This album compromises a bit between original, arranged songwriter’s music with pop/rock arrangements (acoustic guitar, drums, electric piano) with additionally produced strings (and some female back vocalist) and more mainstream save heaven of ballad songs, this inspiration still lies still within the area of writing original music. However the arrangements and songs never are too originally outstanding, even though they could work in an enjoyable way.
Taken out for airplay: track 10, which has Korean folk flavors and certain progressive moves in the music.
After a later, second listen I think it is better for western listeners to leave this album for what it is, to avoid it.
