Here is some surprising news, the solo artist Jung Joon Young has actually joined a band–Or, considering the band is named the Jung Joon Young Band–formed a band around himself. Which, actually when you think of his sort of music, it actually makes a lot of sense.
Listening to the song, I have to admit, I really like it. It’s not something you hear in other Kpop bands. It’s a little harder, a little more edgy. And as for the video itself, I’m fairly certain has never and will never be seen on Korean TV. Nope. I’m guessing it took about 5 seconds and the sensors were all “Awww, heck no! Are you freaking kidding me with this?”
Last year I saw Jung Joon Young at KCon, and while I liked his music, it really didn’t catch on for me, but the JJY Band is something I’m a little more interested in. And with KCon doing some repeat artists from last year at this years NYC KCON, I hope he (and the band) make a return appearance.
JJY Band, OMG
Sidenote, is it just me or does his voice sound super familiar? I wish I could place the band, but I think it was in the 90’s or 2000’s, a US band? This is going to bother me until I figure out who it is, but he sounds JUST LIKE THEM.
Sidenote II: Again is also me who thinks calling themselves JJY Band is a bad idea? Considering that there is already a JYJ?
