February release for Kim’s second solo album
Kim Jae-joong, a member of the K-pop trio JYJ, will release a second 10-track solo album in February, according to his agency, C-JeS Entertainment.
Although the singer is serving his mandatory military duties, he finished recording all of the songs before he joined the Army in March.
The solo album is being released two years and four months after his previous solo album, “WWW,” which came out in October 2013.
“The new album contains songs written by the singer himself, and others are composed by international composers,” a promoter for the 29-year-old singer at C-JeS said. “This album has a lot more rock-inspired pop music compared to the previous album.”
Kim’s first solo album topped iTunes charts in 12 different countries when it was released.
Kim is currently serving as a military band soldier and has appeared in concerts for soldiers several times. But the singer came under fire for fumbling the lyrics of the national anthem at a baseball game and for attaching the national flag patch to his uniform upside down at the awards ceremony.
