7 Years…

July 1, 2009

That’s how long I’ll be in love with KyuHyun’s voice – if it doesn’t turn out to be longer. Ah, maybe you got it, maybe you didn’t but that was just a silly joke referring to his just released solo song which is a remake of YooYoungsook’s ‘7 Years of Love’. Just in case you don’t know, YooYoungsook decided to release an album to mark his 20th anniversary in show business featuring reworked versions of some of his songs (he reworked them himself, I believe) and he chose Kyu to particpate in it and gave him this song to sing.

Anyway, long story short – the song’s finally been officially released (fancams of Kyuhyun singing it at YooYoungsook’s album showcase were floating around the web for about two weeks prior to this) and it’s just beautiful – I’ve been replaying it since I found it a little while ago and I see myself doing so for quite some time to come. It’s a bossa nova rendition of the song and as I’m no bossa nova buff (really, I know next to nothing about it), I was pleasantly surprised to see how well Kyu’s voice suit that style of music. He sounds so breathy and his voice is so light and soothing here – soothing is really the best way to put it. Listening to it, I feel like a spell’s being woven over my mind and as though I’m being lulled off to the very sweetest dreams of Kyu hopefully – it’s equal parts sad and romantic and even though it’s a pretty long song, about 5 and a half minutes, the song just seems to fly by. Every time it ends, I feel a little sad and empty but most of all, surprised that it’s already done. All in all, it’s a really lovely song and definitely something to check out whether you’re a Suju fan or not. I think KyuHyun should be very proud of himself.

You’ll check it out, right? You really should….trust me – you don’t want to miss out on this moving piece of music. Go, watch the videos, you know you want to.

That said, yesterday was my last day of work so I’ll have a good bit more free time on my hands for a little while and will hopefully be a little more active around here as a result – expect lots of posts about old things that you probably already watched a million years ago now. ^^ And let me say a short saengil chukhahae to one of my favourite leaders, Teuk-Teuk-Teukie! I have to do a proper birthday post for him in a little while so I’ll just wish him all the best and all of God’s blessings for now. I hope that he looks at this birthday and sees it for what it is – another year of life passed through safely and a chance for a new beginning in his life should that be what he so desires.

Well, that’s all for now. Ja ne!

  1. Based on the scenes from the MV, it feels like the song is about reminiscing (about one’s love? idk). Or maybe letting go? Because the title is “7 Years of Love” and it suggests that the love doesn’t continue. I haven’t had time to really listen to the lyrics, Kyuhyun’s voice is just so lovely~ XD

    I love that fancam. The lights and that song and his voice produce a dream-like quality to the video. And a nice smile at the end, hahaha. ^^

    Gosh… I really love his voice. He’s definitely on my list of people I want to sing with. ;_;


    • Hmm, I don’t know about letting go but it definitely seems to suggest that there’s some reminiscing going on – maybe it’s just that she’s reminiscing now about a love that lasted for 7 years. Ha, I can see how you’d be distracted.

      I know – the atmosphere created is just lovely. And aww, that shy smile at the end was so cute. He must have felt so accomplished.

      Well, you never know – it could happen. You just have to refuse to give up and keep steadily working towards your dreams. Remember, I believe in you.


  2. I must admit I probably don’t give Kyuhyun as much attention as he deserves (yes, I’m still getting into Suju, slowly but surely) but this will definitely change from now on. I’m happy he got to try a different style of music and it’s great to see that he’s enjoying it too.

    Btw I really like your birthday messages 🙂 They’re so warm and sincere. And ah, my colleague’s going for a holiday in Korea tomorrow. I wish I could squish myself in her suitcase ~


    • Hey, take your time – getting into a group is the best part and there’s a lot of fun to be had while discovering Suju. That said, I didn’t pay much attention to KyuHyun when I first got into the group either but he’s quickly become one of my favourite members. He’s just a big ball of fantastic and his voice is so moving, imo. He actually performed a shorter version of the song again on Sketchbook – here’s a fancam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TchygJHOZ3o
      You should check out some of his other solo performances as well – they’re all lovely. ^_^

      Ah, thank you – that’s so nice of you to say. Now really seems like a good time to go for a holiday in Korea – there’s lots going on music-wise. Maybe we’ll both get to go someday, eh? 🙂
