Update their appearance in the TV reality show Kingdom: Legendary War, SF9 are entering a new era in their careers with confidence as leader Youngbin attended a recent showcase. Korea Herald. A group of nine children, such as Inseong, Jaeyoon, Dawon, Zuho, Rowoon, Taeyang, Hwiyoung and Chani, with the experience and influence gained during the program, would find it harder than ever to maintain speed.
The number nine is said to represent “finality, not finality” in numerology Numerology.com. “Think about it in a more cyclical sense,” the author says. “It’s about the end of one cycle and the opportunities it creates for the beginning of another cycle.” So it’s time for SF9 to start a new cycle with its rounds ninth Tear Over is a mini-album, six tracks starting with a track called Tear Drop. According to Taeyang, the group “tak[e] turning away from the men’s performances in their signature, ”instead of choosing a“ sexless feeling ”to the choreography, he explained:“ Our focus was on getting rid of what we had done before. “
Interestingly, this change can be felt even in the song itself. Where is their 2018 solitude ‘Now or never’ carried attractive sexiness and their triumphant 2020 solitude “Good guy” ruthless appeal (“Look carefully / Don’t miss me / ‘The reason is me [a] good guy “), ‘Tear Drop’ seems more passive or even slightly different in its position. Perhaps this can be interpreted as a response to the distortion: to keep a brave face after the truth and before the truth emerges (“I pretend to be well-behaved, I’m cool-tempered / pretends to be / But you and I say goodbye,”). Deviating from this usual demand, the song may turn out to be “a little weak,” as Xiyoung openly puts it. in conversation with Soompi, but this deviation can only be seen as part of their search for themselves.
There’s always some power in weakness – so get into a combination of one or two shots from producers Daniel Kim and Al “Geek Boy” Svettenham. The duo was responsible for “Good Guy” and “Now Or Never,” which will help SF9 brand the sounds heard on their title tracks over the past few years. So it’s no surprise that their music appeals to them to add a Midas musical addition: a whimsical sound landscape that penetrates the dark and deep house veins, and ultimately a very pleasing mash-up.
For a song with a seemingly “minimalist” sound, “Tear Drop,” especially until the end, seems to have become a very busy track as rapper Zuho tries to behave against other promotional vocal parts of the baritone. The bars on his fourth track, “Off My Mind,” are also in crisis, as his over-the-top rhythms don’t quite match the ongoing tone, resulting in a chaotic and resonant cacophony. Surprisingly, if it’s lyrics, he knows it too – My head hurts from dizziness something to go for. Careful use of the technique adds an interesting sense of curiosity, just like the turn on the track, which ends with “Hey Hi Bye” synth-rice.
Despite the rhythmic gaff, “Off My Mind” is an uplifting and catchy number that makes the song stand out as usual (its Korean name “haja haja haja byeol byeol jam” can be freely translated as “Let’s Break Break”) . “It’s better than I lost touch with you,” he said. Taeyang emphasizes that it is really important, “You’re not like me, we don’t fit, there are so many excuses”. Interestingly, this song comes out after the compromising song “Love Again”. (“I’m sorry / I forgot because of a small misunderstanding / We need to be together”); the stories usually help to enhance the album flow, so it seems a bit strange how the sequence happens in reverse here.
The album’s pièce de resistor is undoubtedly “The Believer” (Korean name: “sum” or “Nafas”), which is the same song performed by SF9. Kingdom final. His expressive words (“Going out into the darkness and the endless labyrinth / My scared heart seems to suffocate every night”) and the delivery of emotions is mandatory, and the group has every reason to be proud of having put it to the test. The lyrics in the song are probably something the guys themselves remember, especially the songs of Jaeyoon, Dawoon and Rowoon: “But you are one of their reasons / you want to believe me / I will not give up, I will stand again, a new beginning.”
“Kingdom It was a turning point for us, ”Chani, the youngest member, added at the end of the program. return showcase he also learned that “SF9 has no limitations.” Although there are limits to the work of others that can move a group; While there are shining tracks on Turn, unfortunately SF9 doesn’t allow for questionable choices from others. Seeing how the rap line (Youngbin, Zuho, Hwiyoung and Chani) has added to the songs on all their mini-albums, the guys can continue to refine and continue their musical features, even in the future on their own. can present songs written or composed. releases.
As the saying goes, wealth supports the brave. For SF9, it’s up to them to boldly move forward in drawing their own unique musical tracks – and in turn, of course, become the authors of their own destinies.
