SS501의 메인 보컬 허영생이 발표하는 스페셜 앨범! 지금까지도 미니 앨범 "LET IT GO", "LIFE "에서 팀을 이루는 프로듀싱 팀 SWEETUNE이 함께 참석한 이 작품은 수록곡 모두 하나의 스토리를 구성하는 컨셉 앨범. 
빗소리와 함께 조용한 피아노 선율로 시작한 "가을 길목", 담담한 허영생의 보컬이 돋보이는 인상적인 보사노바 풍의 "휴...", 이별 후 후회를 절절하게 노래하게 된 팝 발라드 "몸이 약한 아이" 등 5 트랙을 수록.

Special album by SS501's main vocalist Heo Young Saeng! This album is produced alongside SWEETUNE, the producing team for past two mini-albums "LET IT GO" and "LIFE". All songs in this album forms a single story, thus a concept album this time round.

followed by bossa nova track "휴..."
pop ballad "몸이 약한 아이" which tells about the regret vividly felt by one after a separation, and etc. 
Total of 5 tracks. 

KRN introduction of each song:-

01. 가을 길목
빗소리와 함께 잔잔한 피아노 선율이 사랑에 대한 추억과 기억들을 떠올리게 하며, 스페셜 앨범 [She] 의 시작을 알리는 곡이다

Accompanied by the sound of rain along with piano. Recalls memory of the love shared.

02. 휴..
어쿠스틱한 편곡으로 보사노바의 느낌을 살렸으며, 헤어진 연인에 대한 그리움의 시작을 독백하듯이 담담하게 불러낸 허영생의 보컬이 매력적인 곡이다.

Bossa nova track with a acoustic arrangement. Talks about starting to miss the lover after the separation.

03. 몸이 약한 아이
"나 좋자고 나 편한 대로 하고 싶은 대로 이별을 했지만 막상 이별 후 돌아오는 건 후회뿐.. 그녀를 놓친 건 결국 나였다."라는 내용을 가사에 담은 타이틀 트랙 '몸이 약한 아이'는 모던록의 색채를 아련한 멜로디에 입힌 팝 발라드로, 가슴을 때리는 리듬 위에 서정적 피아노와 힘있지만 부드러운 기타가 안타까운 노랫말을 더해 허영생의 애잔한 보컬과 함께한다. SS501의 리드싱어 허영생이 힘을 실어 절제하는 보컬리스트로서 한 단계 성장한 모습이 인상적인 곡이다

Title track. Pop ballad with modern rock feel. Talks about regret letting the lover go.

04. 못 다한 이야기
이별 후 아픈 시간을 보내며 가슴속에 쌓인 이야기들을 풀어놓는 이 노래는 댄스비트에 강한 기타리프가 어우러진 brit pop rock 스타일의 곡이다. 신디사이저의 강한 신스로 구성된 메인리프가 옥타브의 음정을 사이에 두고 진행하며 날카로운 리듬 기타가 그 진행을 부각시키는 것이 이 곡의 특징으로 영국의 신스팝을 락과 조화롭게 접목시킨 곡이다.

British pop rock-style track. Talks about the suffering one feels inside the heart after the separation with the lover.

[형준] 9/25 : '사랑은 노래를 타고' 남자 주인공 확정 / Male lead for new KBS1 daily drama '사랑은 노래를 타고'

'금나와라 뚝딱' has only just ended in no less than a week, and here is a new piece of good news!


김형준, KBS 새 일일 '사랑은 노래를 타고' 주인공 낙점…다솜과 호흡

가수 겸 배우로 활동 중인 김형준이 KBS1 새 일일드라마의 남자 주인공으로 낙점됐다.

Singer cum actor Kim Hyung Jun has been chosen as the male protagonist for KBS1 new daily drama.

25일 김형준 소속사 에스플러스는 김형준이 KBS1 새 일일드라마 '사랑은 노래를 타고'(극본 홍영희, 연출 이덕건)'의 남자 주인공으로 캐스팅 됐다고 밝혔다.

On the 25th, his agency S-PLUS Entertainment revealed that he has been cast as the male lead for KBS1's new daily drama 'Love Through Song'.

'사랑은 노래를 타고'는 개인주의적 현 세태에서 가족의 고마움을 깨달으며 타인에게 상처를 준 것을 반성하는 세 가족의 이야기를 그린 작품.

'Love Through Song' depicts the stories of three families where they reflect on the pain they have caused upon others and through the process realize the preciousness of the people around them, and feeling really grateful towards their existence.

극중 김형준은 극단 대표이자 뮤지컬 연출자 태경 역을 맡아, 일에는 완벽주의자이지만 일 외의 모습에서는 한없이 젠틀하고 배려 넘치는 이상적인 남자의 모습을 매력적으로 선보일 예정이다.

In the drama, Kim Hyung Jun plays a musical producer Tae-kyung. At work, he is a perfectionist, but outside work, he is a gentle, considerate and understanding ideal man.

특히 뮤지컬 배우 지망생인 들임 역의 다솜과 연기 호흡을 펼치게 될 예정으로 두 사람의 활약이 기대를 모으게 한다. '지성이면 감천' 후속으로 11월 방송 예정이다.

He will be starring alongside Dasom (SISTAR) who plays an aspiring musical actress. It is expected to air after 'Sincerity Moves Heaven' in November.

