Park Yoochun Reveals Controversial Plans For New Album And Comeback

It’s been a year since he announced his retirement.

Park Yoochun, former member of TVXQ and JYJ, made a controversial announcement that he’s planning to release a new album and concert. After multiple scandals regarding drug use, sexual harassment, and lying, he had announced his retirement in April 2019.

After slowly gearing up for a return to the industry through overpriced photobooks and an online fan meeting, Park Yoochun has officially announce that he’s planning on releasing a new album and concert.

We want to share some good news to the fans who have been waiting a long time for Park Yoochun’s album. We are currently preparing a new album release and will soon be able to greet everyone with a good album.

We also plan to hold a solo fan signing and mini-concert, so we ask for your interest and many love.

His representative agency announced that they’re planning to release the album in other Asian countries excluding Korea. They are currently in discussions to see if it’ll be possible to include Korea to the list.

The agency announced, “We’re planning to release the album at the end of September. We’ve finished preparations for the album.

We will be releasing a new album to other Asian countries aside from Korea, such as Thailand and Japan. It’s true that we are in discussions of releasing it in Korea as well. We are checking to see if it could be possible.

Back in May, Park Yoochun had revealed that he will be redacting his plans to retire and instead seek the public’s forgiveness.

I wanted to apologize to the public. I want to find the time to ask for their forgiveness. But that in itself requires a lot of courage. I couldn’t gather that amount of courage and have been debating a lot about it.

He continued on to claim that when he had announced his plans to retire, he was not in the right mind and did not mean what he had initially said.

It was an extreme decision. At the time, I was so confused and lost to the point that I don’t remember what made me think and say certain things. I wasn’t in the right mind to make a proper judgement.

I was very scared. I was heavily criticized for my past actions, and it was a time where I gave up on my own life.

Park Yoochun believes that his plans to return is far from a mistake and will be working to return to the industry no matter how long it takes.

It’s just so certain. I’m not sure how long it’ll take for me to turn around all the negative public opinion. I know it’s ridiculous of me to even ask for their forgiveness.
