How GOT7’s Mark Tuan got his groove in solo album

When GOT7’s contract with JYP Entertainment expired in 2021, the group’s members decided not to renew. They agreed to take a break from the group and pursue solo careers.

Mark Tuan was clueless.

The US-born, Taiwanese K-pop artist admitted he had no idea how to start his solo album, following a hiatus with his group GOT7.

“I went into the studio without knowing what exactly I wanted to write about. Then I was like, ‘You know what? Let’s just write about how I felt back then,” the 29-year-old rapper/singer-songwriter said in an interview with StyleCaster.

The Other Side, Tuan’s 20-track debut album, is about his musical journey — from being scouted in 2010, to moving out from Los Angeles to South Korea and joining GOT7.

“It was really hard for (me to work on) this project because it took some time to get it (to a place where) people can relate to it while still telling my story. I like listening to songs I can relate to, and I do want my listeners to relate to (my album) in certain ways,” Tuan told Elite Daily.

Tuan will hold a promotional tour for The Other Side, which kicks off in North America. This will also be his first solo tour which, he said, is going to be different after touring with a group.

The Other Side is on digital platforms. For more information on Tuan’s tour, visit marktuan.com/marktuan/tour.
