After 6 years, INFINITE’s (인피니트) Nam Woo Hyun (남우현) finally made his long-awaited solo debut!
The music video for the emotional title track, “Nod Nod” (끄덕끄덕), off his first mini-album, “Write”, dropped earlier today and it sure made us nod in acknowledgement.
The 25-year-old idol singer revealed recently that he was preparing for his solo album for a long time.
“I had to work slowly and steadily. I actually prepared for 2 years in order to show my own unique color, one that’s different from when there’s 7 of us. I apologise I made you guys wait for so long,” said the star through his V app live show.
He also added that the lyrics in “Nod Nod” moved him so much that he kept listening to it for 3 months.
Written by Jay Yoon and Kim Yi Na, “Nod Nod” is a tearful and slow ballad that expresses the loneliness, emptiness, and misery after a separation with a lover. The music video features Woo Hyun’s emotional acting, Japan’s gorgeous spring sights, and some very well-taken black-and-white photos.
“Write” consists of 6 tracks and all of them are love songs that have different breakup stories behind them. Several tracks such as “Gravity” and “Fragrance” (향기) were co-written and co-composed by Woo Hyun himself.

Woo Hyun made his debut in 2010 through INFINITE with “Come Back Again” (다시 돌아와) and the group quickly rose to fame, becoming one of the most popular idol male groups around. Aside from his musical projects, the idol star also acted in several dramas like “Hi! School: Love On” and “The Thousandth Man”.
