Wonho, a former member of the K-pop boy group Monsta X, debuted as a solo artist in 2020 with an EP titled Love Synonym Pt.1: Right for Me. The artist’s involvement in the production of the EP, which showcased Wonho’s song-writing abilities, gained praise from his fans, WENEEs, as well as many professionals from within the industry. Wonho’s musical diversity was further displayed in his 2021 releases: Love Synonym Pt.2: Right for Us and Blue Letter.
In February of 2022, Wonho unveiled his first single album, Obsession, featuring the lead single Eye on You. The artist showed that he is brave enough to explore various sides of his music as well as the depths of his own identity. And thanks to his hard work and talent, Wonho is climbing up towards success by using the shifting trends within the K-pop industry to his own advantage.
Although it has been over two years since Wonho’s solo debut, he doesn’t regret his decision: “[I can] show my own music style and colours”, the singer explains in one of his many interviews. The artist is not only known for his talent as a singer-songwriter, but also for his striking visuals. According to the artist, working out helps him to live a healthier and happier life, and he also loves to share his journey with his fans, whether it’s on Instagram or other social media platforms.
In June of this year, Wonho delivered another EP, Facade, with the title track Crazy. To commemorate the release of his newest EP, the artist is gearing up for his first tour – 2022 European Tour Facade. The singer will play in 4 cities: Munich (TonHalle – sold out) and Oberhausen (Turbinenhalle 2 – sold out), Germany on August 28th and 31st respectively, Madrid (Palacio Vistalegre), Spain on September 2nd, and London (Indigo at the O2), UK on September 4th.
Tickets can be purchased via the Onion Production website, including VIP tickets (VIP and GA tickets to the London show are still available) that will allow you to meet the artist face-to-face – an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.
