Crush is undoubtedly one of the most well-known R&B singers in the Korean music scene. He did the main soundtrack for 2016 hit TV series “The Guardian.” He collaborated with some of the country’s top artists such as IU, Zico and former 2PM star Jay Park.

His new single “none” released on Oct. 17 created much buzz around town, topping four local music charts?Bugs, Genie, Mnet and Olleh.

“I was having a rough year last year, and I wanted to put out music that I was satisfied with as artist, without regard for its performance on music charts,” Crush said of his recent work. “This album is about the real me. I hope it gets through (to the listeners).”

The prolific 26-year-old has released six projects this year.

Music videos to three of this year’s works have been released on Naver’s V Live Thursday afternoon.
