Sechs Kies′ Kim Jae Duk Joins H.O.T′s Tony An to Produce for Smash
The former rivals, Sechs Kies’ Kim Jae Duk and H.O.T’s Tony An, have come together for Smash’s comeback.
Though Sechs Kies and H.O.T had an intense rivalry in the 90s, Kim Jae Duk and Tony An, now best friends, are being credited as the joint producers of Smash’s recently-released second mini album, I’ll Protect You.
The group has been produced and maintained by Tony An since 2008 and even performed with Tony An as ‘Tony & Smash’ earlier this year. With the addition of Kim Jae Duk, Smash will have bragging rights in saying it has received the assistance of two first-generation idol group members.
Tony An reached out to Kim Jae Duk to ask for his help on the new mini album. The two worked together on the album’s track selection, vocal, rap, choreography and style as they gave their 10-years expertise and wisdom to the group.
The Smash members expressed their gratitude saying, “They are giving their know-how from their long career, as well as advising and guiding us in our group and individual practices. They are a healing and sturdy base to us.”
Smash released its album on November 8.
