    Am I the only one who finds it odd that G.Na doesn’t do her adlibs live? From what I know she’s definitely capable of doing them, she has an amazing voice. So why doesn’t she?

    That aside I do really enjoy their performances, and Ilhoon nails it too, especially for a rookie. (Also he has the prettiest eyes, but who’s looking?)

    The trot song really sounds nice, I like that the more traditional Korean music can seep through all of the pop songs, same with the beautiful ballads of 2Bic and Davichi. I agree about Infinite though. Man in Love is a nice enough song, but it’s so standard. I expected better of them, since their singles before this have always had something different and have been top quality.

      I think G.Na has a lot of breathing issues, which is probably why she doesn’t do the adlibs live. She can definitely sing them, but I think her stamina isn’t the greatest.

    I’m actually very disappointed with Infinite’s comeback but I will wait for seoulbeats’s review article before I say my piece. I’m looking forward for the review article. Will seoulbeats be partial and attack the flaws of the song and album or praise its mediocrity.

      It may seem cliche to say this right now but, really, different strokes for different folks. I find nothing mediocre in Infinite’s latest mini album. The only flaw it has, in my opinion, is that group version of 60 seconds. But yes, I think an album review will be a better post for discussion.

      music is subjective, what you may find mediocre may not be viewed as so by another person. I personally enjoyed this comeback a lot and i understand that some other people may not but to label it simply as mediocre isn’t really sufficient in my opinion.

    It’s difficult for a foreigner to really find something outside special of K “Pop” as it seems that K music has been overshadowed by idol groups of late. Most of the available news and MV, music programs etc focus mainly on artists from the Big 3 and also other better known agencies.

    I also started out by listening a couple of the more well known groups but quickly shifted focus to solo/small group artists and I’m guessing less “popular” artists (outside Korea and the general K Pop fandom) for their wonderful vocal prowess – Park Hyo Shin, Noel, 2BiC, Lee Seung Chul, Davichi, BJY etc! I actually started listening to 2BiC after a website (was it Seoulbeats?) who posted up their very first MV and was absolutely blown away. There are so much good music out there waiting to be discovered and if you look hard enough there probably will be something that will suit your taste.

      There’s a lot of great Korean singers that are not highlighted by the “Hallyu Wave”. It’s just a matter of finding the right sound for you. I like a lot of the lesser known singers internationally but I also know the more popular ones.

    infinite sooo disappointed me :(

    their singles are sounding more generic and has the same style over and over

    they really need more materials and they need to expand
