Hello7.com – Official website (Korean) Se7en Official YouTube Channel Choi Dong-wook (Korean: 최동욱, 崔東昱; born November 9, 1984), better known by his stage name Se7en, is a South Korean singer from YG Entertainment. He has also advanced into Japan, China and the United States. Se7en and YG Family (including Big Bang, 2NE1, Jinusean and Gummy)made an appearance on, the now defunct, MTV K, followed by 3 concerts in Washington DC, New York City, and Los Angeles, to celebrate YG Family’s 10th Anniversary and to help promote Se7en before his American debut. The MTV K documentary aired on December 11, 2006. Se7en is a featured guest on Amerie’s Take Control on her album, Because I Love It, which was released in May 2007. This remix is available on Asian versions of the album. Yang Hyun Suk, (CEO of YG Entertainment) had announced that Fabolous would be featured in Se7en ‘s first U.S. single. However, due to a leak in March 2007 of his US debut song, “This is My Year” featuring Fabolous, which was produced by Rich Harrison and Lionell Davis, on Myspace and YouTube, this caused some changes in Se7en’s U.S. debut. Se7en worked with former CEO of LaFace Records, Mark Shimmel and Grammy-winner Rich Harrison and Richcraft producer Lionell Davis on his first American album. A new production team called Noize Trip, who produced The Black Eyed Peas’ Disco Club lso contributed some work. YG Entertainment and Se7en also took necessary steps to ensure his debut such as trademarking his name in America. Se7en began promoting his English songs through a U.S. album preview party tour with his first stop at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City on March 14, 2008 (produced by Swerve Media and Base NYC). Three of his U.S. album tracks were played at this preview party. Verizon Wireless sponsored his preview parties and autograph signings for a charitable cause. On March 10, Se7en ‘s first single “Girls” featuring Lil’ Kim was released through digital stores such as iTunes and Amazon MP3. The music video for “Girls” was also released on Myspace that same day. Se7en ‘s “Girls” music video premiered on BET 106 & Park on June 2, 2009. Se7en has recently revealed, by means of 2NE1’s Nolza Japan Concert, that he is planning a comeback in Japan after his four year hiatus since 2007. He has revealed that this album will have a Pop concept and that his first official fanmeet will be on November 6 of this year. Se7en has also revealed that he will be releasing a digital single named ‘Angel’ in November of this year, and will release a full Japanese album along side a Korean album in January 2012. Se7en released his 2nd mini-album on February 1, 2012 with title track “When I Can’t Sing.” The track was produced by JYP and written by JYP making it the first ever official collaboration between YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment.
