Kenzie (켄지) is a South Korean songwriter, composer, and producer signed under SM Entertainment.

Background

With aspirations to become a music producer and composer in her native South Korea, Kenzie moved to the United States as a young adult to further her studies. She graduated from Berklee College of Music in 1999 after majoring in music production and engineering.[1]

Although trained in classical music, Kenzie acquainted herself with the pop scene through the knowledge of the success of SM Entertainment groups such as H.O.T and S.E.S. While studying at Berklee, she set a goal of working with SM Entertainment, and was given the opportunity soon after returning home to South Korea.[1]
