There is “nothing better” than listening to Korea’s R&B and soul legend, Jung Yup, during the fall season.
Jung Yup debuted with a four-member band, Brown Eyed Soul, in 2003 and the group has been going strong with their songs, which mainly fall under R&B, soul and ballad. That exact year they debuted, their song, ‘Did We Truly Fall in Love’ hit the charts and was deemed one of the most popular songs of the year. In 2007, they made their statement as a band with one of Korea’s best R&B and soul albums; The Wind, The Sea, The Rain has 20 tracks that showed the listeners their capability.
Jung Yup has not only proven his importance in the band but also made himself known as a vocalist through his numerous solo songs.
