Just like Malaysia’s Shila Amzah, The One’s popularity in Greater China peaked after he took part in the third season of China’s reality singing competition, “I Am A Singer”, which was adapted from Korea’s original show of the same name aired on MBC.
South Korean singer The One has recently announced the release of his first Chinese album.
According to ECNS News, the singer, whose real name is Jeong Soon-won, announced the news at a press conference on 16 September, saying that his first Chinese album, “Because of You”, will be released online on Friday, 18 September.
In the new album, The One covered ten popular Chinese songs, including Leslie Cheung’s “I Am What I Am” and Faye Wong’s “I’m Willing”.
The singer also revealed that he is currently learning the Chinese language and plans to buy a house in the country to expand his career even further.
