부활 5집 [Discovery of Fire]

Boohwal’s 5t album {불의 발견] Discovery of Fire, originally released in 1997. This album was recently re-produced, and may I say, with difficulty, after 14 years.

The image you see on the left is actually the new edition – the original one has the letters “부활 V 불의 발견” is white (or silver). Another different thing about this new edition is that, a special bonus track is inserted, no other than “Secret” (비밀) which was the first Collaboration Project Boohwal made with the original vocal for this 5th album, 박완규 (Park Wan-Gyu).

Of course, additional pages are also inserted in dedication to the Collaboration Song “Secret”, which hit the first place in many music charts in Korea as it was released~ this is important, coz the original Boohwal 5th album didn’t have anything to do with neither bassist Seo Jae-Hyuck nor drummer Chae-Jemin, who respectively joined Boohwal with the release of the 7th and 6th album.

The original members of Boohwal for the 5th album was bassist 정준교 (Jeong Jun-Gyo), drummer 정동철 (Jeong Dong-Cheol), guitarist Kim Tae Won, and vocalist Park Wan-Gyu. I got the picture on the right side from one Korean blogger, but it didn’t pin-point who’s who. Surely the guy in the center was Park Wan Gyu and Kim TaeWon’s on top-right. And 2 of the rest 3 have got to be Jeong Jun-Gyo and Jeong Dong-Cheol. Not sure who the 5th person is, but my guess is 최승찬 (Choi Seung-Chan) who used to play session on the keyboard for Boohwal from the 4th to 6th album.

This 5th album contains the songs:

1. Lonely Night
2. 슬픈 바램
3. 21c 불경기
4. 작은 너에게
5. 또 다른 미로
7. 믿음
8. 회상
9. 불의 발견 I
10. 불의 발견 II
11. 불의 발견 III

and ‘”비밀” (Secret) as special bonus track~

Personally, I find this album simply awesome. If you’re interested to hear a different color of Boohwal’s music, this 5th album will not disappoint you. For fans of hard-rock, I’d recommend 믿음 (belief). And 불의 발견 [Discovery of Fire] trilogy will present you with a strong instrumental synergy~ 🙂

In additional note, please know that the 7th album [Color] is also being re-produced, and will be back in the market from 20 June 2011!! Don’t wait until it’s too late to get yours! 🙂

이성욱 오빠 축하 드리고요, 재혁오빠도 부활에 들어가셔서 첫 앨범인 만큼 많이 애를 썼었죠 ^^ 축하하고 감사합니다~ 🙂

[9th Album] Over the Rainbow

Boohwal’s 9th Album, “Over the Rainbow”, released in 2003, and the repackage series released in 2004. This was before Jeong Dong Ha joined Boohwal. The band had 5 members then. Aside from Kim Tae Won on guitar, Seo Jae Hyuck on bass, and Chae Je Min on drum, Eom Soo Han (keyboard) and Jeong Dan (vocal) were in the band.

The 9th album also marked Boohwal’s first attempt to get into the Chinese market, by making the Chinese version of “아름다운 사실” (Beautiful Truth) titled 美麗的事實 in Chinese. And I’ve only known today that they also remade the song “사랑할수록”  (The More I Love) and made a Chinese version of it for the repackage version of this album, titled 雪夜的街* in Chinese.

*my Chinese friend translates it as “the street in a snowy night”

부활 1집 [Rock Will Never Die]

Boohwal’s first album. Released in 1986. One unique thing about Boohwal, being a Korean band where rock doesn’t sell that much, they wrote and composed all of their songs. Except for this one album, which has 2 songs written and composed by non-band member. As hard as it was for a first step, for five young men in their early twenties and some even younger, their hard work finally paid off by the release of this album “Rock Will Never Die”.
