(넌 나의 구원)
WE don't have many rules for this community, but for the few that we have, we expect all members to abide by them.
  • Posts MUST be on topic. No exceptions.
    ↳ On topic posts include news articles, pictures, reports, media, graphics, anything that relates to them.

    ↳ It doesn't matter if you're posting a request for something, sharing a song, or a live performance, EVERY MEDIA POST must be friends locked.

  • Give credit where credit is due.
    ↳ Always give credit and never claim anything as yours unless you've actually done the translation/scan/found the article/etc. People have taken time out of their lives to actually translate/upload/anything for other members, so the least you can do is give credit.

  • Use the correct tags on your entries, with the tags already made for you.
    ↳ It will make looking through the community a lot easier for all the new and old members. If you feel that a tag was not created for what you are posting, let us know and we'll see what we'll do.

    ↳ Simply for easy reference. And also if you forget to to tag your entry, it will be easier for the mods to go back and do it for you. There are no title restrictions, but something along the lines of what your post contains is a good idea.

  • Be courteous to each other and the mods.
    ↳ Don't be obnoxious or a smart ass to anyone (especially not to the mods). Everyone in the community should be civil towards each other, especially when we have a difference of opinion.

  • Exercise the use of LJ-CUTS.
    ↳ When posting a huge picture, screencap or too much text, please use an LJ-CUT. There are no set rules as to when you should use it, but you should just keep it in mind.

  • Advertising is okay!
    ↳ As long as it refers to either Epik High or Korean music (pop, r&b, hip-hop) in general. Please don't excessively advertise or promote anything unrelated.

  • Offsite redirect links are not allowed.!
    ↳ As in, please do not just have an image or a few sentences and redirect members to an offsite blog or website to see the rest of the post. Please post it here instead. You may link back to the original post on your site, but you should have the entire article/translation/etc in the community post itself as well.
(faith, destiny, love)

From left to right: Mithra Jin, Tablo & DJ Tukutz

COMPOSED of three members, Tablo, Mithra and DJ Tukutz, Epik High is a hip-hop group with a perfect format of two MCs and one DJ. Their music is known to be as lyrical as a piece of literature and at the same time very witty and paradoxical. All three members of the band are singers and song-writers; starting with composing melodies, the members are all capable of writing lyrics and song arrangements.

Epik High was relatively unknown to Koreans in the beginning of its career due to hip-hop music's lack of popularity in Korea. Their success began with the release of their second album, titled "High Society". Upon the success of their third album, "Swan Songs", released in late 2005, Epik High has become one of the most popular hip-hop figures in Korea. Their fourth album, "Remapping the Human Soul", released in early 2007 has shown a very different music style from their previous albums, with the members deciding to head towards a 'no genre, just music' style. Their fifth album entitled "Pieces, Part One" was released in April of 2008. The album was leaked over the internet, however, this did not impede the success of the album when it was released.

Epik High never fails to capture the attention of the fans, whether it be for the creative and genuine lyrics or their explicit music videos (which, in some cases, have been banned from Korean television), they are a group that shouldn't be missed.
