A lot of you has been wondering who is this guy tagging along with RP. Is he a new member? How did he get to work with them? (and also “Who is he, he is cute~~” hahaha) so we decided to try to and clear up things a bit for you all.
First of all, Enik is not a member of RP, he is only helping during this promotion that’s why he does not appear in all interviews/radio shows etc.
The main reason for him being there is because he is helping James out in learning how to use programming and keyboard during performances as well as supporting RP in getting used to new formation.
But who is Enik?
He is multi-talented. With RP, he does producing and DJing but his list of his skills do not end here. He is also a vocalist and can play the piano, guitar, drums, violin… He also does producing and has worked with big names in the music industry like John Feldmann (producer of The Used, Hilary Duff, 5 Seconds of Summer), Mark Maxwell (Millionaires , Boys Like Girls, Call The Cops), Ian Kirkpatrick (Call the Cops), Mark Needham (The Killers, Neon Trees, Sick Puppies, Cobra Starship).
And he even has an art/design degree!
You’ve probably noticed already that he knows no Korean – it is because he has Taiwanese roots. Most likely he ended up doing things in Korea because of his friends and bandmates. He even recorded a song in Chinese! Check it here.
Currently he is in two bands.
Electro Pop band formed in 2010. More info here
And here is their newest MV
This new project by Enik started in 2015. They are supposed to release their debut album in 2016 so we should all look forward.
1st Single (MV Directed and produced by Enik himself)
He also performed with AZIATIX so he knows producer Jae Chong as well.
And how does he know RP?
Friendship between him and James goes back to LA times. They also met up when Enik was in Seoul in 2012.
It was mentioned in Kpoppin that whole RP used to be fans of Enik’s 1st band – Burning Tree Project – along with the fact that his mom and Moon’s mom know each other.
One more fact worth saying is that RP performed on the same festival as him in 2013. He was DJing for AZIATIX on Supersonic, while RP had their debut concert on the same day, same place (different stage though). Another fun fact but that’s sort of different story – Jae Chong and Min Oh who directed Run Away MV were also there since they both worked with AZIATIX.
