PH-1 Lands in LA: PH-1 is the stage name of Korean-American rapper Park Jun-won, signed to Jay Park’s H1GHR MUSIC label. According to the press blurb, “the three keywords he pursues in his music are truth, positivity, and experience,” which is reflected in his work. See for yourself.
While announcing his world tour, a press release read, “Inspired by his faith, Korean American rapper pH-1 writes honest, uplifting songs he hopes listeners will find relatable. Born Park Jun-won in South Korea, pH-1 moved with his parents to Long Island, New York, when he was 12. He later studied biology at Boston College with plans to be a dentist. At this point, music was a hobby—and a passion. In 2016, while working as a web developer, he was invited by a friend to perform in Korea.”
“In 2016, while working as a web developer, he was invited by a friend to perform in Korea. This led to a deal with Korean American rapper Jay Park’s H1GHR MUSIC label. After relocating to South Korea, Park issued the 2017 EP The Island Kid. Led by the hit single “Like Me,” Park’s 2019 debut album, HALO, hit No. 21 on the South Korean charts. He returned the following year with X, another Top 30 hit. He has appeared on his label’s 2020 H1GHR : RED TAPE and H1GHR : BLUE TAPE compilation tapes, which earned three Korean Hip-Hop Awards nominations.”
