I didn't know that J-Min was signed to SM Entertainment. J-Min is a solo artist that has done some OSTs in the past and is well-known for her ballad music style. Yesterday, or the day before, she released a new song “Alive” through SM Entertainment's YouTube channel. I've already listened to the song, but I'll add my thoughts and opinions about the song anyway.
The music video was about wanting to reverse time. A girl is embraced by her lover. An hourglass ticks away the moments. The lover walks away leaving the girl heartbroken. A light burns out. The theme from this music video is quite simple, but extraordinarily beautiful. Of course there are scenes of J-Min singing with her piano player in the background. A lot of the video has a dark filter and a sort of illuminary effect on the camera causing everything to seem blurry and over-saturated with light.
First off, I love J-Min's voice. She has a very distinct voice that is easily recognizable whenever she sings, especially when she sings high notes. I love the way her voice sounds when she sings with power and emotion. The song is a very moving song and isn't like many ballads in that the focus isn't strictly on vocals, but the spotlight is shared with the instrumentals. There is an enormous instrumental break between the first chorus and the second verse. This is so well done, that everything after that is intensified. Good job SM for putting this song out and most of all, having J-Min sing it. I know many other SM artists could easily master this song, but having J-Min do it, makes it her own.
