Isaac Hong makes a comeback with his new English EP ‘everland’ in collaboration with jazz composer, Soo young Chin

Korean singer Isaac Hong, a finalist (4th place) on the music competition show Super Band 1, is making a comeback with a new English album. Today, April 26th, Isaac has released his new EP titled “everland” and begins his full-scale activities. He participated in writing, composing, and arranging all the tracks on the album, and collaborated with talented jazz pianist and composer Soo young Chin to create a polished work.

The album captures the precious moments of the two musicians’ shared journey and is expected to resonate deeply with the audience. It includes four new tracks, including the double title tracks “her” and “everland,” as well as “pages” and “a bird.” Additionally, the album also features “(n)everland,” a pre-released track, and “her (director’s cut),” for a total of six tracks.]

The title track “her” was inspired by the movie “Her” and features dreamy synthesizer beats and a warm atmosphere. The other title track, “everland,” is a diary-like song about a boy who wants to find love and happiness but struggles to do so. “(n)everland,” the Korean version of the song, depicts the boy’s struggles and conflicts between reality and his dreams.

Isaac and Soo young have already gained attention for their attractive and charming appearance and chemistry in various content they have released together. As rising musicians in the Korean music industry, much attention is focused on their musical synergy and freedom expressed in their new songs.

Isaac Hong has teamed up with Tande-Music Services Limited, a Southeast Asian music PR and marketing company, to expand into the Southeast Asian market for his upcoming album. He has demonstrated his fluent English skills by conducting interviews with visiting foreign actors and directors on the show “Hong duku,” and even scored an exclusive interview with the Guardians of the Galaxy team during their visit to Korea.

Tande-Music Services Limited is a company that has a dedicated team for local marketing, promotion, and management in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. They’re led by veteran staff who have been responsible for international marketing throughout Asia and handle Southeast Asia PR for major music labels like Dirty Hit (home to The 1975, beabadoobee, and Wolf Alice) and 88rising (representing Joji, Rich Brian, NIKI, Jackson Wang, Stephanie Poetri). They also direct artist deals with high-profile names like Melanie C, Jesse McCartney, and Drax Project.
