South Korean rapper BewhY rose to fame after he won a South Korean rap competition show called “Show Me the Money" in 2016. He was favored by the viewers for this versatile, charisma, and even his religious faith.

"I usually get inspiration when I’m at church, worshipping, praising, or reading the Bible," BewhY told allkpop.com before ending his U.S. Tour called "The Movie Star 2020 Tour,” which concluded this past Saturday in NYC.

"Before, I felt like his music was a little different from the direction I was heading towards. I felt like he had faith, but some of his aspects made me confused. I liked his music, of course, but it wasn’t until his ‘Yeezus’ album that I really started listening to Kanye’s music more seriously. When I compare my before and after believing in Jesus, my happiness, my thoughts, just so many things are different.”

Young Hoon Yoon, a representative from a faith-based ministry called "Big Puzzle Creative Community” argues that, the reason people can't criticize [BewhY] and his religious expressions is his overwhelming skill," told Christianity Daily. "With long and stable breaths he pours out an incredible amount of lyrics, with no mistakes. His rhymes and flow are brilliant. On top of all of that, his style is unique, and has charisma on stage. All of this makes him stand out from his competitors. And because of that, BewhY's faith confessions are attractive even to non-Christians."

BewhY amongst other ‘Christian musicians’ such as Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Tory Kelly, NF, Lecrae or Selena Gomez have been seen to publicly announce their faith on various media platforms on social media, during shows, and in their music as well.
