Nichkhun to release a solo album

Feb 19,2019

Nichkhun, a Thai-American member of boy band 2PM, will release his first solo album since his debut with the band 11 years ago on Monday, his management agency said.

The album “ME” has nine tracks, all composed and written in English by Nichkhun himself, according to JYP Entertainment.

It is fronted by “Lucky Charm,” a song that combines mellow melodies with Nichkhun’s sweet voice.

The song “carries a story about fantasy and reality. It may come more soothing if you listen on a lazy morning or before going to bed,” Nichkhun was quoted as saying.

The album will be available for streaming starting Monday evening in Korea, as well as in China and Thailand.

“ME” also includes a special song dedicated to his fans, “Umbrella,” which will be sung in four different languages: Korean, English, Chinese and Thai.

“For the past 10 years, Hottest has been protecting me from rain,” Nichkhun said, referring to the fan community of 2PM.

On March 7, the Thai film “Brother of the Year,” featuring Nichkhun in the lead role, will hit theaters in Korea.
