On August 13th, YG Entertainment released an announcement regarding the two members’ upcoming solo albums. The full explanation can be found below:
Hello. This is YG Entertainment.
We briefly provide news about the new music releases of WINNER members Song Mino and Kang Seung Yoon.
Song Mino plans to release a full-length solo album in October.
Since this is the production of a full length album of over 10 songs rather than a single or mini album, it took longer than expected and he is currently focusing on the final stages of recording.
When we factor in the remaining second half of production and the shooting schedule for the music video, we expect the solo album’s release time to be in October.
Kang Seung Yoon is focused on his role in the new MBC miniseries “Kairos,” which premieres in October, and he does his best to impress as an actor. He took time out of his busy schedule to work on his solo music at the same time and steadily.
With his drama shooting schedule overlapping his music production schedule, it is still difficult to predict a specific album release schedule, but both members have expressed their desire to release full-length albums, so YG will share the opinions of the Respecting and supporting artists as ours will be our first priority and our best with the aim of the fall releases.
YG always listens carefully to the voices of the fans and we always strive to give back for the generous support of the fans. We sincerely thank the fans for the unchanging affection and anticipation and ask for support for Kim Jin Woo and Lee Seung Hoon, who have been serving in the military since April after the release of WINNER’s third studio album “Remember”.
