YG Entertainment’s newest solo artist Kang Seung Yoon, a former “Super Star K 2” contestant, released his debut single yesterday, “It Rains,” which swept local music charts.

As of the morning of July 17 KST, “It Rains” was first on nine real-time music charts: Melon, Olleh Music, Daum, Naver, Cyworld, Soribada, Bugs, Mnet, and Monkey3.

YG Entertainment commented, “Even though Kang Seung Yoon received a lot of love through ‘Super Star K,’ it is still meaningful that the song was released without previous promotions.”

It continued, “’It Rains’ is a track through which listeners can appreciate Kang Seung Yoon’s rich voice. It goes particularly well with the continuous rainy weather.”

Kang Seung Yoon will release his next single, “Wild and Young,” near the end of this month and a mini album in September. He will also participate in YG Entertainment’s new survival audition program, “Win,” to pick the agency’s next boy group.
