Even though it has not been long since his previous EP “Scene26,” he acknowledged, he was full of excitement.
“I am working in a range of areas but am most excited when I get to present a new side of me as a singer,” said the singer/actor.
“The expectant feelings for the first solo album are still vivid but it already is the fourth,” he said thanking his fans for continuous support and interests especially for the last two years since he struck out as a solo musician.
He has participated in writing all songs from the beginning and the EP consists of six tracks that he authored.
“I try to make songs that listeners can empathize with. I work with emphasis on music that are easy to listen to and easy to relate to,” said Lee.
He may be successful as an actor and an entertainer as well, but the stage is where his dreams are, he underlined, adding, “It is where I always miss, where I can be with good people and want to stay together with them.”
