  •  Cho Yong-pil to Announce New Album in Japan after 15 Year Break - Performance in Japan Also Planned  

     
    Gawang (Singing King) Cho Yong-pil (63) is to announce a new album in Japan, 15 years after he last performed, in 1998.
     
    According to his agency Universal Music on Sept. 4, Cho will sing the songs from his 19th album ‘Hello’, which created a sensation in Korea last spring, and release them on the album due on sale on Oct. 16. Cho is releasing this album 15 years after he last toured 10 Japanese cities in 1998 to mark the end of his activities in Japan.
     
    The new release on the Sigma label affiliated with Universal Music Japan includes a total of 13 songs plus those on the 19th album, including the title song ‘Hello’, the Japanese version of tracks ‘Bounce’ and 'I want to walk'.
     
    Verbal Jint, a rapper, recorded a rap part on the Korean version of Hello and Ok Taecyeon of group 2PM added an English rap to the Japanese version.
     
    In the first edition of the album, the music video of ‘I want to walk’ features Cho Han-son and the highlights of Cho’s local tour during the first half of this year will be included.
     
    Cho Yong-pil already completed recording for the Japanese version of tracks ‘Hello’, ‘Bounce’ and ‘I want to walk’. It was learned he cared much about the sound and Japanese pronunciation during the recording.
     
    A representative of Universal Music said, “During recording of the Japanese version, the relevant Japanese officials highly praised Cho’s capabilities with the Japanese lyrics  and his spoken Japanese during the recording session.”
