Bathing in success both in their homeland Korea as well as in Japan, the boys have teamed-up with some potential composers and musicians who were responsible for smashes by SG Wannabe, Wheesung, and Shinhwa’s very own Lee Min Woo and Shin Hye Sung among other top acts. This time’s principal track – Once In a Lifetime no doubt is worth listening to multiple times as it comes in the form of an explosive dance track that has been chosen as official SBS World Cup song. Another recommendable track is Highway Star – a rap song that is accompanied by the seductive vocals of newcomer IVY.
