ENHYPEN just made their comeback with their third mini album, Manifesto: Day 1, and fans love every part of it, especially lyricist Jake.
Manifesto: Day 1 is particularly special to the group, with leader Jungwon noting that they each took part in making the album.
All the members participated in the album making, from lyric writing and production to the storyline.
Jake, in particular, is receiving praise for his input. When fans first noticed that the Australian member had been credited as a lyricist on the song “SHOUT OUT,” they were thrilled.
Jake has expressed interest in writing and composing, and fans are happy he was given this chance.
Jake’s participation on the track has even earned him first KOMCA (Korea Music Copyright Association) credit.

When taking on this challenge, Jake looked to the fans for inspiration.
I remember when I first got the demo, the [producers] told us this song was going to be the song where we can really connect with our fans, so when writing the lyrics I was really imagining interacting with ENGENEs and performing in front of them. When I heard that my lyrics got chosen, I was very honored.
It’s safe to say ENGENEs are loving “SHOUT OUT.”
