    “A Penetrating Glance” by Praha, a dramatic orchestral piece, simply starts out the album. It automatically proceeds to a rockish track, surprising me with its mystifying tune. “Laugh” is a steady beat ballad that illustrates Kan Jong Wook’s vocal nicely. Track 5 is a leisure ballad track, sounding wonderful to the ears. After listening to the album, I realized why Kan Jong Wook’s album is titled “Life is Drama.” His voice is those type of voices that fits perfectly well in OSTs and this album he shares with us is full of dramatic melodies uniting with his affecting vocals. Each song is filled with striking passion and all songs fit well with each other. Overall, I felt that album was nicely executed and makes me certain to keep an eye on Kan Jong Wookk’s further music releases.


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.
3/5 – If you’re a fan of this artist/group, you might want to add this one to your collection.
2/5 – I don’t think a fan would even buy this.
1/5 – You might as well just flush your money down the toilet.
