Kim YoonBum, drummer of ‘Arts of Parties’ told about… “He was never expressed about it, but he likes the collaboration”.
Kim Bada gave two songs to Kim Jaejoong. He told with anticipation…
“He asked me just one but he wanted one more song after recording. I think you can meet ‘New’ Kim Jaejoong who is musically more mature”.
He praised the tense of Jaejoong’s digesting rock music…
“He was exceptional..
I was half a doubt about him because I didn’t know about him.
He was much better than expected after we recorded the 1st song.
He has the attribute to become a rocker.
After recording of 1st song, I gave him a hard-rock song, a little bit stronger than 1st one…
but he didn’t reject it. He also digested it well as the compositional intention”
And he added..
“Rock Band ‘Pia’ also joined in one or two songs as the accompanist. He really make his effort for his 1st solo album”.

**For reference, Kim Bada is the main vocalist of ‘Sinawe’ and ‘Art of Parties’
Pia is very famous rock band in Korea. Actually they became famous because Seo Taiji scouted them to his own label.
Now they belong to another label, not Seo Taiji’s.

The article from dkpopnews isn't the smoothest English so apologies if it's confusing! Does anyone here listen to that band they mentioned, Pia? Are they good? Kim Sung Gyu from Infinite mentioned them too when he was talking about bands he likes.
