History[edit]

After Sechskies had disbanded in 2000, 2 years later, Kim Jaeduck and Jang Suwon formed a duet under Kiss Entertainment, releasing two albums in 2002. Their debut hit "Suddenly" was very popular among fans, and it went as high as No. 2 on the music charts. However, their follow up album "Someday" was not as successful.[1] They won SBS Gayo Daejeon Popularity Award with former Sechs Kies member Kang Sunghun in 2002.

In 2004, they formed a project boyband JnC with fellow labelmate Click-B who had also belonged to DSP in the past. After the collaboration, there were talks of releasing a third album for J-Walk. In 2007, they signed with Vitamin Entertainment and released first mini albums Sun Shower(여우비)after a five-year hiatus.[2] They held a showcase of its new album in Seoul on October 2007. Eun Jiwon and Lee Jaijin joined it onstage to congratulate their comeback.[3]

In June 2008, J-Walk collaborated with their former Sechskies leader Eun Jiwon for a new song called "My Love" in the third album. Since Kim Jaeduck entered the military shortly after, Suwon had to promote the album by himself. Suwon entered the military on December 2009 and He was released from the army on October 2011.[4]

After they were discharged from army, J-Walk has signed under A&G Modes and released some digital songs.[5] They returned with mini album "Love...Painfully" with main track "Strive" on December 2013.[6] During preparing for a new album comeback, they made the difficult decision to adjust their schedule to join past label DSP Media’s first family concert “DSP Festival” with Eun jiwon on December 14.[7]
