[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.

Debuting in late 2014, the band Hyukoh is currently receiving attention for their involvement in their year’s Infinity Challenge Music Festival. With their fresh vocals and smooth, classic sounds, Hyukoh is definitely one to add to your favorites.
This song in particular, ‘Wi Ing Wi Ing’ is part of their debut album, “20”. It conveys the emptiness and pessimism one would feel at the end of their teen years. However, Hyukoh was able to relay a comforting mind to those in need, adding their own colors and thus creating ‘Wi Ing Wi Ing’.
Hyukoh consists of 4 members, 임동건 (Im DongGun), 오혁 (Oh Hyuk), 임현제 (Im HyunJae), and 이인우 (Lee In Woo), all born in 1993.
The number 1 track ‘Settled Down’ talks about themselves who can’t settle down, unlike the title name. The 2nd track ‘Comes and Goes’ shows the relationship they had since childhood up until now. They used to live abroad when he was little, and lives in Seoul now. The song shows how the people leave when they feel like they got to know them. Their favorite 5th track ‘Hooka’ shows the feelings that they felt about human relationship in a hugely changed setting in a blunt way. The passion to fill the life’s blank space that is created by non-working society and the wounds is shown in a musical experiment in a more pure way.
