Woojin’s voice is often described as angelic, but his lyrics don’t shy away from difficult down-to-earth subjects. When writing songs he says he’s most inspired by his fans who are known as Cubs.

“I usually think about the topic that I want to convey to Cubs and work on it and what people think these days and what are the difficulties,” said Woojin. “I wish the Cubs happiness when they listen to my song.”

He’s fond of singing ballads and they are perhaps the best way to appreciate his vocal skills. Consider his tender song Say Something To Me, which was released on Aug. 4 as a preview of his second mini-album The Moment: Bounce. It’s a dreamlike emotional melody about how hard it is to be alone. Still, while he likes to sing ballads he also enjoys the energy of pop songs.

“I used to listen to a lot of ballads,” said Woojin. “That’s why I enjoy that genre, but I like listening and singing pop songs the most.”

The Moment: Bounce was released on Aug. 30. The upbeat title track On My Way declares that Woojin is on a musical and personal journey, with no intention of slowing down. His career is seeing a bounce and gaining momentum. If the album was a Broadway show this would be the energetic opening number in a coming-of-age story about finding your own way. The mini-album also includes Song of Icarus, Telepathy, Drive Away and Tryin.’

“The album expresses the positive dynamics of coming of age with many different emotions,” said Woojin in his album notes. “The will to live life by my own rules with individuality. The dynamic energy to realize my own dreams, the first heart fluttering feelings for someone, the freedom to leave wherever the heart desires, in the midst of that a complicated feeling that’s hard to grasp, and my deepest and honest story that I could only share with you.”

To celebrate his new music and meet more of his international fans, Woojin will visit India in October on a tour organized by Pink Box Entertainment and his agency 10x Entertainment.

“Through this tour, I want the fans to know what kind of music and performances Kim Woo-jin likes and wants to show,” he said. “And I hope the fans get my overflowing energy on stage and have a great time together!”

His goals as an actor and musician are pretty simple.

“I want to show myself to more people and give strength to those who listen to my songs and watch my acting.”
