Sunggyu from INFINITE talked about his solo comeback and more on the show “Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time” on December 15th!
INFINITE debuted in 2010, meaning that Sunggyu debuted as an idol ten years ago. Sunggyu remembered his early days and said, “We worked really hard. (We were so busy) that we even drove a helicopter once. I am now 32 years old (according to Korean accounting) and debuted at the age of 22. Although my members and I haven’t seen each other for a while, we’re always the same and we still joke about a lot. “
Radio dj Choi Hwa Jung Kim Sung praised Gyu’s eyes and he said, “I used to wish I had double eyelids, but nowadays I just want to stay the way I am.”
On December 14th, Sunggyu released his third solo mini-album “INSIDE ME” and a music video for the title track “I’m Cold”. This is his first album since returning from the military and the first time he has worked without Nell’s Kim Jong Wan.
Sunggyu said, “It’s the first time I haven’t worked with Kim Jong Wan. It’s not because we fought or we had bad conditions. There was a song we worked on, but I felt that I wanted to give this album a new feel, so I saved it for later and tried again instead. I think I could release the songs we worked on next year. “
When asked if he went to particular efforts to show a “low-key sexy” concept for this album, he said, “I didn’t particularly think I should. I just thought I shouldn’t overdo it.”
Then Sunggyu talked about his title track and said, “It feels more like R&B and hip hop than rock, and it has a beat too. I have expressed the feeling of emptiness after a breakup by comparing it to the cold weather. “
In one of the photos for the album, he was forced to pose in a bathtub while wearing a white shirt. He said, “I haven’t thought about it much since I put my clothes on. My shirt got kind of see-through because it got wet. I used to be embarrassed about this, but now I don’t really care.”
Due to the ongoing pandemic, Sunggyu had to hold an online showcase without an audience. He said, “It’s different than before. It felt weird doing a window display with no audience. I couldn’t get used to it and it was so strange. It felt like I was singing alone. I could get the answers but see it live in real time. It was uncomfortable and sad, but I was grateful that I could at least see my fans that way. “
When asked what his greatest wishes are at the moment, he replied, “I want COVID-19 to be gone soon and I want to meet my fans and give a concert.”