한편, 김형준은 새 일일드라마 캐스팅 소식 이외에도 특별 출연한 영화 '배우는 배우다'(감독 신연식)가 올해 부산영화제 한국영화의 오늘 파노라마 부문에 공식 초청돼 10월 초 영화배우로도 첫 영화제(BIFF) 레드카펫을 밟을 예정이다.

On the other hand, Kim Hyung Jun will be making an appearance on the red carpet of Busan International Film Festival 2013 (BIFF) in early October upon invitation with the movie 'Actors are Actors' where he did a special guest appearance.

[현중] 9/17 : '감격시대' 2014.1월로 편성 연기 // KBS 'Inspiring Age' Airing Schedule Confirms For Jan 2014

The drama's initial air date was set to be November 2013. Now, it has been delayed and confirmed for January 2014.

KBS, "'Inspiring Age' is not put off for good.. Airing schedule just delayed"

'Inspiring Age' PD, "Airing Delay? As per request by production side"

KBS Official Statement, "'Inspiring Age' is not being put off for good"

'Inspiring Age', Confirmed as the 1st KBS2 Wed-Thurs drama of 2014

김현중 주연 '감격시대', 내년 KBS 첫 수목드라마 편성 확정
Protagonist Kim Hyun Joong's 'Inspiring Age', Confirmed as the 1st KBS2 Wed-Thurs drama of 2014

배우 겸 가수 김현중 주연의 드라마 '감격시대'가 2014년 첫 KBS 수목 드라마로 전파를 탄다.

'Inspiring Age', which stars actor cum singer Kim Hyun Joong, will be the 1st KBS Wed-Thurs drama of 2014.

'감격시대'의 홍보를 맡은 플레이스 측은 17일 오후 보도자료를 통해 "1930년대 상하이를 무대로 한·중·일 낭만주먹들의 세계를 그려나갈 '감격시대'는 150억이 넘는 제작비를 쏟아 붇는 초대형프로젝트로 KBS의 2014년 최고의 기대작이다"며 "상하이를 주요 배경으로 하는 만큼 중국 현지 초대형 야외 세트장이 준비되고 있으며, 촉박한 일정에도 불구하고 완성도 높은 드라마를 선보이기 위한 제작진과 출연진의 노력이 1월 편성 확정으로 더욱 탄력을 받을 것으로 기대된다"고 밝혔다.

The PR for 'Inspiring Age', PLACE (transliteral) revealed in a press release on 17th, "'Inspiring Age' which has a production cost of 15 billion won and more will be KBS' 2014 Blockbuster". He added, "Shanghai, China will be the main background location we will be shooting at; a huge outdoor set is also currently in midst of preparations. Despite a tight schedule, in order to show to our audiences a drama with high quality produced with our production team, staff and actors' hard efforts, we believe we can anticipate a stronger synergy with the confirmation of a January 2014 airing schedule".

이어 "현재 제작사인 레이앤모는 중국 현지 촬영을 위해 상하이미디어그룹(SMG)과 손을 잡고 내달부터 본격적인 촬영을 진행하기로 했다"면서 "중국 상해 최대규모인 상하이미디어그룹(SMG)은 현지의 인허가를 비롯한 촬영 전반에 대한 전폭적인 지원을 약속했다고 한다"고 전했다.

"Production team Ray&mo will be teaming up with the Shanghai Media Group(SMG) with regards to shooting in China, and will be starting official shooting beginning next month", "Shanghai, China's biggest scaled Shanghai Media Group(SMG) has promised to render their complete support towards matters pertaining to shooting such as local licensings, and etc".

배우들도 해외 로케이션이나 제반 준비 상황 때문에 촬영 일정이 어느 정도 늦춰지리라는 상황을 인지하고 있던 터라 방영 시기보다는 드라마의 완성도가 더 중요하다는 데 뜻을 모으고 있다는 게 '감격시대' 측의 설명이다. "1월 편성이 확정됨으로 '감격시대'의 배우와 제작진은 심기일전하는 분위기로 돌입해 더욱 좋은 작품으로 시청자를 만나겠다는 각오를 다지며 더욱 뜨겁게 촬영에 대한 열의를 불태우고 있다"는 전언이다.

They have also explained that the actors understand that the shooting schedules are being compromised here and there due to overseas location shooting as well as production preparations, but they too also feel that it is more important for the drama to come out well, more so than the drama's airing issue. "With the now-confirmed airing schedule to be in the coming January, our actors and production team has since taken a turn in the state of minds as we will now all work harder to produce an even better work for our audiences and put in our might for the shooting".

'감격시대'는 화려한 스케일과 액션으로 1930년대 한·중·일을 대표하는 '낭만주먹'들이 펼쳐내는 사랑과 의리, 우정의 환타지를 보여줄 감성 로맨틱 느와르다. 김현중과 함께 배우 임수향과 조동혁, 한정수 등이 캐스팅돼 촬영을 준비 중이다.

'Inspiring Age' is a romantic noir set in the 1930s Shanghai which depicts about Love, Loyalty and Friendship. The drama stars Kim Hyun Joong, Lim Soo Hyang, Kim So Eun, Jo Dong Hyuk, Han Jung Su, etc and are in midst of drama preparations.

His agency added, "It's merely only almost a month into the release of this 3rd album; despite so the love and support from domestic and foreign fans shown has given Kim Hyun Joong huge strength", "And so he's determined to show a even better side of his with every stage", as they expressed gratitude.
