Junny debuted in 2017 with the single “Thank You” and would go onto release a debut EP “Monochrome” that same year. Since then, he has released numerous singles and EPs garnering fans such as IU, NCT and EXO’s Baekhyun, Kai and Suho. BTS’ Jungkook also sang Junny’s song “By My Side” during a livestream.
The soloist also has several notable collaborators: Punchnello on the 2019 track “Trust” off the EP “Vivid, Pt. 2,” Kid Milli in 2020’s track “New Girl,” Youha in “Sober” and Jay B with “Fame.” Most recently, he collaborated with pH-1 for “Get Ya!” in May and Chungha for “Color Me” in June. He has also contributed OST songs “Edge” and “I Will” for 2020 K-drama “It’s Okay to be Sensitive” and “Alone” for the 2021 drama “The Witch’s Diner.”
According to Unbound Entertainment Group, Junny’s “Blanc” album is “inspired by JUNNY’s thoughts on how he is influenced by those he spends his time with, resembling a blank canvas that absorbs many different colors. With this project, he hopes to show the colors of his early and mid-twenties, with each track going back in time to explore Junny’s past experiences in chronological order. In this manner, blanc is a farewell to his youth and a look into how the artist plans to live his life moving forward.”
Junny’s journey is that of a Vancouver immigrant who at age 4 would routinely upload songs to YouTube and SoundCloud before pursuing music fully with a move back to South Korea at age 23.
