After making a debut on November 5th, 2019, DAWN finally returned on October 9th with his first mini-album DAWNDIDIDAWN, which includes collaborations with Jessi and Crush. The track lead, “DAWNDIDIDAWN,” is a hip-hop track written by PSY, DAWN, Jessi, and D.Ark and composed by PSY, Yoo Gun Hyung, and PENOMECO.
The music video also featured Jessi and was released on the same day. The music video has generated more than 4 million views and 33K comments less than a week after its release.
Ahead of his comeback, he opened up about the album and his personal life for W Korea‘s October issue on October 2nd, 2020. DAWN said, “It’ll be very different,” he added. “It’s a hip-hop track, but the arrangement is really minimalistic. It keeps going with just a drum and bass. It’s a song that introduces me. That’s why the first verse says, ‘My name is DAWN.’ I do some very subtle boasting here and there too [laughs]. For example, saying that I’m usually quiet but if I get on stage then I become a ‘psycho’ like PSY.”
He also shared his passion for music with the magazine. “I want to write songs that as many people as possible will be able to relate to,” he said. “There are so many songs in the world that are pleasing to the ears. In that way, I want to write a children’s song too at some point. Also, I think that love is the most important thing in life. Including love between a couple, love for parents, and more widely, even love for the Earth’s environment,” he went on.
Regarding his relationship with Hyuna, he commented, “People sometimes watch Hyuna and me on a variety show and say, ‘It’s a cat who’s tired and lethargic after playing with its butler,’ and it’s exactly like what people see.” In Korea, cat owners are often jokingly referred to as “butlers” or “servants” for their cats.
“I’m relaxed and calm about everything,” he added. “On the other hand, Hyuna is always overflowing with energy. I think maybe I bring some stability to Hyuna. Not in terms of material things, but mental stability,” he said with a little laugh.
