[Song & MV Review] Yunho – “Drop”

Yunho (also known as U-KNOW) of TVXQ has dropped a solo single under the SM Station digital music project. We really haven't heard anything from him for a couple years, so this is a special treat for fans.

When I first heard the drop for "DROP," I was excited. We heard some loud synth work, and rapping, so maybe, I reasoned, he was going in a somewhat harder direction.

My excitement was short-lived...

Instead of the hopefully hip-hop-tinged, harder-edged track, we got something that probably any average boy group could do. It's not that it's a terrible tune -- far from it -- it's just that it's really uninspired. I was hoping for something more to chase the fall doldrums away. SM Station was releasing those techno-influenced tracks for a while.

You know how watching other people smile and laugh makes you want to smile and laugh? That is how this newest behind-the-scenes trailer for "The Bros" makes me feel. The rapport between not only the main actors (Ma Dong-seok, Lee Dong-hwi, and Lee Honey) is excellent, but they rope the rest of the cast and crew into the hilarity.

Jung Ye Eun, played by Han Seung Yeon, is changing slowly but with significance in JTBCs drama Age of Youth 2.

Even when she was in Belle Epoque, the share house she was familiar with, Jung Ye Eun became tense when strangers came. So the new housemate Jo Eun (Choi Ara) and the male manager Seo Jang Hoon (Kim Min Suk) were unnerving and discomforting for her. She began to open up, however, when she realized that Jo Eun had a soft spot under her seeming coldness and that Seo Jang Hoon worried and cared for her after the dating violence.
