“It took some time because we needed constant evaluation in order to make good songs and a good album,” he said (via Soompi). “The tough thing was the conflict between not having enough time despite all the things I wanted to do. We had to keep negotiating what to make our main focus.”
“I think that I achieved a balance between something new and what I wanted to do.”
