Boyband WINNER are K-pop with a Twist
I think we can all agree that Winner's album is one of the best Kpop albums of the year. Dazed Digital just released a peice about what sets them apart and why they're going to conquer the world. "Anyone expecting the pounding beats and flashy videos that characterise many boyband debuts may have been startled by WINNER’s gentle sound and their low-key, stylish approach to hip hop-inspired midtempo pop – but the five-piece aren't your usual K-pop act.” The article includes a brief Q&A, but my favorite question and answer was by far this one: What was the hardest thing for you in making this album? And do you feel changed as people having completed this long process? Jin-woo: While going through this long process, we did our best to put out the best album possible. Personally, I practiced a lot during this time. I wanted to work even harder to really be recognized. Mino: I would make so many edits and changes to one song that my judgement would get fuzzy. Will the fans and the public like it? Will it be able to connect? Also, I asked myself ‘will I have to compromise my bold style and image’? After dealing with that for a period of time, I was able find my sense of peace. Unlike boybands such as EXO-K or B.A.P your debut singles were ballads. How did you feel about that? Seung-yoon: People expected us to be a performance-heavy group – but in order to change that image we needed some sort of unexpected surprise. Mino: Although songs with a catchy hook and heavy beat aren’t bad, we didn’t want to follow trends. Seung-hoon: We want to have a place in your daily lives – one that is a familiar and close place – whether through the radio, your headphones, on the bus, or a in a café.

I love Winner! This album has been on repeat on my ipod ever since it came out. They're really different!
*After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr BALAYA and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: doctorbalaya@gmail.com http://doctorbalaya.wordpress.com
@caricakes Ahhh I see what you did there! "Different" This album is by far one of my favorite albums of all time. The whole vibe, style, and raw authenticity really gets my whole mind engaged in the songs. My fave songs are Color Ring, Smile Again, and Different. Of course all the songs are wonderful! Tonight, Empty, Don't Flirt, I'm him, Confession, But, and Love's a lie. And can you guys believe they put this whole thing together?? Seunghoon choreographing, Seungyoon playing guitar, Mino and Taehyung lyric writing (With Hoon and Yoon too!) and Jin just touching our hearts with each note??? Wow. Just wow.
