Yesterday, 2PM’s Wooyoung had his debut performance as a solo artist at the mnet’s “20s Choice Awards,” and unfortunately, it was not the performance he dreamed of. The annual “20s Choice Awards” are always held outside and goes for the summer pool party concept. As such, there is always an excess of water on the stage , either from the pool or the sky (Korea’s summer monsoon season), which calls for tons of slips and faceplants.
In the middle of Wooyoung’s performance to “2night,” one of his backup dancers fell on the slippery stage. Moments later, Wooyoung also slipped as he was performing an intricate footwork sequence. He then slipped again at the end of his performance. What started out as a charismatic performance, it was heartbreaking to see Wooyoung’s confidence drop throughout the performance. The long runway-like stage, slippery floors, randomly placed models, and the lack of audience participation added to the awkwardness of the performance.
Meanwhile, the tracklist for Wooyoung’s upcoming solo album “23, Male, Single” has been unveiled several hours ago. The album will contain a total of seven tracks, two of which had been produced by his fellow 2PM members, Junsu and Junho. His title track “Sexy Lady” is produced by J.Y. Park “The Asiansoul.”
Wooyoung’s solo album is scheduled to be released on July 8.
