Yang Seung-ho (양승호; born October 16, 1987),[1] is a South Korean idol singer, dancer, actor, model and the leader of Korean male group MBLAQ, currently active in South Korea under J. Tune Camp.



When Yang was young, Yang won a couple of singing contests that he joined. In addition, Yang has had a television appearance in Sharp 1 (반올림1; Banolim 1) as a cameo in between 2003 and 2005. He was also featured in its soundtrack entitled "Gray Sky" by Lee Hyun-jung.


After training under Rain and J. Tune Entertainment, Yang became a member of South Korean quintet male group MBLAQ, serving as their leader, lead dancer and vocalist. The group made their unofficial debut on October 9, 2009 and officially debut on October 15, 2009 during Rain's Legend of Rainism concert, where they performed various songs from their then-unreleased single album Just BLAQ. Their performance that day was met with praise, with many concert spectators and fans considering them to be the next TVXQ.[2][3]

MBLAQ's first single, "Oh Yeah", was released to the public through a music video on October 14, 2009 together with their debut single album, Just BLAQ.[4] Afterwards, they had their broadcast debut on Mnet's M! Countdown, performing their single.[5] The group also made their Japanese debut on May 3, 2011. They held an event at the Kanagawa Lazona Kawasaki Plaza, which gathered a reported 10,000 fans. A day later, on May 4, they released their first Japanese album Your Luv. The album immediately reached first position at the Oricon Daily Charts, selling more that 11,000 copies.[6][7]

The group has starred in various South Korean variety shows as guests. They also had their own variety shows such as Mnet's MBLAQ - The Art of Seduction, MBC's MBLAQ's Idol Army, Mnet's Sesame Player and KBS's Hello Baby Season 5.

Since their debut, MBLAQ has released three single albums, six extended play albums, one studio album, one repackaged studio album, and two EPs in Korean. They also released one compilation album, four singles and four DVDs in Japanese.

His fanclub is named: Seungholic

Other activities

Besides the group activities, Yang also guests on various television shows as a solo artist as well. These include Super Junior Miracle, Idol Maknae Rebellion, Kara Bakery, and, Running Man among others.

Personal life

Yang Seung-ho was born on October 16, 1987 in Seoul. His family consists of a mother, a father, and a younger brother named Yang Seung-hoon. When he was young, his family moved to Anyang, Gyeonggi and was raised there. He attended Anyang High School of Arts, where he became the school captain and class president during that time. After high school, he enrolled at the Sejong University of Film Arts but left afterwards due to MBLAQ's busy schedule. He now attends at the Kyung Hee Cyber University.[8]

Seungho is the only member in the group who uses his real name; his stage name was originally intended to be "Mir" but he rejected it.[citation needed] His hobbies include playing the guitar and piano (for which MBLAQ's fans gave him the nickname "Yang Chopin"). Other hobbies include playing soccer, beatboxing, break dancing, performing card tricks, knitting, and mending objects.[citation needed] Yang had also taken classes in gymnastics, judo, and hapkido, whilst his favorite genre of music is electronic.[citation needed]

Seungho and Soyeon from T-ara attended the same high school and are known to be good friends.[citation needed] He also knew Park Gyuri from Kara and Jinon from F.Cuz in his junior years.[citation needed]
