Hometown: New York, NY
Kite Operations came to be in March of 2003, when singer/guitarists Joseph Kim and David Yang, of indie noise-rock group Theselah, realized that their band would have to be put on indefinite hold. Joe enlisted the help of childhood friend Jie Whoon Kang, a classically trained bassist who quickly learned the ways of rock bass. Jie in turn brought his friend Sung Shin, an energetic and hard-hitting drummer. Since forming, they have been rehearsing and recording in their home studio, and performing live regularly in the NYC area.
