Kim Hyun Joong is releasing his first Japanese album, Unlimited, on December 12th (yes, 12/12/12), and he is already getting a lot of attention for it! He released the lead track, "Your Story," on major sites in Japan such as iTunes, Music.jp and Recochoku. A spokesperson for Kim says, “Kim Hyun Joong has been acknowledged as a talented musician who does high-quality music since the single, 'Heat,' succeeded in Japan in July. It attracted a lot of attention with the fact that it was created in collaboration with the popular Japanese musician B’z. People in the music industry are guessing that 'Your Story,' which was released in December 5, will also become a hit.”
According to reports, modern rock band Daybreak’s bassist Kim Seon Il had a hand in arranging and playing on the song. Other Daybreak members also played guitar, bass, and keyboard. Kim showed off his guitar playing skills and his powerful voice in the forty-five second teaser of "Your Story," which was released on November 28th, 2012.
I'm liking the bass of the song and the gothic ambience of the video.
What do you think of this alternate side of our dear, sweet Ji Hoo from Boys Over Flowers? We saw that he could play the piano but his voice is amazing, don't you think?
