When I was high school student my church choir did lots of a cappella numbers. In the contemporary point of view - I joined mixed a cappella group at 2001.

In 2003, I wanted to be connected with foreign a cappella singers and fans. In Korea, we couldn't get much information or CDs at that time. I gathered information from CASA and translated to Korean. It was the first step.
