Biography

Seoul, South Korea (1996 – present)

Yiruma, stage name of Lee Ru-ma (이루마, born February 15 1978, Seoul, South Korea) is a South Korean piano music composer.

His albums are sold all over Asia, as well as the United States and Europe. His most famous pieces include “Kiss the Rain”, “Maybe” and “River Flows in You”.

Yiruma started to learn the piano at home in Korea at the age of 5. In 1988 he moved to England, and in December 1996 he participated in the album The Musicians of Purcell (Decca). He graduated from Purcell Specialist Music School (London) in July 1997, then from King’s College London in June 2000.

He said “I’m Christian, and I am not a new age artist. Most people misunderstand me.”
Although he formerly held dual citizenship as a citizen of the United Kingdom and South Korea, in July 2006 he gave up his British citizenship and entered the Republic of Korea Navy to begin his military service, which is mandatory for all male South Koreans.

    I posted this on the other page too but in hopes that more will read it I've posted it here--Regarding the name corrections: It appears to me that he releases his music under his "Yiruma" given most album covers. Remember that the last.fm page should reflect how he's known as a musician, not necessarily as a person. I will definitely concede that "이루마" is his name as a person (for which "Lee Ru-ma" is a rough translation), but I would argue that "Yiruma" is his name as a musician; it's his stage name under which he releases his music. I'd love for someone to provide a counter-argument to this but quite frankly I haven't yet really seen a convincing argument for changing the page over to 이루마. [2] I was about to type something like that when I saw the comments but then saw I didn't have to aha.
