Brief Bio:

English Name: Alex Chu (알렉스 추)
Korean Name: Chu Hun Goon (추헌곤)
Birthdate: September 2, 1979
Blood Type: A
Nationality: Korean-Canadian

Alex Chu better known as Alex is a Korean-Canadian singer/songwriter/actor/cook and all around the perfect guy. Having immigrated to Canada at a young age with his family, Alex rose to fame upon returning to South Korea as part of the group Clazziquai. The group's popularity skyrocketed after featuring on the soundtrack of hit drama series My Lovely Samsoon.

In 2008, the group announced a temporary hiatus, and its members debuted as solo artists, including Alex. In 2009, Clazziquai returned with the release of Mucho Punk.

Alex became part of MBC reality show We Got Married (우리 결혼했어요) and was matched with Korean trot singer Jang Yoon Jeong in the Lunar Special episode, and actress/model Shin Ae for the rest of the series. The show also stars Crown J, Andy of Shinhwa, Seo In Young of Jewelry, Solbi of Typhoon, Saori and Jung Hyung Don. Alex and Shin Ae left the show after Episode 8 for Alex to record his first solo album Vintage Romance. They were replaced by Kim Hyun Joong of SS501 and Hwangbo of Chakra. However, due to popular demand, the couple reunited in Episode 13. Alex and Shin Ae made their exit from the show on November 16, 2008.

Alex debuted in his first drama series "Pasta" as one of the main cast. The drama aired from January 4, 2010 to March 9, 2010 on MBC.






Group:

Clazziquai also known as Clazziquai Project, is a South Korean experimental band that combines several genres including electronic music, acid jazz and house. The group's first short unofficial albums were released online in 2001, spreading its music through words of "netizens," who positively received the group's music. They remained underground until the release of their first album Instant Pig in 2004, selling over 80,000 copies[citation needed]. Since then, their music has been used in various television commercials, shows, and films, and they have been given the chance to perform at various events.[1]









 

Why is he being featured?



Because he's Mr. Romantic, Mr. Perfect, and most importantly Mr. Voice. I don't think it takes much guess to know as to why he's being featured. I do have a not-so unknown deep eternal love for this man. However stanning aside, he's being featured because he do have many new projects that are coming up and his voice is something that all Omonians should become familiarized with. It's the perfect candy for the ear. Smooth and strong, his voice has the ability to make even the most hardcore person to melt like butter.   Alex is also a former cook who has demonstrated his cooking talents through the shows like WGM and his own cooking show. He has even published a book about his cooking and eating experience, titled Alex's Spoon
