Meet Steady A.K.A. Lee Hyun Kyung!
Steady may not technically be a rookie. He has been making music professionally for over 6 years. A little different style than when he started as part of a high school rock band or when he got noticed on Hidden Singer.
Steady debuted with 어느새 봄이었다 Love is Always Vivid on March 12th, 2017, but struggled finding a good agency.
He's just come out with a fantastic "comeback single", One Fine Day on palindrome day, February 02, 2020. (02-02-2020).
Q&A with our ROOKIE OF THE MONTH!
Why did you chose the stage name Steady?
"Steady !!! 꾸준하다 의 뜻 인데.
지금까지 음악활동한게 저는 정말 너무너무너무 ×1000000.... 힘든 상황들이 많았어요. 그럼에도 꾸준히 ... 끝까지 버텨보자 해서 스테디라는 이름으로 바꿨답니다 "
Steady !!! It is a reminder to keep steady.
So far, I've been doing music so much that I've had so many difficult situations. Nevertheless, I changed it to the name Steady because I wanted to stay on to the end "

My mother, she taught me English using a stick, she made sure that I studied hard.

Did you always want to be a singer?
As a child I wanted to be a dentist or a car mechanic. I didn’t have any time to do fun things as I was always studying but in my second year of high school I decided to pursue music and even had a rock band.
Who is your favourite group?
I really like Rascal Flatts, that surprises people right. Callum Scott and Steady (smile) are my favorite singers.
Anything you do before you go on stage?
I empty my mind and think pleasant thoughts
Favourite performance you’ve done?
My favorite performance was on 2020.2.27 at MCountdown. My least favorite was on Music Bank on 2.21 as the pink suit I had to wear was too big. It made me look like I was a little boy wearing his dad’s clothes.
What makes you feel the happiest?
When the fans listen to my song and like it.
Cheeseburgers any cheeseburger
What do you do to relieve stress?
I play Kart Rider (online game). I have even played against my fans before.

Yawn and go back to sleep ㅋㅋㅋ I usually wake up at the same time in the morning even if I stay up late.
Favourite girl group?
Umm that’s too difficult to answer... Twice, Red Velvet, 3YE, Dream Catcher... I can not list them all.
Do you regret giving up being a member of Got7?
I think I was not qualified enough.
What do you like doing on the weekends?
I usually rest. I like to sleep.
Count of Monte Cristo
Black, white, yellow, dark blue and grey.
What is your dream?
To get married and have a family. Yes, my best day will be after I have my wedding.
Steady has been recently promoting on music shows beginning in late February (he was not a fan of the pink suit for the MusicBank performance as he mentioned) and most recently on Show Champion last week. He is sad that there was no live audience as he was looking forward to singing in front of fans. He was also disappointed that he had to cancel his mini-concert so he put on a special Vlive concert that even his international fans could join in. He has been engaging with fans on his Vlive and Instagram live weekly and has even shown them some of his private photos and memories. Make sure to follow him to connect and find out more about his current and future projects.
UPDATE (October 2020):
Steady has self produced three new songs for release (one in October, November, and December). He has also started a website www.leehyunkyung.co.kr where he posts about new songs and fan meets. He will also have an auction for some of his personal items.
