On July 22, it was announced that GOT7’s Jay B would release a new EP on August 26.
This will be his first mini album to be released under his new label, H1GHR MUSIC, which he officially joined in May. Soon after he joined the new label, Jay B released a solo single “Switch It Up,” featuring sokodomo and produced by Cha Cha Malone.
The new EP will contain seven tracks, including “Switch it Up.” In the album, Jay B will take on diverse music challenges and showcase featuring artists from different genres. He will show a new side of himself as an artist that is different from his work as a group in GOT7.
The mini album will have a physical version as well as a digital release. Jay B is preparing various physical album promotions and online events for his domestic and international fans.
H1GHR MUSIC stated that with the release of his new EP, Jay B plans to showcase his own unique musicality through music, performance, and content that is based in R&B sound.
On July 22, it was confirmed that Jinyoung will take on the role of Yoo Babi in the upcoming drama.
“Yumi’s Cells” is a drama based on a hit webtoon about an ordinary office worker named Yumi, told from the perspective of the brain cells in her head controlling her thoughts, feelings, and actions. Previously confirmed roles include Kim Go Eun as Yumi, Ahn Bo Hyun as Goo Woong, Lee Yoo Bi as Ruby, and Park Ji Hyun as Sae Yi. SHINee’s Minho will be making a special appearance as Woo Gi.
Jinyoung’s character Yoo Babi is Yumi’s popular co-worker who is sweet, handsome, and intelligent. He appears to be a nearly perfect character and will get entangled in a relationship with Yumi.
Jinyoung commented about his new drama, “My first time filming was a touching experience thanks to everyone who treated me comfortably on set. I conversed a lot with the director about my character Babi. Studying my character diligently allowed me to naturally become a part of that space.”
“Yumi’s Cells” is directed by Lee Sang Yeob, the director of “Familiar Wife” and “Shopping King Louie,” and co-written by “Find Me in Your Memory” writer Kim Yoon Joo and newcomer Kim Kyung Ran. “W” and “Memories of the Alhambra” writer Song Jae Jung has participated as a creator.
The drama will premiere sometime this year via tvN and is set to air across multiple seasons.
While waiting, watch Jinyoung in "The Devil Judge"!
