“There are times when I miss promoting in a group, but I’m currently investing in myself. As a solo artist, this is my start.”

“Although B.A.P is my background, our team is currently unable to promote. It’s different to release a solo album while in a group and promote just as Youngjae. Right now, I’m making Youngjae into a brand.”

“I want to show [myself] with my music, dance, and performances. I want to be recognized for my musicality.”

“There isn’t a particular genre that I want to pursue. When I compose, I work to express myself in the best way possible.”

“Three years ago, I began writing songs to sustain my individuality. Once I began making them, I felt so proud. There are also memories that accompany each song. Now, whenever I think of a concept I want to write about or feel inspired, I want to quickly get to work. It’s like I developed a new hobby.

“More than anything, I was able to improve my vocal skills by composing. It allowed me to think more deeply about my voice and tone.”
