DJ Doc is a South Korean hip-hop trio consisting of members Kim Chang-ryeol, Lee Ha-neul and Jung Jae-yong. DJ DOC released their first album, Sorrow of Superman, in 1994. They went on to experience great commercial success, and many of their singles, including 1997's "Dance with DOC," and 2000's "Run To You," are now considered iconic K-pop songs.[1][2]


The original band debuted with Park Jung-hwan, but he left the group after the release of the first album due to disagreement between the members. After his departure, he started his own car dealership.[3]

On November 11, 2011, Park Jung-hwan formally filed a lawsuit against DJ DOC for defamation after comments made by Lee Ha-neul regarding his departure on a television appearance aired November 3, 2011 on Happy Together Season 3.[3][4]

Despite several apologies made by Lee Ha-neul, the lawsuit was not rescinded. On February 22, 2012, DJ Doc was cleared of the defamation charges for lack of evidence.[3][4][5]

On August 9, 2013, Lee Ha-neul became a judge for season 5 of South Korean television talent show Superstar K.[6]
