Super Changddai is one of the leading composers of Korean pop music today, who was fortunate enough to collaborate with legendary composers and singers such as Hyunddo Lee and Younghun Ju when he started out. As the chief composer for JYP (one of the three big Korean entertainment companies) he worked with lots of Korean icons such as 2 PM, 2 AM, Miss A, ApinK, and Teen Top. Nowadays, Super Changddai has his own company – Super Changddai Lab – where he produces his own artists.
As a composer who studied classical music, he did not want to be seen only as a producer of Korean pop dance music, so he got actively involved in other genres. Among his musical achievements are having written music for girl band "Ladies' Code" mixing Korean dance music with funk, the soundtrack for the "Mask Dalho" movie where Korean traditional Trot music meets rock, and some mid-tempo acoustic pop songs for renowned singer "Park Boram". Super Changddai's motto is "Make pop music people liked in the past, like now and will like in future".
Here are some examples of Super Changddai's oeuvre:
Ladies' Code - Pretty Pretty
Mask Dalho (movie) - 2 Lane Road
Park Boram - Dynamic Love
Kim Bum Soo - Real Meal
Apink - I don't know
Jang Woo Young - Rose (Japanese version)
BaeK A Yeon - Sad Song
Super Changddai has a pair of
EVE Audio SC203
desktop loudspeakers in his studio and this is what he has to say about them:
"They are very comfortable to work with without hurting your ears. I use the SC203s as a second pair of speakers now and am very surprised with the deep and tight bass that comes out of such small speakers. I can even mix exclusively on the SC203s without a single issue".
