Singer and actor Eric, formerly a member of boy band Shinhwa, will release his solo mini-album during the latter half of this year, according to his agency Top Class Entertainment.

"Eric is currently working on composing the tracks for his mini-album and has decided that the album will be released sometime during the second half of this year," a PR official from Top Class told 10Asia over the phone on Monday. "The style of music and other details have yet to be finalized."

This will be Eric's return to the local music scene after a three-year hiatus since his group's ninth full-length album "White Edition" released in July 2008.

Eric, whose real name is Mun Chong-hyok, made his debut through Shinhwa in 1998 which had been one of the most popular groups in the country and throughout Asia.

He then pursued a career in acting starting in 2003 and appeared in dramas such as “Strongest Chilwoo (KBS, 2008),” Que Sera Sera (MBC, 2007),” “Korea Secret Agency (SBS, 2006),” “New Employee/ Super Rookie (MBC, 2005)” and “The Phoenix (MBC, 2004).” He also appeared in films “June’s Diary (2005)” and “A Bittersweet Life (2005).”
Eric was discharged from the military in October 2010 and has visited several countries in Asia for his fan meeting tour.
