If you stayed up to watch last night’s closing ceremony, you witnessed a magical performance by South Korean singer Lee Seung-Chul. He took the stage with three other musical stars: soprano Jo Sumi, pianist Yang Bang Eon and jazz vocalist Na Yoon Sun. This quartet of amazing talent represented South Korea – the country that will host the 2018 Winter Olympics – and sang the nation’s popular folk song “Arirang” to a crowd of over 100,000 in the stadium and an international audience of over one billion viewers.
Prior to releasing eleven albums as a solo artist since 1989, Lee Seung-Chul (also spelled Cheol) was the lead singer with heavy metal group Boohwal.
Lee Seung-Chul wears Westone custom in-ear monitors and it appears from the photo above that he sported a black pair in Sochi. He’s also worn Westone IEMs with quite a bit of bling, as you’ll see in the videos below:
