This Album

Project album, Missy Ballad returns with its third
installation of hit ballads. This 2 CD, 30-track album includes favorite
ballads from Korea’s top artists including MC the Max, Alex & Horan
(Clazziquai), Buzz, Jo Sung Mo, and Jang Hye Jin to name a few. There
are an assortment of ballads, some lighthearted in feeling, while others
are emotional love songs from popular drama series, all of which are
perfect for the winter season.

“Are There Any Men Like This,”
sung by Lee So Eun would be a great example of a happy-go-lucky ballad
number. With bubbly beats, this cute song is about wondering where one’s
perfect half may be. Her sweet vocals portray this feeling well. Sweet
Sorrow’s “I Told You I Love You” on the other hand is a bit more
touching. Originally from the drama series, Bad Couple, this song
expresses unfailing love. The beautiful piano melody accompanies with
the vocals accordingly. Those more into K-pop can try out Shinhwa
member, Jun Jin’s “Forever,” a medium- tempo duet number or Tim’s “Hurt
My Ankle,” which showcases his sweet vocals.

Missy Ballad’s third
volume has a mix of some of Korea’s great ballads that I think most
K-pop listeners may not be familiar with. Those in the mood of some
relaxing beats can pop in this album without much disappointment.
