[Classic Kpop] G.O.D _ 니가 있어야 할 곳 (The Place Where You Need to Be)

G.O.D _ 니가 있어야 할 곳 (The Place Where You Need to Be) OFFICIAL AUDIO 

‘니가 있어야 할 곳 (The Place Where You Need to Be)’ is the fifth track from G.O.D’s fourth album “Chapter 4”. Although it was not an official title track, it still was one of the promotional tracks that received many love from fans and listeners.

My first G.O.D song I encountered was ‘어머님께 (To Mother)’. However, the song that got me into G.O.D was ‘니가 있어야 할 곳 (The Place Where You Need to Be)’. The song was a nice break from the continuous ballads they are known for (but of course they have their own fill of faster tracks as well).  Joon’s “Like this y’all to the break of dawn can you feel me everybody come on!” got me jamming whenever along with the funky beat and vocals. ‘니가 있어야 할 곳 (The Place Where You Need to Be)’ is one of my favorites from G.O.D and always will be.

2015 무한도전 영동고속도로 가요제 (Infinity Challenge Music Festival)

[IMO] My view on 2015 Infinity Challenge Music Festival (무한도전 영동고속도로 가요제)

Out of all the music festivals “Infinity Challenge” offered, I found this year to be the most promising. Right from the start, the musicians performing alongside the members is already known to be very appealing with their music, so I was not worried. However, I wondered how the members of Infinity Challenge would be able to cooperate with the musicians’ individuality in music. Nevertheless, after watching the final products, my qualms were unnecessary.
