Cho Shin Sung, meaning Supernova in Korean, is a band made up of six good-looking and talented boys. They went through two and a half years of extensive vocal, dancing, and acting training. Their first album “Beautiful Stardust” featured a wide range of songs – from the powerful dance number “Hit” to the romantic and playful tune titled “Good-bye.” Their first album “Beautiful Stardust” has received lots of love from females in their teens and 20s, enough to send it straight up the charts just one week after its release. They followed up their debut success with a new digital single “2008 Love Song Choshinsung.” The “2008 Love Songs” project was participated by Korea’s most reputed romantic singers, including SG Wannabe, FT Island, Seeya and Shin Hye-sung. Choshinsung performed “Super Star” for the project album and also took part in the “Love Songs 2008 Premium Concert” held at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan 2008.

The band has not only been pretty popular in Korea, but in Japan too. They made their debut in the neighboring country in September of 2009. Three singles were released over three consecutive weeks – one of the singles being a remix version of their Korean single “Superstar”. Their first Japanese album was released about a month later.

A few months later, Supernova released their fourth Japanese single in January of 2010, not to mention they were guest performances at a concert in Bangkok. After focusing on other Asian countries, the group finally made their comeback in Korea in August with their mini-album “Time To Shine”

1.) Your name, what you are called, and/or alias? 

Ronnie Icon, although Ronnie Scholtes is my real name. 

2.) Where you are from, where you are active? 

I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm mostly active on Youtube. It's my way of being international. :) 

3.) What age did you start?

I started writing songs when I was about 10 years old, but I didn't go to music college until my 22nd. I started my Youtube channel early 2015.

4.) What's your inspiration? 

Anything K-pop, really. Before I found out about K-pop, I'd been drawn to American pop artists like Jesse McCartney, but also artists like Bjork. Then I came across K-pop and my entire field of reference changed. I first got into EXO, but gradually I started learning all about other artists as well.

5.) What's your style?

K-pop inspired songs, remixes and covers. I like to think that, as a European based, K-pop inspired artist, I blend a little of both worlds. An EDM inspired sound mixed with the pop music I now listen…
