Gummy (real name Park Ji Yeon) is a member of the YG family and Loveless is her first Japanese mini-album. Similar to other K-Pop artists who cross over this album contains covers of her Korean songs including Kirei na Anata which is the Japanese version of her theme song to the drama A Moment to Remember; and a cover of I’m Sorry (renamed Gomen ne) featuring label mate T.O.P. from Big Bang.
Unlike most of the YG roster Gummy’s songs are more on the softer side and she is primarily known as a ballad singer. That might turn off a lot of you right there but she’s got a really nice voice suited for those kinds of songs. It’s not like the entire album is chest thumping, over the top balladry.
There’s a nice mix of mid-tempo songs to keep things interesting. K-Pop fans can probably figure out which songs are recycled material fairly quickly. But if you’re new to her (like me) you probably won’t be able to tell the difference anyway. I found the lot of songs to be some relaxing and chilled out stuff. It’s nice to not be bombarded with Electro Pop beats for a little while.
I found Love Recipe and Gomen ne to be the most appealing songs but to be honest, there isn’t a bad track on this mini-album. That’s saying a lot considering that ballad singers can whip out some real sleep inducing stuff most times.
