김보경 (Kim Bo Kyung) – The First Day Review
Moving from the most recent release to the older music seems to be a trend for me right now. 김보경 is one of the upcoming artists that I’m keeping my eye on. Even though she’s slightly entrenched in Korean pop and that market, her mini-album Growing, I saw immense potential.
Her first mini-album, The First Day, focuses more on her vocals than her first release. The rock ballad theme that goes through the release fits her voice well. The one thing I noticed during her audition on Superstar K was that her voice wasn’t the most on point in melody, but there was something when she sang that came out.
The First Day hints on this special talent, but doesn’t hit the same emotion that the audition did. This release showed a good start, that’s for sure.
