AkMu covers Taeyang’s “Eyes, Nose, Lips” (YG Cover Project 001)

Sibling duo Akdong Musician released a video cover of Taeyang’s song “Eyes, Nose, Lips” as the first of what promises to become a series of covers from YG artists.

When YG first announced the project, I was wondering how AkMu would handle the cover given that their young age and the songs’ meaning seemed to be an awkward match.  While both Lee Soo- hyun and Lee Chanhyuk handled it somberly in keeping with the serious theme, they put their spin on it with a little mash-up and rap mid song.  Soo-hyun in particular, always sounds lovely but I don’t know if this is a type of song I would want to hear from them again.  Despairing love songs is usually a better match for older (and sadly,  more brokenhearted) singers. That said, it’s nice to see some experimentation among YG artists – who knows where this little bout of boldness could lead? (cough-mixtape-cough.)

    1. Wasn’t my cup of tea, honestly. Probably fanservice for AkMu fans since their promotion was cut short by the Sewol tragedy? With YG, I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be a “series” of 1 or 2 and then gets forgotten.
