Check Out AB6IX’s Park Woo-jin’s New Solo Track!
Park Woo-jin is not a new name in the K-Pop scene. Since his appearance in the Mnet survival show Produce 101 Season 2, he has successfully stolen the fans’ hearts here and there. So much that it earned him a spot as one of the members in the final Wanna One line-up.
After promoting Wanna One for one and a half years, Park Woo-jin is back with his new 5-member group, AB6IX. At the beginning of 2020, Brand New Music, the agency of AB6IX revealed that the group would be releasing a special album titled 5NALLY on February 13th, 2020. Different from their previous albums, this album is purely filled with five solo tracks sung and composed by each member of the group. Through this comeback, Woo-jin has had the chance to showcase his musical talent through his solo track “Color Eye.”

Park Woo-jin’s Solo Track—COLOR EYE
In this special album, 5NALLY, all five AB6IX members got the chance to do solo. Not only they perform their own solo songs, but each member also took part in composing and writing their solo song for this album.
After the releases of Jeon-woong’s R&B style track titled “Moondance” followed by the R&B pop genre “More” by Dong-hyun, Dae-hwi’s ft. musician FRANS track “Rose, Scent, Kiss,” and Young-min’s sentimental song “Break Up,” Woo-jin became the fifth members to release his solo track. He collaborated with fellow group member Lee Dae-hwi and producer Lish as a co-composer for a powerful hip-hop solo song titled “Color Eye.” The lyrics are fully written by Woo-jin and Dae-hwi.
Woojin’s “Color Eye” “has a creepy music box intro and is somewhat unsettling” and “the lyrics seem to indicate sometimes that he is unsettled.” It is an overall dark piece, as the writer called it.
The review is kinda right as Woo-jin does really show a strong lyric full of desire and praises at the beginning of the song:
Diverse colors before my eyes right now
Everything about you is beautiful
You are beautiful, yeah yeah P
Put your hands high
Then I’ll make you high, yeah yeah…
Put your hands high
Then I’ll make you high, yeah yeah
Life, our life
When seeing something beautiful, my eyes – they light up
It’s as if I’m looking through tinted glasses
At your dangerous fashion – What
While somehow starting to become creepy and expressing a darker obsession toward the end:
My heart that’s covered by you jumping on it
Is out of control; it’s like pumping
Whatever you’re doing,
I don’t care
My heart is already 100% always your
Originally, the songs in the album 5NALLY were songs that were performed by each member of the group in November 2019 during their 6IXENSE world tour in Seoul. But, in November 2019, Brand New Music announced that Woo-jin suffered a knee injury and a torn meniscus in his right knee. This happened when he made his opening appearance at the 2019 V HEARTBEAT awards. As a result, the former Wanna One member had to undergo knee surgery. Therefore, the agency announced that Woo-jin would be on a temporary hiatus from AB6IX’s promotional activities for this album as part of the post-surgery recovery process.
Though he performed the song incredibly at the concert, he was absent from most of this album’s promotional activities.
The music video for “Color Eye” was released on Thursday, March 12th, 2020, at 18:00 KST, through Brand New Music’s YouTube Channel.
Through this music video for “COLOR EYE,” fans will be spoiled by Park Woo Jin’s rapping action. On top of that, fans can also watch Park Woo Jin’s cool and charismatic appearance throughout the music video.
As expected, netizens are flooding the comment section of his music video with various praises:
“I’m a Dong-hyun bias but really Woojin is the most marketable of the group. He’s an all-rounder that can do anything. His solo is one of my faves, and I look forward to more music :),” another commented.
“He can rap well! He can sing well! He can dance well! He’s handsome too!” and another praised.
