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."

dear fairy7v7, there's no need to explain to this kind of mean and stupid people. There are peoples like raid5 in korea that just making nonsense and brainless harsh comments about him. They won't bother to read or know the "TRUTH". But no worry, they are just making themselves looks stupid and ugly with those brainless comments.

The public will never respect him again... just end your career seven.

aypj Knigin Saturday, October 29, 2016

just shut up your mouth and get out stupid

shyloone Wednesday, October 26, 2016

people just need to learn to appreciate good music, instead of dwelling on the pass scandal of someone..its time to forgive and forget and move on

Key7Mimi shyloone Wednesday, October 26, 2016

I actually like the title, still trying to get into the rest of the album though (lolz), but..what happened? What'd he do?

shyloone Key7Mimi Wednesday, October 26, 2016

people are still not forgiving him im assuming with the military scandal byt going to a massage parlour and getting more than a massage, while he was in the military, and then he broke up with long time Gf over it too

Key7Mimi shyloone Friday, October 28, 2016

Oh! I remember that...I see...well...that's not worth UNRELATED INDIVIDUALS holding a grudge over...

Key7Mimi shyloone Friday, October 28, 2016

So, if that's the case..that's stupid...his ex on the other hand...

se7en always makes quality music. Im glad hes back and set up his own company and he IS making an honest living which is admirable. shame on u all Judgy McJudgersons ppl need to learn to separate music from the artists past mistakes. Life goes on, an artists personal problems/scandals shouldnt b taken to seriously up the butt when its ooooold news and it snot liek hes a murderer/rapist/sexual assaulter. let him breathe

I enjoyed his new album and his music show appearances have been upbeat and intense. Music evolves and so do the people who perform. The important thing is that he is happy with what he has created and that he keeps trying.

Fatimaaxo Wednesday, October 26, 2016

His album was good people are just still salty

Smither Fatimaaxo Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Hmmm.. not that good (past Se7en albums was much better)

There are many reason of "people's cold reaction": 1) Single artist in Korea are now not that popular (see new Ailee comeback) - idol groups trend in kpop 2) Not that easy dying controversies - hatters ammunition 3) big career break 4) artist from non BIG 3 agencies (now he have own agency) 5) too old - Korean are more interested in young idols/artist (sad - but true T_T) 6) song - not that great if you ever listened his past songs
