이브, or Eve, is a Korean rock band. It is noted as one of the first native Korean rock bands to command the visual rock/glam style and is still active today, having seen several member/tone [with the exception of vocalist Seheon] changes as it always has been considered a project band. Eve was founded by Kim Seheon on Christmas Eve of 1997, from which the name is derived. With Seheon as main vocals and G.Gorilla installed as Eve’s secondary vocalist/composer, they released their aptly titled first album “Eve”, in August 1998 with which their debut title song, “Whenever You Feel” had caused a major sensation with its upbeat, punk sound. Their popularity would rise into May 1999 with a second album, “Eros”, when guitarist Park Woong and bassist Kim Gun would also be credited to the band. They would become official members a year later, in April 2000, when “Fly To You”, Eve’s third album, would be released. Eve would reach the peak of their popularity in April 2001 when their fourth album, “Swear” came out and seized the public with its balanced assortment of romantic ballads in addition to Eve’s usual rock songs. From then on, the band would change dramatically with the leave of all members but Seheon due to musical differences. Despite acting solo, however, he released a fifth album, “Ever” under Eve’s name on November 2002. Its songs are distinct from those of past Eve albums as it is without Eve’s harder elements from before, instead expressing a range of mellow to heartrending tracks such as “Leaning On Time”. By April 2003, two variations of Eve’s Greatest Hits would make it to shelves before another major change took place in Eve’s lifetime.
