Biography[edit]

Lyn was born on November 9, 1981. She graduated from Inchang High School and attended Konkuk University.

Career[edit]

Lyn was first scouted by an agency because of her voice and from there, she first made her debut under her real name, Lee Se-jin, and released an album.[1] The album sold poorly and was barely known. Lyn then took some time off to train vocally. She made a comeback in 2002 under the name Lyn with her supposedly first album Have You Ever Have A Broken Heart?. It was very successful and was able to shoot her up to one of the top R&B female solo singer of the year. After a surprise two years hiatus, Lyn released her second album Can U See The Bright. The album was very successful, surpassing her previous album with her popular single, "사랑했잖아" (Used To Love). Due to its popularity, the song was eventually covered on another successful singer Lee Seung-gi's album, released in late 2006. Lyn released her third album, The Pride of the Morning, on March 7, 2007, and sold 15,358 copies in that month, placing second in the Music Industry Association of Korea's monthly chart.[2] Again, it was a success and was once again reclaim her title as one of the best R&B female singer. Overall her album sold 25,171 copies. Lyn then released more albums afterwards, and did not become very successful, but in 2009 she made a comeback with her 5th album called 'Let Go, Let In, It's a New Day'.[3][4] In early 2012, she released her 7th album title 'Love Fiction'.[5]

In 2012, she sang "Back in Time" for the soundtrack of period drama Moon Embracing the Sun. She then sang "My Destiny" for My Love from the Star, for which she won "Best Original Soundtrack" at the 50th Baeksang Arts Awards in 2014. She is the first artist to win in the category.[6]
