Despite his depression, he realized that he had to overcome it: “I said to myself, ‘I need to get organized’.” After visiting his parents and receiving the rest he needed and created the album “Family and Friends.”
One song in the album that has been gaining a lot of attention was a song titled after BLACKPINK’s Rosé, as Park Chaeyoung which is Rosé’s real name.
