The singer's agency, Starship Entertainment, announced that he will release the mini-album on Oct. 24, unveiling a teaser poster for the album.

Earlier this year, Kihyun made his solo debut seven years after beginning his music career with the group, rolling out the rock-genre, three-track album, "VOYAGER."

The album scored over 135,000 sales during the first week of its release on March 15. The title track topped global weekly top 10 charts on local album tracker Hanteo Chart soon after its release.

The singer debuted as a member of the six-piece group Monsta X ― consisting of Kihyun, Shownu, Minhyuk, Hyungwon, Joohoney and I.M., with the album "Trespass" in 2015. The group has released a number of hit songs, including "Dramarama" (2017) and "Love Killa" (2020). It also landed on Billboard's main albums chart last year with its English-language album, "The Dreaming."

"YOUTH" will hit online streaming sites on Oct. 24 at 6 p.m.
