  • [2013-10-17]



  •  The Japanese version of the 19th album of singer Cho Yong-pil, 63, will be released both in Japan and Korea on Oct.16, Universal Music Korea announced on Oct. 15.

     
    At the request of fans, Universal Music Korea imported 300 copies of the 19th album limited edition, which includes music videos for ‘Hello’ and ‘I want to walk’ as well as a DVD of Cho’s national tour, and the distribution edition for sale to local fans.   
     
     
    The Japanese version of tracks Bounce, Hello and I want to walk will be released at noon on Oct. 16 through local music source sites.
     
     
    The Japanese media showed a keen interest in the 19th album as it was released 15 years after Cho marked the end of his activities in Japan in 1998.
     
     
    Some media sent reporters to Korea to cover his national tour. In addition, the Japanese morning information variety show program ‘Zip!’, which is gaining high viewing figures, reported the release of the Hello music video and album.  
     
     
    A representative of Universal Music Korea said that “Ok Taek-yeon of 2PM performed a rap that features on the Japanese version of Hello, the title song, marking the generational unity of K-Pop in Japan.” He added, “It is meaningful as it is Cho’s first Japanese performance after a 15-year break.”
     
    Cho will hold a solo concert ‘One Night Special’ in Tokyo’s International Forum Hall on Nov. 7.
