Introduction to Hoody

Kim Hyun-jung (김현정) better known as Hoody (후디), is a South Korean singer-songwriter under Jay Park’s label AOMG. She debuted with the single “My Ride” on September 24, 2013, and debuted in the same year as a member of the all-female underground hip-hop crew Amourette (AMRT), and left the group a bit later as she felt that it was too difficult to adapt as a member of a hip-hop group.

Hoody went on to be the first female artist to be signed under AOMG in 2015, after being approached by the founder Jay Park himself.

Hoody’s stage name comes from the article of clothing ; the hoodie. During SBS Power FM’s “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show” on September 7, 2017, she revealed the backstory behind the name. “I usually wear a lot of hoodies and so I chose Hoody as my stage name.” She continued, “I was in a hip hop club when I was in college. Ja Mezz from ‘Show Me the Money’ joined in the same year as me, and told me that it would be good if I had a rap name, too. I was wearing a hoodie at the time so I just chose Hoody.”

In that same interview, she talked about her joining AOMG. “The agency’s environment is very small and free. It kind of feels like a family. It’s very laid back vibe than a company vibe.”

The extremely talented singer-songwriter writes all of her own lyrics and is actively involved in producing and arranging her songs as well.

Hoody is quite known for her unique and captivating vocals in the industry, which she has successfully shown off through her music and various collaborations with fellow labelmates Jay Park, Gray, Loco and other highly celebrated R&B artists like Crush, Jinbo & George both in and outside of Korea.

Her debut full-length album “Departure” dropped on October 29, 2019, and was well-recieved by fans and critics alike due to its unique, fresh sound, exceptional lyrics and catchy melodies.

Hoody has captivated many hearts across the world for her take of music and her likeable personality.
