Why is this called 7radishkimchi?

Before Se7en's debut, his company have thought about the possible stage names (from letters to numbers, including 7) that would be suitable for Choi Dong Wook. Still undecided on the name, they went to eat at a restaurant with YG. On Dong Wook's plate, they noticed there were 7 pieces of radish kimchi. So, they confirmed Se7en’s name from that event~

Although Se7en's parents were opposed to the idea of having him to become a singer, Se7en did not have any intention to give up on his dream. During the 4 long years of training in YG Entertainment, he had to mop the studio floors and practice singing late at night. At the age 19, all of his hard work eventually paid off with his first Korean album, "Just Listen". He has never lipsynced during performances and is a firm believer that artists have an obligation to sing live. Se7en's ever growing popularity still continues today that attracts many international fans who take great notice of his singing, dancing, style and charming personality.

Not only he has debuted in Korea and Japan, he will be expected to debut in the America with Rich Harrison (produced songs for Usher, Beyonce, Amerie, etc.) as his guide. He also has starred in his first acting role in the Korean drama, Goong S (Palace S).
