The next day, on 3 July, more teaser images have been released by Baekhyun's agency in anticipation for his mini-album release on 10 July.
The teaser photos were designed to resemble posters stuck on walls. The images feature a collage of portraits of Baekhyun with a vintage feel thanks to use of grain and paper effects. Overall, the vibe of the photos is moody and nostalgic.
Perhaps the singer will be exploring new alternative R&B sounds in the likes of artists such as 6lack or Korea's own crooner, Dean? Baekhyun certainly has the vocal chops to pursue any genre so we're curious to hear what type of sound the idol has decided on.
Looks like we'll have to wait till 10 July to find out!
