Younha has already been in the music industry for a long time as she started her career at 16 years old. Her first release was in 2005 in Japan. Since a very young age she was surrounded by music and she quickly developed the dream to become singer. Unfortunately, she has been refused by many Korean Entertainments stating that she was not pretty enough even though she has a great voice. She finally succeeded to become a singer, but in Japan first. A producer discovered her and took one of her song for an anime OST. This is how she started to be known in Japan and later in Korea. Showing that you don’t need to be pretty to be a good singer. Even though she had a difficult time in Japan after the success of her first album. That’s when she came back to Korea and started her career there. After many years of determination and fighting, she is now one brilliant singer and Korea can be proud to have such a good artist. She has a wonderful voice and a lot of charisma. And on the contrary to what was said by the entertainments, she is very charming and pretty. But after all, it doesn’t matter because the most important is to have talent and she has plenty. She is now composing some of her songs, showing more and more talent in every release. She makes us think of Adèle somehow, she is like the Korean Adèle. That’s why, even though, Younha is already an artist, Japako Music decided to make a presentation of her. She is the kind of artist we like, full of talent and charisma. Anyway, she doesn’t seem to be that known in Europe, which is sad because she deserves more attention from the rest of the world as well.
She made a lot of releases in Japan and in Korea. But we will only talk about her Korean discography. Her first Korean release was in 2007 with the full length album „The perfect day to say I love you“. We can say that at least, her first release in Korea reached great success which allowed her to continue and entertain us with her wonderful voice. The same year she released a remix of her first Japanese album in Korea called „Comet“. Then, she released another full length album in August 2008 called „Someday“, this album includes a song entirely in English. In 2009, she released an album again but in two parts, part 1 was „Peace love & Ice cream“ in April and part 2 was „Growing season“ in December. We can say that she is really working hard to become a recognized singer and just for that, we should definitely give her a lot of respect. She made her come back in Korea again in December 2010 with a mini album this time, „Lost in love“. In July 2012, she released again a full length album „Supersonic“, where you can even find a featuring with Jay Park. She recently made her come back with a mini album „Just listen“ which is absolutely wonderful to listen to. Don’t hesitate to check the review we made about it.
Younha has clearly a huge career and a lot of experience in the music industry, bad or good. For us, she definitely is an artist. She is amazing and deserves the best. We hope you will think like us and you will go check the music videos we reviewed. Give it a try, you cannot be disappointed! Anyway, we really wish the best to Younha.
