Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, the third for August 2014. Although there were a number of very interesting new releases this week, we’ve chosen the solo debut release from Taemin (태민 from Shinee / 샤이니). The song is titled “Danger” (괴도) and it was released on Friday August 15th. In those two days the video has been viewed over 950,000 times on YouTube. Here are our reasons for choosing “Danger” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song has a nice flow and highlights Taemin’s vocal skills beautifully.
  • Secondly the video doesn’t have much of a storyline but is nice and artist.
  • Finally Taemin is a key member of the KPOP super group Shinee, but has shown with this release he’s strong enough to be a solo artist.
  • On the negative side; the start of the song sounds a little over produced.
