I’ve been listening to Day6 lately and I can’t stop loving this band. They’re coming to Indonesia for a fanmeeting and a mini concert, but the ticket price is beyond my capability, so instead of crying and wondering why oh why I don’t have enough spare money to buy ticket for concert of my favorite artist, I decided to write this post.
There are many reasons to love Day6, but to be “poetic,” I decided to write only 6 reasons to love Day6.
Oh, for you who – probably – doesn’t familiar with Day6, they are a band, consist of five members and working under JYP Entertainment.
First Reason – Their Songs
Honestly, I don’t even know who the hell Day6 is until about three months ago. Yes, fellas, I fall in love with this band in only three months. The story is, my YouTube playlist accidentally played one of Day6’s songs – You Were Beautiful. It’s impossible to hate that song. If You Were Beautiful is a person, he will look like Jo In Sung, the one you can’t resist to look at. The one who is super handsome and charming, it makes you want to dig more about him.
After listening to You Were Beautiful, I’m starting to listen to more of Day6’s songs. And the result is: I like all of their songs. FYI, I literally only listened to the song, without watching the MV or searching about Day6 in Google. So, no people, I don’t like Day6 because of Wonpil’s dazzling eyes or Sungjin’s charm or Young K’s perfect look, I like Day6 in the first place because of their songs are simply amazing. That’s it.
Seriously guys, their songs are amazing. The lyrics are great. The music is incredible. And their voices are so diverse yet so pleasing to listen to. It’s hard to pick any favorite song from this band because their songs are that good. However, if I have to recommend one or two songs to attract people into liking Day6, I would recommend You Were Beautiful and Letting Go. Go listen to it and get mad at yourself, saying, “Where did I go these past years, why did I do to just found them now?” like what I did three months ago.
Second Reason – Their Voices
An ordinary band usually will have one main vocalist and one or two backing vocal who also plays guitar or other instruments within the band. But not with Day6 pal. They have five members. And all of them are singing – well except for Dowoon (the drummer), he sings, but the portion is not as many as the others.
They have four main vocalists, which consist of Sungjin (the guitarist), Jae (the other guitarist), Young K (the bassist), and Wonpil (the keyboardist). So, what’s the special thing about that, you may ask. The special thing about it is all of them have different tone and voices. I personally love Sungjin’s manly voice. I’m not lying, my heart skips a beat every time I heard his part. But many people love Wonpil’s voice because it is so unique and different. Jae’s voice is so tender and matches perfectly with him. Young K, on the other hand, is a double trouble; he can sing beautifully and rap awesomely.
Even though the tones of their voices are different, it will turn into something ah-mazing when they’re harmonizing. Don’t believe me?
Go listens to intro of Letting Go or the middle part of Dance Dance.
Third Reason – Their Best PR Staff, Jae
As an international fan who can’t read hangul or speak hangul, I often get frustrated if someone I admire is saying something in hangul in his/her social media. It’s my fault, honestly, to be too lazy to learn hangul. Thankfully, Day6 has Jae, their best Public Relations staff; in charge of maintaining Day6’s relationship with their international fans through weird Q&A session in twitter.
Even though what he posted sometimes too bizarre to be understood by my brain, Jae’s tweets in English really helps international fans – like me – to, at least, know what Day6’s current activities are.
Fourth Reason – Their Hongkira’s Session
Correct me if I wrong, but from what I heard, Day6 is one of regular guests in Lee Hong Ki’s Kiss the Radio program (Lee Hong Ki of FT Island’s radio program). I’ve watched three of their sessions in the Hongkira. And it’s hilarious. All of them are entertaining.
And, as a bonus, I got to see their wonderful covers of another artist’s songs or their own songs in acoustic version.
Fifth Reason – Their Fanservice
Another reason to love Day6 is their great fanservice. I’ve never experienced it myself since I never watched their live performance (cray-cray), but from several videos of their showcases I watched in YouTube, I can see that they’re really respecting and loving their fans. They even made a video to My Day (their fandom name) to thank them. Sweet, isn’t it?
Oh, and I heard that Day6 prefers to perform in small concert or mini showcase instead of having a large-scale concert because they want to connect more to their fans. In Korea, their showcase is more private and grassroots. I have nothing but love and respect for this.
Sixth Reason – Their Visuals
Who will resist a handsome face, right? As a bonus to their remarkable songs, beautiful and manly voices, quirky member, entertaining personalities, and grand fanservice, they also have stunning visuals. To this end, Day6 is pleasing to ears and eyes.
That is it from me. Hopefully this post will help you love Day6 as I do. I’m still praying that an angel-like human will give me Day6’s concert ticket for free or half price or there will be a quiz or something to win a free ticket or I will be super tired after karaoke-ing Day6’s songs all night long and go to sleep throughout 26th of August (the day of Day6’s mini concert and fanmeeting).
