Jaeuck will also talk to and play games with them. Some exclusive and private videos will be unveiled for the first time during the gathering. Jaeuck’s fans and “Rock’n Roll” lovers, don’t miss this valuable chance!
With the band name originating from “I am the walrus”, one of pop “Rock’n Roll” songs composed by Beatles, walrus has always been staying focused on “Rock’n Roll” music. As early as a decade ago when they met each other in the Applied Music Department of Seoul Institute of the Arts, they came up with an idea to form a rock band. Despite busy schedule as a model and actor, Jaeuck never gives up his music dreams, keeps on composing songs and lyrics writing, while other three members have been professional musicians. In 2008, walrus formally started music production. Making its debut at Grant Mint Festival in 2009, the band has embarked on a number of music events and performance.
Tracks on the first mini album, which was recently released by walrus, include “To Be”, “MOZAIC” and “Seoul Witch”. “To Be” represents walrus’ starting point and aspiration, implying the “music halo” of the band. “MOZAIC” is an exciting, fast-paced music with brisk rhythm and strong beats of guitar accompaniment. Marked by lively rhythm and pleasant melody, the featured song, “Seoul Witch”, depicts the story of a lonely witch who is living in an indifferent city. It is notable that the English lyrics of “To Be” were written by Jaeuck. Jaeuck is proficient in Korean and Japanese, and can speak good English, because his father, who was stationed in Japan as a news correspondent, brought Jaeuck to the country when he was born, and Jaeuck returned to Korea when he was eight.
Immediately after the completion of “Mary Stayed Out All Night” in late December 2010, Jaeuck embarked on the production of his album. Every walrus member is fully committed to the production of their first album, and is heavily involved from cover design, song composition, lyric writing, sound recording, production, supervision to MV production. It is truly an outcome of heart and love. As a model and actor, Jaeuck, who has diversified himself in different fields, serves as the icon of the band and lyrics writer. His fresh and unique voice, as well as talent for lyrics writing are fully displayed in this album. He intends to exert more focus on music this year, and will embark on more activities and go beyond Korea to the whole of Asia.
With his noble and dignified appearance, as well as outstanding acting skills, he has won much applause and numerous awards including “MBC Drama Award” and “Most Favorite TV Artist of Korea” in 2007, “Best New Actor Award” at 16th “Korean Entertainment Awards” in 2008 and “Special Model Award” at “Asia Model Festival Awards” in 2009.
Jaeuck is well versed in playing musical instruments such as guitar and piano. As a music enthusiast, he has been vocalist, guitarist, lyrics writer and song composer of walrus since Year One in the university, and has composed a number of songs. Although he is doing tremendously well in his model and actor jobs, music is always his favorite and dream. His enthusiasm and aspiration about music never change throughout the years. He strongly feels that music can enable him to express his ideas, convey his words and share feelings with others.
