Kpop Album Review: Sunggyu's 27

I cannot tell you how long I have been waiting for this. Sunggyu's first album is still my favorite Kpop-related album of all time.

01. 27
02. 너여야만 해 (The Answer)
03. Alive
04. Kontrol
05. Daydream (Feat. Borderline : TABLO & JW)
06. 답가 (Feat. 박윤하)





01. 27

Woollim makes the most epic intro songs ever and 27 is no exception.

02. 너여야만 해 (The Answer)

This is so deliciously Nell inspired that I can't handle it. It sounds like every Nell song that I love with the extra flare that is Sunggyu's flawless voice.
Basically, I am so in love with him and this song that it isn't even funny.

03. Alive

This isn't my favorite song off the album, but please do yourself a favor and listen to these lyrics. I know that this will grow on me and will honestly probably become my favorite song on the album, haha.

04. Kontrol

This is where Sunggyu's voice always shines. His vocals are so emotional and he is able to express loss and love so easily. This is one of my favorite songs off the album and I am so happy that it was made a single. As @PassTheSuga already mentioned, its pretty heart-wrenching, but I wouldn't have wanted anyone but Sunggyu to sing this.

05. Daydream (Feat. Borderline : TABLO & JW)

When I heard that Sunggyu and Tablo were collaborating I nearly fell to my knees. Tablo and the rest of Epik High is actually the only reason I am really into Kpop. I heard that the label Tablo was on at the time (Woollim) was going to start a boy band so obviously I was curious. Turned out, it was Infinite.
This actually reminds me of a few electro-indie Korean bands I listen to so I really like the feel of it. They went a little overboard on the autotune, but I can forgive it.
And Tablo's rap....SWOOOOOOON

06. 답가 (Feat. 박윤하)

Sounds like the perfect song for a melancholy mood on a rainy summer morning. I feel immediately relaxed by this track and can't get enough.

