Kim Yeo-hee has been blowing up the tubes lately — the YouTubes, that is — with her iPhone-playing, singing, viral music videos, which have garnered millions of views over the past two months.
Her efforts have paid off in spades; the Wall Street Journal reports that this young lady just signed a record deal.
The 22-year old song stylist uses iPhone music apps running on several different iPhones simultaneously as her accompaniment. She is signed to Dreamhigh-Ent, based in Seoul, and will be releasing an album of her own music later this month.
Of course, we’ll also see some professionally produced videos along with this release.
Kim, who might be better known to her online fans as Applegirl002, told the Journal, “Since I bought my iPhone, I kept playing with it and experimenting with different apps and got totally hooked. I wanted to show people I can do playing and singing at the same time.”
Here’s an example of her artistry, a unique version of Lady Gaga’s Poker Face:
Kim went on to note that she’d love to work with Apple and also work outside Korea.
We’d love to see what she could do with an iPad — perhaps she should hook up with Rana June, the fabulous iPad DJ.
What do you think: Is this young woman a 15-minutes-of-famer with a trendy, gadgety gimmick, or does she have the the talent to be an international star?
