The latest comeback song by TOY ‘세 사람(Three people)’ is featuring Sung Si Kyung. Actually this song was recorded with Onew first. Sung Si Kyung himself mentioned about it in his concert around the end of December 2014. That’s why Onew was mentioned in TOY’s album thanks to. Nobody knows why the version with Onew was not being released. Some speculations went that the lyrics which sounds oldies because of words ‘old time friend’ in the lyrics is not suitable for a 25/26 year old guy. If that is really the reason, TOY or Yoo Hee Yeol won’t record it with Onew at first place. So there might be another reason for that..
Kim yeonwoo mentioned on radio today that he’s been coaching onew with his singing recently. Kim yeonwoo told Onew that he has not been to japan before, so Onew said “lets go japan together”. Kim yeonwoo ask Onew won’t he be recognized if they go out together. And jinki replied that without makeup nobody will recognize him.

Sunny: I’ve heard that Onew is receiving help from you.
KYW: He got better voice after the vocal cord surgery. I’ve met him recently after a long while and I’m so much relieved and also trying to stop him from smoking. I said, ‘Make a promise with me. Promise me and quit smoking this time for real.’
Sunny: I’m Onew’s best friend. Onew worried/suffered a lot after the vocal cord surgery. About his life as a singer. Since before the surgery. Talking about it, he worried a lot about the way to decided…
KYW: He worries a lot, but in my opinion, he doesn’t need to worry too much because he is so talented enough that it will be successful if he releases his solo album later. He got the finer voice range and became easier to make sound recently. He is mending a few things (of his singing skill) with me. I’m doing it for free.*
KWY: Because he’s pretty. He is so nice and pretty. His heart/mind is so pretty. So I buy him drinks, give him free lessons and do everything for him. Where is a hyung like me in the world? (laughs)
*Kim Yeon-woo is also a vocal trainer and a professor

Me: KYW is a respected senior ballad singer with a very amazing singing talent and skill. He used to be a vocal coach, and recently he is coaching Onew . This make Onew closer to Kim Yeon Woo nowadays that he made kyw to mentioned and called him on the radio. Even kyw wish that onew would have a solo. Remember back in 2009 KYW was featuring in Onew’s song ‘ The Name I Loved’ and in 2010 both of them appeared together in a radio show. After a few years, seems like they never lose contact with each other 🙂
With the recent interview, I’m a bit shocked that KYW openly talked about onew smoking, but I feel relieved that KYW is trying to help him to quit. If I can meet KYW face to face, I really want to thank him for taking care of Onew and giving lessons to him, and also always showing his affection towards Onew.
As he keep mentioning about coaching Onew, I see a bright light for Onew in the future =)

SM the Ballad’s Love Song Is Good… But What Is It Missing?
SM the Ballad’s 2nd album Breath is a collaboration ballad album of SM Entertainment singers. It’s their second album, which they released after their first album release 4 years ago in 2010.
Like Us on Facebook Proven vocalists Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, SHINee’s Jonghyun, Super Junior’s Yesung, f(x)’s Krystal, EXO’s Chen, Chinese rookie Zhang Li Yin, and Super Junior-M’s Zhou Mi lent their voice to the making of this ballad album.
The album contains a total of 10 songs, including the instrumental intro “Dear,” as well as Japanese and Chinese tracks. So actually there are 5 new songs on this album. Even still, since different artists sang the versions in Japanese and Chinese, the songs will have different feels to them.
Most of SM’s trendy songs have been works of foreign composers. However, excluding “Breath” and “A Day Without You,” the entire album was produced in Korea, meaning that local composers were chosen to express emotions and lyrics. If the ballad genre is too contrived, it could have a negative effect, so it’s good that they’ve made this decision.
Nevertheless, traces of calculative dance song making formulas still remain in “Breath.” Even though SM’s all-star vocalists participated in the album, it was lacking in a sense that the singers weren’t able to show off their talents 100%.
SM used the strategy of staggering the song releases in order to build up curiosity and anticipation for the album. However, considering the big ranks of the singer involved, the album didn’t show great power on the music charts. (On the other hand, the initially unanticipated duet “Some” by Junggigo and Soyou stood at number 1.)
If anything, SHINee Onew’s single “Moonlight” is noteworthy. Just like Taeyeon’s “If,” it’s a song that is not very SM, but is doing surprisingly well. It’s nice to have a set style, but sometimes it could be a better idea to let the singers do their own thing. After all, they’re too established to just get a passing grade with their songs now. They should be blowing expectations out of the water. This album was good, but no great, and definitely could have been much, much better.
