Korean singer Lee An is based in Singapore

Did you know that?

friends, you probably don’t need to travel to the land of the Hallyu for your Kpop fix anymore because the Hallyu is coming to you.

The Hallyu comes to SE Asia?: Lee An is based
in Singapore

Lee An, a Korean singer who is based in Singapore, has been actively promoting his music in the Lion City since 2007. The 29-year-old has already released two albums – The Birth (2007) and Us (2008).

Originally a music producer in South Korea, Lee An chose Singapore as his base to launch his showbiz career after a chance visit to the bustling city-state.

The singer, who is no stranger to kerepek ubi kayu (tapioca chips), beh teh soh (pastry cookies filled with molasses), and durian puffs, will be releasing his third album sometime this year. He has plans to promote his music in Singapore (of course) and other neighbouring countries such as Indonesia…and Malaysia (we hope).

In January 2009, Lee An flew to Indonesia for a showcase as well as to appear on the local TV and radio stations.

Ni hao ma?: Lee An learns Mandarin to woo the Chinese-speaking fans
(don't forget about "bananas" like me, Lee An)

Lee An’s debut album contained 9 Korean tracks, which included ballads and upbeat Latin-inspired songs. The talent, who likes scuba diving, golfing and racing cars, also learned Mandarin and had included three Korean-Mandarin tracks in his sophomore album.

Want to listen to some Lee An music? Watch the MV for Us (2nd album) below!

And if you like him that much and need to keep up with his activities, surf on over to his blog at:

Great article, showing well-done research . Nice touch there, adding the kerepek ubi kayu and durian puffs. Those are pretty current updates!

It isn't always easy to uproot oneself to start in a foreign land. So, Lee An has conquered all odds to be based in small and sunny Singapore. Think about it, this is a country which exports its own singers to make a name for themselves. Instead, we have Lee An who comes all the way from South Korea to take a chance on Singapore. He has even adopted Singapore as a second home, like a hoem away from home.

Listen to his songs before you make a judgment. Better yet, attend one of his events and feel his presence and personality for yourself. While korean singers have been known to be snooty and aloof (sometimes thanks to their management companies), Lee An has shown that he has no superstar airs at all.

Don't take my word for it. Read all the news reports. Every reporter walks away being pleased with his warmth and friendliness.

Take a chance on him. Attend one of his performances. See, experience for yourself... it isn't IMpossible. Lee An will be making the rounds in Malaysia and Indonesia soon... Lee An, always the
friendly chap he is, treats his fans like family. :)

Kimchi Kiss, Lee-an..

Hi my name is Risda from Indonesia.
And today is his 2nd trip to Jakarta. I met him and saw him singing live during the KTO Roadshow event here, and took some photos with him. Obviously, he's got the talent to be a good singer. Cool voice. Hope he'll be more success and be known all over Asia. Fighting, Lee-an!!!
