LEE SEUNG GI - "MEET Somebody LIKE ME"
The Ballad Prince releases a new song and MV, coinciding with his vitalarmy stint that he islately serving. Lee Seung Gi's excellent friend Psy even wrote a song for him, "Meet Someone Like Me," which is fitting since Psy also wrote his debut tune. The entertainer is scheduled to serve in the navytill October 31, 2017, a general of 21 months.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, "Meet Someone Like Me" is a ballad. It kicks off with an acoustic guitar, yet soon finally ends up alongside a pounding beat and a few orchestration. When his voice comes in, it starts off contemplative, but morphs into anything more forceful.
His voice has been praised before, and I'm going toupload my own 30 Won (2 cents). I truly like his vocals; his pipes have a form of huskiness to them this is a refreshing alternate from the ballad whisperers. Too, there is some folk overtones injected into his functionality that stay IT fresh.
In the song, Lee Seung Gi is consoling a feminine friend after a breakup, pronouncingthe user who she must meet is him.
As I said, I am willing on Lee Seung Gi's taste and his vocal range. Psy's abilities every bit a songwriter are back evident, as he turns out something a cut above the common lovelorn ballad. The 2 are an unbeatable combo, as Psy provides the words whilst our MC takes it and makes it his own. A fitting ultimate hurrah as he marches off to serve his country.
The MV is a bittersweet selection of clips leading up to his existence in the military. We have nowwere given outtakes, house movies, drama sequences, MC shots, and other things in a mishmash of imagery outlining a stellar career. Interspersed are photographs of him getting his hair chopped and donning a military-grade helmet.
The clips are spot on, designed to come up with that wistful feeling that he'sunquestionably to be missed. But there's also a kind of hopeful feeling thrown in the mix, that he's going togo back from defense force service, perhaps even greater than when he went in. We could bein a position tohandiest hope.
One of the contrasts I love is the contemplative glance he sports sometimes, along side the smiles and triumphant poses in other clips. The scene close to the finish is poignant and symbolic -- the empty barber chair, emblematic of the metaphorical empty spot that was once once filled by way of the performer. The smiles in the MV, though, add a note of hope -- a very good present to enthusiasts who will be looking ahead to his return.
