Born in Jeju-do, Baekho went to the regional qualifying rounds for the cable channel Mnet‘s program “Superstar K” in Jeju-do and was casted on the spot. Leaving behind the friend with whom he had checked out the scene with him, he alone set off for Seoul and met success. He may have become a singer by the slightest coincidence, but he is second to none when it comes to his passion. Upon seeing such an image, his agency’s sunbae UEE even gave him the name ‘Baekho’ (which means white tiger).
“UEE sunbaenim thought that I gave off a charisma and passionate image similar to Kang Baekho from the manga ‘Slam Dunk’ and thus named me accordingly. Ever since I was young, I’ve always admired TVXQ sunbaenim. I admired all of their powerful stages. They are now no longer an object of envy but rather a goal I wish to jump over and achieve.“ – Baekho
