Known for wistful music, The Rose is often compared to bands like Day6. However, this quartet can definitely hold their own. Their first mini-album, Void, contained musical gems like “BABY”, “I.L.Y”, and “Candy (so good)”. “Sorry”, which propelled them into fame, is also included in the album. The song is dubbed as one of the best Korean pop songs of 2017 by Billboard magazine.
Their slow and steady rise to fame is commendable. The group might not have skyrocketed through the charts, but every song they release can be categorized as a musical masterpiece. The band produces perfectly balanced music coupled with emotional and relatable messages that makes fans connect with them even more deeply.
Kim Woo Sung, Park Do Joon, Lee Ha Joon, and Lee Jae Hyeong are gaining popularity in various countries. Their usage of the English language broadens their relationship with overseas supporters. This is not the last you’ve heard of The Rose and they surely will come back with another musical treasure.
