DaVichi with SG Wannabe’s Kim Jin-ho is “Timeless”Posted: July 3, 2009
Indeed, good singing is timeless.
In a cloud of bright color and autotuned dance songs, DaVichi and SG Wannabe‘s Kim Jin-ho remind us that there is still hope for the talent known as singing. I have a self-professed love for DaVichi since their debut with “I Hate You Even Though I Love You”, and even though, Mnet Media is steering them toward mainstream tastes, their vocals are undeniably rich and do indeed hold mass appeal. I hold a lot of reverence for SG Wannabe as well, especially Jin-ho, who I find extra amusing because of his histrionic singing gestures.
For yesterday’s Mnet M!Countdown, DaVichi and Jin-ho performed “Timeless,” which was originally sung by American Idols Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini for their horrendous attempt at a movie, “From Justin to Kelly.” There’s also a Korean version sung by DBSK‘s Xiah Jun-su and Jang Ri-in (Zhang Li-yin), but of course, its much more interesting hearing them sing in the original English. DaVichi and Jin-ho have sang this song before in the past on “Yoon Do-hyun’s Love Letter,” but they pack extra power and emotion this time around, and I enjoy counting how many times Jin-ho fiddles with his earpiece. Enjoy~
