John Park has added his name to the already stacked list of male artists headed for a comeback this June. The K-pop artist released his comeback track DND (Do Not Disturb) June 14 which showcased his vocal skills and the depth of his artistry.
According to All Kpop, when John Park released the first teaser of “Do Not Disturb” on youtube, it has received positive feedback from the fans. “The deep voiced king is back,” one fan said. “I can’t wait for the full album,” another fan said. The feedback was generally good as most fans expressed excitement about John Park’s extraordinary vocals and distinctive timbre.
In an interview with Soompi,John Park said that DND which he composed himself and produced in collaboration with Mamas Gun lead vocalist Andy Platts, is a song that is intended to depict a feeling of relaxation when one pushes back worries like homework and problems behind. “I hope that when people hear this song, they’ll be able to take a moment and relax as they live their busy lives,” he said.
John Park is relying on strong anticipation to propel his comeback to the top of the charts amid some strong competition this month. G-Dragon’s solo comeback achieved a certified all-kill in real time charts almost as soon as his album “Kwon Ji Yong” released last June 8. Hwang Chi Yeol has already sold 100,000 units of his album on pre-orders alone while Eddy Kim and Lee Seuk Hoon will also be making their most anticipated comebacks this month.
Aside from the solo acts, John Park would also have to compete with K-pop idol groups like NCT127, DAY6, FTIsland, Taell of Block B, among others. Still, the artist remains confident in his new music to go head to head with the rest of the pack, Kpop Mapreported.
Unlike other acts, however, John Park’s comeback will just be made up of one song. “John Park will be returning with a single album, composed of just one track. He will also be promoting the album through broadcasts,” his label announced recently. His single “Thought of You” was released way back in July 2016 so it will be interesting to see how much the artist has evolved in his long hiatus.
