RealSlow is back ya’ll!!!
If you thought he was just going to go into the military without one last Hazzah, you were sadly mistaken. He has released one more mini-album before his leave. And, in my opinion, this new album is probably his best yet.
For those of who are not familiar with him, Wheesung is the R&B Prince of Korea. He is known far a wide for his vocal talents and lyric writing. Some may not be into his older R&B songs but are more familiar with his pop songs like “Insomnia” and more recently “Words That Freeze My Heart.” He is as respected as Rain is in the KPOP industry and is looked up to by many singers and wannabe singers. With all the really big icons of KPOP such as BIGBANG, TVXQ, and 2NE1 leading the craze lately, its easy to forget out the ones who started the craze in the first place and put the dream in the ones who are leading it now.
