Korean-American singer John Park, who was a semi-finalist on season nine of “American Idol,” and the runner-up of the local singing audition program “Superstar K2,” has announced that he will record a Korean version of his recently released English single “Sipping My Life Away.”

“I had been working on my first full album for the past year and a half, and it was my first attempt at writing and composing some of my own songs,” Park announced on his agency’s website. “As the popularity of ‘Sipping My Life Away’ grew, I thought to myself maybe I should consider rewriting the lyrics and release a Korean version of the single so that the local fans can enjoy it even more.”

Park released his first studio album, titled “Inner Child,” on July 3. The all-Korean album features 10 tracks, with the English single “Sipping My Life Away,” which he wrote and composed himself, added as a bonus track. The solo artist said that he would unveil the Korean version of his track on Aug. 19.
