Another round of Immortal Song 2!
I think I’ve been staying home on weekends more nowadays, because of this show, because of all the little surprises and gems that I get to discover from it. It’s a wonderful and gratifying feeling, the pure indulgence in music, the appreciation of heart and emotion shown, the immersing of your body heart and soul into a 4 minute trance. I don’t think I can ever have enough of it.
My discovery this week on KBSW’s IS2 Deulgukhwa Special: –
Ha Dong Kyun, another singer who came out of nowhere. Another Moon Myung Jin who has camera phobia, another singer who’d shied away from the stage for years. I had the biggest surprise and reaction the minute he sang, the minute his voice filled the stage, I went o____o, one almost couldn’t feel his pervading nervousness, as he’d claimed. He was so camera shy before he stepped on stage I almost thought and feared he’d falter or go off pitch, I almost wanted to go pat him in the back and calm him down. But when he sang, oh when he did, BAM WOW, now that’s singing with everything that you have, and as if you’ve only got that to rely on. I certainly did not see THAT coming. Even victor of Part 1 Jung Dong Ha’s wonderful performance couldn’t beat the impact of an impression HDK’d left with me (in fact my fav performances of Part 1 were Ha Dong Kyun > 4Men > Jung Dong Ha > JK Kim Dong Wook/Youme > Jay Park).
It was a powerful and outreaching performance, combined with what every singer on IS2 has been giving thus far, his best effort and his everything. That’s a voice I’d remember for sure.
This show again proves how much Korea has to offer.
IS2 DAEBAKKKKKK! <333
