Kang Seung Yoon - Wild And Young
Oh, yeah! What I usually like most about k-pop is its futuristic, highly polished and choreographed pop/dance/r&b music, but this is totally different. What we have here is a classic, big-riffed guitar anthem. It's like something Lenny Kravitz (or even my favorites, the Ark) would have performed. Kang Seung Yoon has been training with one of the big three record companies, YG, and this sounds very atypical to their usual output. However, of the big three, it seems that YG is the most adventurous, so I guess it's not a huge surprise. Whatever the case, I was obsessed with this from the first listen and can't imagine anybody disliking it. For those not particularly interested in Asian music, it's got a pretty strong western influence. Plus, this guy's got a great rock voice.
