Review

Park Yeeun (a.k.a. Yenny) is a member of the K-Pop super group the Wonder Girls. With her group on indefinite hiatus due to Sunye’s marriage and pregnancy and the departure of Sohee from the JYP label; Yeeun announced she would be making a solo debut under the pseudonym HA:TFELT.

Me is comprised of seven songs jointly written, composed and arranged with Collapsedone and features collaborations with fellow Wonder Girls member Lim and rapper Beenzino. The material on Me is fairly moody and runs a gambit of emotions including joy, sorrow and longing.

Songs like Truth and Ain’t Nobody are prime examples of that range of feelings coming to life musically and probably not in the way that most Wonder Girls fans are used to. The most radio friendly track is Wherever Together with its strong EDM influences and it’s probably the one song that mainstream listeners who want a taste of that old flavor will gravitate to the most.

The mid-tempo Peter Pan is probably another track that those who want a conventional pop sound can go to. It is simple song that follows the less is more philosophy. Which one you go for will depend on what you are in the mood for.

When listening to this album don’t expect an offshoot of the Wonder Girls. This is about as far from the bubblegum pop of that group as one can get. HA:TFELT is a completely different persona and should be treated as separate entity from Yenny.

With that said this EP as a whole is some fairly badass stuff if you’re one who doesn’t mind a bit of left field or emotional indie pop music. At the very least it shows there is some life after the Wonder Girls for the remaining members who choose to pursue a solo career.
