New Unbalance could be a group which formed in 2001, this band consisted of Lee Jeong-gil as a drummer, Jeon Kyu-ho as a guitarist, Jina Ryu as bassist, Lee Min-kyung as keyboardist, and Ha Hyun-woo as a vocalist. At first, he met the drummer, Lee Jeong-gil, in Daejon, and so after a year, they made this band. But this band didn’t very last long within the music industry; a number of members soon announced they were resigning from it, like the keyboardist, Lee Min-kyung, in 2003.

This band was also referred to as the Compass of Music and it formed in 2003, with most of the identical members as New Unbalance, but with a replacement bassist, Park Chul-young, and therefore the keyboardist, Lee In-kyung.

On December 7, 2010, they released their first mini-album, “Tagtraume”, and released their second studio album, “Frame”, on November 26, 2014.
