The wonderful ladies of Secret have been on the scene for a little over three years, and since their debut, they’ve been releasing music regularly, racking up a significant discography which worthily complements their promoted tracks.

To my delight, there were many.
Like other established girl groups that put out excellent tracks other than their promoted releases (2NE1, T-ara, and Wonder Girls), it’s evident that the producers behind Secret put in a solid effort at creating great music for the group with each and every release. Not only are its promoted songs catchy and attention grabbing, they’re also usually accompanied by high quality songs that populate a single, mini, or full album

Of the popular composers and producers in K-pop, SM’s producers don’t often appear on Korean television, or the media, for that matter. Brave Brothers, Shinsadong Tiger, Teddy — those are the guys you’ll frequently see in news headlines.
