Roy Kim admitted he delayed his comeback due to the rush of strong comebacks in April.

He and CNBLUE's Yonghwa were guests on 'Please Take Care of My Refrigerator' on the 3rd. The MCs asked Roy Kim about his comeback, and he said, "I'm thinking about early May." Kim Sung Joo said, "We heard it was supposed to be April," and Roy Kim admitted, "There are way too many strong comebacks at the end of April."

Yonghwa mentioned IU, and Roy Kim admitted she was the reason. Yonghwa then said, "[CNBLUE] always goes on head-to-head. Before, we had a song called 'Can't Stop', and it came out during a similar time with Girls' Generation and 2NE1. We just met them head on, but...." He trailed off and added, "We had a decent response, but I realized we'd have done better if we timed it more. Going head-to-head isn't always the answer."

    This worked really well in the past, but nowadays its getting a bit dangerous cos there are too many strong groups, so if u wait too long, u'll get broke :( But then again i guess since he's in the ballad genre, he just has to watch out for other ballads :)

    This tactic isn't that uncommon though it's more often reserved when going up against powerhouses like Big Bang or DBSK when they were 5. It seems a little preemptive to do so because of IU. Then again, she does do fairly well, at least she did.

    IU and Roy Kim are digital powerhouses. IU even more so as she is dominating charts right now with just a pre-released single so he's actually being pretty smart.

    Thank you for the information. I'm more familiar with IU than him, though not in recent years. I agree, it seems like a smart move.
