Singer Se7en will soon wrap his activities in Korea to focus on his overseas promotions.
A representative from the singer’s agency, YG Entertainment, said on March 24, “[Se7en] will conclude his promotions in Korea on the scheduled March 25 SBS Inkigayo stage and plans to focus on his activities overseas for the time being.”
The public took great interest in the singer when he returned to the music scene with the Park Jin Young-produced R&B track When I Can’t Sing, a joint production between YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment. The track was not only refreshing but it was well-received for its honest, sorrowful lyrics.
When I Can’t Sing swept various online music charts upon its release and won first place on major music programs. Se7en’s mini album also took the top spot on the U.S. iTunes R&B chart as well as ranked fifth on Billboard’s World Album chart.
Park Jin Young and 2NE1’s Park Bom even joined Se7en onstage for special performances of the song on music programs, and the singer prepared a special performance utilizing the Korean flag for Samiljeol, Korea’s March 1 Independence Movement Day.
Meanwhile, Se7en will begin his promotions overseas in April, traversing across Asia and making stops in countries like Japan, China and Singapore. The singer will release a new single album in Japan on April 25 and hold showcases in Tokyo, Fukuoka, Nagoya and Osaka in May.
