Group Name: JJCC (제이제이씨씨)

Members: Prince Mak, Eddy, Sanchung, E.co, Simba

Company: The Jackie Chan Group Korea

Profile: This is a very new group formed, yes, by Jackie Chan. Their name, “JJCC,” stands for Jackie Chan and Joint Culture. Prince Mak is actually Chinese-Australian and Eddy is Korean-American, and the rest are South Korean. The reason I’m making them the K-pop Artist of the Week is because I saw them live this weekend in Hongdae, Seoul. Because they’re a newer group and not very well known yet, they’ve been doing guerrilla concerts on the streets of Hongdae every weekend this month. I didn’t know the group before going to the concert, and I wouldn’t say they’re my favorite; still, it was fun to see a live performance in a more intimate setting like this. Also, it was nice because the two English-speaking members of the group were able to translate for the foreigner audience.

Unfortunately, I did not take video of the concert because my phone was dying, but here are the music videos they have released (they performed all of these songs at the concert).
