Hong Chang Woo’s project is a series of collaborations between Hong Chang Woo and the best vocalists, with all ballads. The first single, “FIRST STORY – First Love,” released on April 15, was praised for its unusual collaboration with the participation of Jun, Dong Hoon and Chan, the vocal line of boy group A.C.E.

Hong Chang Woo project’s upcoming single ‘I Thought Us Was Special’ is a song about the longing of the past felt by a man who’s just broken up with his lover. It is also an impressive song for Lee Changmin’s high-pitched voice and expressive ability to convey the flow of emotions step by step.

Lee Changmin, who has built up his career as a solo artist as well as a member of boy group 2AM and duo Homme for the past 12 years, will introduce his main talent, ballads, for the first time in a long time.

This will be Lee Changmin’s first comeback in about a year, after ‘Easy to Say’ was released last year. As he has gradually tried different genres in his existing ballad image, his response to his ballad, which has been released for the first time in a long time, is expected to be a hit.

The songwriting was completed with the collaboration of Hong Chang Woo and the composer Batter No. 4. Batter No. 4 has been working with Lee Seung Chul, Kyuhyun of Super Junior, Butterfly, Jia and EXID. Hong Chang Woo’s project will continue to showcase its bold collaboration following A.C.E. and Lee Changmin.
