“One must live the way one thinks or end up thinking the way one has lived.” – Paul Valery
Hello, this is Moon Swings. I would like to make a sad but exciting announcement that may surprise you.
Despite the rough three years, I am still chasing my dream fearlessly. Through the many failures and my constant dependency towards my family at Brand New Music, I looked at myself in the mirror and made this decision [to leave Brand New] with the help of Rhymer hyung and co.
An ambitious individual does not simply live their life yelling “I’ll do it. I’ll do it. I’ll do it” on repeat! I learned so much through Brand New, including the realization that the journey is still long ahead. Please continue to support Brand New, and welcome me to the big league. Thank you so much.
