All about Seoul Stars Virtual K-Pop Artist, Yuna
As we have seen with many NFT projects, a good story forms a project’s backbone, and is one of the crucial factors that attracts users to the project. Thus, Seoul Stars too has given Yuna a compelling story.
According to the website, Yuna, who grew up in Seoul, Korea, is majoring in contemporary dancing. As a child, she used to train in traditional Korean dancing, while wearing the hanbok (traditional Korean dress). However, as she grew up, she moved to contemporary dancing.
When she was younger, she attended a Girls Generation concert, instilling in her a dream to become a famous K-Pop idol. Thus, she is usually found singing R&B music karaoke in Seoul’s Gangnam area. A fan of Blackpink and Aespa, she loves singing and clubbing.
All of Yuna’s songs are produced by Tommy Lee, a renowned music producer in Korea. Lee produces a variety of music genres including R&B, dance, and ballade. Moreover, he has worked with several famous idols like Girls Generation, IU, EXO, f(x), Mamamoo, and TVXQ.
“The virtual artist is not confined by time and space,” he said. “[They are] also capable of producing infinite amount of content.”
