Review: LED Apple's 'With the Wind' is a Showcase of Lead Singer Hanbyul's Amazing Vocal Talents

Review: LED Apple's 'With the Wind' is a Showcase of Lead Singer Hanbyul's Amazing Vocal Talents

LED Apple, Hanbyul

Review: LED Apple's 'With the Wind' is a Showcase of Lead Singer Hanbyul's Amazing Vocal Talents LED Apple With the Wind As many fans of Korean pop-rock band LED Applealready know, they are one of the music industry's hidden treasures.

A talented group of musicians featuring all the standard performers - guitar, drums, bass, and keyboard with a seriously gifted lead singer Hanbyulthrown in for good measure - LED Apple is one of South Korea's best kept secrets.

The group released their latest single "With the Wind" on November 4 and the song takes on a different feel than their past releases.

A sentimental ballad track, "With the Wind" is a grand showcase of Hanbyul's incredible range, impressive tone and vocal control.

The music video is fairly standard musical performance that highlights LED Apple's position as a band as opposed to the mainstay K-Pop idol groups' choreographed dance routines.

With a heavy use of fog machines and lights, LED Apple are able to give off a rockstar vibe even though the song itself is a gentle rock ballad.

On the group's official YouTube page, many fans have expressed their feelings about the new track - mostly positive with the only real complaints being that "With the Wind" and the accompanying music video focus entirely too much on Hanbyul seemingly shoving the other four members in the background.

But that is precisely what makes "With the Wind" such an impressive song to begin with.Hanbyul is able to shine in the track whereas in previous LED Apple releases, his talents were hidden amongst the fanfare and overproduction of the music videos (this summer's "Bad Boys" is a great example of that).

Since the beginning of the year the members of LED Apple, and most specifically Hanbyul, have been releasing a series of cover songs - one a week - to help raise money for the Save the Children charity foundation.The project is known as Music Noteand money is made for the charity through the advertisements on the page.

The majority of the tracks have been rearrangements by Hanbyul and as much as the videos have served to help starving children across the planet, they have also helped bring the band's lead singer into the limelight as a voice that begs to be heard.

It only seems fitting then, that LED Apple would choose to ride the Hanbyul wave with a delicate showcase of his incredible talent.

Take a listen to "With the Wind" above and let us know what you think of LED Apple's latest single in the comments section below.

Kcon New York 2016 At The Prudential Center - June 24th-25th, 2016 PHOTOS (Photo : Angie Turbines for KpopStarz ) Entering the 2d one day of KCON The large apple made me excited than I used to be the day before. Perhaps because I best had one panel to wait and had more time to explore at the convention. And also maybe since the hype for the key headliner, BTS, used to be intense.

AdvertisementChecked-in and browsed, loads of lovers wore black and white with the letters "BTS" or a member's call on them.

After my remaining panel with NuttyNomads, East Coast K-Spots, there has beenan infinitequantity of time for me to try the Korean food street. From the Nongshim Shin Ramyun stand for the ones thatwish to existrelatively sadistic and treat themselves to a hot taster of ramyun in the sweltering warmth to the Melona booth wearing3other flavors in their signature ice pops to cool things down.

A few meters away, lines of local food trucks got herevia to give a dose of Asian cuisine. From the potato spiral, Korean tacos, to kimbap and other Korean boulevard foods, there were also burgers and fries to be hador even an ice cream truck serving them in scoops in a hot glazed doughnut called creamybuns.

On the opposite side, of the convention, Day6 made a distinct appearance in the Toyota booth and did a small meet and greet with fortunate fans. Taking photographs and an never-ending amount of fan service, the encompassingspaces of the tent become packed.

Throughout the conference fans were spotted shooting amongst their favourite K-Pop YouTubers similar to J.R.E and Jun Curry Ahn whilst they post up short meet and greet spots round the convention.

Moments later, the crowd headed in for the moment and last day of KCON's M! Countdown concert.

Just like the primary day's host, Ailee and Rap Monster took the degreeback and offered the night's opener - MAMAMOO.

The four-member ladycrew brought the crowd to cheers proving that their reputationis solely every bitwonderful the male teams on the KCON line-up. While they sang "You're The Best" in their setlist it was when they sang "Taller Than You (1cm)" when I were given hyped. Now not because that was the sole song I knew, yet the beat sounded like a badass feminineedition of Eminem's "The GenuineSlender Shady."

After MAMAMOO's set, JYP's choice pop/rock back Day6 came out in complete ensemble appearing "Letting Go," "Congratulations," and "Freely." As many idea their set might've been a brief one, the crowd created a special stage and collaborated with MAMAMOO. The 2 groups conducted a K-Pop medley of CN Blue's "I'm A Loner," Big Bang's "Lies" and the sweetness Girls' "Nobody."

