    Lee Hanchul (Invited Artist, Korea)

    01_☆thumnail_green_button_final_80x80.jpgFollowing an invitation from asianbeat, 2005 was the year I made my first public performance in Fukuoka. That was a really chaotic period of my life as my band "Bulldog Mansion", which had been the most valuable aspect of my musical life, had split up and I found myself alone. Being by myself, after having spent so much time with the other members of the band, was a difficult thing, but it was challenge that I needed to overcome.

    Lee HanchulAfter that, with the help of musicians around me, I created a new band and we headed for Fukuoka. And it was through the stage that asianbeat had given me that I was able to take my first steps as a solo artist, and also encounter the humanity and warmth of the friends that I met in Fukuoka. Whilst recording the album, I also produced "도은호의 사랑 (Doeunho's Love)," a song based on the encounters I had in Fukuoka. Finally, the album I was working on, “Superstar” became my first number 1 hit.

    Since that day 10 years have already passed. From the bottom of my heart I want to say congratulations to asianbeat for their 10th anniversary. Moreover, writing this message brings to mind once again the special bond that I have with asianbeat and I also want to share with you how great it is to be able to look back having lived my life as a musician. Looking forward, I will to strive for exchange to take place between Korea and Japan, as well as the cultures and arts of other Asian countries and regions. Thank you so much!
