Korean girl group Secret has released a PV (preview video) for So Much For Goodbye, a track that will apparently feature on the ladies’ second Japanese single, scheduled to drop at the end of the month. (That will make an excellent birthday present for me, I’m just sayin’.)
I’m not normally a fan of K-Pop ballads, but So Much For Goodbye works for me very, very well. Jieun and Hyosung deliver, as expected, but the big revelation is Zinger, who has a remarkably beautiful singing voice, and Sunhwa, who isn’t such a hot mess. (Get this lady a drama!)
Actually, all the girls emote very well in the So Much For Goodbye PV, crying and staring off into the pretty, Etude House-ish set. All decked out in whites and peaches, the ladies of Secret show that they are truly capable of any kind of music. They’ve pulled off a sassy Beyonce-type sound, they’ve done a retro pop sound, they’ve even done Korean folk, and all the songs are pulled off with class and authenticity. In my opinion, Secret is one of the most under-appreciated, yet most talented and hardworking, girl groups in Korea. Admittedly, this is a K-Pop release, but we Secret Agents (Secretimes?) will take what we can get. And this time around, the going got better than we expected.
