Artist of the Week: Dr.Core 911

Here is the Artist of the Week! Posted on Wednesdays as something to get you through the rest of the week~

This week’s artist is…

Dr.Core 911

Dr.Core 911 (닥터코어 911)  is not Kpop…. it’s Krock.

The band got together in 1998, but actually debuted in 2000. I think their big break happened when they performed at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan in 1999.

People describe their music as nu-metal or rapcore.

Not much can be found about them on any English-language sites… and I’ve been searching for years. (Their official website has disappeared as well).

You see, soon after discovering H.O.T., I found Dr.Core 911 back in 2001. Thanks to p2p computer programs, I was able to download 3 or 4 songs from them. Whenever I listen to Dr.Core 911 it takes me back to the years I was a young teen; I just love them.

Even though it’s really hard to find anything about them in English, they seem to be fairly well-known… Lee Jung Hyun did a collaboration with them for the song “잘먹고 잘 살아라”  (Eat Well, Live Well). Actress Lee Ji Ah played bass guitar with them and helped them write a song called “Vampire Romance” as well. KARA did a rock version of Honey with them at Mnet 2009 too.

I’ll also note here that Devin Lee was in the mini-drama Rock Rock Rock as the character Shin Dae-Chul.
