2PM may have just had their long-awaited comeback earlier this month, but that does not mean the individual members are shying away from their own projects. In fact, it has been confirmed that Junho is going to be releasing a solo album in July!
According to a press release by JYP Entertainment, "One of 2PM's members, Junho, will make his debut in Japan with his new song "Kimin No Koe." His solo album will be out on July 24 and Junho is the main producer of his new album."
Junho has been writing his own songs for a while now and has proved himself to be talented not only as a singer, but a lyricist as well.
"I have been writing songs and some of them were included in 2PM's album," Junho said of his recent activites.
He shared his excitement for the new solo album by saying, "This is my first time to have my own album to produce all by myself. I am happy to present a new side of 'Junho' who is different from 2PM's 'Junho'. I hope the best."
For the upcoming album, the 2PM member has not only been an important part of the music-making process, but has also been giving input on other necessary parts of the project including choreography and the album cover.
When the new album is finally released, Junho will embark on a solo tour of Japan holding a total of 12 concerts in the country. He begin in Sapporo on July 9 and continue on to Fukuoka, Namba, Nagoya, and Tokyo as part of the Zepp Tour. The finale of Junho's Japan tour will be at the Tokyo International Forum on August 29.
JYP Entertainment also released a short teaser video to pump fans up for Junho's solo debut in Japan.
