  • Why is he called "SE7EN"? And is his name written as "SE7EN", "Se7en", "Seven"...?
  • According to Se7enth Heaven (a fan-made forum dedicated to him), "before his debut, his company have thought about the possible stage name (from letters to numbers, including 7) that would be suitable for Choi Dong Wook [which is SE7EN's real name]. While eating at a restaurant with YG [his boss/producer], they noticed there were 7 pieces of radish kimchi on his plate. So, they confirmed Se7en's name from that."

    As for how his name is officially written...I usually see it written as "Se7en" outside of Japan. But in Japan, they usually write it in all caps, and since my site is dedicated to his Japanese music, I decided to write his name in caps. (^^;) The spelling is what really counts, so at least his name is spelled the same way, right? Just remember that there is NO letter "v" in his name; the number "7" is used instead.

    By the way, you can learn more about SE7EN in this FAQ on Se7enth Heaven.

  • Is he single or married?
  • SE7EN isn't married...but I'm not sure if he's dating anyone.

  • I thought he was Korean. Why is he on this site?
  • SE7EN is a Korean artist, but he's also made music in Japan. And since his Japanese music was produced by Dai Nagao, I've put him on this site too. =)

  • Why aren't his Korean and American releases on this site?
  • I'm only focusing on music that Dai Nagao (or other members of Do As Infinity) collaborated on with him. But since I like SE7EN, I might add his other releases to this site someday.

  • Do you know when he'll release another Japanese CD?
  • I'm not sure. I've heard that sometime this year (or next year) he'll release more Korean music, but nothing's been said about his Japanese music.

    Right now, SE7EN is in the USA trying to break into the American music market (he's already released one song, "Girls" ? and Lil' Kim [a famous American rapper] is in the video!). I'm not sure how his American debut is going, but I know Lil' Kim is on Dancing With The Stars (a popular celebrity dance show/competition)...so if she mentions SE7EN on the show -- or at least mentions her collaboration with him -- it might make him more popular.

  • Who's the female rapper in his song, "what u want?"
  • I don't know...and I don't even know where to find her rap lyrics at. ;_;

    If you can help, please email me!!

  • Where can I buy SE7EN merchandise?
  • There are tons of online stores that sell his merchandise. But I highly recommend YesAsia (their prices are low, their selection is large, and the shipping costs are low for people outside of Asia). You can also try CDJapan, Amazon and iTunes. If you want used items, there's an area in DAIForum called Aisle 3. Be sure to check it out! You can also go to eBay for used merchandise.

  • Where can I download [insert song here]?
  • I highly recommend you buy his CDs. However, you can sample their songs (and download several songs, in low-quality WMA format) on this site.

  • Why don't you have a picture gallery here?
  • There's no need for me to offer pictures. There's already a TON of other sites doing this. Not to mention there's Google Images. ^^

    However, I do post some pictures here (mostly CD covers and profile pictures). And there are a few "hard-to-find" photos, such as the credits page[s] from each CD.

  • Why do you post WMAs on this site?
  • I want people to hear the full songs, because sometimes the MP3 samples don't capture the beauty of the full song.

    But I also want people to buy the actual CDs, which is why:

    1. I will never post every song he's made.
    2. I will never post new songs.
    3. I only post low-quality songs on the site. WMAs sound "less fuzzy" than low-quality MP3s (and I do want you to hear the song as best as possible). Plus WMAs are usually a bit smaller in size, which is why I use this format.
    4. I know people might not have a lot of money, so I mentioned a lot of low-cost shopping methods...including YesAsia and used CD sites (like eBay).
    I buy CDs, and you should too. We need to support these artists; otherwise they won't continue to make music. Amasia Landscape and I-lulu/KATA-KANA might still be active if people bought their music more -- and I'd hate for that to happen to SE7EN and everyone else on this site.
