DAY6’s Young K has confirmed that he will be releasing his debut solo album in October and that he will be enlisting for his mandatory military service shortly after. The singer personally announced the news in a V LIVE broadcast, stating:
“As you could tell from the title of the broadcast, I will be releasing a solo album. I’m making my solo debut! The album’s title is ‘Eternal’ and the news was announced today. A lot of people are asking why I’m already preparing a new album, I really wanted to share the news about the solo album with fans as soon as possible. It’s only been two months since we released our sub-unit album, so why am I releasing a new album so soon? Many people are already aware of this, but it has come time for me to fulfill my national defense duties. I will be leaving in October, so I’m working hard to prepare as fast as possible in order to show fans as much as I can before I go. Let’s laugh and smile as much as we can! I wanted to show a good side of myself in order to make a lot of people happy. So let’s not be too sad about this. I’m going to work hard so that we can smile as much as possible, so please don’t worry too much.”
Young K will be the second member of DAY6 to enlist, following Sungjin who enlisted in March. Stay tuned for more updates on Young K and his upcoming projects!
