Lee Ki-chan made his debut as a singer when he was still a high school student. In 1996, Lee took part in a talent contest held during a radio show and won the grand prize. Since then, Lee has developed his career as a professional singer. Along with Lee Ji-hoon and Kim Soo-keun, Lee was among the most promising high-teen singers. At the time of Lee’s debut, the Korean pop music world was dominated by dance music, but Lee Ki-chan received spotlight with his soft ballads.
Having undergone musical training by Han Yong-jin a renowned re-mix DJ, Lee Ki-chan released his first album entitled “Na Na Na Na Nineteen.” In only 3 months since the release of the album, 220 thousand copies were sold. The song “Please” was the most popular among the tracks. In November of the same year, Lee released his second album entitled “Indelible Impression.” In the song “Glass,” Lee Ki-chan showed off his singing talent that sounded much more mature considering his age of only 19. For his 3rd album, Lee Ki-chan challenged producing his own songs. As a result, the album reflected Lee’s own personality and characteristics. One of Lee’s greatest hit songs came later in his 5th album released in 2001. The song “Another Love Goes Away” was written by Park Jin-young.
The appealing singing method of Lee that harmonized perfectly to the words and melody of the song touched the hearts of many listeners. Lee Ki-chan is a musician with a flexible mind and attitude who tries constantly to figure out what the listeners want in his music. Challenging various musical genres such as Latin, rap and reggae, Lee Ki-chan was quite successful in coming closer to the listeners through his music. Lee’s hope is to become a person who makes and sings songs forever.
