Singer-songwriter Lee Seung Hwan broke his own record!

He is known for his long and frequent performances, meeting his fans 20 to 50 times a year. Thus, he earned the well-deserved nickname of “King of Live Performances”. When he started his career, he only performed to a tiny audience of 10 people, but since he attracted crowds of tens of thousands.
The singer is the founder and president of the entertainment agency Dream Factory. Lee is about to release his 12th album on October 15, to celebrate his 30th anniversary in the music industry.
