K-pop idol Wonho just released his debut solo single and music video titled ‘Losing You’.
'Losing You' is the first release off his upcoming solo debut album, Love Synonym #1: Right For Me, which is slated for release on 4 September. The single also marks his first musical project since his Monsta X departure in 2019.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Wonho describes ‘Losing You’ as "a love song" and also shares that "it is [about] the love and appreciation I have for my fans as well.” He continues with “I’m here today because of them, and the thought of losing them was the hardest thing I could think of.”
The emotional music video, which now has over 230,000 views since its premiere, begins with a black and white close-up of Wonho tearing up and the rest of the melancholic video continues to show the raw and vulnerable side of the solo artist.
In celebration of the music video premiere, Wonho held a watch party on YouTube, as well as a Twitter Q&A with his fans earlier today.

Wonho also took the short Twitter chat as an opportunity to send his thanks and love to all his fans who waited for his return and supported his first solo outing.
