Superstar K7 is known as a South Korean talent show launched in 2009. This program easily grabbed the attention of viewers since they did a huge audition in South Korea. The aim of Superstar K7 is to find a new superstar which will be judged by the online voters and the text message voters.

Beginning on August 20th, 2015, on Mnet, each episode has elimination that will lead to only one winner. The winner of this program would receive 500,000,000 won. The chosen winner also will get the privilege to perform at the Mnet Asian Music Awards.

In his interview quoted by Allkpop, Kevin Oh admitted that Superstar K7 has changed his thoughts about music. Kevin said, “It’s changed my path altogether, or at least escalated it. I never viewed music as a visible career choice, so competing on the show has really opened up new doors for me. But all in all, thankfully, I think my heart for the music has remained unchanged.”

Kevin Oh came out as the winner and got to release his debut album Stardust on January 20th, 2017, under the label CJ E & M. The main song is of the synthpop-y genre but he has also said that he is not a musician that can be fit into one category in his interview for Allkpop.

Filmography

On his MTV Meets interview, Kevin Oh was asked about his everyday life. The first question was what was the last thing he had bought, to which he answered coffee because he could not live without coffee, and the last thing he bought online is sunscreen to protect from hot weather.

It gets really interesting when he gets asked about what he would want to be talented in, to which he answered with dancing. He felt that if he is talented in dancing it would make it easier for him to talk to girls.

Something fascinating happened when he was asked about the best compliment he ever received, which was from his brother who said, “I believe in you, and you are gonna be big one day.” It would seem that that stuck with him and it actually worked.

When he got asked about what is the thing that he finds most annoying, he answered that it is when his online food orders get canceled. The most laughable thing was when he said that he has even fallen asleep with ice cream all over his chest.

He talked about the different jobs he would have had in his life is an investment banker, as an analyst, seeing as he is qualified and even took the SATs but he ended up being a musician. That’s the definition of life, definitely.

The must-have items he chose are boots: in any season, he would feel more comfortable and secure. Yet, there is a secret he let us know, which is he is most proud of his long finger but he has ugly feet. He said that aesthetically and mechanically his feet seem to be somewhat flawed.
