Oh noes! Jisun leaving Loveholic
Singer Jisun is leaving popular rock band Loveholic to go solo!
The remaining two band members will be looking for a new vocalist as Jisun embarks on a solo career. The decision was made after careful deliberation by all parties involved, including producers and their label Fluxus Music.

To send her off in style, Loveholic will be having a two-day concert on the 27th and 28th in Seoul to say goodbye and thanks to the singer they’ve had since her debut in 2003.
I suppose the news shouldn’t come as a surprise — the more I think about it, the more it seems it was inevitable, with Jisun doing a lot of activities working with artists outside of Loveholic. Although she’s arguably the most visible and recognizable member of the band, she isn’t (the whole of) the band, and she must’ve felt the pull to do her own thing.
She’s collaborated with numerous other artists, such as Clazziquai, W, and Epik High. She and Clazziquai’s Alex released a digital single together, with the song “사랑해” (I love you), which is Part 2 to the song “너무 아픈 이말…” (these painful words); the two songs have a two-part music video too, whose concept was also used in a Shin Hye Sung video (but much better done with Alex & Jisun, I thought).

I’d hate to see either side fade after the split, so let’s hope they both keep going strong.
