DJ DOC is a hip-hop and rap group consisting of 3 members; Lee Haneul(born on May 4th, 1974), Kim Chang-ryeol(born on January 19th, 1974) and Jung Jae-yong(born on July 17th, 1973). The trio first debuted in 1994 with the song “The Sorrow of Superman.” All 3 members having worked as DJs at clubs, DJ DOC(Dream of Children) knew from the beginning how to thrill the audience. Their exciting raps, comical dance moves and witty songs captivated the hearts of music lovers. With a huge success with their debut album, the trio changed one of the members and moved to another management agency to release their 2nd album. It was then when Jung Jae-yong joined the trio. In 1995, the hip-hop rappers also saw a great response from their fans with “Murphy’s Law,” the title song of their 2nd album. Their popularity continued to the climax when they released their 3rd album in 1996. The album included the trio’s best hits like “The Beauty and the Beast,” “My Success Story,” “A Winter Story” and “She’s Got Long Eye Lashes.” However, from their 4th album, the hip-hop group started to experience some difficulties in performing in public. As the lyrics of some songs contained vulgar and too direct expressions of criticizing the society and sexual depictions, some words had to be changed in order to be performed in public. Although there were some obstacles in pursuing their music, DJ DOC still managed to record a hit, probably their biggest, with the song “Dance With DJ DOC” included in their 4th album. This year, the hip-hop trio will celebrate their 10 years of career by holding a concert on the New Year’s Eve.
