Seo In Guk, who has been busy with acting projects for the past year (“Answer Me 1997” and “Rascal Sons”) is finally making a return as a singer!
It’s been a year since his last mini album, “Perfect Fit,” and for fans, it has been a long wait. But Seo In Guk is bringing his voice back to the music scene with a new single album titled, “With Laughter or With Tears” (or literally in Korean, “I Smiled and Then I Cried”).
“With Laughter or With Tears” is a soul-ballad with a calm R&B rhythm played by a nylon string guitar. As a genre never before tried by Seo In Guk, the singer is showcasing a different style of singing that emphasizes restrain and subtle emotions.
The single album includes, as we previously reported, a song composed and written by actress Goo Hye Sun. Although she has written songs for herself before, this is the first time she has written a song from someone else.
Another notable point about Seo In Guk’s return is that he will be having comeback performances on all of the three main terrestrial television networks: KBS, MBC, and SBS. As a singer found through the cable network Mnet’s show “Super Star K,” the singer usually had his comeback performances only on Mnet’s “M!Countdown” until now. To specially mark this change, Seo In Guk will be delivering different stage versions for his various comeback performances based on the theme of “A Man’s Separation.”
Seo In Guk will be having his first comeback performance today on April 11 on “M!Countdown.” Stay tuned to Soompi for the performance video later today.
