lost love. Lee changed his image once again, displaying a rougher, yet sensitive, image. "Girl Friend" was fairly successful as well, allowing Lee to promote his album for over four months, a rarity in Korea's music industry. The album was ultimately a strong seller, placing 12th in MIAK's year-end charts with over 120,000 copies sold.

2006–2007: M Rising Entertainment and actingedit

The concert was released on DVD in the summer. Lee debut as an actor inWontak's Angel, released in summer of 2006. For the remainder of the year, he rejoined Shinhwa for the released of their 8th albumState of the Art, and the associated promotion along withShinhwa 2006 Asia Tour: State of the Artconcerts. He resumed his solo career at the end of 2006, with a promotional concert at Seoul Melon AX on December 2,followed by another concert in Shanghai on December 4. His end of year activity was participation in new singer Sat's first single, released on December 12.

which also featured bandmate Jun Jin , Kangta of H.O.T , SG Wannabe and actor Song Seung-heon at the Osaka Dome .

, which was in the R&B/dance style of his previous albums. He had composeed nine songs and the album debuted at number three on the chart. Although he intended to release it in the U.S., via CJ Music and CJ Entertainment's global network,it was released in Korea instead.

2008–2011: Mini album and military serviceedit

Lee's third albumM Rizing, sold over 30,000 copies in 2008.[citation needed]Lee's first single from the album was callStomp, where it was number onefor two consecutive days on an online chart.[citation needed]His second single, “The M Style” was also quite popular as well, climbing up the charts just as quickly.[citation needed]Though his songs managed to chart well, the album sales were not as strong as its two predecessors, with the album dropping off the Korean Monthly Chart rather quickly. Lee released his first mini-album,The Sentimental Reasonin February 2008 to coincide with Valentine's Day and White Day . Giving only a limited 13,000 copies, it sold out in less than a month. The mini-album was successful enough for Lee to promote it with two singles, "Just One More Night" and "Believe In Love".

In June 2009, Lee made a comeback with mini album,Minnovation. He collaborated with American producer Outsidaz on title track, "Minnovation", which is infused with electronica and hip hop beats. In January 2010, it was reported that Lee was in a serious car accident on Christmas Eve, in which he sustained some serious injuries.[citation needed]He then heldM′s Suite Roomconcert in February.
