Noh Ajoo (노아주; born July 6, 1990, in Seoul, South Korea) is a South Korean singer, dancer, and performer.
Having trained under STAM Entertainment for 6 years (the same label as female artist Younha), Ajoo debuted on Valentine's Day 2008 with his single '1st KISS'. Ajoo has received a lot of support from his senior Younha who eventually became his piano teacher. The song 1st Kiss was written by Park Hwayobi, and it is said she got the idea for the song from Ajoo's very own lips.
Although his first single did not do as well as expected on music charts, he made a comeback with "Paparazzi" which features fellow label mate and popular female solo artist Younha. Younha also wrote the lyrics for the song and appeared in the music video.
He released a single in early 2009 titled "재벌2세" ("Wealthy 2nd Generation"), which deals with the topic of rich, spoiled children. The song was banned in its original state from KBS, saying that the song was encouraging excessive, indulgent lifestyles; this was criticized by the public, saying that KBS's own dramas were guilty of the same thing, namely its hit Boys Over Flowers.
