Jo PD, The Day/Jung with Seeya, and Must Have Love with SG Wannabe, is releasing their 2nd album on September 6th. The title track, I Got Fooled By You, has a totally new style. Starting the song off with brilliant strings and brass, you can hear pop music reminiscent of the 70-80’s. Miryo’s rapping makes this song more stylish.
