[Offstage] EL CAPITXN

We’re back with a new Offstage and this time we wanted to take a closer look at some of the work by EL CAPITXN. Even if the name doesn’t sound familiar you’ve undoubtedly listened to some of his work.


EL CAPITXN (or previously J. Pearl) also known as Jang Ji-Yeong started his career in the boygroup HISTORY. The group debuted in 2013 under LOEN Entertainment and disbanded in 2017. 

However, that’s not what I would like to focus on for this feature. I want to take a closer look at some of his composing and producing work. After the group disbanded, he joined Devine Channel, a group of producers and later on joined BigHit as an in-house producer. 

Here are some of my favorites.

EL CAPITXN has had a major impact on K-pop and I can’t wait to see what he does next.
