Bio

wHOOL, meaning 'empty your mind and refresh yourself', was formed in 2003
by Yoonsang Choi, founder and a former member of Gongmyung. Choi is one of the most charismatic, inspiring, and creative musicians in his generation and he has led wHool since its establishment veering from music he previously did with Gongmyung and has taken his musical vision further by combining traditional vocal style with pop, electronic and rock elements that redefine the essence of Korean traditional music for the 21st century. Their instrumental pieces like , , are taken from folk songs that are very much well known in Korea, they have rearranged these pieces on electronic beats. These tracks represent the unique style of their own.

There is no doubt that the sound of wHool is exhilarating, raw, and solid so that they are the most favourite young contemporary Korean traditional group at present. The irrepressible energy of their music and performance also translate live as they never fail to thrill the audiences who go wild at the end. They perform vigorously in the Hong-ik University area where the Korean indie culture was born and the most vibrant district in Seoul.
