I only know about Lee Seung Hwan/李承煥 from Tei’s impersonation of him on Xman Fell in love with his “천일동안(For 1000 days)” straight away. I guess this is what you call ‘classics’ or ‘evergreens’ coz the song is still great considering its well-received melody, beautiful arrangement, and Lee’s expressive singing, despite the fact that it was released 12 years ago.
Nice to know that he’s still around in the Kpop scene and has just released a new single. Like his slow ballad best. Here’s the MV:
이승환 – “내 맘이 안 그래 (Nae mami an geu lae)”
Lee Seung Hwan – “My heart isn’t like that”
Track 2 / Mini album “Mallang” / Released 1 Nov 2007
Nice arrangement. Love the waltz-like intro and the syncopated piano chords in the interlude.
이승환 – “천일동안 (Cheon il dong an)”
Lee Seung Hwan – “For 1000 days”
Live on KBS2 YDH Love Letter – 2007.05.04
Track 1 / Album “Human” / Released June 1995
The video did not include the first part of the song. It’s a pity we can’t hear the buildup in volume and intensity. Nonetheless, it’s too good not to post up =) Lee does not have a very powerful sort of voice, but I guess it’s the versatility and his gush of emotions that touch the audience. That’s quite confronting for me actually… ^^”
