I know most people might click on this post, thinking that I am about to talk about EXO’s Kai, but please do not be mistaken. The person I am referring to in this post is Jung Ki-yeol, who also goes by the stage name Kai.
Kai is a South Korean singer and musical theatre actor. He has starred in Korean theatre productions of popular musicals like A Tale of Two Cities, The Three Musketeers and Phantom. Most people might recognize him as one of the panellists on the popular singing variety show King of Mask Singer. I discovered him through a performance video that was recommended on YouTube. I was so stunned once he started singing.
Here is the video that introduced me to Kai –
My primary purpose for this post is to recommend his latest album titled Kai In Korea. This album was released on the 29th of October, 2019. It has a total of eight songs.
I am so happy that I was finally able to find it on Spotify. It is such a beautiful album, and even though it might not be the style that a lot of people enjoy, I still felt the need to share. He showcases a classical singing style, which is so relaxing, so anyone should be able to enjoy at least one or two tracks on the album. I love all the songs, but my favourites are – “Bluebird” – “Missing Home” – Promise Me” and – “The Beautiful World.”
Here is a preview of what each song sounds like –
The album is also available on iTunes.
Right now, I am trying to see if I can find English translations for each song. And if I do find any, I will add it to this post as an edit. But even without understanding the lyrics, I really enjoyed listening to this album.
I simply wanted to share a good find with my readers, so I hope you all give Kai In Korea a listen. Also, stay warm because winter is officially here. The snow is going up inch by inch each day, so take care.💕💕
