Iconiq (true name Ayumi Itou, also called Ayumi Lee) is a Korean-Japanese pop designer who were able to accomplish a tricky feat of charting in both these countries, although with less bang than BoA, the main Korea/Japan superstar. Created in 1984 right into a category of Japanese Koreans, Itou was raised in Japan but started her profession in Korea, becoming scouted at a display put on from the Korean son music group H.O.T. display and proceeding to be the leader from the recently founded girl music group Sugars in 2002 beneath the name Ah Yoo Mee. Sugars never accomplished big stardom and had been placed on hiatus in 2006; Itou after that released two singles, including a cover from the theme music of the favorite franchise Cutie Honey. When the disbandment of Glucose was verified, Itou was agreed upon by S.M. Entertainment in 2007 as Ah Yoo Mee, but didn’t make very much headway over the label: her participation was limited by a single expression documented for the 2007 Summer months SMTown compilation. In 2008, she still left Korea for Japan, putting your signature on with Avex and debuting as an celebrity; she had little roles in a number of doramas as well as the business lead component in the Kafu no Machiwabite film. However in 2009 she came back to music, debuting on Tempo Zone beneath the name Iconiq. Her initial Japanese one, “I’m Adoring You,” was documented with Atsushi of Exile (obtainable exclusively over the ringtone download provider Chaku-Uta), and this year 2010 the digital one “Transformation Myself” as well as the album from the same name implemented. The full-length, which also highlighted Verbal from m-flo and sported a Madonna cover, charted at number 3 and marketed 60,000 copies.
