Talking to Arianna on the 17th I told her about the two new features I came up with for the blog, Mellow Monday has to be our favourite of the two. We are both massive music lovers, spanning across many genres and languages, and we would love recommending and telling you about the music we love. We are going to do one each bi-weekly giving us both enough time to cultivate a good-read post.
So today is my first Mellow Monday post! And today I’m going to share with you SECHSKIES. Now SECHSKIES are very old Korean-pop group. Not to go into too much detail, whereby this becomes a biography – they debuted back in 1997, when I was a wee baby of 1 years old, and had an amazing career. They had a ‘rival’ band called H.O.T – I say rival band, but it’s like the friendly rivalry between Take That and East 17. They were signed under DSP Entertainment and had an amazing stage presence, a massive fanclub and some really touching and incredible songs. Many fans were distraught when they disbanded back in 2000 – what a start to millennium.
The reason I am sharing my love for SECHSKIES, is because this year in 2016, they have made a comeback! They have remastered some of their classic and most popular songs. The one at the top is from 1998 and it’s called Couple. I love how simplistic and mellow the song is. It really shows the progression of K-pop from when they first debuted to now with modern bands storming the charts.
I’m not going to say I came out the womb being a YellowKies (formally DSF – this is their fanclub name), but I learnt of them and my affection for the band grew after religiously watching the drama ‘Reply 1997’ – There is a post in the making about good dramas I think you should watch ^.^
So I’ll end this post here with another of my favourite songs called Three Words
