K-pop Legend Cho-Yong-Pil Will Release New Song. The legendary Korean pop singer Cho Yong-Pil is returning this week with a new album, his management company said on Tuesday. This is his first release in nine years.
According to YPC Company, the 72-year-old singer’s new single, “Road to 20-Prelude 1,” will be released on Friday at 6 p.m. The next release was also teased on the singer’s official YouTube page. Approximately translated, the Korean track titles seen in the 30-second teaser video were “Moment” and “Like Serengeti.”
The film also revealed the album’s release date and time. The K-pop icon’s 19th studio album, titled “Hello,” was released in 2013. The album’s singles “Bounce” and “Hello” became massive hits, overtaking those of more recent K-pop talents like Psy of “Gangnam Style” in the process.
The agency claimed in the video, “It will be released as a single album, which he has never tried before.” They did not provide any other information about the planned release. The year 1968 marked Cho’s first appearance in the public eye when he made his debut with the rock band Atkins.
