Returning to K-Pop with Round 3, Kim Hyun Joong revealed that his title track was not supposed to be Your Story.
During an interview with fashion magazine, High Cut, Kim Hyun Joong said he had to give up his original title song because of Psy. The reason was because the title song he wanted was also named Gentleman.
“It was a song that we’ve been working on since last year, so I was a bit greedy with the title,” explained Kim Hyun Joong. “But then Psy sunbaenim came out with Gentleman first, so we tried changing the title to Superman and others, but it didn’t stick.”
He added that Gentleman ended up just being one of the songs on his new album.
“That’s why Your Story was born and it’s a good song, so everything worked out in the end.”
The full interview and pictorial will be included in issue 107, to be released on August 1.
