After Superstar K4, finally the indie group DickPunks is back and officially debuted with the release of their first mini album, Viva Primavera. The band is composed of Kim Tae Hyeon, Kim Hyunwoo, Park Garam and Kim Jae Heung. P.S. They used no electric guitar and I only realized that few weeks before the finals when Lee Seung Chul, judge of Superstar K, mentioned it.
If I’m not mistaken, the group, DickPunks was formed six years before they joined the program. Basically that’s 2006. They had a bitter past. But they did not give up. In 2012, they joined the most prestigious singing competition in Korea on it’s 4th season, Supertar K and the rest is history.
What I like about this group, they have unique style in music. Playing without guitar is just something different and Kim Hyun Woo’s talent in keyboarding is just amazing. I kept replaying their first performance in the show, Ulleungdo Twist and I’ve been playing that song for the past few months. The original arrangement of the song was slow and kinda trot (If that was the correct term) but they made it unique by making it rock.
They don’t just perform like a crazy man, they can also sing ballad. That shows they have a diverse talent in music.
And now in 2013, they made their official debut with the mini album, Viva Primavera.
