Righ after the 5-member idol boy group ended promoting the album, vocalist Jonghyun geared up to make a solo comeback. In fact, Lee Soo Man, founder of his talent agency SM Entertainment, is revealed to be the producer of his latest album, “The Story Op. 1”.
Of course, no one knew about that until SM posted up this mysterious image, followed by a teaser video.
Anticipation for his new album has been heightened since then and we’ve only gotten more excited to find out what Jonghyun might have in store for us.
Considering how his solo debut album “BASE” was well received by fans, we wouldn’t be surprised if his new album will have the same effect. Not to mention, Soompi reported that this special mini album is entirely produced, written, composed by Jonghyun himself.
It will consist of 9 tracks, including the title song “End of the Day,” a touching and soothing ballad.
Finally, on 17th September, Jonghyun made his spectacular comeback to the Korean music scene by releasing the music video for “End of a Day” and the new album altogether.
Starring actor Otani Ryohei and an unknown actress, the music video tells the story of 2 people through a split screen. The 2 can be seen going through hardship, wandering around the streets of Japan before finding comfort in each other. The scenes merged into one at the end of the video. Jonghyun’s smooth and emotional vocals blend perfectly together with the soft piano arrangement as well.
Meanwhile, Jonghyun will kick off his highly anticipated solo concert, “THE STORY by JONGHYUN”, on 2nd October.
