VICTON’s Han Seung Woo Shares How His Group Members Reacted To His Solo Title Track, Names Genre He Wants To Try, And More
VICTON’s Han Seung Woo graces the cover of @star1’s September issue!
In an interview with the magazine, Han Seung Woo talked about his first solo mini album “Fame.”
When asked how his fellow VICTON members reacted to his album, Han Seung Woo replied, “As soon as they heard my title track, they said ‘This is Han Seung Woo’s song.'” He also said, “Honest evaluations sometimes made me feel disappointed, but I think the album came out better thanks to that.”
Han Seung Woo wrote lyrics for all his solo tracks, and he described his album as one that contains his own autobiographical stories. “I looked back on my life so far,” he said. “I wanted to express all the ups and downs and happy times that I’ve gone through while doing music.”
The idol went on to say that he feels like he’s become stronger while preparing for his solo debut. “I matured to the point that I’m able to express myself about life’s ups and downs, and I think my inner self has become stronger too,” he shared.
Han Seung Woo also said that he doesn’t want to limit himself to any genre, instead aiming to create different kinds of music. He mentioned his interest in trying trot music—lately, Korea’s experienced a boom of interest in trot, which is a genre of pop music known for its distinctive singing style with vocal inflections, and it used to be mainly popular among older generations.
“It would be too much to do it as a promoted song, but I’ve thought about how I want to try writing trot music once,” said Han Seung Woo. “Not only that, I also want to write a lot of different music regardless of genres, like I want to try writing music for a girl group or a commercial jingle.”
Han Seung Woo released his first solo mini album “Fame” on August 10, featuring the title track “Sacrifice.” Check out his music video here!
