In spite of the lunar new year holiday a fresh episode of I Am A Singer (나는 가수다) aired today, January 22. The theme was soundtracks and Tei had opted for Can‘s 내 생에 봄날은, used in 2001/2002 SBS drama Piano (피아노). In the mid-round performance he offered a bossa nova version, that didn’t suit the tastes of his comedian manager or co-competitors so for the actual performance the arrangement had been reworked into more of a rock/synth number.
The arrangement was done by Tei’s fellow Handsome People member Choi Youngho, who also played keyboard on stage. Backing him further were Bae Youngjoon and Han Jaewon of Whale alongside Funky Brown‘s Uhm Joo Hyuk.
Sadly, I haven’t been able to keep up with the show once Jaurim departed. I’ll have to play catch up soon, so I can keep an eye out for possible new indie activity on it.
I’m curious to see who will come on next time. Will make sure to let you know if there’s anything to warrant a revival of the commentary series already ^^
