03 . 못잊어
04 . 약속 inst


This is Kim Dong Wan’s last release before his entry into the army, and choosing a duet with YounHa in a poignant ballad suits the mood very well. Releases like this are aimed for the fans, especially so in this case as there are pictures of 100 fans on the inside cover. (*coughs* your truly included).

The songs themselves are not long and drawn out and whilst the duet with Younha was the one promoted, I rather prefer the second ballad with its simple piano arrangement that shows off Dongwan’s vocals to their best. The songs are sung with genuine emotion and are touching, sweet and well written, and worth having as a permanent fixture on your playlist.


5/5 – Even if you’re not a fan of this artist/group this album is a must buy.
4/5 – If you’re a fan of this artist/group, you must buy this album.

2/5 – Only a fan would buy this.
1/5 – Even a fan might be disappointed
