The album contains many cover versions that were sung on the TV program “I Am a Singer 2” last year. The tracks include Lee Seung-chul’s “Fate,” Park Hyo-shin’s “Snow Flower” and Kim Kyu-min’s “Old Story,” which have all received many accolades.

The album also includes songs that were not sung on the program: Sung Si-kyung’s “Hee Jae,” Yoon Jong-shin’s “Mo-Churum” and Yoo Young-suk’s “The More I Love You.”
