I can’t stress how much I love the KPOP Star series. They really do discover some awesome talents via KPOP Star, and you truly do have to stand out with your talents and personality to even make it through the auditions. So, of course, I tend to be on the lookout for the debut and comebacks of the participants. The girl group project formed by BoA for season 2 of the series definitely left an impression, and I wish some company would have just scooped the five girls up together. But, unfortunately, the KPOP world is no happily ever after. At least all five found a company, and are nearly ready for debut if they haven’t yet debuted. Jeon Min Joo, who was the last of the five to be heard from in regards to debuting, is actually rumored to be debuting in a girl group with former YG trainee and a participant in the Superstar K series, Kim Yuna, who features in this song.
So, without further ado, here’s our review for Jeon Min Joo’s, nicknamed Little BoA, 비별 (Goodbye Rain).
First off, I don’t understand how this can be a solo debut for Jeon Min Joo when she only sang the chorus. Those featuring in the song got more lines than she did. All she did was sing the chorus, and that’s usually the part for those who are featuring. With that aside though, I loved the song! I even got my older brother into it, and my four year old nephew calls Jeon Min Joo his girlfriend. To be organized in regards to the three beautiful voices in this song, let’s start with Yuna’s rapping. I first heard her when she collaborated with Yoon Mi Rae’s and Tiger JK’s group, so I already knew she would be rapping and that I was going to love it; of course I was right in that aspect. Next would be Hyunkyu from Bromance. I don’t know much about Bromance, but I know they sung a song for Heirs, which I didn’t listen to because it was a ballad, and it wasn’t a ballad that called out to me. I didn’t even watch the drama all the way through. BUT, I really loved Hyunkyu’s voice in this song. It was beautiful and really matched well with the beat. I don’t know if Bromance has other songs out, but I hope they get an RnB track or something that will completely catch my attention. I’m definitely going to be on the lookout for their future activities, that’s for sure. And finally, onto Min Joo. I can’t really remember what she sounded like on KPOP Star, but based off of this song, I think her voice is very unique.
Now on to the music video. Of course, the dance break had to be included, and I think she did well. I love that it was on the tougher side, and not completely sexy, because you all know how tired I am of the sexy concept. That seems to be all KPOP is about nowadays with the girl groups. In my opinion, a girl who carries herself like Jeon Min Joo did in this music video is sexier. I think that it’s sexier when girls bare just their midriff (and it makes me jealous that I don’t have a flat tummy) or just enough skin and dance with a passion rather than sexual appeasement. A simple look teases, and what guy isn’t attracted to a tease?
Overall score; 10. It was a really good song. When the piano started playing in the beginning, and Hyunkyu’s voice started in, I was smiling already and knew I had fallen in love with the song already. Honestly, I think it was because of Hyunkyu that I love this song so much. So, Bromance, release a new song already because I am ready to become a fan.
