Hyun Jun (주현준, born January 2, 1987), better known as June, is a solo R&B singer under Sony Music Japan. He is Korean by birth, but is a performer in Japan. So far, he has released three singles and most recently a mini-album. His first single "Baby It's You" was used as the ninth ending theme for the anime Bleach. His second single, "Pride of Tomorrow", was the second ending theme for the anime D.Gray-Man.

Background[edit]

June first began singing in his second year of intermediate school. After his friends told him he was not good at singing, he practiced for two years until, finally, during his first year of high school, he was able to move his friends to tears with his singing.

At the age of 17, June recorded a cover of Musiq's Love. This song reached Matsuo "KC" Kiyoshi, a well-known R&B producer, who then flew to Korea to meet June. June studied Japanese for a year to prepare, and then he made his major debut under Sony in November 2006 at the age of 19.

He was featured on the 12th track of TBNY's first album Masquerade (매스퀘레이드, 가장), released in 2006, with the song titled 왜 서있어 or "Why Are You Standing".

June also helped to arranged, composed and produced songs for Kuroki Meisa, K and South Korea actor/singer Jang Geun-suk.

As of 2012 June is performing in the Japanese R&B trio Wazz Up.
