On the January 24 airing of 'Cultwo Show', Kangnam appeared as a guest and was asked how he came to start promoting in Korea. He answered, "My label CEO cast me from Japan and that's how I came." Kangnam then mentioned the recent disbandment of M.I.B, saying, "But things didn't work out well as a singer, so the debt is incredibly huge. That's why we had to disband."
He also shared plans for a solo album, and said, "Currently, I'm focusing on variety shows and I plan to release an album around June-July."
