Kim Jun-su, a member of the popular boy band JYJ, will release a special edition album later this month, his management agency said Tuesday.
The album, due on May 28, includes a disco-punk version of “X Song,” the double title piece of his third solo album that hit record stores in March, some 50 previously undisclosed photos of him and a DVD containing making-of videos for his recent music videos and the photoshoots for his album jackets, according to C-Jes Entertainment.
The 28-year-old said the new album will become available for reservation on various online music stores from Friday.
The singer dominated domestic music sites and topped the Japanese Oricon weekly chart for imported albums as soon as his third solo album “Flower” came out. It rose to the seventh post on the Billboard World Albums’ Chart.
“We received many inquires for the special edition album because Xia-Junsu made a big hit with his third solo album and tour of seven Asian cities,” the agency said. “We expect this album will also be received well as it includes a DVD and undisclosed photos.”
