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…
TRAX is a rock band created by SM Entertainment.
Now, TRAX used to have four members… which explains the name of this group. The name stands for “recording tracks”, but is also all their stage names together; “Typhoon of the Rose Attack on X-mas“. (Yeah, I don’t really get it either, haha). They were produced for awhile in Japan by a co-founder of X-Japan (Yoshiki)… which explains why they have covered an X-Japan song or two.
TRAX debuted in 2004 as a rock group. However, once the drummer, Rose, left the group in 2006, it turned into a more pop rock-type of thing.
Rose left the group to attend college, from what I hear. When he came back in 2009 as an actor, many people were surprised at how different his image had become. He now goes by the name No Minwoo and got a lot of attention in the drama Pasta and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.
Attack left the group in 2007. The public doesn’t know what he’s doing now.
