SM Ent’s been pumping out so many single and outright novelty tracks from their stable of artists that I never even got around to checking out this Hyoyeon debut: even though I did have a vague idea it was out there somewhere:
It’s not as exciting for me as f(X) Luna’s “Free Somebody”, which is something of a cult track around here. Still, I have to give Hyoyeon some credit with this: given her reputation as the Dancing Machine, this allows her to shake around in a relatively revealing “funky” attire without getting too raunchy, and her vocals, while never going to be competitive with the upper rung of SNSD, suit this material and even have a surprisingly sweet and intimate quality– sultry but not too sultry. I guess I had always feared this would be something ridiculous but now I see it turned out pretty well. So, props to Hyoyeon for that!
