Girls' Generation's YoonA's special solo album has been receiving lots of love from her fans all over the world!

On May 23 KST, SM Entertainment revealed two sets of teaser photos for the female artist's "A Walk to Remember." In the first set of photos, the Girls' Generation member was in a beautiful white dress with a blue background, showcasing her princess-like charm. While in the second one, she was wearing a simple white sleeveless shirt and pants, displaying her natural beauty.

On May 24, YoonA dropped another set of dramatic teaser photos. Then on May 26, her fourth set of gorgeous teaser images were unveiled. It is a black-and-white concept photo that exposes her strong visuals.

The artist's album "A Walk To Remember" was then released on May 30, the exact date of her birthday. One day after its publicity, it eventually made it to the top on iTunes album charts in over ten countries like Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Peru, Chile, and Saudi Arabia.

Moreover, the album took the lead in domestic physical album charts. It was also in first place on QQ Music, China's largest music streaming site.

"A Walk To Remember" is said to have an emotional appeal. The title actually has two meanings: it conveys the significant value of memory, and to walk literally through recollection.

The mini album has five tracks, each composed in connection with the four seasons and two of which are new. The first title track is "Summer Nights." It is a song that features a singer 20 years of age. It is described as an emotional acoustic ballad, creating an image of a romantic summer night setting.

The second title track is called "Promise," and is addressed to her fans. It is an acoustic pop track, with a melody that is easy to follow. The song expresses YoonA's message to her fans, asking them to take a break when they are weary.

In addition to the new tracks, the album also contains some of YoonA's past songs, such as "Deoksugung Stonewall Walkway" that features 10 cm, and "When The Wind Blows." The singer will be re-releasing "To You" as well, a song in collaboration with musician Lee Sang-Soon.

"A Walk To Remember" is not YoonA's first single album as she has had her first Chinese digital single titled "Blossom," which was released on August 4, 2016, and marked her Chinese debut. All three songs in the album were sung in Mandarin.
