바비 킴 (Bobby Kim) – Heart & Soul Review
I’m not really familiar with Bobby Kim, but Heart &Soul is something different in Korean music. It could be highlighted as R&B or even slightly a 1950s American Do-wop style. There is definitely an international influence on the music.
Heart & Soul mixes the different styles and influences together well. It sounds very natural and even the guests on the album fit the song that they are featured on. It is even difficult to consider it truly Korean and could easily be attributed as a international release recorded in Korean.
It’s an amazing album and worth listening even with its slightly one year age. I would easily consider Bobby Kim’s release as something special and different from the hip-hop and R&B genres. The fact that it doesn’t fit anything I’ve listened to in Korea or Japan makes it that much more special.
