Sharp (stylized as S♯arp) was a South Korean pop music vocal group in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The group consisted of Chris Kim, Jang Seok-hyun, Seo Ji-young and Lee Ji-hye. A male original member, John Kim (UPTOWN, Slow-Jam) quit the group after the first album. They released five albums before breaking up. Their last album was "S♯arp Vol. 5 - StYlE." S#arp was a very successful group that won many 1st places on k-pop charts with songs like "Sweety", "백일 기도", "내 입술… 따뜻한 커피처럼", and others.

The group's breakup was attributed to the inability of the female singers to work together. After the breakup, a greatest hits album was released on January 24, 2003.

Since the breakup, Seo Ji-young has released two solo albums entitled Listen to My Heart and Different This Time. Lee Ji-hye released a solo album entitled Without You (Korean: 그대 없이 난) and a special single with the lead song "Love Me Love Me". Chris Kim also released a solo album entitled Christopher. Jang Seok-hyun is yet to release a solo album but the public was startled by his weight loss, which is said to be 30 kg. He later admitted that he lost weight in order to debut as an actor.
