Thinking that this might be his last album, Lee Seung Chul spent a lot of time and effort on this album to make it perfect! This album [The Secret Of Color 2] is a continuation of his fourth album that he released back in 1994 with the title [The Secret Of Color]. Unfortunately, his fourth album did not gain as much popularity as his other albums due to the fact that he did not have much interaction with his fan club and being away in New York for four months to record his fourth album. For his ninth album, he recorded six new tracks in Korea before flying over to meet with All 4 One to receive three more tracks. The title song "I Love You" was composed by Kang Ji Won, who also composed the song "Clock" in Lee Seung Chul’s 8th album. It is a very addictive song with a strong melody and lyrics. – credits to purpletiger86

Choi Jung Chul Vol. 3 – Identity (released)

1. 사랑은 왜 해
2. 외롭다 (Intro)
3. 외롭다

5. 위대한 여인 (Feat. Cho Pd)
6. My Love Ⅱ
7. If I Could
8. I Believe
9. 잠시라도
10. 넌 참 좋은 사람
11. 초심으로 (Extended Version)

Is Jung Chul facing an identity crisis? The singer changed his name back to Choi Jung Chul for his third album, Identity, but there is a deeper significance to the name change. In his own declaration of independence, Choi Jung Chul now stands tall after many painstaking years of struggling to find his footing as a singer, overshadowed by his famous mother Nami’s colorful achievement in Korean music history. Pushing his own full name signifies his confidence in his music as well as in himself.

Topping the list of tracks in Choi Jung Chul Vol. 3 – Identity is "Why Love" (Track 1), a sentimental ballad that shows Choi’s vocals exerting a softened lyrical style in comparison to his two previous albums. "Original Intention" (Track 4) and "A Great Woman" (Track 5) are collaborations between the singer and renowned producer Jo PD. The two tracks offer a delicious blend of Choi’s colorful tones and Jo PD’s musical sophistication. Other noteworthy tracks include jazz number My Love 2 (Track 6) composed by Yoon Il Sang, pop melody If I Could (Track 7), lyrical ballad "For Even One Moment" (Track 9), and "You Are Such A Good Person" (Track 10) composed by MRG, who wrote many of Lee Soo Young’s hit songs. The journey of finding one’s identity may be a lifelong process. For Choi Jung Chul, Identity marks the beginning. – credits to YesAsia