Bringing a more romantic feel to the concert, Eric Nam popped up from the front-end of the concert stage with a bouquet of roses as offers them out to his fans as he plays his first song. Followed by his vintagetune "I'm Okay" the singer/song-writer and host entertained his fans with non-publicstudies and jokes in between songs. Debuting his exclusive unmarried with Kolaj, Eric Nam accomplished "Into You" and gave Prudential Center a run for its participation as the crowd clapped and jumped along to the EDM track.

It was moments later that Eric came back on stage with Ailee for every other particular phase performing Soyou and Jung Gigo's hit song "Some." With the two buddies hilariously noticing how awkward the functionality afterwards, the two Korean-American K-Pop stars ended the evening as MCs to introduce the primary headliners of KCON - BTS.

Screams were louder than ever as the stage was lit. Literally. The displays on stage already gave a trace to what was the group's opening song would be- "FIRE." The Prudential Center lit up inside milliseconds with lightsticks and mildforums as fans began jumping up and down from their seats spazzing.

BTS comes up from the stage in flaming charismatic poses as they and the crowd started to sing "FIRE."

I, myself, could nothang back the dancing as well. I would most likely not know the choreography but there was some intense headbanging, head bopping and dabbing on my end.

Soon following up with "Save Me," BTS continues to leave a deep affect within everybody with their synchronized choreography to the tropical house-like track.

When it came to particular person introductions, the screams just grew louder and louder. The neighborhood then broke it down with performing a complete freestyle/rap ensemble and closed out the night with their viral hit "DOPE."

The night was not anything simply lit.

As all the KCON Day 2 performers came out for the closing stage, artists gave their proportion of fan provider by sending out flying kisses, mini-hearts and waves. Some artists like Ailee and MAMAMOO busted out in moves while BTS's Junggook proved himself to be the king of Dabs as he dabbed across one finish of the stage to another.

The amusing was at its top but it was unluckyto gain that KCON 2016 has come to an end.

They say time flies by when you may have got fun. And as for anyone who experienced KCON for the 1st time, it was an revel in that was way too fun and too fast. Till next year!

KCON L. a.is simply around the corner so stay an eye out for KpopStarz's coverage!

Just moments later, lighting went off and BTS' Rap Monster and soloist Ailee took the stage as the KCON x M! Countdown concert hosts. Seventeen unfolded the displayacting their hits "Pretty U," "Adore U," and "Mansae."

KCON Big apple Concert Day 2: From Starting to End, Uncontrollable Excitement

KCON Big apple Concert Day 2: From Starting to End, Uncontrollable Excitement

20160701_seoulbeats_kconny2016_btsKCON The giant apple Concert Day 2: From Starting to End, Uncontrollable ExcitementWritten through Madi On July 4, 201620160701_seoulbeats_kconny2016_crowdKCON 2016 Big apple Presented by Totoya held at the Prudential Middle in Newark, NJ unquestionably proved to be a festival to celebrate all things Hallyu and day two was once no other from day one.

The following may also bestated around most, if now not all, conventions: Saturday is usually and without a doubt the main day. The crowd is bigger, the lines at dealer booths are longer, and other people are waiting early in line for total admission. And we’re not speaking 10am when the conference starts. There has beenindividualscoated up as early as 8:30am.

Fast ahead to 7pm and it's far concert time. Saturday’s line up consisted of Mamamoo, Eric Nam, Day6, and BTS.

20160702_seoulbeats_kconusa_day6BTS changed into the headliner for the concert (and beautiful much all of KCON was about BTS) and any time their call was mentioned, the crowd went wild making it glaring who they were most commonly there for.

But the crowd was not biased. All of the artists gaineda wonderful amount of shouting, applauding, cheering, and not many of us sitting, if any, all over their sets.

The opening of the concert started amongst Jun Sung-ahn. Whilst many now know him as BgA’s maknae, he’s known for his violin and dance covers of K-pop songs. He conducted one reside song and then BTS’s “Save Me”, whole with dance moves from the song’s tune video. He was actually a just right artist to get the crowd excited.

Ailee and BTS’s Rap Monster returned to MC some otherevening of the concert. Unlike day one, there was less scripted lines and the communique between the either one of them and the crowd gave the impression more natural.

Mamamoo was the primary act to grace the degree with their jazzy vocals and dominating stage presence. The set list composed of “You’re the Best”, “Mr. Ambiguous”, “Taller than You”, “Piano Man,” and “Um Oh Ah Yeh”. Thosewomenknow the wayto engage with and go a crowd. To be added to a Saturday line up was a plus because they were definitely a fan favourite that night.

Even even though Hwasa owned the stage, I couldn’t stay my eyes off Solar. Visually, she was surprising (still is), but vocally? She threw down some notes and I felt like I practically forgot to breathe.

