  • AKMU, the sibling duo of Lee Chan-hyuk and Lee Su-hyun, are from Mongolia. With a different upbringing than most teenagers, their first appearance on K-Pop Star alongside nature was refreshingly new. Perhaps what we needed in our monotonous daily lives was the ordinary yet beautifully optimistic perspective of these two siblings. With catchy lyrics and lively melodies, AKMU captured the hearts of the judges and the public in an instant during the program. Their reinterpretation of ordinary themes and playful transitions always feel pleasant and comforting. A year after the audition, AKMU is now bringing a breath of fresh air as YG Entertainment's rookie artists with their debut album.

    Their debut album [PLAY] signifies playing and communicating through music. The teaser video and album jacket, shot in Jeju Island, showcase AKMU's pure and untainted image, reminiscent of mysterious beings in the forest. Raised in Mongolia, the siblings blend seamlessly with nature, and their album exudes a healthy, organic vibe that stands out from the rest, which might even feel extraordinary when seen through the eyes of the outside world. They see the complicated and dizzying world with a pure perspective, naturally expressing it through their music like organic farming.

    In this debut album, the siblings tackle common subjects with their unique perspectives. Tracks like “On the Subway,” “Anyway,” and “Hair Part” are infused with AKMU's imaginative and creative flair, making them relatable to all listeners. Their music offers subtle healing to those exhausted by the world. LEE CHANHYUK, the main producer of AKMU, composed and wrote lyrics for all the songs, showcasing his talents as a singer-songwriter. SUHYUN's stable and soothing voice adds pure strength to the music. The sight of the guitar-playing brother and singing sister bring a warm smile to our faces. Hoping that AKMU's extraordinary music brings comfort to this chaotic world, we press play on their musical journey.
