About Davichi

Davichi are a popular South Korean female vocal duo best known for releasing a series of sweeping, lushly orchestrated K-pop ballads, many of which topped the Gaon pop charts. Since debuting in 2008, singers Lee Hae-ri and Kang Min-kyung have maintained a consistent output of EPs, albums, singles, and various soundtrack appearances, the latter of which provided one of their biggest hits in the 2016 smash "This Love." Davichi celebrated their tenth anniversary together in 2018 with their third album, &10.

Lee and Kang came together as Davichi at the end of 2007, choosing a name that translates loosely to "shining over everything." Their first album, Amaranth, arrived in February 2008 and established their ballad-heavy approach, which also mixed in more upbeat R&B- and electronic-flavored pop tracks. They were a mild success at first, but with the release of the 2010 EP Innocence, they landed their first number one in the sprightly "Time, Please Stop." Over the next five years, Davichi became a major force in K-pop, charting six more number ones including songs like "Turtle," "The Letter," and the Verbal Jint-assisted "Be Warmed." They also kept up an elevated presence with songs featured on popular television shows like Big and Iris II. After their second album, Mystic Ballad, they left their original label, Core Contents Media, and briefly joined MMO Entertainment, where they landed another chart-topper in the single "Cry Again," from the 2015 EP Davichi Hug.

2016 brought another label switch, this time to B2M Entertainment, where Lee and Kang released their sixth EP, 50 X Half. That same year, Davichi's song "This Love" was featured on the soundtrack to the TV series Descendants of the Sun, and became a massive hit; not long after, they issued another popular soundtrack cut, "Forgetting You," from the series Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo. Celebrating ten successful years together, Lee and Kang released their third album, &10, in 2018, following it up a year later with the ballad "Unspoken Words."
