Se7en, who recently made a comeback despite negative public opinion after the controversial incident during his military service, recently sat down with TV Daily for an interview.
During the interview, Se7en often used the words like, 'responsibility' and 'pressure.' Although he was clearly feeling those two, he did not hide his satisfaction about the new album. Se7en stated, "Because I put a lot of effort and work into the album, I am satisfied with the result...The album has a lot of meaning for me. It is my first time doing it by myself, so I was able to do everything I wanted to and expressed myself."
However, the public's reception was very cold. Music charts and online communities rated and reviewed the album harshly. It seemed that there needs to be more time for Se7en to approach the public with this music.
Regarding that, Se7en explained, "It's not like I didn't see it coming. I did not expect to convince everyone with the first album. Because I expected it to some degree, I am less hurt."
He added, "It isn't easy to change people's minds in one go. This is just the beginning so I hope to get there step by step. That's my goal...But at least during this promotion, I went on talk / variety shows and got on stage. Not many people, but some people are reconsidering me, for which I am thankful. I think if I continue this way, things will change little by little."
Se7en also stated, "I cannot be too active on broadcasting but I am trying to do it a little bit, an appropriate amount. 'Happy Together' was filmed 3 weeks before my comeback, so I think I was very nervous, especially because it was my first time back on the air. I am being selective with the shows though because I can't be on the ones that are too aggressive...Since I am doing longer promotions unlike before, I want to be on good shows and be on air for a long time."
