Jang Kiha, born in February of 1982, started his music career as the drummer of the modern-rock group Nunco Band (눈뜨고 코베인), which was formed in 2002. Jang’s popularity exploded after he put out his self-produced debut in 2008, a single album called “Cheap Coffee," which met with incredible fan response. Following that wild success, he released his official first album under the group name Jang Kiha and the Faces (장기하와 얼굴들).
The name of the band comes from the nickname Jang picked up as the “best-looking of the indie scene” — hence the “faces.” Jang sings vocals, plays guitar and percussion, and writes the songs. “The Faces,” who all sing in the chorus, include bassist Jung Joong-yub, guitarist Lee Min-ki, drummer Kim Hyun-ho, and backup dancers, the Mimi Sisters.
