Kim Jong Kook first debuted in September 1995 as part of the dance duo TURBO. TURBO was well received and were quite popular in the 1990s with hit songs such as "Black Cat", "Hwesang (December)", and many other dance songs. TURBO disbanded in 2001 and soon after that Kim Jong Kook turned solo.

He officially debuted as a solo singer with his first solo album released in December 2001. However, it wasn’t until his second solo album with the song "Han Namja / One Man" in 2004 that Kim Jong Kook became a household name in K-pop. He followed up his hit 2nd album with an even bigger hit. His 3rd album with title songs "Walking In One Spot" and "Loveable" earned huge success resulting in Kim Jong Kook sweeping the 3 Daesang (top year end music awards) from all 3 major TV stations. This achievement is a special one as this is only the second time since Jo Yong Phil did so in the 1980s that an artist swept all 3 awards of the major TV stations. In March 2006 Kim Jong Kook received his military service enlistment letter at the height of his popularity and career. He quickly finished up all recording for his 4th album and managed to release it in April 2006. Despite him not being able to do any promotion at all, the album sold well. After more than 2 years of absence Kim Jong Kook came back to the music world with his 5th album in October 2008 and regained his spot as one of the top male singers in K-pop.

Earlier this year in January 2010 Kim Jong Kook released his 6th solo album called "Eleventh Story". "Eleventh Story" symbolizes the 11 albums that he has released so far (5 TURBO albums and 6 solo albums). He is currently actively doing promotion for the title song "This Is The Person."

Besides being just a singer, Kim Jong Kook was also active in variety shows. He was a regular guest/permanent members of SBS X-Man (2004-2006), KBS Shootdori (2006), and SBS Family Outing Season 1 (2008-2010).
