MC Mong is an “Indian Boy” jeshicaa in K-Pop | 12 Jul 2009 - 09:27 PM
MC Mong will soon be making his comeback with his 5th album and the title song called "Indian Boy".
"Indian Boy" is written and composed by MC Mong, and its fun beat and brass would clearly represent MC Mong's music style. The song's theme is, "I am the Indian that can confront all difficulties for love (hinting at Joo Ah Min?)."
Sappy Indian boy? More like a monkey in an Indian costume.
MC Mong and his company struggled to pick their title song and only managed to narrow their choices down to 5 songs. After days of discussions, they finally decided on the song "Indian Boy". With this song, he will attempt to surpass the immense popularity of his song, "Circus" with fun and spectacular performances only MC Mong could pull off.
He also released a few photos from the scenes his music video.
MC Mong is a South Korean hip hop artist who is known for his comic disposition and his upbeat songs. He currently is a member of KBS's 1 Night, 2 Days, a part of the network's Happy Sunday line-up. Go HERE for 1 Night 2 Days thread… http://www.soompi.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=133250
MC Mong first debuted as a member of People Crew, which debuted in 1998. Because he was overshadowed by other members in his group (as he was considered not as good-looking) he was not noticed until 2003, when he acted in MBC's Non-Stop 4. His albums are known mostly for their comedic styles (aided by humorous music videos), although his most recent album has taken on a slightly more serious tone. His nickname is "monkey", due to his resemblance to the animal; most Korean variety shows reference this. On a fall of 2006 episode of SBS's Ya Shim Man Man, he and his good friend Haha talked about their struggles when they were first trying to break into the industry. His parents had fought with him, telling him that he should not try to become a celebrity.
MC Mong's style falls into both the k-pop and Hip-hop genre. On top of his own rapping, MC Mong's songs frequently feature guest vocalists. For his third album, MC Mong flew to Tokyo, Japan to record a duet with Lisa, a former member of m-flo. MC Mong wanted a female vocalist to continue the sequel from his first album's "A Letter To You" which featured Lyn. Other vocalists featured in his album are Park Hyo Shin, Ivy, and MayBee.
In 2006, he proved his talents as a solo artist with his latest album The Way I Am. This album topped the charts on November 19, 2006, beating out "big names" like Rain and Se7en. In 2007, he started an online shopping mall, and became a DJ on SBS Power FM, hosting "MC몽의 동고동락". He made collaboration with Kim Tae Woo, making the single "So Fresh". At the end of 2007, MC Mong joined KBS's 1 Night, 2 Days, a part of the network's Happy Sunday line-up, as the replacement for Kim Jong Min.
In April of 2008, he released his 4th studio album, entitled Circus: Show's Just Begun. The first single and accompanying music video to the album is Circus.
