The former lead vocalist of heavy metal band "Sinawe"" and Korean rock-ballad singer, Yim Jae-Bum, is visiting UC Berkeley for his old dream of spreading awareness of Korean Music to the western world.

Yim Jae-Bum is a popular Korean Rock Vocalist. He started out in 1986 as the lead vocalist for Sinawe, a heavy metal band. Sinawe represents the band that carried the very first recording of Yim Jaebum's raspy and husky voice, and that started the era of Korean Heavy Metal Music. It threw every debate about "First Heavy Metal Band" in Korea out the window. Yim Jaebum's name goes simultaneously with Sinawe and the song that made the beginning of the era's official announcement: "With the radio turned up high."

After recording with other Rock groups like "Asiana" and "Rock in Korea", he also released solo albums in 1991, 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2004. His voice was more leaned to the "soul" side and got a nick name that goes "Korean Michael Bolton". His voice got more polished into a contemporary pop fashion, but somehow still carrying the beauty and the dignity off the orginal metal version. Some of his biggest hit songs include "confession", "For you", "Wound Deeper than Love", and "Flying up".
