DAWN makes his long awaited comeback with his new mini-album “DAWNDIDIDAWN” on 9 October 2020. The mini album consists of a total of 5 tracks including the title tracks “DAWNDIDIDAWN” featuring Jessi which was released along with a music video. The mini-album also features artist CRUSH for the B-side track “Still”.

DAWN made his solo debut in 2019 with the song “Money” under P nation. He was one of the members of the group Pentagon with the stage name “Edawn” before leaving the group and making his solo debut.

The album is a statement that DAWN wants people to listen to and remember. He is making his presence and current identity visible by drawing a line between DAWN (his personality on stage) and Hyojong (his true self). The album is also quite special and personal to DAWN as he worked on both lyrics and production for all of the track

The title track “DAWNDIDIDAWN” featuring Jessi, is a hip-hop song with a moombahton twist from the bridge of the song when Jessi begins her rap verse. The base for the song was built with a hip whistle riff and strong drumbeats backed by 808 produced bass beats. The lyrics of the song take elements and references of artists under P nation like DAWN himself during the time of its making- PSY, Hyuna, Crush and Jessi.

The video is dance oriented to showcase the best of DAWN who is known for his style in dance. The video employs minimalism with black and white dominating throughout the video in outfits and stage. Throughout the video he exudes a cool, hip and a slightly psychotic attitude.
