On March 2007, Lyn had released her 4th studio album, “The Pride of the Morning”. Last February, she released a project album, “That Man That Woman’s Story” and this month, Lyn is to release her fifth album which consists of a total of 10 tracks (7 of which she penned and 1 which she composed).  This album has great ballads which she is known for but it also includes some dance numbers to bring new color into her works. The title track is “Love…It’s All Lies” and it was composed by Lee Jae Myung, who is responsible for many hits such as Super Junior’s Mary U and SNSD’s Kissing You. Lyn has taken part in writing the lyrics for this song. The song is about the sadness a woman feels after breakup and it is expected to be one of her hits songs. Also included in the album is “Full of Charm”, which was previously released as a digital single featuring MC Mong. One more track worth mentioning is “Date”, which is a remake of veteran singer Lee Sora’s song.
