Jang Bum Joon Says He Isn’t No. 1 Because of “Descendants of the Sun” Soundtrack
Jang Bum Joon talked about his hit songs with Park Myung Soo.
On the episode of MBC’s “Infinite Challenge” aired on March 26, Park Myung Soo listens to Jang Bum Joon’s hits. Then he tunes in into Jang Bum Joon’s newest song and comments, “This will probably top the charts as well.”
However, Jang Bum Joon replies, “No, it didn’t make first place because of the ‘Descendants of the Sun’ soundtrack.”
Park Myung Soo cheers him up by saying the wedding song they are working on together will claim first place on music charts.
Meanwhile, Jang Bum Joon self-disses himself, saying that a lot of his songs are repetitive. He then proceeds the key phrases of “Yeosu Night Sea” and “Love, at First,” which turn out to have similar note progressions.
Park Myung Soo soon takes a liking to Jang Bum Joon and asks, “Why do you not appear on TV? Are you going for the mysterious image?”
In response Jang Bum Joon says, “I’ve never really felt the need to appear on TV shows.”
Though Park Myung Soo tries to sugarcoat his words and interpret it as “wowing the crowd with music skills, not looks,” Jang Bum Joon flat out says, “Even though I don’t appear on TV, the public listens to my songs, and I have a steady flow of profit…”
