Micky also wrote and composed "Sarang Annyeong Sarang (Love Bye Love)" (사랑 안녕 사랑), featured on the group's fourth Korean studio album Mirotic.[6] For the Trick project, he wrote the lyrics to his solo "My Girlfriend", entirely in English.[7] "Kiss the Baby Sky", one of the A-side's for TVXQ's twenty-fifth Japanese single, marked the first time that one of the songs both written and composed by Micky was released on a Japanese single.[8]

With band-mates U-Know and Xiah, Micky wrote the rap lyrics to "Love After Love", which appeared on their second Korean studio album, Rising Sun.
