Ulala Session (stylized as ULALA SESSION) (Korean: 울랄라 세션) is a K-pop boy band that gained popularity after it won the 2011 talent show competition Superstar K3.[1] Ulala Session's members are: Lim Yoon-taek (b. ca. 1980 – d. 2013), Goon jo (b. ca. 1980), Kim Myung-hoon (b. ca. 1983), Park Seung-il (b. ca. 1981), and Park Kwang-sun (b. ca. 1990).[1]


Prior to their appearance on Superstar K3, the group was not widely known in South Korea, performing "anywhere, even in the middle of a schoolyard if there was a stage."[1]

During Superstar K3, audiences responded particularly fondly to lead singer Lim's battle with stomach cancer.[1] This led to some speculation that Ulala Session was making up the story of Lim's cancer as a way to garner sympathy during the competition; Lim responded in July 2012 by bringing his doctor on SBS's One Night in TV Entertainment to confirm the diagnosis.[2]

On 11 February 2013, Lim Yoon-taek, leader of Ulala Session, died from gastric cancer.[3][4]
