KINO established his music label NAKED and started his new venture as a solo artist after seven years with K-Pop group, Pentagon.
On December 15, NAKED opened its official social media accounts revealing the label’s logo. The meaning behind NAKED” is KINO’s aspiration to “get close to music audiences by being truthful and being himself.”
I am very excited to start my journey with NAKED. I cannot wait to share never-before-seen side of KINO to you all, so stay tuned.-KINO
Alongside the launch, the label released photos themed around the brand’s future direction. In the first batch, the imagery of youth and freedom was the theme, portraying a twentysomething’s regular off day at the beach with friends.
KINO has been active on the music-production side, working with various artists. The latest release was “How it was” with Italian artist, Fudasca, where he wrote lyrics and featured his vocals. Additionally, KINO impressed audiences with his fine art and dance skills by performing on an art-performance TV show “Art Road” alongside AIKI and Henry.
KINO is scheduled to have multiple solo live shows. KINO’s housewarming party show will be held on December 22 in Tokyo, Japan, and his BORN NAKED show will be held on January 27, 2024 in Seoul, Korea.
