Nayeon of girl group TWICE will release "Im Nayeon," her first solo album, next month, her agency said Thursday.
JYP Entertainment also unveiled a promotional poster for the upcoming album on social media.
Nayeon will drop the work at 1 p.m. Friday, June 24, in Korea, which is midnight in the U.S. (EST), apparently with that music market in mind. The Friday release is because the Billboard charts are compiled from that day until the following Thursday according to the U.S. eastern time zone.
The album's title has a double meaning, which is the singer's full name and her confident declaration that "I'm Nayeon," according to the agency.
The 26-year-old singer debuted as a member of TWICE that churned out many hit songs, such as "OOH-AHH," "Cheer Up" and "Likey." (Yonhap)
