Biography

Shuttle Loop is a Korean emo, post hardcore band from Seoul formed in 2005 by Jinsan Sung, Soohong Cho, Hyunmo Ahn. Their first musical influence was from pop punk and emo bands such as The Starting Line, Yellowcard, Jimmy Eat World, and Finch. They started playing their own tunes on stage in 2006 with a newly added guitarist Keehong Lee. In 2007 Keehong Lee joined the band as a front man taking Sung's singer position. Also, Sangkyu Yim replaced Ahn as the drummer. Ahn had to leave the band to focus on his accounting career.

They started playing for bigger stages in 2007. With a good amount of following the band was scouted to play for weekend shows at a venue 'Sapiens 7 Live House', the lable of which later signed the band in the summer of 2008. The band went to a studio for recording 'How Are You Today'. The album contained 4 songs the band played over the years. Especially the song 'Here With Me' had been played since almost the beginning of the band; it used to be sung by Sung. After the release of the album, the band played every weekend night's popular shows to promote the album.

The band had to take a break from 2009 due to the military serves of all the members with the exception of Cho. Cho started working on more songwriting than ever which led the band to work on their next EP 'Time is Not'. Sung managed to play a big part of the whole process while in the military. The album has some songs from their live set in 2007~2008, and some songs from Cho's personal songwriting work, which changed the band's musical direction a bit; He didn't write a song from 'How Are You Today'.

After the release they played a couple of shows to promote the album, and Cho leaves for Ontario to pursue his musical career. Also Keehong and Sangyu went to military service. Sung kept writing their own music to keep the momentum going until 2013.

After 2013, the band members lost their touch and tried to get their lives sorted out. And in 2014 they stated discussing about another album release with the materials that had been written since 2011 mainly by Sung. In addition, when Keehong was on a business trip to Ontario, Cho suggested a material for him to sing on, and they finished the song and named 'The Anchor', which was the last song that was picked to be in the album. They spent half a year from 2014 recording, mixing, and mastering all by themselves. Sung did the recording, editing, design and video, and Cho took over the mixing and mastering part. The band is currently working on releasing promotion videos.
