Wooyoung to release solo album
According to JYP Entertainment yesterday, the 23-year-old singer is set to release an EP on July 8, setting a new precedent as a solo act among his group members.
“It’s true that Junsu has released up to four singles on his own, but he never promoted himself as a solo artist, meaning Wooyoung will become the first solo artist from the group to take to performing and promoting himself,” said a spokesperson from the band’s agency.
Ahead of the album’s release, a teaser video for the EP was uploaded online.
In the clip, six boys can be seen walking onto the stage with Wooyoung who is sporting a platinum blonde ’do in the center, while the others fade away.
“The symbolism behind the other members fading is to convey the message that they are supporting Wooyoung’s solo career,” said a representative from the agency.
JYP Entertainment said that the band is as excited as Wooyoung about his solo career and asked fans for their support.
