2PM’s Jun.K has returned as a soloist, instead of a member of an idol group.

Jun.K recently attended a photoshoot with magazine Singles, sharing thoughts about his first solo album activities in Japan.

Jun.K’s first solo album, Love & Hate, recently ranked number one on Oricon. The album received attention as it was composed and produced by Jun. K himself.

About his solo album Love & Hate, Jun.K said, “The album was a good opportunity and is meaningful to me at the same time. It has been twelve years since I studied music on my own and wrote songs. I thought that it’s about time that I show something to the public.”

About the entire album being made up of self-composed songs, he said, “I took some of them are from the notes I made before and some of them are entirely new. It’s too bad I’ll only be promoting in Japan… I had fun but struggled at the same time as I was preparing the album. I would hate to overlap in image with someone else or other songs. I focused on making music that I can do well and can express my unique traits. The songs contain elements of hip-hop, R&B and jazz, which I’ve been studying.

When asked about his mindset on promoting as a soloist, instead of as 2PM, Jun.K shared, “I want to let people know what I do. To be honest, everyone knows me as a member of 2PM but doesn’t know much about Jun.K. People will not know unless I show what I do and what talents I have. Of course, it’s regretful that I’ll only be promoting in Japan but I want to show Jun.K through this opportunity.”

The full interview and photoshoot of Jun.K will be included in the June issue of Singles.
