Jan 13,2018
Veteran singer-songwriter Kim Dong-ryul’s latest track “Reply” dominated major music streaming charts on Friday.

The piece is one of the five tracks included on his latest album of the same title.

Before the album was released on Thursday, Kim expressed his gratitude on Facebook in anticipation of releasing a new project.

“Whenever I produce a new album, I always bear in mind that this could be my last one,” read the post. “So I always try my best to create the best,” he wrote.

Kim wrote the lyrics and melodies of each of the tracks, and produced them all as well. Actor Hyunbin stars in the music video of the title track, and singer Lee So-ra is featured on the song “Although We Say I Love You.”

Kim’s last album “Walking With” was released in October 2014. His other famous songs are “Etude of Memory,” (2008) “Like a Child” (2008) and “How I Am” (2014).