And I’ll admit, I won't don a radish mild stick any time soon, but I believe I’m intrigued adequate straight offto hear their music more actively.  As per the mid-year review, I did actuallypay attention to their newest album, but it was my 2dcreation to them, the 1st being “Ahh Oop!” with eSNa.

On the calmer aspect of the night, Eric Nam showed up with a bouquet of roses to hand out which was in sync with his intro video. While the crowd neglected out on “Ohh Ohh”, which he didn’t realize was so popular, Eric was awesome ample to pattern an acapella edition of the song.  

Despite the loss of “Ohh Ohh”, Eric executed “Good For You”, “I’m Okay”, “Heaven’s Door” and “Into You.” Most artists don’t have a tendencyto accomplish songs which are as well asfresh for the shortcoming of fan engagement, but he didn’t care. Prior to taking the crowd away with “Into You”, he told the crowd that since he’s a solo singer, he has no backup dancers. On account of that, he wantedall and sundry to dance. Despite the reality that many would possibly peg Eric Nam as a ballad singer, he definitely has a charismatic way with the crowd. And if you’re not conversant in Mr. Nam, then that a phase of his personality will certainly sneak up on you and sweep you off your feet.

After a display of Rap Monster’s aegyo via Ailee’s push which he was perplexed every bit to how the crowd knew that note Day6 install to take the Prudential Center by storm. I say this because Day6 isn’t like other K-pop acts, they’re strictly a band that fairly much promotes on their own. They don’t have much assist from JYPE outdoor of being a protection net, so for them to come to KCON was good way to introduce them to new lovers and give existing fans a possibility to shower them with love.

Day6’s set list incorporated of “Letting Go”, “Congratulations”, and “Freely”. Surprisingly, on KCON’s list of the artist’s song stash playlist, their debut song, “Congratulations”, didn’t make the cut which individually is one in their best songs as a group. Day6 most certainly had some of the best setlists, acting their most pleasurable songs.

Having the lads on stage, it was quilt time. Like the former night of Seventeen’s canopy of Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry,” Day6 led the crowd into some conceal songs by performing CN Blue’s “I’m a Loner” and “Lies” by Big Bang. It definitely took the target audience a moment to consider of the latter song. While the crowd stayed true to CN Blue, they made “Lies” their own by their musical rearrangement. Even although they played a small intro of the song, the crowd didn’t change intoconscious about what song they were covering till Jae started making a song “I’m so sorry, but I like you…” Then, the crowd went berserk.

Riding that wave, the band beganto hide Wonder Girls’s “Nobody”. Day6, like the song before, made this song their own. Midway though, Mamamoo returned to the stage to sing and dance to the song. All people was singing along, reminiscing in the throwback moment.

Just while youconcept the covers were over, Ailee and Eric Nam returned to the stage performing “Some” by SoYou and JunggiGo. I wasn’t familiar with this song, but the 2 played the romance feel of the song moderatelyneatly and the chemistry was great between them. It was showed at the end that either are remarkable at acting, confessing the interactions between them in the route of the song were weird.

Finally, the headliners were making their way to the stage. The audience have beenlooking forward to this moment and couldn’t hang back any longer, knowing your complete artists had already played for the night and there was just one left. In spite of not desiring an intro, a video introduction played, perhaps messing with the crowd’s inability to wait.  And after a pause that gave the glance of an eternity, “Fire” started to play as the members of BTS arrived, bobbing up on a platform in the process the stage.

The power BTS gave though their entire set list was out of this international and nobody dared to take a seat down during their performances. “Save Me” was their only slow song with the purpose to speak, but the calories started to incline back when they performed “Fun Boys.” Yet what actuallywere given the crowd hyped back up was when they stunned the audience with “Cypher pt. 3”. BTS hasn’t released a Cypher since before their The Most lovely Moment in Life series. Even though the crowd went loopy for “Fire,” when the first few beats of “Cypher pt.3” dropped, the crowd promptly lost their well, you know.

The workforce wrapped up the concert with “Dope” which was a good way to end their set list and the night because KCON 2016 NY Saturday night’s concert was not anything but “Dope”.

I don’t know about any of you who attended Saturday’s concert, but it felt too short. The blocked off the time for the concert was 7pm 10pm, but the concert ended at 9:30pm. Not just that, but taking into account BTS was the headliner, they might possess done no less than3 more songs to have a whole of 8 performances. With BTS’s setlist, adding “I Want You” and probably swapping out “Fun Boys” for “Bapsae” would have made the concert more enjoyable…

IMG_6682Even though I think this way, I left the concert feeling content. I used to bein a position to revel in all the artists in user and be swept up by the energy from the concert. I walked into the Prudential Center feeling tired from all the policy nosotros did during the day, but that was all long gonethe instant the lighting fixtures went low and the concert began.

What was your expertise during the concert? Did you would like for more or simply felt bless enough for it to all go down in one night? Please leave your mind in the comments and hope to look next year, KCON!
