Iron has announced his first album ‘ROCK BOTTOM‘ and revealed the track list just now.
Update: Both posts about the upcoming album have been deleted from Iron’s Instagram.
He posted this long text on Instagram yesterday, apologizing to and thanking his fans (translation below):
“안녕하세요 아이언입니다. 잘 지내셨나요…? 그동안 기다려줘서 너무 고마워요… 사실 팬분들에게 항상 죄스러운 마음뿐이라…점 찍은것도 장난같아 미안합니다. 아마추어 때 쇼미더머니 나오고 반짝 인기 얻어서 곡 하나 달랑 내고 1년 감감 무소식이다가 대마초나 피우고… 또 system이라는 곡 하나 달랑 내고 또 무소식으로… 팬들에게 먼저 말하고 먼저 용서를 구하고 싶었는데 구차한 변명보다 음악으로 말하고 싶었습니다. 용서해주세요. 방송 이후 얻은 유명세. 그리고 저 또한 돈 벌려고 화장하고 입기 싫은 옷, 머리 억지로 하고 거짓 웃음 짓고 착한 척하고 살았었습니다. 그리고 보란듯이 다가온 시련들은 그 누구의 탓도 아닌 제가 만든 잘못들이었으니 달게 받아들이자고 생각했습니다. 그 때부터 세상과 단절한 채 살았습니다. 그리고 제가 보여줄 수 있는 건 오로지 음악이라는 생각에 계속 가사를 써내려가고 랩을 반복했습니다. 처음 소리를 내는 법부터 처음 내가 랩을 좋아하던 그 때로 돌아가 내 자신을 처음부터 갈고 닦는 시간을 보내다 보니 어느덧 1년을 훌쩍 넘는 시간이 지났고 이제야 제 첫 앨범을 내게 되었습니다. 긴 시간 동안 여러분들의 응원덕에 초심 되찾고 여기까지 올 수 있었기에 앞으로는 제 음악으로 또 제 삶으로 그 은혜에 대한 보답 보여드릴게요. 못난 놈 좋아해줘서 고마워요. 2016년 9월 5일 정헌철 올림”

“Hello, this is Iron. Have you been well…? Thank you very much for waiting all this time… Actually, I always feel apologetic towards my fans… I am sorry that all the dots seem like I’m kidding.
As an amateur, I participated in Show Me The Money and gained a lot of popularity. Then after releasing merely one track there were no news about me at all for one year and suddenly [you hear that] I stupidly smoked marijuana… Then I released only one track, ‘System‘, and again no news…
I wanted to tell my fans first and ask for your forgiveness first, but instead of shabby excuses I wanted to do so through music. Please forgive me.
The fame I gained after being on TV. And in order to earn money I was put on make-up, clothes, and hairstyles I did not like, I had to put on a fake smile and pretend to be a good boy. And as you can see, the ordeals I subsequently went through are no one’s fault but my own, so I accepted them.
Since then, I lived isolated from the world. And thinking that the only thing I can prove myself with is music, I kept writing lyrics and rapping. Going back to the first time I was able to speak and the time when I started getting into rap, I spend the time improving myself and before I knew, more than one year had passed and only now I am releasing my first album. Thanks to your support, I was able to retrieve the reason why I started doing hiphop in the first place and come this far. So, I will repay that favor from now on through my music and my life. Thank you for liking someone as foolish as me.
September 5, 2016, Jung Hunchul”
