Naomi participated in a high school youth festival held in Cheonan in 2001 and won the grand prize. Lee Young Hyun, of Korea’s talented music group Big Mama, recognized Naomi’s outstanding singing abilities and helped her as a dependable teacher. After seven years of long and bitter practice, she released her catchy ballad “사랑을 잃다 (Losing Love)” in November 2007. The arrangement to “Losing Love” is the same as Jessica Simpson’s “When You Told Me You Loved Me,” as the style of the song suited Naomi, being able to show off her emotional vocals.The song topped various online charts upon its release. She participated in SBS’s Power FM “Haha Ten Ten Club” Corner Battle with new rookie artists in a showdown with three consecutive wins. She was even noted for her 4 octave vocal.

With the “Price of Ballad” Sung Shi Kyung, Naomi participated in the first part of the Rhapsody, The Soul of Sound single. Other artists who had participated in it were Bobby Kim, Son Ho Young, Drunken Tiger, Lim Hyung Joo, Lee Eun Mi, and Yoon Mi Rae. Naomi has been a guest singer at one of Wheesung‘s concert as well. Furthermore, she is part of a charity called Compassion Band/Compassion Korea with various artists like Je-A of Brown Eyed Girls, Hwangbo, Ricky Kim, Joo Chan Yang, Park Chan, Jung Jae Yoon and Shin Ae Ra. Naomi has collaborated with other artists like L.E.O. and EZ-Life. She has also participated in many OSTs like “Hero“, “Obstetrics and Gynecology“, “Road No. 1“, “Rebirth-NEXT“, and “Suspicious Family” as an artist as well as a lyricist.

Naomi just released a new single “The Red” with the title track being of the same name. It is a jazzy ballad song showcasing her strong unique vocals. Hopefully she will be able to do promotions for the new song.

“Under the Radar” is a special monthly column where underrated Korean artists are featured. Artists are chosen based on a few criteria like popularity, activeness, and availability of information.
The rotation goes as: male solo, female solo, male group, female group and mixed group. If a certain month has five Saturdays, two artists will be featured. If so, the first artist is a veteran artist (debuting at least one year or more) and then follows a rookie artist (debuting less than a year.) Under some circumstances (i.e. it becomes too difficult to find an artist under these criteria), the rotation is subject to change without notice.
For questions, more information or suggestions relating to “Under the Radar” articles and artists, feel free to PM me.
