Buzz is an all-male Korean pop music band. Their music largely consists of both plaintive rock-ballads such as "Coward" and moderately melodic, driving rock songs such as "Leaving on a Journey to Me". All of their songs are sung in Korean with a smattering of English phrases, as is common in Korean pop music.
Their song "Gliding" was used as the Korean opening to the popular Japanese anime, Naruto. Their song "Fighting Spirit" was also used as another Korean opening to Naruto.
In July 2007 the band officially went on hiatus as four of the band members began to, or had already begun to serve the 26 month mandatory service in the South Korean Army required of all South Korean men. Min Kyung Hoon, the vocalist of the group will proceed in a solo career while the anticipated fourth album is due to be completed once the band complete their duties. A new vocalist will be auditioned at a later stage.
