Ready or not, Se7en is bouncing back with his first album in what feels like forever.
Se7en (real name Choi Dong Wook) began training under YG Entertainment when he was 15 years old. After 4 years of training in singing and dancing, he made his debut in 2003 with “Come Back To Me”.
In 2012, Se7en released his 2nd mini album with title track, “When I Can’t Sing”. Less than a year after that, the South Korean artiste enlisted for his mandatory military service at the 306 Reserve in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi Province for 5 weeks of basic training followed by 21 months as an active-duty soldier. His enlistment was a teary one as he uttered his goodbyes to his fans at his final Japanese concert series.
On the day that he enlisted, YG Entertainment released Se7en’s music video, “THANK U (고마워)”.
Alas, that marked the last time we would hear anything from Se7en in a long time as the singer’s contract with YG Entertainment expired in February 2015. It was later revealed that both Se7en as well as YG Entertainment mutually agreed to not renew the contract.
Not one to fall too far behind, Se7en opened his own agency, ELEVEN9, after returning to the public in December 2014. He has since been kept busy with holding his own events in Japan as well as appearing in his first musical, “Elizabeth”. And now, it seems like fans can expect to hear new music from the idol soon!
Se7en will be releasing an album sometime in mid-April. Koreaboo quoted a Star News report as saying that the idol has been busy working on new material for the release, which will most likely be a mini album. Mini album or not, we’ll take whatever we can get because this will mark Se7en’s first album in 4 whole years 😀
He will have some catching up to do, so we can’t wait to see what his concept will be like. Keep checking back with us for more details!
