Former EXO member Kris records song for upcoming movie soundtrack
Kris returns to C-Pop.
Singer and actor Kris, real name Wu Yifan, plans to lend his beautiful vocals to the original soundtrack of his new movie Somewhere Only We Know. The motion picture, which was filmed in Prague, Czech Republic, will have a signature song written and sung by the former idol himself.
Photos of the star working hard in the recording studio were released online by the movie's production company. The song's title is "There Is A Place," and it is expected to be released on his birthday, November 6.

In Somewhere Only We Know, Kris stars alongside actors Xu Jinglei and Wang Likun. It is about a woman running away to Europe after having her heart broken by her lover. The movie hits theaters on February 14, 2015.
The "Overdose" singer parted ways with his group EXO in May. He filed a lawsuit against his agency, SM Entertainment, to terminate his contract. His first solo track was "Time Boils The Rain" for the soundtrack of the Chinese movie Tiny Times 3 in July.
When it comes to his career, Kris enjoys taking the road less traveled. "[To be] willing to travel down the road no one else has taken," he told Men's Style magazine when asked what was the most important factor to becoming a well-rounded recording artist. "You should work hard on improving yourself and never lose sight of who you are."
