Pop jazz group Winterplay will hold a concert, "Non Stop Jazz Fever," at the LG Arts Center in Seoul on April 6.

The group is better known outside Korea, such as Hong Kong, other Chinese-speaking countries and Japan, for its combination of pop and jazz.

"Our music encompasses traditional jazz, pop jazz and Latin jazz, but our goal is to make popular music that can appeal to the ordinary public and that's our difference from other jazz groups," Lee Ju-han, leader of the group, said.

Winterplay made its debut in 2008, releasing the album "Choco Snowball." The group signed a contract with Universal Classics & Jazz Japan for worldwide distribution and released the album "Songs of Colored Love" in Japan in 2009.

Since 2009, the group has topped major jazz charts, including iTunes.
In 2011, its first album, "Sunshines," released in Hong Kong shot to the top spot on major charts including HMV, and won the Golden Disc award that year.

In December, it appeared on the popular Hong Kong television music show, "Jade Solid Gold (JSG)." Invited as a special guest, Winterplay performed its songs, "Yeoboseyo Baby" and "Shake it Up and Down," from its third album, "Two Fabulous Fools." The album rose to the top of the jazz charts in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan last year.
