“JYP is just as hard to please.”
YG artist, Se7en, has held hands with JYP for his recent comeback. The result? Sizzling. His new song, “When I Can’t Sing,” has debuted in first place in various music charts. Seoul Newspaper asked Se7en, seven questions.
Q1. How did you come to work with JYP?
A: I really liked it (the song)
Since long ago, (Park) Jin Young hyung and I am very close, so as a joke we always said, “lets work together.” A while ago, I had a chance to see him again with Yang (Hyun Suk) CEO and (Park Jin Young) played this song for us to listen. After hearing that it has been made a year ago, I thought, “I really like it and want to sing this song.” After choosing the title song, I started working on my album.
Se7en is proud of the groups which can represent the Republic of Korea, Big Bang and 2NE1. He also regards them as his motivation and in this interview, his special affection towards these groups is shown.
Enews has recently conducted an interview with Se7en, he said, “the development of Big Bang and 2NE1 is good, they are the groups that I like very much. I am really proud of these friends.” As one of the representative singers of YG Entertainment, Se7en is a witness of the growth of his juniors, Big Bang and 2NE1.
He continued, “In fact, I am glad that Big Bang and 2NE1 are my juniors and I like them. I always bear them in mind. If my favorite brothers and sisters come back but something bad happens to them, I will be very sad. I hope more good things can happen to them. Now, these friends have climbed to the top spots of the showbiz. Thanks for this, I always prepare myself well because I need to work harder in order to show that I am a great brother to them.”
He concluded, “It can be said that I failed in doing my activities in America; however, it was also an opportunity for me to learn how to be self-independent and responsible. I have become more matured during this period of time so now, I am a little bit more proud when being with my juniors. For Big Bang and 2NE1, it seems that I am their hyung.”

It appeared that Se7en would always be a boy, however now he is nearing his thirties. He is a man who now has ease of mind and confidence.
Se7en started off by saying, “When I checked the music charts I was so happy. I am just thankful that people have not forgotten me, because it has been a long time since I returned to the music scene.”
Se7en stated that the moment he heard JYP’s song, he felt like it would do well.
Big Bang’s G-Dragon appeared as a cameo in the music video for “When I Can’t Sing.” It appears that the clothes that G-Dragon is wearing in the brief scene are actually women’s clothes!
SE7EN released his new mini-album and “When I Can’t Sing” music video earlier today.
Upon the video’s release, SE7EN tweeted,
“Se7en new album [When I can’t sing] Music video OPEN!!! Everybody RT plz!!!“

01. “Somebody Else”
03. “When I Can’t Sing”
04. “That Person”

Considering how the text for “When I Can’t Sing” was highlighted in white, it’s more than likely that this J.Y. Park-produced track will be Se7en’s main song.
