Kyuhyun Reveals Why He was First to Make Solo Debut from Super Junior
Super Junior’s Kyuhyun revealed that he was able to make his solo debut due to what SM’s Lee Soo Man said.
On November 13, Kyuhyun attended the showcase and press conference for his first solo album At Gwanghwamun at the Yes 24 Muv Hall in Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu and explained the process of his solo debut.
When asked, “Why do you think you were the first to make the solo debut from Super Junior?” Kyuhyun answered, “I think it’s thanks to the popularity I gained from variety shows and my likeable and friendly image.”
Kyuhyun said, “I like songs by Sung Si Kyung, Park Hyo Shin and Kim Dong Ryul sunbaenims. My taste of music suited autumn the best and I also communicated actively with numerous songwriters as I worked on Super Junior songs. That helped out greatly.”
Then Kyuhyun added, “Actually, the biggest reason is because Lee Soo Man sunsaengnim often said, ‘I think it’s about time for Kyuhyun to go solo’ at company dinners. I think it’s because of that.”
Meanwhile, 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 At Gwanghwamun as well as 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.
