A Bit About My Background:
Born in Anyang City, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, Hee-jun Han moved to New York when he was 12 years old. He eventually auditioned for American Idol and later became the first Korean singer in the history of the show to make it to the finale. He was highly praised by judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, and even got a standing ovation from the entire judge panel with the song "A Song For You". After moving back to Korea, in addition to writing music and singing, Hee-jun keeps himself busy by hosting “Men On Air”, providing two hours of music and entertainment everyday to the foreigners living in Korea as well to the Koreans who want to learn more English. Greg Priester is an American who has relocated to Korea. Greg was born in South Carolina and very shy as a child, but he admired the way his father sang at church, so he wanted to be a singer when he grow up. To his surprise, his father was not at all impressed by his plan, telling him not to daydream, but find a regular job and live a stable life. After working at two jobs to make ends meet, Greg decided to travel a bit and visited several Asian countries before landing at Seoul, Korea, the place he decided to settle down. Greg began working as an English instructor in Seoul and learning Korean at the same time. Seoul is an international metropolis with people from all corners of the world. Greg quickly found like-minded friends and began to sing again. He and his friends even participated in a talent show called "Superstar K". One day, after Greg’s clip of singing a Korean ballad was aired on TV, he found himself an internet sensation. Many people imitated the way he sang, even members of EXO, BTS and Wanna One imitated him on variety shows. Since then Greg's music career took off. He started a YouTube channel and regularly covers songs from other artists and now the channel has more than 400,000 subscribers. He has also released five singles, one of which was in Korean. Now Greg is active on television variety shows as well as hosting “Men On Air”.
