The South Korean bass-baritone joined Oper Frankfurt's Opera Studio in the 2019/20 season. A graduate of Seoul National University, he took part in many productions whilst still a student, including Leporello and The Commendatore (Don Giovanni) and Raimondo (Lucia di Lammermoor, in concert). He made his professional debut singing Antonio (Le nozze di Figaro) in the Sowol Art Hall in Seoul. This season he took part in Křenek's Das geheime Königreich / The Secret Kingdom  and the new production of Salome, but the corona situation put paid to his sing the Captain in Manon Lescaut. His artistic development was strongly influenced by taking part in masterclasses held by, among others, Kwangchul Youn.
