Singer Kim Jong Min still has the K-pop power after a two year and three month hiatus.

Kim was seen ranking at No. 8 on China's popular music video site Yinweitai with his third solo single album titled "Live It Run It," according to the Korean publication Osen Entertainment.

The music video for his single brings fans back to the days when Kim Jong Min was even bigger than he is now. The singer is seen wearing his signature workout gear, and garnering laughs from his audience with his friend Chun Myunghoon and comedienne Ahn Youngmi, who both made cameo appearances in the music video.

As Kim Jong Min always does, the singer has put his name on another viral dance move. The "Live It" dance requires the dancer to move their shoulders to the beat as they move their thumbs left and right.

Kim Jong Min has been active in the K-pop industry for 14 years now, debuting back in 2000 as a member of the band Koyote. He is the male lead singer as well as the leader of the group.

Before making his debut as a singer, Kim was a backup dancer for various Korean artists, including Uhm Jung Hwa, Lee Jung Hyun, Kim Wan Sun and more. He was also on the dance team "Friends" for five years, which explains why the singer continues to make his fans go wild with his addictive dance moves.

Aside from his musical endeavors, Kim is known for his appearance on countless popular variety shows in Korea and has actually gone on to win the Best Entertainer Award at the KBS Entertainment Awards back in 2006, according to the website Naver.com.

Kim's time in the entertainment industry didn't come without hardships. When Kim Jong Min returned from his mandatory military service, his return to the variety television scene wasn't welcomed by everyone, with many people even signing petitions to get him off the series "1 Night 2 Days."

Kim has been known within the Korean entertainment industry for his determination and resilience, eventually gaining recognition as an artist again for his first solo single "Oppa Find Strength" in 2011.
