After single-handedly reinventing ballet with her leg-warmers-and-ribbons solo teaser, Park Ji-yeon continued her quest to snatch Park Ji-yoon's wig today by revealing some exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from her music video or album shoot or whatever the hell she was doing.
Skinny goddess Park Ji Yoon has had an interesting career. She started out as a teen idol in the '90s, and later staged what is probably still the most iconic good girl gone bad transformation in K-pop history with "Coming of Age Ceremony." In her twenties, Ji Yoon took a more active role in the direction of her music, breaking out of the idol mould but suffering a commercial decline because of it.
Despite losing some footing on the charts, K-diva releases never stopped being great, but 2013 is the first time in years that they've been good enough to rival --if not surpass-- music from idol groups. Just off the top of my head, I can think of Lee Hyori's "Miss Korea" and "Bad Girls," Seo In Young's "Let's Break Up" and "Love Me,"Lee Jung Hyun's "V,"Sunmi's "24 Hours," and Kahi's "It's Me," all of which were basically perfect. Even the stuff that wasn't universally loved, like Ailee's Beyonce knock-off "U&I" and G.NA's Mariah b-side "Oops!" were great to me. (The only song I didn't like so far was Ivy's "I Dance," which is strange because she's usually one of the best female soloists around.)
We've now got another song to add to the hit list with Park Ji Yoon's "Mr. Lee."
