Korean name: 티어라이너
Tearliner actually started out as a six member band in January of 2004, but before the release of its first album, the group turned into a duo and then a one man band. Tearliner, who also just goes by Liner, born Park Sung-hoon, was never classically trained and doesn’t even read sheet music. His music is influenced by everything he has experienced in life and is classified by some as “Dream Pop,” because his music has a dream-like quality to it.
Tearliner was first signed to Pastel Music which was founded in 2003 and was, at the time, Korea’s leading music house of K-indie artists such as Humming Urban Stereo, Misty Blue, and Casker. Currently, Liner is signed under Happy Robot records.
Other than his own works, Tearliner included the music of several other K-indie bands on the Coffee Prince OST like Humming Urban Stereo. The Melody, Casker, Misty Blue, Belle Epoque, and Donawhale. Due to his skillful use of music within the drama, fans of the drama also fell in love with its music. There was a noticeable surge in interest and popularity of K-indie music after the run of the Coffee Prince which many attribute to Tearliner. He has also worked on the music for the K-dramas Romantic Island and Triple.
