Originally a music producer in South Korea, Lee An chose Singapore as his base to launch his showbiz career after a chance visit to the bustling city-state.The singer, who is currently no stranger to kerepek ubi kayu (tapioca chips), beh teh soh (pastry cookies filled with molasses), and durian puffs, will be releasing his third album sometime this year. He has plans to promote his music in Singapore (of course) and other neighbouring countries such as Indonesia…and Malaysia (we hope).In January 2009, Lee An flew to Indonesia for a showcase as well as to appear on the local TV and radio stations.

The talent, who likes scuba diving, golfing and racing cars, also learned Mandarin and had included three Korean-Mandarin tracks in his sophomore album.