Why You Should Stop Watching These Kpop YouTube Lyric Channels!
I wanted to talk about this on here because it's been blowing up on YouTube the past like month and I wasn't sure if people knew about it on here. (At the very bottom I will list channels that do this and some safe channels you can watch, how to look out for these people who are ripping these artists off.) Channels such as Jaeguchi, Zaty Farhani, and Lemonring (some of the most popular Kpop Lyric Channels) are stealing money from Kpop artists. How so, you might ask, well for Jaeguchi it is slightly different than the other two. Jaeguchi is actually not an individual, it is technically a company behind the channel. There are a couple of people behind the channel who are making these videos. Most of the time the lyrics are inaccurate translations of the Korean lyrics. And here is the big kicker, they have a company behind them that is overriding the Copyright put on their videos by for example SM. For those of you that do not know about YouTube's copyright system I'll explain a bit. 1. As soon as your video is uploading it is flagged for any copyrighted material. So, when I post an NCT video, SM immediately claims it and places ADs on it. Therefore SM is making money off of my video. (In my case I do not have my channel monetized because I do not wish to make money off of these videos.) Therefore this would make my NCT video unmonetizable but otherwise fine to stay up on my channel because SM ismaking money off of it. 2. Most times a company will flag you for the music, however, in some cases they will get you for the Music Video which is a VISUAL copyright. Now this is important, a VISUAL copyright outweighs a MUSIC copyright. So, for example NCT 127's Kick It on my channel, SM claimed Kick It's Music Video instead of the song Kick It because the visual copyright is considered ABOVE the music. This Is What You Should Be Seeing in A Lyric Video's Desciption if A Kpop Artist's Company is Claiming The Video like they should be: (Note: This is taken from my Lyric Video for Jason Derulo, Lay, & NCT 127's 'Shut Up & Dance') This is what you'd see on a channel like ZATY FARHANI's: (Notice how additionally to SF9's 'Summer Breeze' there is another song claimed in the description. Meaning the artist of 'lost in your arms' is making half the revenue.) ALSO, On JAEGUCHI'S Channel I noticed This: (SM is not claiming Kick It, meaning they are not making money off of this video) BUT, I Used 12 Seconds of Kick It in One of My Videos and This Appears in my Description: (Yeah...so something has to be going on there!) Okay back to Jaeguchi, the company behind them is somehow claiming that the videos they make are VISUALLY their's so therefore it outweigh's the MUSIC's copyright therefore allowing Jaeguchi to make a profit off of their videos. So, that means that for instance if Jaeguchi made an NCT 127 Punch lyric video SM would not be making money off of it. Which is freaking ridiculous. Now onto channels such as Zaty Farhani and Lemonring. They are doing it a different way. On these two channels you may notice that after the song is done there is still about a minute of content left at the end of their videos with some half-assed song that Zaty or Lemon has made themselves. They themselves are entering their songs into the YouTube copyright system and therefore when they upload these videos YouTube claims the songs therefore making it to where they can make half the revenue that the video makes. So, a dumbed down version of this: If Zaty makes a Pentagon Dr. Bebe lyric video and Cube claims Dr. Bebe, Zaty is also claiming their minute song at the end. So, therefore Cube and Zaty are having to split what they make off the video whenever pretty much the entire video is not Zaty's content. I just find this complete bullshit because there are idols who are not getting paid, who have to work part-time jobs in order to make money and here we have "SO CALLED FANS" stealing from them. It's absolute garbage! Channels You Should Avoid if Possible: JAEGUCHI ZATY FARHANI Lemonring Jyimina PJ (READ BELOW) (Seems to have recently started doing it, check out how in their Kang Daniel 'Waves' Lyric video there are two songs claimed in the description, one being Daniel's and the other being a random ass song by an "Artist" named Yo2zing...well look what pops up whenever you type in Yo2zing into Google.) Channels That Aren't Profiting Off of Kpop Artists (as of now): KPOP. vine Yankat (No longer active but their channel still has some older lyric videos you can watch) Kimorene Watch These Videos to Learn More About What's Happening: The video below is the one that outed JAEGUCHI & ZATY FARHANI: Another Video about JAEGUCHI & ZATY FARHANI from the same YouTuber: Below Is Another YouTuber That Talks About It Too: And Another YouTuber Commenting On This: ANYWAYS THANKS FOR READING!

Watch INFINITE Sing Live Even At A Dry Rehearsal
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTAatAJHRkA#t=234.761 Hello Inspirits! Take a look at this rehearsal from The 2016 Dream Concert back in October. Not only is it day time, cold outside and a rehearsal, but INFINITE is still singing live, not lipsyncing to a backing track. That's pretty incredible and speaks to their dedication and ability to perform with confidence. Just another reason on a long list of reasons I stan INFINITE. *Did anyone else notice Myungsoo's jacket/sandal combo? Are you stolling on the sandy beaches of Jeju or braving the harsh winter of Seoul, Sir? lol I guess he wanted the best of both worlds.

Take a breath real quick
INSPIRITS I have some hard and sad news. Hoya has officially left Woollim and Infinite. This is heart breaking news and its hard for me to take this in. They explained that while discussing contract renewals in June, he decided to take another path to pursue his dreams, and the company and members decided to respect his decision. “As it was a careful decision that had to be made, a lot of time was spent for consideration,” they continued. Woollim revealed, “With the exception of Hoya, INFINITE members Kim Sunggyu, Jang Dongwoo, Nam Woohyun, Lee Sungyeol, L, and Lee Sungjong have completed contract renewals. The agency is working on reorganizing as a six-member group, and we plan on actively supporting their group and individual activities as we are now.” They ended, “Lastly, we ask for your unchanging support for the futures of the six members of INFINITE and Hoya.” This is from soompi, read full article click here, but a sad moment right now. Lets just all keep with INFINITE and send Hoya lots of love as he moves forward with his dreams. I support him with everything and even though this hurts right now, I know it's going to get better. With love Hoya.
