[K-Pop Battle] SS501’s Park Jung Min vs. Infinite’s Sung Kyu
Not only will SS501’s Park Jung Min and Infinite’s Sung Kyu be battling it out on the music charts, when their respective solo albums drop this month, we’re throwing them into the ring for this week’s K-Pop Battle.
Park Jung Min and Sung Kyu have left their nests for the time being, and although we have faith that they’ll do just fine on their own, we want to see which idol star will come out on top.
Park Jung Min
After making his K-Pop debut in 2005 with idol group SS501, Park Jung Min flew solo in 2011 with single Not Alone before releasing his first mini album The, Park Jung Min later that year.
He recently returned to the K-Pop scene with new single album Beautiful on November 14, and the music video to the upbeat song shows off his many charms as he takes the viewer through various musical periods.
The single album also contains the acoustic guitar ballad You See It’s Like, featuring Kim Zuwan of Viva Soul, which highlights a more sensitive side of the singer.
Infinite’s leader Sung Kyu is taking the leap as a solo artist for the first time since making his debut in 2010.
Sung Kyu hopes to keep the momentum of Infinite’s success, through hit songs like Before the Dawn, Be Mine and The Chaser, going with the release, and anticipation is already high for the popular idol group member’s solo debut.
If the pre-released preview track Shine is any indication of what’s to come, we don’t think fans will be disappointed.
Sung Kyu’s first solo album, Another Me will be released on November 19, but in the meantime, check out the latest teaser, featuring fellow Infinite member L.
So which idol group member flying solo will win this week? It′s all in your hands, so head over to our K-Pop page and vote away!
