I’m Da One – Jo Kwon


I absolutely fell in love with this song when I first heard it. It was catchy, it was upbeat and technically, it deserve more than one award. There was nothing wrong with the song (well, exaggeration here, I will explain later). Though it is quite different for him to have an upbeat, happy, light hearted yet meaningful song since 2AM normally does Ballads, or actual sad dance songs, I was quite surprised that he pulled the song off quite well. It is a really good song to listen to. I was not that confident in his album. Beside this song, I really liked Heaven, but the rest, I felt it was kind of bland and not as outgoing as Jo Kwon is portrayed on TV shows.

The only thing I must say about this song, is that it has the worse pronunciation mistake, or what I think it is, ever. When Jo Kwon goes Girls, Girls, Girls and Boys, Boys, Boys, it sounded like a whole different language. It sounded much different than Korean, but did not match with another language. So yeah, that bothered me, but beside that, it was a good song.

Music Video

This music video on the other hand was good, but quite cliché. I mean, like from the start you could tell that the Jo Kwon’s assistant or “manager” wants to overthrow Jo Kwon, with the help of the storybook, since most fairy-tales would be told the same way. Also when the poster of the “manager” is put up, and with the rain. darkness and snow, you knew automatically that the newer poster would fall and Jo Kwon’s face would appear.

However, despite the cliché start and middle, I was quite surprised with the ending. The “manager” either grew bored of having power or kind of just went blanked, while in power and just handed the crown over to Jo Kwon. Though I was like “eh”, I was surprised, since, and I must admit, the music video was slowly building up to its climax, and then it just went straight down, in the worst story form ever.

Anyway, I love the fact that Ga-In was in the video. It was not that hard to find her was it?

Live Performance

I found the dance kind of boring, and not appealing. The music was upbeat, the music video was great, but then the dance just sucked. I agree with 2AM when they said they looked awkward when dancing n stage, Jo Kwon was definitely awkward on stage without the others.

And The Rating?

7.5/10. Sorry, but the music video, song and performance’s flaws were kind of big. Sorry.

Have Fun Watching. 😀 Troy
