The members of 8eight are: Baek Chan, Lee Hyun and Joo Hee. The band won the first edition of the Show Survival programme on MBC, which is an equivalent of American Idol. However, unlike the US counterpart, Show Survival’s participants were musicians that had already been active in the music scene and the show’s purpose was to bring their music to a wider audience.

8eight’s first album The First was released on September 8th, 2007, however their debut date is considered to be August 25th when they made their first appearance on MBC’s Music Core show.

In March 2008 they released their album Infinity and in June single I Love You with a guest appearance of SNSD’s Jessica. The band made a comeback in March 2009 and released their Golden Age album with another single following in June.

Their mini-album The Bridge was available in May 2010 and another self-titled mini-album hit stores in June 2011, with two singles released in between. The band has had many collaborations with stars such as Rainbow, 2AM, Lena Park, Baby Jin and many more. Lee Hyun has notably sang a duet with JYJ’s Junsu for the ‘Scent of a Woman’ drama.

The group’s name was inspired by the reverted number ‘8’ which looks like the symbol of infinity ‘∞’.
