Born in Korea, Younha had always wanted to become a J-pop singer. Her big chance came when a drama producer listened to one of her demo tapes. She went on to sing the song Yubikiri for the Fuji TV drama Tokyo Wankei -Destiny of Love in autumn 2004. 2005 saw another highlight for Younha when her single Hoki Boshi (“Comet”), featured as end title song of the anime Bleach, managed to secure the No. 15 spot on the Oricon charts. Younha has since solidified her status as J-pop star, sending her debut album Go! Younha all the way to the No. 12 position. Younha’s captivating smile, her crystal clear voice, and her talent as a songwriter and pianist have turned her into an exemplary figure on the J-pop scene. Now 19-year-old Younha launches her official debut album in Korea.
The album sees her collaborating with high-quality musicians from the K-pop scene. Besides Wheesung who lent her his song writing skills, Younha also teamed up with Hareem and Hwang Chan Hee, and got involved in composing work too. The principal song on Younha’s debut Korean album, titled “Secret Code 486″ (Track 3), was penned by Wheesung and presents a touching ballad. Also performing “Immature Greed” (Track 10) with Wheesung as well as the titular The perfect day to say I love you (Track 4), Younha is ready for her debut in the Korean music scene.
