Not only was the album completely sold out for pre-order, the flood of fans logging in at once caused servers to crash.
Key East Entertainment stated that the limited edition album was created to express Kim Hyun Joong’s gratitude for the fans who’ve shown his album much love. The limited edition album will contain merchandise decorated with Kim Hyun Joong’s official character ‘U:ZOOSIN’ and 50 pages of never-before-seen photos.
