JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong is following in the heels of Kim Junsu and going solo.
C-Jes Entertainment revealed on December 18 that Kim Jae Joong would be releasing his first solo mini album in January.
The agency shared, “Vocalist Kim Ba Da of the legendary rock band, Sinawe directly took part in the new rock album which will contain a diverse range of music in the rock genre. You will be able to meet Kim Jae Joong’s husky and high notes that you wouldn’t have seen during JYJ’s activities.”
Kim Ba Da added, “Kim jae Joong possesses a lot of talents as a rock vocalist. Also, he has a genuine interest in music and gives his all when working on his album. Kim Jae Joong’s sexy yet glam singing style is very merit-filled. We did our best to include rock songs that wouldn’t pale in comparison anywhere else. In rock, one must bring out the story from deep within through the music and Kim Jae Joong does this exceptionally. I had the thought that it’s now time to acknowledge him not as an idol but an artist.”
Though the rock album is his first, Kim Jae Joong has previously performed a number of rock tracks at past concerts where he was met with favorable responses as well.
Regarding the new album, his agency said the details are still being worked out but that image and video teasers would roll out before the album and music video’s full reveal.
The album is targeting a January release.
