When I realized that actor/model/Coffee Prince waffle boy Kim Jae Wook’s band Walrus was about to release its first single I decided not to pay too much attention. Having seen the band in question perform covers at GMF2009, I wasn’t overly impressed then and now I wasn’t curious enough to hear for myself if they actually had any real skills. The last few days I’ve realized I was being superficial again.
The self-titled single was released on January 24. Kamala-Chan named second track Mozaic “K-RoK Song of the Day” a day later and last week Johnelle of Seoulbeats included Walrus in the 5 Things I LOVED in Kpop This Week post. Found Magazine agreed that Walrus was more than a pretty face, and just now Chris Park posted a review over at wakesidevision where he concluded that it was one of the year’s most interesting releases: Walrus – Self-Titled Review
Dramabeans has a well written post on the three track release accompanied by some really nice photos: Kim Jae-wook’s band releases single.
If you have yet to hear Walrus yourself, check out the music video for To Be.
So glad you posted about Walrus! I’ve been really enjoying their songs. ^_^
Feel kinda bad for not giving them another chance sooner. I really did like To Be though so I gotta check those other songs out too ^^
is it a digital album or a real one – cos i like to buy it, but can’t find it anywhere :/
The album is available on YesAsia.
