Together with Japanese group, V6 and KAT-TUN’s producer Steven Lee, Kim Hyun Joong involved himself in the album-making just to reveal more of himself as a solo artist. Break Down boasts a total of six songs, with one instrumental version of the title track.
The title track BREAK DOWN is a powerful synthesized song with an urban style which features a stylish rapping of South Korea’s Double K; and Ken Lewis, as the single’s producer. Ken Lewis is the producer of Eminem, Kanye West, Usher and John Legend. The music video for Break Down was simultaneously released with the single’s digital release.
Marking his comeback to the music scene, the album also boasts the previously released single PLEASE in which Kim Hyun Joong portrayed a different and mature image in his music video. Other album highlights include Intro (Let Me Go) where Kim Hyun Joong opens with a magnificent pipe organ melody. Also in the album is the song Kiss Kiss another pop/dance song but accompanied with an acoustic guitar and dance-y beat Yes I Will.
