After years as a singer-songwriter and a member of band High Syde in the underground music scene, Muzie became well known to the public after forming hip-hop dance music duo UV with comedian Yoo Sae-yoon in 2010. The duo’s 2012 hit “Itaewon Freedom,” featuring the JYP Entertainment founder Park Jin-young, went viral for its comical lyrics and upbeat retro melodies.

Muzie was also recently featured in the sixth season of Mnet’s hip-hop audition program “Show Me The Money” as one of the artists joining contender Hanhae’s final stage performance, along with Dynamic Duo and Chungha.
