This is the long-awaited solo debut album from the lead vocalist of the acclaimed Taiwanese band sodagreen. There is imaginative storytelling in this fantastical music adventure, with space being a recurrent theme on tracks such as Spaceman, Space and Spaceship. On one level, the album is a reflection on his identity as a singer-songwriter, a "lonely spaceman" looking in from the outside.

This inaugural K-pop festival has a packed line-up that should appeal to a cross-section of fans. Performing tomorrow are the likes of South Korean girl group GFriend, boy group NCT 127, singer-songwriter Ha Sung-woon and singer-dancer-choreographer Chungha. And appearing on Sunday are boy bands Super Junior and Stray Kids, as well as girl groups Momoland and WJSN.
