Park Se-yoon (Hangul: 박세윤), more commonly known as Crucial Star (Hangul: 크루셜 스타), is a South Korean rapper, singer-songwriter, and producer currently signed to C-JeS Entertainment.[1] He began his career at the age of 17, as a member of the hip hop group Libra Twins.[2]

Biography[edit]

Park Se-yoon was born on October 16, 1989 in Seoul, South Korea. His father is the painter Hang-Ryul Park.[3]

He made his musical debut at the age of seventeen in the hip hop group Libra Twins.[2] Several years later, he signed with independent hip hop label Soul Company, working under the name Crucial Star.[2] He and label mate Mad Clown collaborated on the digital album Mad Clown VS Crucial Star in 2010.[4] The following year, he released his first EP, A Star Goes Up, and his first full-length album, A Star From The Basement.[5][6]

Following the dissolution of Soul Company in 2012, Crucial Star moved to Grandline Entertainment.[2][7] While with Grandline, he released two mix tapes, Drawing #1: A Dream Spokesman (2012) and Drawing 2: A Better Man (2013), two albums, FALL (2012) and Midnight (2014), and one EP, Boyhood (2015).[8][9][10][11]

In 2015 he appeared as a contestant on Mnet television rap contest Show Me the Money 4. He was eliminated in the preliminary round after forgetting his lyrics.[12] In October 2015, Crucial Star's agency C-JeS Entertainment published a statement announcing that he and Unpretty Rapstar 2 contestant Heize were in a relationship.[13] A week after this announcement, it was reported that they had broken up several months prior.[14]

He left Grandline Entertainment in January 2016 when his contract ended.[15] In April, he signed with C-JeS Entertainment.[1]
