» Biography

Sweet Sorrow consists of four male vocalists, In Hojin, Song Woojin, Kim Youngwoo and Sung Jinhwan.

The name of the group, "Sweet Sorrow," comes from Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." They came up with this name when they were going through hardships in 2002.

The four met at the Glee Club, the male choir of Yonsei University. In, the oldest and the leader of the group, explained how they formed Sweet Sorrow. "The Glee Club had two concerts every year, summer and winter. Eight members of the choir formed an a cappella group to try something new at the concerts and arranged songs that garnered good reactions from the audience. Later, only four of us were left," said In.

Their turning point as professional musicians came when they won the Yoo Jae-ha Music Competition in 2004. They received first-prize with their original namesake song, "Sweet Sorrow,' and they were contracted by sevral agencies. Finally, Sweet Sorrow signed a contract with Mezoo Cultures and released their first album named "Sweet Sorrow" in November 2005.

Their first album was not a big hit. Later, they worked on the soundtracks for the 2006 drama "Alone in Love" and "War of Money" in 2007 and got recognition. Later in 2007, they took part in "Showvival," a Korean version of "American Idol" aired on MBC. Sweet Sorrow immediately gained popularity for their arrangement of hit songs and won during the program's second season.

They released their second album, "SweeticS," last week to show their charm through their original music. They composed all songs on the album, keeping with their principles.

"The title means 'the study of sweet (sorrow),' like economics or linguistics. This album is an archive of what Sweet Sorrow has learned until now," said Kim. At their Web site (www.sweetsorrow.co.kr), visitors can "attend lectures" of the four sweet professors through video clips.

Since they are known more for soundtracks or "Showvival," this album is more important to them. "We have to satisfy those who only know Sweet Sorrow from 'Showvival' and also show them where we are headed," said Kim.

Songs on the second album are much lighter than on previous albums. "All theses songs reflect the present Sweet Sorrow. I guess the cheerful and bright mood of this album is our current state, more cheerful and brighter than before," said Song.

The group is open to other fields such as acting and comedy on variety shows. For instance, the leader, In, will appear as a guest star in an episode of KBS's "Drama City," which will air March 8.

However, they emphasize their roots in music. "We will always be faithful to our music," said Song.

Look them up on Youtube. Just type in "sweet sorrow" or "sweetsorrow" and watch some videos. (:

They are on Kiss the Radio (Sukira) with Super Junior's Leeteuk and Hyukjae a lot. They seem to be close friends with them.

actually i suspect they're not v young. 3 of the members were born in the 70s (they refuse to reveal the actual year, just tt they're born in 197x. like girls refusing to reveal their age. kekekeke.). only the mangnae Jinhwan was born in 81.

i started listening to their music 2 or 3 yrs ago, from their 1 jib times when they used to be regular guests on danny's kiss the radio - they used to do a lot of radio performances. they might not be the best looking group around, but their voices are amazing and they can be really funny. i love their acapella and live performances, and i'm so hooked on "사랑해" now.

Amazing performance. Sweet Sorrow came out to the stage after V.O.S sang Beautiful Life, then they sang & danced together ^^ Sung Jinhwan did a bunch of imitation of other singers which wowed the audience (including SG Wannabe Jinho's voice imitation) :D

I've been waiting for this thread:)

I first heard them in sukira and i though "wow these boys are GOOD"

their live performance (in music bank) is also a very good, especially when compared to other overly poppish k-pop groups (no mean to bash any :sweatingbullets:) ..

they are really a talented group (but sadly underated). i hope anyone can update their biography. :D

found an MV [sweet sorrow - love me not] :

(credit : vanillamilknn)

is it for an ost for a movie? which movie? thanks for anyone who answers :)

yeay, finally, a thread for Sweet Sorrow!

thanks a lot for creating this thread, artful_DODGER xD

I first got to know Sweet Sorrow when they joined MBC Show Survival.

I was impressed when they sang I Want it That Way & Cheon Il Dongan.

Underrated btw. huhu. Oh well, at least we all know they are talented, right? ;)
