2PM is my new favourite. Originally there were seven members in the group, but Jaebeom left due to a controvertial comment made last year. This new South Korean boy band, probably look just like any other. But for the past few days I’ve had their first album, 01:59PM, on loop. Why? Because as a fan with a hopeless addiction to base, these boys have created some heavy beats for their songs. Plus the sound of Korean being sung is music to my ears.
But seriously, they are just great. Their style is edgy, fast, very slick yet stil sexy, a tough balance without tilting towards being cheesy. Maybe I might change my mind if I understood the lyrics, but my opinion on music has been that, if it sounds amazing, does it really matter about understanding the lyrics?
