On February 20, fashion magazine 'Singles' presented a series of images featuring the singer wearing a trench coat and leather jumper posing charismatically underneath the night sky. In his interview, Hwang Chi Yeol commented on not receiving the spotlight for nine years, "The 9 years of being a nobody wasn't a time I just want to erase."
He continued, "In fact, it's a precious experience that shaped who I am today. I think my mentality got stronger because of it. Even when I had no money in my pocket, I thought to myself, 'I can do it,' 'I'll succeed,' and I didn't give up."
