JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong is set to release a repackaged version of his first solo album.
C-JES Entertainment said, “Kim Jae Joong will be releasing his repackaged album on January 20th, after making a successful transformation as a rock singer through his first solo album. His repackaged album will include a new song as well as a remake of the Japanese song ‘Makeup’ which earned much popularity when he performed it during his Asia tour.”
The repackaged album theme is set as ‘make-up removal’ as C-JES revealed, “The two new songs are meant to convey the painful feelings that one has when he/she wants to forget their loved one. We got the inspiration from ‘Makeup’ and decided to name it as ‘make-up removal’. From the songs, fans can listen to the various styles of conflicting emotions that Jae Joong’s voice will bring out.”
The album will also include unreleased footage from the music video of ‘Just Another Girl’ as well as footage of the music video production shoots
C-JES said, “Jae Joong has already completed the recording of the new songs for the album. The new songs are pop ballads that’s really suitable for the winter season, and the lyrics were penned by Jae Joong himself. ‘Makeup’ is a remake of a Japanese song of the same name, with Jae Joong writing the new lyrics. Jae Joong’s sensual vocals and manner of singing it, will definitely be a surprise to fans when they listen to it.”
Jae Joong has thus far enjoyed much success in his solo activities, and he was 4th in the ‘2013 Singer Award’ chart that was tabulated by Hanteo, and the only soloist that made it to the top 5.
Jae Joong released his first mini album ‘I’ in January 2013, before following up in October with the release of his 1st full-length album ‘WWW: Who, When, Why’. The album soon shot up music charts in Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong, as well as Japan’s Tower Record. It was also ranked 4th on Japan’s Oricon Weekly chart as well as becoming the most popular K-POP song on China’s CCTV3 for three consecutive weeks. The album also topped Hanteo real-time, daily, and week charts, and was first on a Synnara Record poll as the most likely to win at the year-end music festivals.
Meanwhile, Jae Joong will continue with his nation-wide tour in Gwangju on January 11th.
