“His eyes show many expressions, but the one that left the deepest impression is the sadness in his eyes.”
The interview with Shin Hyesung was very lighthearted, because we weren’t talking just about whatever about Shin Hyesung, but rather a focused chat about ‘Keep Leaves’.
“It’s easy to make an album where most efforts are placed on the title track and the first few songs, and then just doing a slipshod job for the songs at the end. But I don’t want to do that. Because this is my album.”
It could be his self-consciousness as a musician, or his stubbornness regarding his albums, but he definitely did not use his time to come up with two ‘makeshift’ albums.
Moreover, “once I decide to produce the album, I’ll put in my all to do it well”, he works hard to move in that direction. One becomes a true musician or actor when he gives it his best efforts, instead of relying on his name, to get results. So Shin Hyesung is a true singer who hasn’t been eroded by his background as an idol-turned-solo singer.
