Epaksa (이박사) is a Korean entertainer who has recently risen to super stardom in Japan. Born October 5, 1954 in Gyeonggi-do, his birth name is Yong-sug Lee (이용석). While growing up, his parents taught him pansori, which he has contemporized by incorporating modern, often Western, pop hooks. His reputation started to build based on his unique way of entertaining. While singing, he would imitate the sound of all of the instruments used in the prelude and interlude, and even the sound of the whistle used to gather the tourists. Read more about 이박사 on Last.fm.
