Discovered in a South Korean talent show program ‘Superstar K’, KANG SEUNG YOON is now part of one of the biggest entertainment agency, YGE. He finished 4th of the said program and was popularly known for singing “Instinctively” which became a top-selling single in Korea, peaking at number one on the Gaon Chart. Before his official debut, he familiarized himself to the fans as a character in a sitcom called ‘High Kick! Revenge of the Short Legged’ along with f(x)’s Krystal and model-actor Lee Jong Suk. He was also involved in numerous endorsements such as Fanta (with Lee Kwangsoo & Baek Jin Hee) and Samsung (with Superstar K2 Top 4). Since then he has trained for a long time to realize his dream – to become a professional singer.

Finally on July 16th 2013 he released his debut single “IT RAINS” under YGE. The now 20-year old debuting artist KANG SEUNG YOON comes with a deeper voice as he sings with much determination, taking the first step as a real artist.

On October 25, 2013, Team A, Kang Seung Yoon’s team along with Song Minho, Kim Jinwoo, Lee Seung Hoon and Nam Taehyun, was hailed the WINNER of YG’s survival program to select his new boy group, WIN: Who Is Next. WINNER released their first full album, S/S 2014, digitally on August 12, 2014 and physically on the 14th. The group had their officially broadcast debut through SBS Inkigayo on August 14, 2014 and right then received numerous music show, music chart and year-end awards–most notable being 2014’s Best New Artist (2014 MAMAs, Gaon and Gold Disk Awards among others).
