Beside that, Jang Jin-young made an appearance in another survival show that was aired on Mnet, which is Idol School. Still the same as before, Jang Jin-young was present as a vocal trainer and provided the best training for trainees who competed in the survival show. Not only Jang Jin-young, but also several other mentors and trainers appeared in Mnet’s Idol School, such as Super Junior’s Heechul, veteran actor Lee Soon-jae, S.E.S’s Bada, choreographer Park Jun-hee, Stephanie., Black Eyed Pilseung as a music producer, and Kim Il-jeong as an MC.

On August 3rd, 2018, this episode presented the appearance of the youngest team (rookie) consisting of Choo Won-hee, Baek Ji-hun, Park Sun, Kim Na-yeon, Lee Yoo-jung, Kim Eun-kyeol, Jung So-mi, and White Michelle.

The rookie team did a rehearsal first before appearing in the first debut test. But, unfortunately, their appearance received criticism from Jang Jin-young, the vocal trainer of SM Entertainment. “To be honest (your appearance) feels like an ordinary school festival. You still have a long way to go to become professionals,” Jang Jin-young said. Not only from Jang Jin-young, but the rookie team also received criticism from Stephanie. This time the criticism was aimed at each of the members specifically.

Instead of being sympathetic, netizens agreed with Jang Jin-young. Many thought that the participants of Idol School were not talented. As a result, they threw equally harsh criticism at them as well. “It’s like a high school talent search program,” commented a netter. “School failed,” added another netter. “Can’t sing, can’t dance, they are like thin, rocking dolls,” said another. “I was embarrassed when I saw them. Produce 101 trainees are much more talented,” concluded another.

“I didn’t even watch you appear from above, but I can see the top of your head (down). That means you’re not confident,” he said to Choo Won-hee. “Your expression is good but you stand too much. You act like the main star. You can’t expect to be in a group alone,” he criticized Michelle.

In addition, the presence of Goo Hye-sun, who has been a close friend for many years, was also a concern. Jang Jin-young was also overwhelmed by Goo Hye-sun and dating rumors in 2007. “Hye-sun and I have known each other for about 8 or 9 years as a close brother and sister, as a family. Since I was young, I have been doing the same thing, so I emphasized my friendship as a good younger brother and friend who talks about worries and difficult things to each other.”

Although it was a short time with unconventional performances and songs in 2002, the lead vocalist of Black Beat, Jang Jin-young, was a member of a large group that caused hot issues during that time. Jang Jin-young continued his contract with SM Entertainment even after Black Beat ended their activities as a group. He continued working in the music industry as a vocal trainer for junior stars such as Girls’ Generation and SHINee, not the protagonist on the stage. In addition, he was featured as a director and featured talented musicians such as DIA and A-mi.

Then he challenged himself again with his single “Another Time” (Hangul: 시간이 흐른 뒤) as one of the tracks of his 1st Extended Play Vocalist, which was released on July 13th, 2011. Jang Jin-young’s challenge continued without stopping. He always tried his best, but it was impossible to express his presence in the music market of infinite competition.

Jang Jin-young said, “Because I decided to live a music life, it is natural to continue without success or failure. I don’t know about other people, but I instinctively feel that I am always growing and perfecting myself. Otherwise, I cannot overcome failure.”

In this single album, Jang Jin-young showed an emotional head voice. They challenged the absolute pitch that black music masters, such as Wanya Morris and Brian McNight, have been pursuing. The lyrics were written by K.Will, Kim Dong-wook, and Dr.9’s Koo Ja-chang, who created a ballad and slow tempo song. The title song “Another Time”, where the piano sound of a lyrical atmosphere penetrates the heart, attracts attention as the pianist is Yoo Jung-hoon, who played the OST of the drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal.

Not only that, but Jang Jin-young also released other top singles after his solo debut, such as “Still In Love”, “Sunshine Love”, and there were also several K-Drama soundtracks released, such as The Fault Is Not Yours with “It’s Alright” and other songs.

In 2017, Jang Jin-young and The Barberettes collaborated for the 13th song of SM Station titled “Stranger’s Love”. In this project, fans can enjoy The Barberettes and Jang Jin-young singing a very powerful song. “Stranger’s Love” is a pop ballad about how someone becomes a stranger after the end of a relationship.

Jang Jin-young debuted with his group in the position of the lead vocalist, he answered as the reporter who asked about the thought of continuing Black Beat’s activities again, “I didn’t choose because only some of the Black Beat members were separated and active as they were no longer Black Beat. They are active in their respective fields now, but they are still in touch with all the members. On birthdays, we go to karaoke and dance to ‘Wings’ together.”

Black Beat members didn’t stop showing their existence in the entertainment world after their activities as a group were over. And it didn’t mean that the members’ careers also ended that way. “We are the only singers who became professional after our idol era was over. Hwang Sang-hoon and Shim Jae-won are also working as choreographers and directors at SM Entertainment. It’s a part that has pride in its own way,” Jang Jin-young said.


Well, that was all of the information about Black Beat’s Jang Jin-young who is currently in his own vocal training company, A-Top Company, in which many K-Pop groups have been undergoing training before debuting as idols. After debuting with Black Beat, Jang Jin-young had a great opportunity to become a vocal trainer under his former agency and became even more successful.
