Many of my friends are amazed how I could be a fan of an artist and remain very loyal for so many years despite the ups and down of the artist. Guess that is where my strength are after all….
Ryu Si Won (류시원) is a South Korean actor and singer that make his debut in 1994. However, I only first discover him back in 2005 through the drama Wedding (웨딩) starring one of my favorite actress, Jang Na Ra (장나라). It is true his character in the drama that caught my attention to Ryu Si Won (류시원).
Upon discovering that he also sings and is in fact a very popular artist in Japan, I started following his music more than his acting. And of course his news…. All fans would do the same after all!
A photographer who produces his own promo photos, he was the photographer behind Go So’s photo diary, “24 Hours with Go Soo” that spans approximately 100 shots which were also produced as a DVD.
The first Korean artist to hold two live concerts at the Tokyo Dome in December 2008, he held his 100th solo concert in Japan back in 2011. A true testament of his popularity in Japan.
I had truly love his songs which were mainly produced in Japanese. I remember clearly during my first few visit to Japan, visiting Tower Record is a must. And what I do when I am there, I ask for his albums. Whatever I could find on the shelves, I would just grab them and pay without checking the price. And my first time ended up with close to USD450 worth of CDs. My favourite… is this titled: Season
After his divorce scandal between him and his ex-wife back in 2012 / 2013, he remained under the radar. And only concentrating on his racing team in Japan.
End of 2015, he finally announce that he would be returning back into the entertainment industry. And since then, I had anticipated and wait for the release of his new album.
Wish is finally released in October 2016. Imagine my joy upon hearing about the release of the album. Unfortunately, it took me a while to got a hold of this new album. The joy of finally holding the CD in my hand….
Wish has the same titled Budokan concert that was held in November 2016. And this new album has a total of 7 new tracks.
1. Journey ~in my love~
5. ヌンムルロ グデヌン
All these beautiful tracks in Ryu Si Won (류시원) new album, Wish has been on my listening list for about a week. Among these, my favourite is definitely these two:
Journey ~in my love~
