Ji-In Cho (조지인)

This is another excellent guest post from our resident metalhead Elric —the Doc

Ji-In Cho (조지인, born December 30, 1976 in Leverkusen) is a German heavy metal singer of Korean descent. She has been the lead vocalist and pianist of the symphonic metal band Krypteria since December 2004.

At the age of six, Ji-In Cho started an extensive musical education including piano lessons. Later she studied music at the Cologne Music Academy and Theology at the University of Cologne.

In 2003, Cho was unwittingly registered by a friend to the German edition of the Fame Academy television show for musical talents. For the show she performed a cover version of Alanis Morissette’s song Ironic, which brought her into the German singles charts. In the end she became a member of the band Become One, that was formed by successful contestants of the show.

Since December 2004, Cho has been the lead singer of the band Krypteria, whose single Liberatio was used for a charity campaign in aid of the tsunami victims in Southeast Asia. The outcome was proceeds of 11 Million Euros from the sales of 150,000 singles. Liberatio reached the status of a gold record and held the No. 3 chart position for many weeks.

In 2012, Ji-In and Krypteria celebrated the birth of her first child, and took a break from live shows.

    She certainly does rock. She’d blow the pants off Miley Cyrus if she had them on in the first place.

    Pretty and talented. Yeah, agree with with Luke. She’s not photogenic.

    lol, Arf.

    Attractive but her face appears a tad broad for my tastes.

    I’ll pass on her as well. Sometimes this site should be named “Asian Women”.

    I’m going to completely honest…she doesn’t do it for me and neither does her music.

    The metal music genre may not be for everyone – there’s a reason that SiriusXM radio has hundreds of stations. And the same people who don’t like metal music will likely find her look offputting as well.

    But in the world of metal chick singers, this one is pretty hot. And unlike a lot of the other Asian Sirens on this site who claim to be singers, this one actually CAN sing.

    Oh yeah! Agree with TivoMan…I’m going with Siren as well.

    For being in a metal band she’s hasn’t gone overboard on extreme looks. She’s still got a very natural style, with beautiful black hair. I’m partial to Korean girls so she meets my criteria. What is the deal with Koreans in Deutschland?–I didn’t know there were any. She looks 100% Korean (not a BMW-Hyundai hybrid) so apparently both parents are Korean.

    I”m voting now for that as comment of the year, or at least 1st Quarter. Nice work!

    For some reason I thought Ji-In had been posted here before, but I’m sure I’m mistaken. Either way, I love the band and think her hotness is an added bonus. I can never get enough asian metal girls.
