Meanwhile, Yang Joon-il, a Korean American, debuted in the music scene in 1991 by releasing his single album “Rebecca.” He hit ‘Rebecca’ and ‘Ga Na Da Ra Ma Ba Sa.’ However, after hiding his whereabouts in 1992, he moved to the U.S. and worked as a businessman.
Since then, Yang made a surprise comeback in 2000 under the name “V2.”
He appeared on season 3 of JTBC’s “Two Yoo Project: Sugar Man,” a show focusing on searching for old-time stars, and performed “Rebecca,” “Dance with Me Miss,” and “Fantasy” on stage.

Yang Joon-il, in particular, is also called the “GD of the 90s” for his appearance and freedom that resemble G-Dragon.
