Our featured artiste this week is R&B group Wanted. They had a highly acclaimed debut album in 2004 with the top 10 hit "Attack". Member Ha Dong Kyun also had a successful solo debut last year with the No. 1 song "Please Love Her". But this group has gone through a lot over the years. It hasn't been an easy road for Wanted, but they are finally making a comeback with their second album. After releasing their debut album Like the First in 2004, the group lost member Suh Jae Ho, who passed away in a tragic car accident. Quiet for the last three years, Wanted has regrouped in 2007 with new member and longtime friend Lee Jung. Like the late Suh Jae Ho and members Ha Dong Kyun and Jeon Sang Hwan, Lee Jung was originally a part of the group 7Dayz, which debuted in 2002 but disbanded shortly afterwards. Meanwhile, Wanted leader Kim Jae Suk also originally made his debut in 2002 with the group 4U. The four members of Wanted have gone through a lot together in the last five years, and this new album is a testament to both their passion for music and the strength of their friendship.

Wanted's new 15-track album is a great showcase of the group's strong, harmonic vocals. Written and composed by Choi Kab Won and Lee Hyung Jung, first plug "I Promise You" is a sad and touching ballad, while second plug "Wonderful Days" is a harmonic, mid-tempo number that highlights Lee Jung's voice. All four members contribute a solo track, with Baek Ji Young featuring in Kim Jae Suk's "Live With Tears". Epik High and Lee Bo Young also lend their vocals to the album.
