SM introduces new singer

SM Entertainment, the management house for globally popular idol groups including Girls’ Generation, Super Junior and more, introduced a solo singer yesterday for the first time in 13 years. 

The lucky artist is named Henry, a member of Super Junior-M ? a project group which includes some Chinese-speaking members of Super Junior and other artists from outside of the group, like Henry, to expand its presence in Chinese-speaking countries. 

He released an album titled “Trap,” which includes six songs. Many of the songs were composed by Noize Bank, a composers’ group that Henry developed. “I Love You” is an electronic pop song that depicts the story of a man who isn’t so fluent in Korean and falls in love with a Korean woman. “My Everything” is an R&B song that features sweet lyrics of love, and “Ready 2 Love” is influenced by house music to give the album an edge. 

He also included a ballad, “I Would,” to show how well he can express some sensitive emotions, including the feelings that accompany breakups. 

The up-and-coming star had his first solo performance of the title song “Trap” yesterday on “Music Bank” on KBS. Members of idol groups with SM Entertainment, including Kyu-hyun of Super Junior and Tae-min of SHINee came up to the stage to cheer Henry on for a good run. 

The solo singer will also perform on “Show! Music Core” on MBC today and “Popular Song” on SBS tomorrow.
