All of the songs were composed and written by none other than the singer, although most with co-composers and arrangers.

The album is Lee’s first solo effort and will be his last before a looming hiatus in music career.

He is to begin his mandatory military service on Feb. 7. Before enlistment, he will hold solo concerts in Seoul on Feb. 2 and 3.

“Hutazone” will release at 6 p.m. Monday.

The duo started the livestream with no introduction, kicking it off with, “Isn’t V Live already starting?”

“Aren’t there already so many fans watching?”

“Hasn’t it been a while (since we last did V)?” DK, or Kim Dong-hyuk, said.

“Haven’t we had a bad day at work today?” Bobby continued.

“Aren’t we almost short on phone battery for us to do this for a long time?”

They insisted on speaking only in negative questions, although fans started to question whether they had been drinking.

“Aren’t we sane? Aren’t we drinking coffee now?” Bobby asked with laughter.

The 13-minute livestream ended with the duo saying “Aren’t we loving you all?”
