Se7en (born Choi Dong-Wook, November 9, 1984) is a South Korean pop/R&B singer.
He began training under a management agency YG Entertainment at the age of fifteen. After four years of training in voice and dance, he made his debut in 2003 and became successful throughout Asia.
Much of his career is composed of constant promotions for his songs through live performances on TV, radio shows, and occasionally, concerts. He also began learning Japanese in preparation for his promotional activities for his Japan debut in 2005.
Se7en has traveled throughout Asia, particularly Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, and China. He has also performed a few times in the United States, specifically Los Angeles , New York City , and Washington DC.
In addition to performing, he has been featured on game shows in South Korea and Japan, and commercials for Samsung's Anycall, Baskin Robbins, Coca Cola, LG Telecom, Sprite and most recently, K-SWISS and KTF.
He held a total of three concerts for his "24/SE7EN" album promotion June 2006 in Seoul, South Korea. His popularity has earned him an award for the Most Popular Korean Singer in the MTV Asia Awards 2006 at Bangkok, Thailand, and the MTV Best Buzz Asia Award 2006.
On April 7, 2007, his 747 concert was held at Seoul's Olympic Park Stadium, which marks Se7en's last activity in Korea for 2007. He is currently working on his oversea activities in Japan and the United States. He has held another Japanese tour called '7rhythm' in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya in early July. According to his Japanese label, Nexstar Records, all of the 20,000 tickets for the concerts were sold out in a short amount of time. Se7en is currently preparing for his U.S. debut, which is scheduled soon this year in 2009.
American Debut
Se7en and YG Family have made an appearance on MTV K, followed by 3 concerts in Washington DC, New York City, and Los Angeles, to celebrate YG Family's 10th Anniversary and to help promote Se7en before his American debut. The MTV K documentary aired on December 11, 2006.
Se7en has been working with former CEO of LaFace Records, Mark Shimmel and Grammy-winner Rich Harrison and Richcraft producer Lionell Davis on his first American album. A new production team called Noize Trip, has also contributed some work. It was also reported that Teddy from 1TYM has produced a song for Se7en's American album and possibly will make more songs. Darkchild has also joined the team and produced songs for Se7en. It was also reported from Far East Movement's blog that they, as well as Three 6 Mafia will also participate in Se7en's upcoming English album.
Se7en began promoting his English songs through a U.S. album preview party tour with his first stop at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City on March 14 2008.Three of his U.S. album tracks were played at this preview party. He is currently holding other album preview parties across the U.S. and Canada.So far the songs that have been revealed and performed is "Girls" featuring Lil' Kim which will be his debut single, You Got Me Now featuring Three 6 Mafia, "Money Can't Buy Me Love"
Acting career
Se7en accepted the lead role for the Korean drama Goong S, a spinoff of the popular drama Goong. The first episode of Goong S premiered on January 10, 2007 on MBC; the average nationwide rating for the entire series was 9.7%, which was considerably lower than the ratings of its predecessor, Goong.
Despite the low ratings, Goong S was the most searched and rewatched drama online; it ranked higher than its competition: KBS2 Dal Ja's Spring and SBS Surgeon Bong Dal Hee. The drama has also gained a wide variety of support from international fans in the U.S., Thailand, Malaysia, Brazil, Australia, and Singapore.
Although he is aware that criticisms still remain, Se7en has taken note of those criticisms and is determined to continue acting in the near future. Se7en had said that even though the drama was not of much of a success, he does not ever regret accepting the role of his character in the drama. It even helped Se7en to sing with more emotion during performances. He also mentioned that he was thankful to have a chance to work with the drama crew and take his career to a new level by acting

Se7en - i love this guy, cred ca a fost printre primii j-singers pe care i-am ascultat. Eram obssesed dupa "Lalala" si "Hikari" si "Them Girls" or "Girls" e super, imi place mai mult varianta fara Lil Kim Razz
In concluzie: e genial baiatul si are o voce de admirat ^_^

dap dar sincer imi place mai mult cum canta in koreana.Cat despre videoul lui cu Lil`Kim nu prea imi place,adica nu este el acolo.Imi este dor de vechiul Se7en.Dupa cate am auzit de prin alte parti ca Se7en ar vrea sa renunte la cariera muzicala la varsta de 30 de ani Crying or Very sad .Ce tampenie.
