Chen, the main vocalist of popular K-pop boy band EXO, released his first solo EP earlier today, presenting six mellow ballads to the spring K-pop scene.
Ahead of the album’s official release set for Monday evening, SM Entertainment, the management agency for EXO, released the music video of the main track at the start of the same day, drawing more than 1 million YouTube views in slightly over 10 hours.
The 26-year-old, whose real name is Kim Jong-dae, has recorded a number of solos, including on the original soundtracks for various TV series, such as “Every time” for mega-hit 2016 series “Descendants of the Sun,” but it’s the first time he is releasing a solo album.
Other tracks include “Flower,” for which Chen wrote part of the lyrics, “Sorry Not Sorry” and “Love Words.”
The heartwarming six-track album was to be available for streaming at major local and overseas online music stores, including Melon and iTunes, from 6 p.m. It also has a release in CD format.
