Fans eager to buy Cho Yong-pil’s album
From early morning, fans began to line up to purchase “Hello.”
One fan said he went to Youngpoong Bookstore in Jongno District, central Seoul, at 1 a.m., according to a local media report.
The bookstore distributed numbered tickets from 6:30 a.m. to prevent multiple purchases of the limited-edition signed album.
The excitement came after his prereleased song “Bounce” topped the local music charts last week, pushing Psy’s “Gentleman” to second place.
In addition, “Hello” has been quite successful, topping all nine local music charts.
To celebrate his return to the music scene, Cho held his first-ever showcase to meet with fans at Olympic Park in Songpa District, southern Seoul.
Cho will also have a solo concert from May 31 to June 2 at the same venue.
