Popular South Korean actor Jang Geun Suk's music act Team H is not a vanity project - it is a return to his roots.

He and his schoolmate Kurt Jung, who is now a DJ and a producer, started the act when they were in university. They released their third album, Driving To The Highway, this month.

The good-looking duo may have fans mistakenly thinking that the H in Team H stands for Hot. But they are really not so narcissistic.

In an e-mail interview with Life!, Jang, 26, reveals that the inspiration for the group's name is pretty simple.
