Kim Woojin teases 'Still Dream' single ahead of solo debut, fans say 'song will be a bop'
Former Stray Kids member Kim Woojin teased the release of his pre-debut solo single 'Still Dream', which is set to tell his story
Former Stray Kids member Kim Woojin is all set to make his solo debut with the digital single ‘Still Dream’ on July 8 before releasing his album, a press release sent to MEAWW by 10x Entertainment stated on Tuesday, June 29. The pre-debut single is set to drop at 6 pm KST (5 am EST).
Woojin was recently in the news on June 29 when Twitter users said that the teaser of his promo film 'Le Chocolatier' used a tweet allegedly posted by a sexual assault victim as an aesthetic. The tweet in question was used as the background of the promo post. The tweet was reportedly posted by an anonymous person who accused Woojin of sexual assault.
Woojin left the band Stray Kids in 2019 citing undisclosed “personal” reasons, which did leave fans with many questions. The K-pop star was accused of sexual harassment by an anonymous Twitter user in September 2020. However he, along with 10x Entertainment, has since denied all allegations.

As a result, the excitement for the approaching official premiere was heightened even more with the release of this teaser shot.

'Still Dream,' Woojin's first pre-debut single, tells the story of him pursuing his dream despite obstacles, and it also conveys the singer's aspirations and emotions ahead of his debut. Because it contains his own story, the artist is expected to personally participate in the lyrics-writing process. Not just that, the well-known producer Ryan Jeon, and hit song creator Ryan S Jhun, who has written for EXO, NCT and LOONA, is collaborating with the songwriter to improve the track's perfection.
Woojin has shared a variety of pre-debut content on his official channel, including visual films like 'Le Chocolatier' and cover live videos, and has already surpassed 2M subscribers on social media, attracting the attention of global admirers. His podcast 'wooAlog' recently got a lot of attention from fans throughout the world including topping the Spotify Music Podcast Mexico chart.
