Super Junior D&E Makes a Sweet Confession in “‘Bout You”
Super Junior D&E is finally back in the Korean music industry after waiting for five years! Super Junior D&E is the fifth official sub-unit of the group Super Junior, which consists of the members Donghae and Eunhyuk. ‘Bout You is their first full-length Korean album other than their Japanese albums released in 2014 and 2018.
The title track, “머리부터 발끝까지 (‘Bout You)” is an upbeat trap and hip-hop song that ends the summer season perfectly with their charismatic dancing and singing and unique flute sounds throughout the song. Eunhyuk shows off his rap skills with multiple rap verses while Donghae shows off his singing skills. In the music video, the duo is having fun at a bright bar while making a sweet confessing to their lover. The whole music video gives off western vibes where it was shot in New York, with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background of their dance scene.
“RUM DEE DEE” is an electronic hip-hop song with a distinct and catchy drum and bass beats. This song is perfect for those times when you want to listen to some music and dance along to the song. “여름밤 (I Love It)” is a perfect love confession song because of the soothing and nostalgic beats. This song gets you to remember those happy moments in your life. “Livin’ In” is one of my favorite songs on the album because of the soft singing matching with the snapping fingers in the beginning of the song which then escalates to a more soft electronic song.
“백야(白夜) (Evanesce Ⅱ)” is considered a second part to “Evanesce” released with the full group, Super Junior. This song is perfect for those days when you just want to stay at home to spend time by yourself to relax and think. “지독하게 (Lost)” has a country feel to the song and reminds me of a song you would listen to when you are on a road trip with friends while having fun and laughing together. “Illusion (Obsessed)” is another favorite because of its mysterious vibe with the eerie piano playing in the beginning of the song that transitions into a hip-hop track. The catchy beat of the song grabs many listeners’ attention because of its many transitions from hip-hop to soft vocals. “Victory” is a special track of the album which is an acoustic song and is dedicated specifically for fans. This is actually the perfect song to end the album, with its thankful message towards fans and always being there for them.
Super Junior D&E has finally returned for fans, don’t forget about them! They were able to show their perfectly constructed singing and dancing skills that they have been working on for years. Please support and love Super Junior D&E as they continue their promotions!
