Actor Joo Won will try his luck at breaking into the Japanese music industry.

Through his official Web site www.joowon.net, the 24-year-old announced that he will release a debut single titled “Nadeshiko” on Oct. 10.

The EP will be sold via iTunes and Recochoku and is said to convey “feelings toward a beloved.”

The song is also the theme for the Japanese movie “Bungo,” which opens on Sept. 29.

Since 2010, Joo has appeared in hit dramas, one after the other, from “Bread, Love and Dreams” (2010) to “Ojakyo Family” (2011) and “Bridal Mask,” which ended early this month.

Although he’s better known as an actor of late, the 24-year-old has also dabbled in singing before.

In 2007, he was a part of singing group Free6, which was a group marketed towards young kids.

Although his stint with the coed band was short-lived, Joo also went on to pursue a musical career from 2007 to 2009.He sang on the soundtracks of “Bread, Love and Dreams” and “Bridal Mask.”
