Park Ji-yoon to release ninth studio album next month
SEOUL, Feb. 17 (Yonhap) — Park Ji-yoon, an idol diva-turned-singer songwriter, will release her ninth full-length studio album next month, her distributor said Friday.
Park’s new album titled “parkjiyoon9″ will be released on March 2 and will carry 10 tracks, according to Sony Music. It will be her first full-length album in five years outside of several singles released since.
On the title track “Gereoji Mayo,” which means “Don’t do it” in Korean, Park sings of the pain from falling out of a relationship. Eight tracks were written by Park herself, Sony Music said.
Renowned recording artists, such as Jung Jae-won and Cho Jung-chi, chipped in during the album’s production.
Park, 35, debuted in 1997 and soared to stardom in the early 2000s from hits, including “Skyblue Dream” and “Coming-of-Age Ceremony.” She transformed herself into a singer-songwriter, beginning with her seventh album released in 2009.
