After D.O. released his first-ever solo album Empathy to wide critical acclaim last month, the EXO member is proving that he is in a class all by himself.
Throughout his prolific nine-year career, D.O. (birth name: Do Kyung Soo) has been a lead vocalist of one of K-pop’s most decorated groups and has also proven adept in television, film and theater. D.O.'s breakout role in 2014’s Korean drama series That’s Okay, It’s Love led to him scoring award-winning performances in the blockbuster My Annoying Brother as well as 2018’s top-rated TV series 100 Days My Prince. His first solo single, “That's Okay,” released in 2019, was solid proof of his potential as an all-around performer.
Over his beautifully arranged, eight-track album, D.O. flaunts his affinity for storytelling over a melodic mix of acoustic R&B and pop productions and lets the power of his delicate-yet-full-bodied vocals and emotive lyrics shine over stripped-back ballads like “My Love,” the confessional serenade “I’m Gonna Love You,” and the breezy folk-pop single “The Rose.”
