I first heard of Supersonic on a Best of K-pop 2012 countdown, taking best album of the year. To be honest, I really didn’t who you were, and I confess that, one, I thought you were an indie artist that only sings ballads, and two, assumed that you were a guy. (I kind of just skimmed, okay?) Not too long afterwards, I saw you top yet another Best of 2012 list. Once may be just the taste of the writer, but twice? So of course, I started googling it. The search led me to shining review after shining review including of course, the one here on Seoulbeats. After reading at least half a dozen of them, I knew I finally had to listen to the album that had the entire K-pop blogosphere raving about it
