Q & A::
Q: How did you get into Ballads?
A: He gravitated toward Korean ballad music, because it was a genre with a sound that just pulled him in. When he was in high school he would unknowingly sing rock song in an R&B fashion. Teachers would point it out to him, and that’s when he began to think that maybe he had a taste for R&B.

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: His likes taking pictures, and going on drives. He particularly likes taking pictures of the sky. He doesn’t pick a destination when he drives. When he goes to the bus station, he closes his eyes, and when he opens them wherever they land first he will go there for no reason but to go there.

Q: How did you end up collaborating with Soyeon (소연 (from Laboum))?
A: They are in the same company, and we’re on a survival show together, and that’s how the ‘Moment Like This’ duet came to be.

Q: What is 노스탤지어 (Nostalgia) about?
A: Nostalgia is about the past and memories. Is about not being able to go back to that past time.
