But as a solo artist, Baekhyun has a different set of goals.

I want to express various things with my voice, but at the same time, I want to be an artist who can give listeners a sense of stability.

— Baekhyun

Baekhyun just released his third mini-album, “Bambi”, and he described it to be his last gift to fans before his 30s and his military enlistment.

It’s already been 10 years since Baekhyun debut as a singer, and ahead of his 30s, Baekhyun looked back on his time with EXO, which played a major role in his 20s.

I feel like we did a lot of music that sounded like we were smashing everything into pieces. EXO songs are very high and difficult. They’re full of passion.

— Baekhyun

And according to Baekhyun such an experience during his 20s helped him to find his own sound.

After a long time with EXO, I naturally developed many tones. I can change my tone depending on the mood of the song. I think I’m optimized for R&B.

Baekhyun has developed his own signature R&B sound over the years, and that’s one of the things he’s proud of.

Many people around me tell me that there’s a new Baekhyun genre. That makes me proud.

— Baekhyun

Following his successful 20s, Baekhyun revealed his new goals for his upcoming 30s.

I want to make a lot of music that makes people comfortable without needing to go high with the notes.

— Baekhyun
