Q & A::
Q: Why do you not feel satisfied with yourself?
A: It’s because he isn’t making the kind of music he likes. Music genres he really enjoys are blues, funk, and country. He feels that as a singer he is obligated to make music his fans want to hear. The balance of what the fans want and his style is very hard to find.

Q: What can you tell us about 생각이 너무 많아 (Think too much)?
A: The listening point of the song is the lyrics. He took all the things in his diary and wrote this song.

Q: What is you favorite song on the album?
A: Queen Bee, because it’s more his style with a jazzy blues feel.
