Biography

Kim Ho Kyung (simply known as Tei, 테이, born April 4, 1983) is a Korean pop singer.
Tei was born in Ulsan, South Korea. Park Kyung Jun of Kiss Creative Group discovered him while searching through a Korean karaoke website for new talent. Before being discovered Tei wanted to be an architect and studied at Gyeongnam University.

He adopted a stage name “Tei” to be close to his fans. In French, Te means you. So Tei means You and I. Tei’s voice is easily recognizable. It is low and husky, but not as low as Park Hyo Shin and Lim Jae Bum. With this unique voice, he is very good at singing emotional ballads.

His debut album titled The First Journey was released in 2004. The first single, “And Love Leaves a Scent” soon became his first number one hit. Tei’s second album Ucu Pra Cacia was released in 2005. Ucupracacia is the name of an imaginary plant in a novel by Kim Ha-in which dies when touched, but revives after the same person falls in love and caresses it. It reflects Tei’s wishes for his fans’ continuous love after his first album sold 110,000 copies. The title song “Love Is…The One” reached No. 1 in many charts again, and it made another record - it became the only song to debut at No. 1 on our popularasians weekly chart. That record still holds to this date. Another song “Falling in love with the memory tree” also went to No. 2. Also, the song “I am Sorry” was later covered by Hong Kong singer Kenny Kwan. In terms of popular songs, this album is considered his most successful album so far.

Late in 2005, Tei released his 3rd album 그리움을 외치다 “Crazy For Love” with the title song “Cry For Affection”. Needless to say, this is another No. 1 song for Tei. Up to now the title song from each of his 3 albums have reached No. 1.
