Here's how Baekhyun feels about
his comeback and answers about his new album.
Q1. It is a solo album released
about 10 months after its first mini album. How do you feel about the comeback?
It's been a while since I made a comeback with a solo album, so I'm very nervous, but I'm excited and happy to think of the fans who were waiting for the album.
Q2. Introduce the second
- 'Delight' means 'joy' in a
dictionary sense, and I wanted to give joy to many people through this album.
(laughs) And I wanted to put "light" in the album's name because EXO
has the supernatural power of "light," but I chose
"Delight" to give it a feeling of being connected to my solo debut
album "City Light." There are seven songs in various moods, including
the title track "Candy," so please listen to them a lot.
Q3. What kind of song is the
title track "Candy"? What should I thank you for?
- 'Candy' is a trendy R&B
song, and the lyrics compare my various charms and match the different candy
flavors. If you look closely, there are many sensual and sensual expressions
that express the taste of "adult cinnamon, funny mint," so this is
likely to be the point of appreciation.
Q4. "Candy" is a song
that compares Baekhyun's charm to "Sweet." Which flavor do you think
would suit best?
-I'll give you a sour, sweet strawberry flavor. I personally like strawberries. (laughs)
Q5. Perform 'Candy' together.
What kind of dance is that? What did you particularly notice?
- I worked with Kasper, a
choreographer and an old friend. He used to teach us popular dances. Candy is a
trendy song, so it fits the style of the song. It is also a hip-hop dance that
is gaining popularity around the world. It is a song that melts hip movements.
Especially, I paid a lot of attention to the choreography of the chorus part.
Q6. How did EXO members react
after listening to the title song "Candy?
All the members cheered for me,
saying that the song was so good. Suho and Chanyeol came to the music video set
and gave us a lot of strength. (laughs)
Q7. From her first solo album to
this album, she is presenting R&B genre. If there's a genre you want to
- I'd like to challenge the genre
of rock ballads in a while. I've been listening to various genres of music
lately, and I personally felt that rock ballads have a great influence on me.
Q8. What 'Delight' would you like
to make Baekhyun happy?
Apologize! (laughs) These days, I
try to eat apples for my first meal every day. I think I haven't thought much
about my health so far, so I'm living my life to improve my immune system and
take care of my health.
Q9. Is there any goal you want to
achieve with your debut album?
-I want to strengthen my position
as a solo artist through this album, and I want to impress many people. And I
hope you can listen to my voice and feel healing as always.
