On December 2nd Kim Jong-kook announced via his fan website that “It has been 20 years since Jong-nam and I first started creating music together. My good friend Mark joined up for our final album in the year 2000. Now we are back together for our 6th Turbo album.”
About the 15 year return of Turbo Kim Jong-kook said, “I worried a lot about this. And was concerned if returning to music might damage the good memories we and the fans have of Turbo. So we came to this decision after my contemplation.”
“While making this album we had a lot of fun and really enjoyed ourselves. For those waiting for my individual album I don’t know if this is bad news for you, but I think those who enjoy my individual music will actually like this Turbo album even more than that. I can promise you that without reservations.” He said, soliciting support.
The band of 20 years includes the trio Kim Jong-kook, Kim Jong-nam, and Mark. Their new Turbo album is scheduled to go on sale on the 21st.
