Released: 2010.02.19

01. Tasty love
02. 루팡(Lupin)
03. Umbrella
04. Rollin’
05. Lonely


    The mini album started off quickly with “Tasty Love” and I was not fascinated with the track. It sounds cute and all but there was just something about it that was a bit unpleasing. Their title track, “Lupin” is a typical K-pop song: beaty, somewhat catchy and honestly, quite boring. It did have a rather nice sounding chorus though. The one and only track that I was captivated with was “Lonely.” It’s not just because there are so many songs these days that do not have much “variety”, but it’s songs like “Lonely” that actually are the catchier tracks compared to the rest. Having a strong and striking song like “Lupin” and the rest do not make them catchier or better sounding, it just makes songs like “Lonely” sound more beautiful and mesmerizing.
