Super Junior has come back with a new album entitled Sexy, Free, and Single. It contains 10 tracks of a combination of both lively and ballad songs.
I’ll start with the teaser photos. Super Junior never fails to surprise the fans with new concept every year. This year wasn’t an exception. Super Junior released photos that showcased high fashion pictures, make up, and hairstyle. They focused more on the face part for every member and there were reactions like “it’s too girly” or “wow he looks better than a girl”. Either way, it just shows that Super Junior can be beautiful in any type of look. This was definitely out of their comfort zone. This is one step higher in showing fans the typical sexy Kpop look.
The music video showcased different settings with only one concept. Super Junior dancing in a box is not a new one for the fans but I do not think I will comment deeply on it because as I said, fans are used to this. Nevertheless, I will still wait for the day that SM Entertainment gives Super Junior a new and different concept in a video like the one in their No Other music video.
Now it’s time to talk about the physical album itself. I do not know why Super Junior kept this tradition from Mr. Simple album in producing really large albums. It's more expensive especially for international fans because we get this album shipped from Korea. Nevertheless, I think Super Junior is in the stage wherein whatever album they release, people would buy it. Good thing they still continue to produce quality albums and this time, I think it's one of their best.
Sexy, Free, and Single is a charismatic song to begin with and Super Junior performing doubles the intensity. I like the beat of this song and the choreography! How crazy is that! The level of difficulty is not that high but I think if ever other groups would perform the song; it wouldn't be as cool and as charismatic as Super Junior. The only problem I had was the lyrics >.< Come on!! How ridiculous is it to have lyrics like "Sexy, Free, and Single. I'm ready too. Bingo"?? It doesn't make sense that much :( At first I thought it was "Sexy, Free, and Single. I'm ready to mingle". I do not have high expectations with the English lyrics of a Koop song but it is in English and people around me are English speakers. I have friends who are not into Koop and those hearing this kind of lyrics will give them more reasons to not like Koop. My point is, Koop songs are already hard to sell to those who are not a fan of it and I just hope artists or companies won't give them more reason to hate Koop like putting funny English phrases in their songs. But then again, haters are always going to hate!
Overall it’s a still an album to rave for. A Super Junior album is always very worth it with the quality of its songs. They are also one of the Kpop groups who reach out to the fans and become very touched whenever there’s outrageous support from the people. Support Super Junior by purchasing their album Sexy, Free, and Single.
