Super Junior’s Ryeowook Collaborates with Bada for SM Station

Super Junior vocalist, Ryeowook, has collaborated with solo singer, Bada, for “Cosmic,” released on this week’s SM Station.

News came out that Ryeowook will be enlisting in the military very soon, so this is one of his last releases as an artist before he leaves to serve.

As expected, Bada and Ryeowook‘s beautiful voices create a harmony fitting for the song.

Check it out below, and don’t forget to give Ryeowook your best wishes!

{MV/Album Review} Ryeowook is “The Little Prince” in his solo debut!

Like all of you probably know, Ryeowook has finally debuted solo! *Screams*
January 27th, 2016 SMTown released the MV for his title song The Little Prince (어린왕자). If you haven’t seen the MV, check it out above!
In this article, we’re going to review the MV and the album, so please sit down because this is going to be a loooong article!


MV + Song
The first scene of the MV is a purple/reddish place and Ryeowook walks by, looking devastated. The song starts with a short accapella verse, while your ears are filled with his voice, piano music is slowly added, and later on they also added some violin to make a bigger impact.
I think the song fits his voice well; It’s a ballad with a lot of high notes, just how he likes it. The MV is also well made, I really love the pieces of text in the MV.

For anyone who doesn’t understand the MV, here’s a small explanation:
The MV and song are based of a children’s book called The Little Prince (Originally written in French). When you look at the book cover, it seems like a normal children’s book, but children and adults are reading it all over the world! They say the book appears different when you read it as a child, than when you read it when you’re an adult. The book is known worldwide for its inspirational story line about not losing your creativity.
I myself, have read the book too. It was about 2 years ago, so I don’t really remember how the book went. The only thing that I remember, is that I cried in my room thanks to that book.
So if you’re curious, maybe read it yourself? 😉


Album

https://i2.wp.com/0.soompi.io/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/25231609/ryeowook-the-little-prince-album-art.png
The album The Little Prince consists of six songs:

01. Like a Star
02. 어린왕자 (The Little Prince) (title)
03. 그대 (Hello)
04. 알 수도 있는 사람 (People you may know)
05. Foxy Girl (Feat. 딘딘, Dindin)
06. 품 (POOM)

01. Like a Star
The first song is a depressing ballad song written by 4beontaja, who has also composed Piano Forest from Kyuhyun. The song is about a man who loves someone a lot, but they’re not together; That’s because the lover is (probably) dead, but the lover is still in the man’s heart. The memories are Like A Star, shining bright but you cannot reach them.

03. 그대 (Hello)
Hello is a medium tempo song with a bit of a retro feeling. The song is written and composed by G-high and GDLO. It’s about a man who has fallen completely for a girl and they’re finally dating. In this song the man express his happiness for the woman and he hopes that she’ll never leave him. I really like the background music, it gives it a funky feeling and makes you really happy! It’s a perfect song for the Spring.

04. 알 수도 있는 사람 (People you may know)
This song is a soft sad ballad track written and composed by Park Chang Hyun. It’s about a man who saw the name of his ex-lover on SNS and can’t forget her, but they act as strangers now. He can’t say hello, he has to say goodbye to her.

05. Foxy Girl (Feat. 딘딘, Dindin)
Foxy Girl is a song featuring Dindin (rapper who has appeared on Real Man and Show Me The Money) and was written and composed by Nuplay (에코브릿지, Isaac Han, Aaron Kim). The song is a medium tempo dance pop track, so this track is different from the others. This song is my personal favorite because the tempo and type of genre is different from most of Ryeowook’s songs. It’s really nice to see another side of him.

06. 품 (POOM)
The album ends with another soft ballad/pop track dedicated to Ryeowook’s Mother. This song is the one and only song where Ryeowook has contributed to writing the lyrics. The song is further composed and arranged by G-high, Asher Park and Song Si Yoon. In this song, he goes back to the time when he still was a child and thanks his mother for staying with him and for the support she gave him.

Overall, I give this album a 8/10. The songs are good, but some may get boring after a couple of listens. The album cover is beautiful, but I wish the picture of Ryeowook was a bit bigger.
