On September 15th, Na Taejoo, singer, actor, and taekwondo performer under K-Tigers E&C, released his first mini-album, Life Train.
The lead vocalist of co-ed group K-Tigers Zero gained popularity through the program “Mister Trot” where he created a genre called “Taekwondo Trot” which received a positive reception from the public.
Life Train captures everything people loved about Taejoo on the show, consisting of three songs that blend well with the singer’s unique Taekwondo performance skills and his outstanding vocal talent.
The album was produced by trot hitmaker Park Hyun Jin and features the work of composers and songwriters prolifically experienced in the world of trot music. This includes lyricist Yoon Tae Ji, as well as arranger and pianist on the album, Kim Jung Mook.
Taejoo worked with some of the best session and producing teams in Korea, including bassist Shin Hyun Kwon, guitarist Park Kwang Min, saxophonist Kim Won Yong, trumpet player Kim Dong Ha, trombonist Lee Han Jin, and chorister Kim Hyun Ah.
