I’m pretty sure anyone who’s into K-pop will know the song, “Hawaiian Couple” by Humming Urban Stereo. Just listen to it — you’ll know what I mean.

This song was the song that introduced Humming Urban Stereo to the public. It was featured in one of the most popular romantic comedy films of 2007 called “My Love” and made Humming Urban Stereo a name for itself in the mainstream.

Humming Urban Stereo may sound like a band, but it really isn’t. Humming Urban Stereo is made up by just one person: Lee Jeereen. He is the one who is responsible for singing, writing, composing, and producing the music for Humming Urban Stereo. Occasionally, he does get help. He commonly uses female guest vocalists to participate in his albums. Shina-E and Humming Girl are the most frequent guests and sometimes mistaken as actual members of the group.

To give you a little taste of his style of music, this video of the song “Insomnia” will show what his music is all about. Humming Urban Stereo is considered to be a mix of genres: electronica/bassanova/acid jazz. HUS also experiments a lot with genres and Jeereen is also part of the group called Instant Romantic Floor with Lee Yong Hee (rapper) and Song Hwa Young (vocal). It’s pretty much music similar to Humming Urban Stereo, but with hip-hop elements mixed in.
