Epik High - Ride (에픽하이)

Hello people. Some of you may know that it is exam period at the moment, so couldn't update as much. I am huge fan of Epik High and personally think 2nd album is the favorite of mine. But turns out 3rd album could be the next big thing for me, prolly because I haven't heard every single song from the album.
This song came up on my shuffle and IT WAS AWESOME!!! just saying.... on my skateboard... heheheh

Featured Korean Singer - Yoo Seung Joon (유승준)


I usually do one song of the day, but since I am probably going to introduce all the song from this artist, why not just have an artist feature. He is Yoo Seung Joon or Yoo Seung Jun or million other ways to spell his name. He is both legendary, infamous, and unfortunate artist ever in Korea. He made his debut in 1997 with the first song above. I believe he was from US and as you can see he has these eyes which are so charismatic and moves that are unbelievably smooth for 1997. Also at the time, there weren't a lot of so called "Handsome" Idols as it was the beginning of the idol era. As soon as he made his debut, he was successful and it was continued on for the next album and the next one as well.


I personally don't know the exact chronological orders of his song, so the second one will be passion. This shows his clear dance skill and swag he had. Many of the songs in the 90s were lip sync, because of all these dance. But according to the title, the first song was a live which is surprisingly awesome.
One of the best thing about him was that he is so charismatic on the stage, but so funny in TV shows. He had huge support from fans and they continued throughout his career.

Hope you find it

Now all the people who remember Yoo Seung Joon from his early career success and knew what he was capable of is saying we lost a talent and he had all these skills and swag way better than the current idols and almost 10 years earlier than them.

The story goes like this. As a Korean, you have to serve the army for about 2 years, however he had US citizenship and when the country called him to the army, he decided to get out of Korea. Of course, Korea is very sensitive to this matter and the news and the media were bombarding him. Now they are very understandable, because he was working at Korea for long time and was very famous. Someone also told me he was promoting the army at one point.

But here comes a huge problem. The country. YES. The government bans him from ever coming back to Korea. I believe he hasn't been back in Korea ever since. Very recently there were couple of TV shows which tried to bring him back in Korea and lift the abandonment, but no one has enough power to go against the government at this point.

Ever since he has been working in China and been bit of a success but I am very sad like many other people that we lost a huge talent which is legend at the moment but could have been the next huge LEEEEEEEEEEEEGEND in Korean music history and I'm just very sad that he left.

I'm not arguing or even supporting him for the actions he took to avoid going to the army. But for government to act in this way when they got all these problem inside their own little group seems very overboard. Anyway, he did do some featuring for couple of Korean hip hop artist couple of years ago, but obviously they can only be contained in the album, and they don't broadcast it through the TV.

And now I leave you with the final song I have for you from him. Na Na Na

Moida Band - Chocolate Drive (모이다밴드 - 초콜릿 드라이브)

This song is familiar to many people who watch SuperStarK. This was the song that Kim Ji Soo sang in his audition. It is what many people thought of him as first (image wise). That sentence doesn't make sense but hopefully you know what I mean. He also did an official cover of this song after the contest ended. Unfortunately many people know the song, but not many know about the band. neither do i so................. you should go google them.

Sun Ye - Maybe (선예)

You probably know this song if you were a huge fan of Dream High. I wasn't and I only knew like one song by IU from that whole drama....... anyway I recently found this new music game called "osu". I absolutely love music games, such as DDR although I still have to go to the actual DDR club. Anyway, I downloaded this song by accident and as soon as I played this song, I loved it. Sun Ye is a member of Wonder Girls who is happily dating a non-celebrity at the moment. Hopefully that goes well and maybe he will be the one. see what i did there?? no? ok......

Dynamic Duo - Girl (다이나믹 듀오 - 해뜰때까지만)

I have been recently searching through some of the Dynamic Duo's old songs and I have no idea how the hell I do not have this album. But anyhow, the song is called "until the sunrise" in Korean, but they have been having both Korean and english titles for their songs. 

Dynamic Duo has always been creating different variety of hip hop music that are both strong and electronic to mellow and smooth. I personally prefer the mellow and smooth flow, but I can't complain about any music they make.
