Lee Hyori to me is one of Korea's most beautiful woman in the entertainment business. Not only is she a pretty face but also a wonderful singer who I recently discovered. Her new single "Bad Girls" put her in my path as one day being bored, surfed on AllKPop, saw the video for the song and thought "Why not"? For some reason this season, the theme of "bad girls" has been going around first with Lee Hyori's song, CL's "The Baddest Female", then Bumkey's "(Crazy Love) Bad Girl." All in a span of a couple weeks. Tis the season to be a bad girl it seems.
Personally, I think we all have a little of that "bad girl" image in us, the kind where your the "cool" bad girl who strives to be different by not caring what people think and have a mind of your own. I believe you can look at the term "bad girl" and flip it to have two taboo meanings. The "good" bad girl or the one who acts the stereotypical bad girl who flaunts her promiscuity around and likes to party. This entire album has such an easy listen feel to it. Every song flows beautifully together, which doesn't happen often with artist and the order they place the songs, but for the album it works wonderfully. I absolutely love the concept behind the album, strong woman empowering messages and this retro/bluesy/pop sound which fused together creates one awesome record. I won't go through each song but I will highlight the ones that stood out to me the most. Already got "Bad Girls" out of the way so moving on to "Miss Korea".
Fan or not of Lee Hyori, you've got to check out the rest of the album, trust me its worth the listen.
