As far as Korean drama actors go, Kim Seon Ho's rise to stardom may have taken time. However, the South Korean actor is now making his presence felt in all aspects of the entertainment industry. Along with confirmed drama projects, the actor is now set to release a new single.
Kim made his screen debut in the 2017 drama "Good Manager." He found additional success with "Welcome to Waikiki 2" and "Two Cops." However, as the second lead, Han Ji Pyeong, Kim's role in "Start-Up" catapulted him to fame. His chemistry with co-stars Bae Suzy, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Kim Hae Sook cemented his image in fans' hearts.
Kim has been confirmed to star in the upcoming drama "The Seashore Village Chachacha," co-starring with Shin Min Ah. He is rumored to be in talks for the lead in "Link: Eat, Love, Die" with "True Beauty" actress Moon Ga Young.
The wait for those dramas may be long, but fans will be pleased to learn that Kim's first single is only days away.
When to expect Kim Seon Ho's new single
According to Kim's agency, SALT Entertainment, the actor will be collaborating with Epitone Project for his new single. He appeared in the music video for "Sleepless," sung by YOUNHA, for Epitone Project last year.
The single titled "Why It's You" (literal translation) will be released on May 6, at 6:00 p.m. Korean Standard Time.
What to expect from Why It's You
"Why It's You" was composed and produced by Epitone Project. It is described as a soft pop acoustic song. Kim also contributed to the song's lyrics in addition to singing the song.

The agency also released a teaser image for the upcoming music video of the song. The image features Kim Seon Ho at a hanok (a traditional Korean house), staring away from the camera, with light purple flowers and leaves in the foreground, signaling that "Why It's You" will be spring-themed.
