Jive Monkey Playlist: 7/15/16

I’ve been looking forward to Mamamoo’s “brother” group ever since the news came out about their impending debut.  VROMANCE is being marketed as a boy group that’s not only good-looking but with great voices as well.  In fact, the “V” in their name stands for both “vocal” and “voices”.

The four members of the group are Leader Park Jang Hyun, Park Hyun Kyu, Lee Chan Dong and Lee Hyun Suk.  Before their debut, the members all worked as vocal trainers for idols before forming their group.  It also looks like their management company tested the waters by having the group perform on the streets of Korea and had them cover a famous Chinese pop song which captured the attention of fans in China.  In Korean, Park Jang Hyun and Park Hyun Kyu even recorded a song for the drama Heirs.

Upon listening to their debut title track, “여자 사람 친구 (A Friend That’s A Girl)” which is also known as “She”, I am cautiously optimistic about the group.  Absolutely, these boys have great voices and have that zest that would attract audiences to this group.  However, the thing that I love about Mamamoo is that not only can they sing but the concept of their group is vivacious, playful and sassy.  That’s kinda what I want to see in this group.

As for now, I really like this track for its upbeat jazz style.  The high production quality of the music makes the song and the group look slick and flashy.  I love that the music video features Mamamoo’s Hwasa, who is my favorite member of that group.  The song itself is pretty catchy as well.  Even though the song is just another love song, I love that it’s about discovering a friendship that was always valued has suddenly come to mean something a lot more.  There’s a lot of risk in discovering that you have deeper feeling for a close friend but if you are both on the same page, that risk could end up being extremely rewarding.  What could be more romantic than that?
