Q1: What is the meaning of your album title?

A: Actually after my first album I was enlisted to national service and has stopped my singing activities and this is like asking the fans to come back to me and support me for my comeback after a long-hiatus.

Q2: What is the concept for this album?

A: There are various genre from the album such as retro, and ballad. It's universal.

Q3: What was the hardest process during the album making?

A: This album was just recently launched and actually, I tried to learn dance for one of the songs in this album, Koreans are known for their trained/skillful dancers, some of them have been training since young, but  since I have to travel back-forth between Taiwan and Korea, I have no time to practice dancing.

Q4: Any moments as soon you returns to music industry?

A: Recently I had a concert in Taiwan and was worried since it's been a year since  I last  showed up in the entertainment industry, but the tickets sold out which surprised me and also give me pressure, which shows that I need to work harder.

Q5: Is there any message you would like to say to your Malaysian fans?

A:It's been a while since I have last been in Malaysia, and this time around I would like to show a different Bii to the fans.

Q6: What is a memorable moment during your career?

A: There was once, when I had a concert in Taiwan, my mom and younger brother who are currently living in Korea came and paid me a visit. For that, I thanked my record label for bringing them to Taiwan.

Q7: How was the feeling of returning to music industry after finished your military service?

A: Of course there was a lot of worry when I decided to return to singing, but I get a lot of support from my record label. They said that as long as I do the best in my album, there will be people(fans) who will comeback and that gave me courage. I hope everyone can support me.

Q8: Are there any plans on doing a drama or try something new?

A: My songs were featured in a few TV dramas in Taiwan before, and there are some invitations recently but it's still in negotiations with the company.

Q9: Are there any plans to do music/market in Korea like released an album in Korea?

A: Definitely, It's my dream but since I stepped foot and started from Taiwan, but before achieving that, my biggest dream is to host a very big concert,  such as a concert in Taipei Dome in Taiwan.

Q10: Do you have any Korean artistes that you look up at/ wish to collaborate with?

A: Yes. If given the chance, I would like to collaborate with JYJ Kim JaeJoong and also Big Bang.
