About 10CM

The folk-pop duo 10cm found fame in South Korea with a sweet, lilting sound inspired by American singer-songwriter Jason Mraz. • The group was founded by high school buddies Kwon Jung Yeol (vocals, djembe) and Yoon Cheol Jong (guitar). The name 10cm references the height difference between the two. • 10cm broke through with the 2010 single "Americano," a love letter to the titular caffeinated beverage. They followed that with hits like 2011's "Hug Me” and 2012's "Sorrow." • The band is notable for its use of djembe, a type of West African drum. • 10cm’s sense of humor is evident in their super-straightforward album titles: 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0. They also released the EPs The First EP and The Second EP. • Yoon Cheol-jong quit the band in 2017 for health reasons, leaving Kwon Jung-yeol to carry the 10cm banner as a solo artist.
