Yesterday we talked about Gackt and what inspires me when it comes to him and his work.
Today we’re going to be talking about another person who has inspired me in many ways.
Jonghyun (from SHINee)
Let’s see if the next two people also have picture like this hahahaha.
Most people who know me privately would probably be expecting Jonghyun to be mentioned.
It’s funny but I like to say that I learned a lot from him. He hosts a radio show every night, and hearing someone speak about the normal everyday issues we all have, I think that there is a lot to learn from him.
He is one of the few people that inspire me not only as a musician but also as a human.
Musically, I enjoy most (if not all) of the things he has released, be it his own songs, compositions or lyrics even if it’s just something that he has made for another artist to perform.
His lyrics are sometimes extremely deep while still being open enough to let you fill it with your imagination.
This is something I’m trying to learn, it’s beautiful and something I always wanted to do.
And to be honest, you don’t really need to look at a songs credits to know if Jonghyun has been involved or not, he has this special signature feel that he leaves behind in everything. It’s amazing.
And I’m a big fan of the way he sings.
Honestly, managing to come as far as he has come as a musician in the Korean entertainment industry is inspiring enough as it is.
Not many idols have the talent nor the possibility to prove that they can be more than only idols.
I’ll leave you with two of his solo songs (today was also hard to pick)…
(this song always go straight into my heart)
See you tomorrow with the next inspiration~
