Following Kim Hyun Joong, Park Jung Min amd Kim Hyung Jun, SS501 member Heo Young Saeng again as a solo singer starts his solo activities.

After a hiatus of 1 year, he released his 1st mini album "LET IT GO" and returned back to the fans side. For the 1st time to come on stage as a solo, in actual fact he is quite pressurized, but Young Saeng still gave a faint smile.

"Feeling stress, not knowing whether can do it till the end. But for the 1st time using my own name, feeling a little nervous standing on the stage, but I still engjoy the feeling."

Having said that, but the debut album's first stop in the process of making the album was produced with the company on behalf of the differences of opinion.

Initially Heo Young Saeng's debut album was supposed to be released in Feb. But in order not to rush but to be careful in the album production, thus the album release was delayed. During the process, Young Saeng had a fierce "war" with the company due to differences in ideas and opinion when accepting and recording of songs.

"I think this is the first SOLO album, I would like to start a new image, while the representatives that the melody is more important. "

"If were to go according to a fixed idea it will not be successful" must breakthrough from the expected, use a dance track as the main title song for his solo released, Heo Young Saeng listened to his company representative advise.

"According to the idea and after confirming the title song, then start to do my best for the dance choregraphy for this song." so that is how the title song "LET IT GO" was emerged. This song can showcase Heo Young Saeng dance of passion. As the main vocalist of SS501, many people believe that Young Saeng title song will definitely showcase his strength in ballad singing, but "LET IT GO" has break those people's thinking. "If asked 10 people, there will be 8 people says that you will be singing ballads, it is because of this, thus we wanna break this this concept which people have, if we dont breakthrough this concept there are no chance of winning.

When Heo Young Saeng was practicing for his dance, his right hand knocked into the mirror of the dance practice room, causing a fracture, which needs 4 weeks to recuperate. Even though his injuries caused the album to be delayed, but Young Saeng still remains optimistic: "With this delayed, in fact it can give me more time to be better prepared."

Although he really miss the times when the 5 members are together, but the 5 together as 1 will be slightly delayed. "Everyone now is with different companies, although we have idea of coming together again, but it is easier said than done. After our solo activities have come to a total end, we will fix it next year to discuss this specific issue."

though it is obvious and very difficult to admit, coming from the members themselves, they do want a group comeback but the big question is WHEN?

right now, i am just thankful that i get to see, hear and read about each member... despite their hectic schedules and different agencies, the members update and support each other even if it means they are their own competitors.. this is the meaning of true friendship and brotherhoood.... it encompasses distance, age, differences

thanks for sharing this article on Ys (A)

At first I thought waiting for them would be torture, but seeing how strong they are becoming individually...I think this solo period is a really great learning experience for them. Thinking like that, I don't mind the wait as much cause I can already anticipate how fierce and awesome they will be once they decide to be five again

Good for you YS. I'm wishing you the best. Love all of your songs to bit.

If this article is on KHJ Leader, there will be a war in here. lol
I feel pity for leader some time. There're way too many over-jealous fans, and it's ironic they called themselves as TripleS.
