SE7EN (Korean: 세븐, born Choi Dong-Wook, 최동욱, Hanja: 崔東昱, November 9, 1984) is an electropop and R&B singer from Seoul, South Korea. Se7en began training under a management agency YG Entertainment at the age of 15. After 4 years of training in voice and dance, Se7en made his debut in 2003 and became successful throughout Asia. His impressive vocal range, smooth dance moves, and his refusal to lip-sync during live performances has earned him accolades in the music industry as well as heartthrob status.
Se7en has also acted the lead role of the Korean drama Goong S, a spin-off of popular drama Goong. Although the first season of Goong was a hit, Goong S has failed to attract many viewers. Despite the low ratings, Goong S is the most searched and rewatched drama online; ranking higher than its competition: KBS2 Dal Ja's Spring and SBS Surgeon Bong Dal Hee. The drama has also gained a wide variety of support from international fans in the U.S., Thailand, Malaysia, Brazil, Singapore, etc.
Se7en has been preparing for his debut in the U.S. Mark Shimmel, Rich Harrison, and Noize Trip are helping Se7en to create his first English language album. It was also reported that Teddy from 1TYM has produced a song for Se7en's American album and possibly will make more songs.
On March 10, 2009, Se7en debuted in the U.S. with the digital single Girls, featuring Lil' Kim.
