The five members of SS501 are back together as a group for their activities in Japan and also for their upcoming Asian Tour.

Until recently, the members had been busy with their separate activities: Kim Hyun-joong was filming “Boys Over Flowers,” Park Jung-min was appearing in the musical “Grease,” and Kim Hyungj-oon, Kim Kyu-jong and Heo Young-saeng performed under the sub unit group.

SS501’s second Japanese album, which was release on May 13 and entitled “All My Love,” shows off a more mature side of the members’ vocal skills.

All 13 songs included in the album are performed in Japanese. The new album contains a song that sends a message of hope to a loved one; the ballad “Mermaid,” performed by Park Jung-min; the single “Lucky Days,” which entered the Oricon weekly chart last year, and “Get Along,” which was strongly recommended by the CEO of SS501’s agency, DSP Media.

The title track, “All My Love,” had drawn the spotlight even before the album’s release because it is SS501’s first a capella song. Park Jung-min said he and his band mates doubted their ability to perform the song when they first heard about it, but at the same time they believed they had to try it. Kim Hyunjoong, the leader of SS501, said the group practiced hard to perfectly convey the warmth of the song.

On May 17, SS501 held a handshaking event for its fans at the TFT Hall in Tokyo to mark the release of its new album and attended by 7000 of Triple S Japan (TSJ).

Next on August 13, the group will hold two concerts at the Budokan Hall for the first time as part of its Asian concert tour.

I want to grab a copy of this Japanese album ^^
