Dong Gam (Sympathy) 4

Well, they have just released the 4th Dong Gam or Sympathy series. As with all previous series, they have asked some of the most popular or 'in' artistes modeling for the album cover. Some of the artistes who modeled for this music series were Jang Dong Gun, Bae Yong Joon, Kim Rae Won and Won Bin.

Dong Gam is a compilation of the the most popular songs covering a certain period.

Eg- Dong Gam 1 covered songs from 1970 to 2001, Dong Gam 2 covered songs from 1980 to 2002 and so on.

The packaging has become much nicer in this latest album. Though I'm not sure if the content is better. In the previous series, there are about 6 cds, which means about 90 songs. However, in this latest album, there are 4 dvds of MVs and only 2 cds of songs. Though it is nice to watch the MVs, it means there are only a total of 34 songs. A lot less songs to listen to. Perhaps they're running out of songs? And oh, the songs on the dvds do not necessaily match those on the cds. Strange though, I could not find the time period that the songs cover in this album.

The artistes this time round are Yoo Ji Tae, Eric, Lee Dong Gun, Ji Jin Hee and So Ji Sub. The theme is the Four Seasons with Eric (Spring), Ji Jin Hee (Summer), Lee Dong Gun (Autumn), Yoo Ji Tae (Winter). So Ji Sub is on one of the cd cover.

Wonder how come there doesn't seemed to be any "Making of" for Dong Gam 4.... Or am I wrong and there's a video lurking somewhere..Anybody knows?

By the way, another blogger, Yokee was also talking about this album... here
