1TYM is a 4-member hip-hop band scouted and trained by Yang Hyun-seok, a former member of Taeji and Boys. Danny and Teddy were Korean-Americans and Song Baek-kyung and Oh Jin-hwan were born and raised in Seoul.
Along with Jinusean, 1TYM grew as one of the major bands of YG Entertainment, a total entertainment production and management agency that Yang Hyun-seok opened in 1998. In November of 1998, 1TYM released their first album, “One Time for Your Mind.” The debut song “1TYM” produced by Perry and Q were ranked on top of various music charts. In the end of the year, the band won an award as the best rookie of the year with the song. In April, 2000, 1TYM released their 2nd album. The band stood on stardom with songs like “Only Love” and “Qwaejin Ching Ching.” Since releasing the 2nd album, the members of the band began to show their talents in songwriting and producing. In particular, Song Baek-kyung and Teddy participated greatly in the making of various songs for the band. The third album by the band was released in December of 2001. All of the songs in the album entitled “Third time fo yo’ mind” was written and produced by Teddy. The band continued their performing career together until 2003 when they released 4th album, “Once N 4 All.” In 2004, one of the members, Taebin, debuted as a solo singer with an album entitled “Taebin of 1TYM.” However, the solo debut of Taebin didn’t mean the breaking up of the band. In 2005, all the members go together again to release 1TYM’s 5th album, “One Way.”
