Is this the start of EXO’s Chanyeol releasing more self-made compositions?
According a recent news report on February 9, the singer allegedly registered a new stage name with the Korea Music Copyright Association (KOMCA), a copyright collective for musical works in South Korea.
As the report stated, a quick search for Chanyeol in “authors” (more commonly referred to as producers or composers in layman’s terms) on KOMCA’s official site led to two names being listed under the same artist code, an indication that it is the same person. One is his full name, Park Chanyeol, while the other says “LOEY.”
LOEY appears to possibly be “yeol” from Chanyeol inverted. In addition, a look into the tracks he has participated in either as a composer or lyricist suggests it has not been long since he has registered this new name. He is credited as LOEY for being one of the composers and lyricists of two logo songs made in honor of SBS PowerFM’s 20th Anniversary, which was in November 2016. Prior to these two tracks, he is credited as “Park Chanyeol” on other tracks.
The singer is known to share many of the songs he is working on through V Live broadcast, as well as occasionally on his SoundCloud. He also recently opened a YouTube channel, and excited fans with what’s to come.
Are you excited to possibly see more of Chanyeol’s compositions being officially released?
