The music industry is in a state of shock. Shinsadong Tiger has been a musician and producer of hit songs for idol groups for nearly 20 years since the mid-2000s. He has still been participating in comebacks of idol groups such as TAN in addition to his agency’s girl group TRI.BE until the day of his death.

The day when the news of the deceased’s death was announced was also the day TRI.BE made a comeback on KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank” after a year-long hiatus, adding to the sadness. At the comeback showcase of their second mini-album “W.A.Y,” they used to share, “We often received feedback from producer Shinsadong Horang. If there was an unfamiliar pronunciation part, he recorded it himself and gave us advice,” introducing their specific work process. Who would have thought one morning the group would have to face the pain of letting the producer go.

Some speculative personal circumstances have been raised over the death of Shinsadong Tiger, but Internet users seem to focus more on regreting the life of the deceased, who made an era enjoyable with numerous music.

Shinsadong Tiger’s music career is as glamorous as it should be. Debuting in 2005, he made T-Arab’s “Bo Peep Bo Peep,” “Roly Poly,” 4Minute’s “Hot Issue,” “Muzik,” Beast’s “Shock,” “Fiction,” Apink’s “No No No,” “Remember,” EXID’s “Up and Down,” “DDD” and Momoland’s “Bboom Bboom.”
