Andy made his entrance on stage amidst high-decibel screams from the fans and kicked off the fanmeeting with ‘Propose’. He even greeted the fans in Chinese, saying “大家好！我是Andy，我愛妳們!” (Hi everyone, I’m Andy, I love you all!”
When the video with scenes of Shinhwa’s first Taiwan trip played on the screens, the fans seemed to be transported back in time as they exclaimed at the precious footage.

Jumper, whose producer is Andy, said “Our captain is very scary.”
When we suggested that they talk about Andy (Lee Sun Ho, 28), the newcomer male duo Jumper (made up of 21-year-old Park Dong Min and 18-year-old Rocky) hesitate, but just like the new generation, they said what had to be said.
“Captain Andy is very shy, if only he could talk more to us. If he just stays there quietly it seems like he’s angry.”
(Park Dong Min, rapper)
“He’s kind to us like he is to others too… He would correct our mistakes, but he’s most scary when he’s indifferent towards us.”
(Rocky, main vocalist)
But producer Andy who was together with Jumper at the interview simply burst out into laughter.( the rest of the news under the cut--Collapse )

Singer and now producer Andy’s first producing assignment will be for the new male duo JUMPER, who has finally been unveiled to the public.
On 20th Jan, Jumper’s management company TOP Media officially introduced the newcomers for the first time on their Cyworld page (http://town.cyworld.com/toptop). TOP Media said, “This Exciting Boy Duo, who will excite all of Korea and inject a fresh burst of energy into the music scene in 2009 with their fun and feel-good dance music, has been named Jumper.”
The site posted pictures of the two members and introduced them as leader Rocky (Kim Rok Hyun, 18 ) who will be the main vocalist, and Park Dongmin (21), who will take on rap and backup vocals.
TOP Media added, “Initially we only wanted to reveal the details in early February, but recently photos from Rocky’s minihompy page of himself with actor Seo Minwoo, taken at Andy’s fanmeeting in Japan have been circulating around the Internet, and created the misunderstanding that Seo Minwoo is the other member.”
Jumper has already done a photoshoot together with Andy in early January for the February issue of InStyle, with the concept of ‘Valentine’s Day Chocolate Gifts’, ahead of their debut in mid-February.
On the other hand, before their debut, they will also appear as special guests at Andy’s birthday fanmeeting “Happy Birthday To Andy” on 21st Jan, which will be broadcast live on GomTV at 8pm.

“Although I like kind, sensitive characters, but I think I have to try being a villain”
For seven months of 2008, every Sunday evening Korean mothers watched Andy as he showed his thoughtful and sensitive side as a husband, and eventually picked him to be their ideal son-in-law. However, Andy has since left the variety scene for the stage . “Singles” is already Andy’s 3rd musical production, and Andy’s own musical of life is developing with even more passion.( rest of the article under the cut -- Collapse )
- Music:Awaken - 신혜성
Andy has taken to the musical stage for the 3rd time with Singles.
"At first I was just thinking of how to go about doing musicals, but the more musicals I take part in, the more I want to excel at it."
Andy added, "During my first performance, my heart was beating especially fast, but after repeated interactions with the world of musicals, I've overcome that fear."
"Back then, I was too busy having to act and sing at the same time, but now I can see the expressions of the audience and what they're saying."
The musical version of Singles made its stage debut last year with singers Lee Hyun Woo and Son Ho Young taking on the role of Soo Hyun prior to Andy. Andy said, "The earlier performances of Singles were really great. I'm feeling the pressure now, and I'm worried about whether I can pull off the role. That's why I've done research in many areas, and I've also asked for advice from the other cast members. I hope to let everyone see my own style."
