Another K-Pop idol is going solo.
This time, it’s former MBLAQ member Thunder, who is currently preparing for his solo debut sometime in the middle of December.
In a statement released by Thunder’s current label, Mystic Entertainment, it was expressed that the idol will be promoting under his birth name Park Sang Hyun. The album will reportedly show “a different side of him that has not been seen before”.
Not much is known about his upcoming album, as Mystic explained, “Although we do have outlines for the title track as well as the follow-up tracks, we’re currently not at a stage where we can exactly reveal any details.” However, the chances that the title track will be a dance track is fairly high.
Thunder, brother of 2NE1’s Sandara Park, debuted with MBLAQ in 2009, under legendary K-Pop idol Rain’s company, J. Tune Camp. They produced several hit tracks like “Y”, “This Is War”, “Mona Lisa”, and “Smoky Girl”, but at the end of 2014, Thunder and Lee Joon decided to leave the group to focus on their individual activities.
The 26-year-old idol then signed with Mystic Entertainment’s music label APOP and kick started his acting career in MBC’s “Make A Woman Cry”.
