A song which goes for more than what the title says. Kim Sung Gyu, aka. Leader of the boy band Infinite has finally made his well anticipated debut as a rock singer. This is quite remarkable as I was expecting some track like a dance song or similar to the bands past top songs. I was blown away from the unexpected songs this guy threw at us!
Anyway, the song is a mash-up between a ballad and rock song, with the song pretty well done. The song is quite interesting. I really like the use of the instruments in this song. Though this is not the best song out there, I still really like this song. I focuses on drawing out our past relationships and make us remember the horrible times we had. I like his voice in this song. Not really keen on the songs he sings with his band, but this genre definitely fits his voice really well. I really like the way he sings the chorus and says the word “story”. Very interesting.
The music video is quite confusing. This guy is walking in the sunshine and notices this pretty girl. The world stops for “60 Seconds” so he can admire her, but she does not catch him and continues her job at the cafe. He realizes she is his long lost girlfriend or something. He then proceeds to get her attention by following her into the cafe and not paying for the coffee he ordered. He leaves the ring behind and walks away. The girl however notices the ring, and runs to return it, however soon notices that eh is her long lost boyfriend, who broke up ages ago. All during this time, they have flashbacks of their happy past. Yeah, confusing. I was not sure if he was her boyfriend or not or ex, or just some random stranger, as the music video does not properly give this detail to us straight forwardly.
The performance is really good actually. It seems like he has his moments with the microphone, as if it is his long lost girlfriend.
9/10. Really good for a debut.
