The upcoming release will mark Park’s first solo material since his track ‘Color Eye’ in AB6IX’s 2020 mini-album ‘5NALLY’. The idol has previously released several collaborative tracks throughout his career, including the 2019 single ‘Candle’ with bandmate Lee Dae-hwi, and ‘Puzzle’ with former SISTAR member Soyou for the soundtrack of the 2021 comedic period drama Mr. Queen.
AB6IX’s last comeback was their October 2022 mini-album ‘Take A Chance’. It was led by the single ‘Sugarcoat’, which featured lyrics penned by Park and Lee. The record also included the Korean-language version of their song ‘Chance’, which was originally released as the boyband’s first-ever English single in August 2022.
The four-member boyband first debuted under Brand New Music, which was founded by Korean rapper Rhymer, with their mini-album ‘B:Complete’ in 2019. Prior to the group’s debut, Park, Lee and bandmate Kim Dong-hyun participated in the second season of Produce 101 in 2017, where Park and Lee placed sixth and third respectively and became part of the temporary boyband Wanna One.
