Kim Hyun Joong debuts with the album “Break Down” as he displays a different persona compared to his SS501 days. Hyun Joong has taken the most generic route out of all the SS501 member’s solo activities – typical synthesizer instrumentals, heavy beats and catchy choruses as well as bubblegum pop.

Together with Japanese group, V6 and KAT-TUN’s producer Steven Lee, Kim Hyun Joong involved himself in the album-making just to reveal more of talent as a solo artist. “Break Down” boasts a total of six songs, with one instrumental version of the title track.
The title track “Break Down” is a powerful synthesized song with an urban style which features a stylish rapping of South Korea’s Double K; and Ken Lewis (Eminem, Kanye West, Usher and John Legend) as the single’s producer. The music video for “Break Down” was simultaneously released with the single’s digital release.
Marking his comeback to the music scene, the album also boasts the previously released single “PLEASE” in which Kim Hyun Joong portrayed a different and mature image in his music video. Other album highlights include “Intro (Let Me Go)”where Kim Hyun Joong opens with a magnificent pipe organ melody. Also in the album is the song “Kiss Kiss”another pop/ dance song but accompanied with an acoustic guitar and dance-y beat “Yes I Will.”
