Isu of MC the Max is set to return with a new solo album, “Inhale,” on May 16, according to agency 325 E&C, Monday. The singer recently released a short promotional video of the upcoming album via his official social media account. The black-and-white video featured a lyrical piano melody played by Isu himself. The upcoming album marks the singer’s first solo album since his 2008 solo album “I Am.”
The singer received a suspended indictment for buying sex from a minor in 2009, prompting his departure from the entertainment scene. He returned with the group’s seventh album, “Unveiling,” in 2014.
However, Isu was sacked from a musical after being cast in 2016, due to public furor and a boycott of the musical.
Isu will hold sold-out solo concerts from May 18 to June 4 at the Shinhan Card FAN Square in northern Seoul.
“We thank all of you who have long awaited Isu’s new solo album,” said an agency official.
