SG Wannabe (SG 워너비) (the SG representing Simon and Garfunkel) is a South Korean trio that debuted in 2004. Their first song, “Timeless”, quickly propelled the group to popularity and their album topped the charts. Unlike other groups, SG Wannabe decided to abstain from promoting their music initially, declining to appear on music shows or in their own videos; the group has stated that they wish their audience will care more about the music, rather than their appearance.

On April 11, 2006, the trio released their third album, called The 3rd Masterpiece. Just like what they did in the second album (the music video had two parts; the first part was with the song “Crime and Punishment” (죄와벌), while the second part was with the song “As We Live” (살다가)), their third album also contained two-part music videos. The first part was with their new title song, “Partner for Life” (내 사람) starring Shinhwa's Kim Dong Wan and also featuring Jeong So-Young, and the second part was released with “Slowpoke” (느림보). Once again, the album manage to chart high, reaching #1 on numerous charts. On November 18, 2006, they released a greatest hits compilation entitled SG Wannabe Best Album - The Precious History. It was a collection of their favorite songs from the past three albums and also included three new songs. They also released a music video for those songs which was called “Song of Love(사랑가) featuring Vibe”, “Even If I Could See You (그저 바라볼 수만 있어도)”, and “Ordinary People” featuring Hoo Ni-Hoon, Min Kyung-Hoon, Jang Hye-Jin.However, despite having high sales and topping the charts, they did not win another, though the group was nominated daesang. In January 2007, the group took part in the Hallyu Festival in Osaka which also featured Jun Jin and Lee Min-woo of Shinhwa, Kangta of H.O.T and actor Song Seung-heon at the Osaka Dome. Their highly anticipated 4th album, “The Sentimental Chord”, was released on April 6, 2007, almost a year after their 3rd album. Again, they amazed the audience with their new title song “Arirang” (아리랑), which had the classic instruments of Korea playing as the background music. With the release of their 4th album and their title song, they went as the #1 in the Bugs Chart as well as the Korea monthly chart. The album was also number one on the “Top 20 Album Sales (May 2007)” with 44,618 copies sold in May and 125,450 sold altogether. They also released two special albums, “SG Wanna Be+” and “Story In New York.” Both the special album manage to be successful as well, continuing SG Wannabe's popularity and success. Towards the end of the year, SG Wannabe was awarded their second daesang from the Golden Disk Awards, reigning as the top artist of the year. Selling almost 200,000 copies, The Sentimental Chord was the best-selling album of 2007 in Korea.
