Oak Joo-hyun releases album at last
After her five-year hiatus as a singer, Oak Joo-hyun will release her first EP on Feb. 28.
The album titled “Reflection” will contain six tracks, three of them new songs, and feature composers Jung Suk-won and Shin Jae-hong. Oak’s agency likens the release to “emotions felt in life.”
Ahead of her EP, Oak also gave fans a little teaser in the form of a single titled “Hemostasis.” It was released Jan. 17 and is a fusion piece containing elements of pop, ballad, musical and classical music.
The song with the strange title draws parallels to a jilted lover in pain.
Oak made her debut with the girl group Fin.K.L in 1998 and later made a successful transition to musicals. She has spent the past few years playing the leads of local productions.
Last year, Oak was named one of the two best-selling performers for 2012 by the ticketing Web site Interpark. The other winner was JYJ’s Park Jun-su whom she acted with in “Elisabeth.” Currently she is starring in “Rebecca,” playing the role of Mrs. Danvers.
