Nice ballad, as can always be expected of Park Jin Young. 2AM sings well, but their singing resembles JYP’s so much that I suspect they practise by imitating Park’s demo version ^^” Many Korean singers excel in powerful and deeply expressive singing, but JYP does it differently. Instead of building up tension by increasing volume on long notes, he tends to cut it short. JYP’s slow songs are moving in his own style, and that’s his trademark. Hope 2AM will offer something different as their second plug, rather than a direct copy of JYP =)

Speaking of similar boy groups, still I like 2AM’s voice better than Happy Chair (해피체어) but prefer I the Tri top as they seem to have more of their own style.

P. S.  This song uses one of my favourite chord progressions – 7th chords with a descending bassline =) i.e.  DM7  C#m7  Bm7  AM7
