Humming Urban Stereo (Korean: 허밍 어반 스테레오) is a South Korean electropop band. The group was founded on February 15, 2004 in Seoul by Lee Jeereen.[1] The band consists of Lee and (mostly female) guest vocalists. Lee "sings, writes, composes, and arranges [the] music."[2] The most common guest vocalists are Shina-E and Humming Girl, who are considered part of the band.[2]

Humming Urban Stereo's first album was Very Very Nice! and Short Cake, released in January 2005. Its most popular song, Hawaiian Couple, a top ten hit[2] that reportedly sold over 500 000 downloads, came from the band's second album, Purple Drop, released in March 2006.[3] Hawaiian Couple was also featured in the film My Love, a popular 2007 South Korean romantic comedy, directed by Lee Han.[2]

In February 2007 the band released its third album, Baby Love.

In March 2012, the main female vocal "Humming Girl" Lee Jin-hwa died in Japan. Her cause of death was a heart disease. Lee Jin-wa flew to Japan to study abroad in 2007 after singing for Humming Urban Stereo, and had been living alone since for six or seven years.
