SUJU’s Kyuhyun Secretly Prepared for His Solo Album for 2 Years
Super Junior’s Kyuhyun revealed that he prepared his solo album in secret.
On November 13, Kyuhyun attended the showcase and press conference for his first solo album At Gwanghwamun at the Yes24 Muv Hall in Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu and revealed that he prepared for his solo album in secret for two years because he thought the other members would get jealous.
On this day, Kyuhyun said, “I felt pressured about being the first one from Super Junior to release a solo album but I’ve put down everything now. The members also cheered for me. If I become successful, I think the company will think, ‘What? Super Junior can do solo too?’ and give full support.”
When asked, “Was there no competition for a solo album release among the members?” Kyuhyun answered, “I prepared for the album for two years but I kept it a secret from the members. I didn’t tell anyone. Because I expected them to be jealous… For example, I thought Ye Sung hyung would be. But once I released the album, Ye Sung hyung was the first one to call and congratulate me.”
Kyuhyun’s first mini album At Gwanghwamun was participated by famous songwriters and teams, including Kenzie, who wrote numerous hit songs, pianist Yiruma, Brown Eyed Soul’s Jung Yeop & Eco Bridge, songwriter Yoon Young Jun, Yang Jae Sun, TVXQ’s Max Changmin and more.
The album includes seven songs, including the title song At Gwanghwamun and Eternal Sunshine, At Close, Moment of Farewell, One Confession, Flying, Deep In The Night and My Thoughts, Your Memories. Kyuhyun will begin promotions starting with KBS 2TV’s Music Bank on November 14.
