Rather than this being a 10th album, it will be a special album for fans. The title track is Nonsense, which was composed by hit-makers Kim Do Hun and Kim Sejin. This dance track has house rhythms and incorporates trendy synthesizer sounds. Other songs worth mentioning are Only You, which includes Kim Jong Min’s voice, and Eve’s Warning, which is a remake.
