Music Drama – After…Break Up OST (September 24)

After the huge success of the music drama Winter Story starring Shinhwa’s Eric Mun, here comes the sequel. After Break Up is an album with a unique concept that brings music and video together into a short music drama. The title song, "After Break Up", showcases a mid-tempo ballad combining the soulful sultry sound of The Name and the controlled powerful vocals of Choi Jin Yi, the lead singer of Rumble Fish. Critics and peers alike have raved about the remarkable harmony that was cooked up by this duo. As an added bonus, Music Drama – After Break Up includes a modified version of the title song with string instrumentation.

The second track, First Love, is a duet by Shim Eun Jin and songwriter/producer Vink, who is well known in the industry for songs like M.C. The Max’s Returns and Shin Hye Sung’s Island. First Love is written, produced, and arranged by Vink. Other tracks include recent hits "Love Throws Away Love" (Track 3) from M.C. The Max, "I Cry" (Track 4) from Son Ho Young, and "Three People" (Track 6) from Lee Ki Chan.

After Break Up features a music drama directed by Cho Soo Hyun, whose credits include music videos for Rain, SE7EN, Big Bang, Shinhwa, Clazziquai, and Park Hyo Shin. The drama centers around the jealous love triangle between a woman and two men, played by Lee Min Ki (A Day for An Affair) and former Sechskies and J-Walk member Jang Su Won. Making his acting debut, Jang comes back after a long five-year absence since the release of J-Walk’s second album. – credits to YesAsia

Black Pearl (2nd single) – In the End…It’s You (released)

1) In the End…It’s You

Female group Black Pearl, who have gained much love with their debut single I Can’t Help Liking You, have released their second single, In the End…It’s You. This sad melodic track is written by Min Kyung Gi, who is also known for composing Gavy NG’s Happiness and SG Wannabe’s Stay. – credits to motoway065

Park Ki Young (single) – I was Sorry (released)

1) I was Sorry
2) Guard (2007 Remake)
3) Camino

Park Ki Young’s I Was Sorry is probably as inspiring as her first single (with songs, Start and Last Love) where she received much love. The title track I Was Sorry shows Park Ki Young’s total change as it has a very addictive melody that will seep right into the listeners. This track was specially written for Park Ki Young by Han Sang Won, who is also known for composing, J’s With Tears and Bada’s Queen. I Was Sorry is about a girl trying to forget her love but crumbles once she hears the phrase "I Love You". It gives lots of strength to those that feel stupid in front of love. Park Ki Young has successfully remade the song, Guard and with Camino which is of rock genre, this new single of perfection, something different from other singers’ digital singles. – credits to motoway065
