Juniel has released the full MV to “Fool,” featuring CN Blue‘s Yong Hwa. Check it out:
Believe it or not, but I’m not a very big fan of Yong Hwa’s compositions, mainly because they all sound the same to me. I don’t mean they sound the same because they were composed with the same breath as its composer’s work, but because they utilize the same freaking components without very much change. Okay, so I have to clear a few things up about this little section, because I made a very honest mistake in confusing Yong Hwa’s work with that of Kim Do Hoon, who composes CN Blue’s lead singles (whoops). By the sound of his work, Yong Hwa obviously approves of the ish Do Hoon tosses his way, so I’m going to establish that he at least likes what he does as well as is inspired by his work. However, in no way are they the same person, so in that respect I apologize for directing my ill feelings at the wrong person.
That being said, the rest of this section applies just as well as I intended it to, because I do feel that Yong Hwa brought a very CNB element to this song when I don’t necessarily feel he should have.
… I feared that Yong Hwa would make this song more about him than Juniel, and I’ve been proven right. The chords, the style, and the phrasing have all been heard by CN Blue and Yong Hwa has passed down the
curse CNB vibes onto Juniel.
I’m not saying that I dislike this song or that CNB’s style is no bueno, because it’s got its charms, but I’m hoping Juniel found ways of delivering music that is true to who she is rather than music that Yong Hwa obviously took control of to reflect his own taste in her own songs, because I want to get to know Juniel for Juniel through and through. Then I would be okay with these collaborative tracks.
On another note, the MV is really pretty. Juniel also has a really nice voice, so I’ll be looking forward to her mini, My First June, which should be dropping any minute now.
