Park Hyo-shin (박효신)

OK guys, wanna get the Mrs in the mood for make sexy time? (yeah, that’s a bona fide phrase…didn’t ya watch Borat?:-P) Then may I suggest letting the deep, husky and extremely sexy vocals of Park Hyo-shin work its magic ;-).

What, you don’t believe me? Here, listen to the guy! It’s not everyday you find a voice like that on a 26-year-old! Thus, it’s little wonder that Hyo-shin is known as one of the best male vocalists in Korea.

He debuted in Jan 2000, making heads turn with tracks like Things I Cannot Do for You and Fool.

His sophomore album, Second Story, was released the following year. However, it wasn’t until his 3rd album – Time Honored Voice – was released in 2002 when he finally scored a #1 hit with A Good Person.

When he released his 4th album, Soul Tree, the song Standing in that Place also made it to the top of the charts. Nonetheless, the singer is more known for recording Snow Flower, the theme song to the KBS drama I Am Sorry I Love You.

Hyo-Shin took a break in 2006 and prepared for his 5th album – The Breeze of Sea – which was released in early 2007.

While rehearsing for a concert earlier this year, Hyo-shin collapsed due to fatigue. It was reported that the R&B singer felt pain in his vocal chords, wasn’t eating well and was over-practicing.

Oh, we really hope he didn’t do permanent damage to his vocals after the incident; it would be a shame to lose something as unique as that.
