HeeJun Brings the Love Back to Yahoo

October 18, 2013 10:50 AM ET

"American Idol" fans surely remember HeeJun Han, aka the Richie Law nemesis and class clown of Season 11, aka the man responsible for one of the greatest "Idol" moments ever when he stripped off (and ticked off Steven Tyler) during his performance of Billy Joel's "My Life." But there's more to HeeJun than such shenanigans, as his recent visit to Yahoo Music proved.

HeeJun (he goes by just a single name now, much like Cher, Madonna, or Sting) recently dropped by Yahoo to give his first public acoustic performance of his new single, "Bring the Love Back" (buy it on iTunes here), along with his first post-"Idol" video interview. While the usual hilarity ensued, he did show that he's serious about his career, as he talked about his new record label and forthcoming EP.

See HeeJun bring the love in the clips below!

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
