"I had always set my heart on releasing a full-length album as a soloist. I shared my thoughts with my company, and they were positive as well. So the road to releasing my first LP wasn't that much of a hassle," he told the news outlet.

He also touched on the origin of his album concept, introducing a chocolate box-inspired album to fans. Yoseob ultimately used a metaphor and said people have different thoughts and feelings – becoming the K-pop idol's inspiration to his new album.
