Old School K-Pop Duo J-Walk to Make Comeback This Fall
Though variety superstar Eun Ji Won is easily the most recognizable member of one of the original K-Pop idol groups, Sechs Kies, the duo J-Walk has been quietly charming us with their sweet music for over a decade. Members Jang Su Won and Kim Jae Duk were practically wallflowers next to the adorable main vocalist Kang Sung Hoon and charismatic rapper Eun Ji Won, but together, they’ve managed to win our hearts and stay relevant all these years.
While reviewing a hundred demos for their mini-album to be released this fall, they came across a song with such a beautiful melody and lyrics that they’ll be releasing it first as a digital single for their long-awaiting fans. “Frappuccino” starts with a smooth acoustic guitar and will showcase J-Walk’s unique sound. The rap parts and background vocals were done by soon-to-debut “high-end” vocal group Timber.
Keep your eye out for their comeback single, and for those unfamiliar with the duo, check out J-Walk’s debut single, “Suddenly” from 2002, still my favorite after all these years.
