Kangin (Super Junior)

Kim Young Woon, better known by his stage name Kang In, is a Korean pop singer, actor, MC, presenter, and a member of the super boy band Super Junior. His name ‘Kang In’, meaning strong benevolence, was given to him to complement his personality. Currently, Kang In will not be joining Super Junior for their fourth album. Kangin officially enlisted and began his two-year military service on July 5, 2010.

Kang In was scouted by a talent agent and was recommended to sign up for SM Entertainment’s talent competitions. In 2002, Kang In won first place on the fourth annual SM Youth Best Contest and won the best outward appearance award and signed a contract with SM Entertainment.

Along with Hero, U-Know, and future bandmate Heechul, SM Entertainment placed them in a small project music group called Four Seasons, with each of the four members representing the four seasons of the year. The prospective group never came through; both Hero and U-Know were chosen to join another all-male singing group TVXQ, which debuted in December 2003. With two members gone, the idea of Four Seasons dropped. Kang In and Heechul were then placed in Super Junior along with ten other trainees under the same company. This project group managed through well, and they debuted two years later on November 6, 2005, under the name Super Junior 05, the first generation of Super Junior.

In early 2006, SM Entertainment was beginning to recruit new members for the next Super Junior generation, Super Junior 06, with Kang In still as an undergraduate member of Super Junior. However, plans changed when the company added in a thirteenth member Kyuhyun, and the company declared a halt in forming future Super Junior generations. The group dropped the suffix "05″ and became officially credited as Super Junior. The re-polished group hit it big after they released their first CD single "U" the following summer in 2006, which became Super Junior’s most successful single in the music charts until the release of "Sorry, Sorry" in March 2009.

During his career with Super Junior, Kang In was put into two subgroups, smaller groups that are branched off of the larger Super Junior group. In February 2007, he was placed in the trot-singing Super Junior-T. A year later, he became a member of Super Junior-Happy.
