Review: I

I

JYJ’s Jaejoong made his solo debut with his 1st mini album, “I.”

“One Kiss” was Jaejoong’s pre-released track for the album. The beginning reminds me of  “Always With Me, Always with You” by Joe Satriani. I really loved this song, it was a beautiful rock-ballad type song, and Jaejoong’s voice was amazing. Could easily have been his title song, in fact I would have loved to see a MV for it.

Score: 1/1

“Mine” was not my favorite song. It wasn’t a bad song, just not my pick for a title song. I feel like it was chosen as the title song because the title fit in with the theme of his concert, and the album. I am liking the same dark, and kind of dramatic MV, it reminded me of his groupmate, Xiah’s solo debut MV, “Tarantallegra,” just less theatrical.

Score: .75/1

내안 가득히 (You Fill Me Up): 1/1

나만의 위로 (Healing For Myself): .5/1

All Alone: .75/1

Fans have only know Jaejoong as an idol star, and its refreshing to see him do a genre so different from what we are used to. A lot of times if an idol singer, or idol group releases an album of a certain genre it is still extremely pop-esque, so its nice to see him go all the way with this rock genre, and not be kitschy or chicken out half way through.

Final Score: 4/5
