Woosung is a Korean-American musician, singer, songwriter, and composer, best known
for being the vocalist and electric guitarist of South Korean band The Rose. Debuting in
2017 with soft-rock hit “Sorry,” The Rose was named one of the “New K-Pop Artists to Watch”
by Billboard. They subsequently broke into the top 10 of Billboard’s “Next Big Sound,” “World
Digital Song Sales” and “World Albums” charts with extended plays Dawn and Void, the
latter of which also hit #1 on the U.S. iTunes’ K-Pop Albums chart, solidifying the band’s
dominance in being one of the fastest accelerating artists across the internet.
As the frontman of The Rose, Woosung made his solo debut in 2019 with EP Wolf, and its
title single, “Face,” quickly racked up nearly 20 million views on YouTube. In 2020, Woosung
lent his vocals to the original soundtrack of award-winning K-drama series Itaewon Class.
A multifaceted performer, Woosung has since established his own independent label, and
his latest solo effort, “Lazy,” will be released on June 24, 2021.
