Kim Se-jeong to drop her new track 'Baby I Love U' on July 23
Singer and actor Kim Se-jeong will drop her new track “Baby I Love U” on July 23 at 6 p.m., according to Jellyfish Entertainment on Tuesday.
The track will be a “summery love song” and is a remake of Japanese singer TEE’s song of the same title. The song was also previously remade by Malaysian-Australian singer Che’Nelle and British band Mamas Gun.
Kim’s version will have a K-pop touch added by producing team Iconic Sounds, who have worked with a star-studded list of K-pop acts such as BoA, Girls’ Generation, Exo and NCT.
Kim debuted as a member of girl group I.O.I which formed through the first season of Mnet’s popular audition program “Produce 101” (2016).
After I.O.I disbanded in early 2017, Kim became a member of former girl group Gugudan (2016-2020) and also started her solo music career. Her best-known solo tracks include "Flower Way" (2016), "Plant" (2020) and "Whale" (2020).
Kim has also seen success as an actor, starring in the television series "School 2017” (2017), “I Wanna Hear Your Song” (2019) and “The Uncanny Counter” (2020-2021), as well as on entertainment shows.
