Biography

부활 (Boo Hwal – Born Again), is a Korean rock band formed in 1985 by the guitarist/songwriter 김태원. He changed the name from The End to 부활 in ‘86 following the departure of the vocalist 김종서 (Kim Jong Seo). They led the heavy metal boom in the 80’s along with other bands such as 백두산 (Baekdoosan), 시나위 (Sinawe), H2O, and 블랙홀 (Black Hole). 부활, 백두산, and 시나위 were called the Big 3 by the media as they were all led by talented guitarists (부활김태원, 백두산김도균 Kim Do Kyun, 시나위신대철 Shin Dae Chul), However, unlike bands like 시나위, they have been concentrating more and Korean-style melodic rock ballads, especially after their 3rd album.

After receiving high praises in the underground music scene for their music, they became instantly popular once they released their first major album. The album featured the most popular vocalist to come out of 부활, 이승철 (Lee Seung Chul). The 2nd album, also with 이승철, was also a big success. Their success was a result of many aspects, including 김태원’s ability to write beautiful songs ranging from rock to ballad, 이승철’s ability to sing, and 부활’s overall talent for music. However, 이승철 and 김태원 went their separate ways in 1988. 김태원 worked on many side projects until getting the band together for their 3rd album.

After regrouping, they released their 3rd album in 1993 featuring the hit single 사랑할수록. The album was a success, partly due to the emotional story of 김재희 (Kim Jae Hee) finishing the recording after his brother, the original vocalist at the start of the recording, 김재기 (Kim Jae Ki)’s sudden death.
