Time passes like water flows, I’m building a dam called memories
Time and Fallen Leaves
Who is AKMU?
known as Akdong Musician is the duet of two siblings, Lee Chan Hyuk and Lee Su
Hyun. They began their debut in April 2014 under YG Entertainment. They created
a superb chemistry, Lee Chan Hyuk with his sweet voice while Lee Su Hyun with her
soothing voice. I just can’t help not falling in love with them.
Lee Chan Hyuk
He is a
South Korean singer, songwriter, producer and rapper. He is Lee Su Hyun (older)
brother who was born in September 12, 1996. He is the main producer of all
AKMU’s songs and he can produce a song with just 10 minutes. He has a low voice
that will melt everyone hearts. I appreciated his hard work because, mostly the
lyrics he made was light and straightforward.
Lee Su Hyun
She is the
main vocal from Akdong Musician and she has a beautiful voice that I guarantee,
every girl would like to have her voice. Su Hyun was born in May 4, 1999, aside
of being singer, she is also a Radio DJ. The first time I hear her voice was
when she sang I’m Different song with
Lee Hi. Both of them are a real singer I swear. Aside from AKMU, Su Hyun also
had a duet with Lee Hi which known as HI SUHYUN duo. I recommend you to listen
to I’m Different, because the song

#4. Sailing Album
Sailing is the third and latest album from
AKMU which released on September 25, 2019 with lead single How Can I Love the Heartbreak, You’re the One I Love. The songs
mostly written by Lee Chan Hyuk but there are 2 songs that were written by Lee
Su Hyun which her solo. This album was done with a unique way. Chan Hyuk who engaged
as one of the Korean Marine military for 2 years was spending his day in the
middle of ocean that made him brought this album as Sailing. By the time he made these songs, he doesn’t have any
musical instrument so; he sent his song demo through voice call with his
sister. All of their hard work was paid with the released of this album. The
song mostly has a mellow melody but some has a happy one. According to my
sense, mostly the songs made by AKMU were based on the reality people facing
and they made the story through their songs.

My Favorite Songs
200% is a song that represents someone
who is in loves and they sure it’s 200%.
The MV is pretty simple, and intelligible, shows how Su Hyun (as the female
model) was in love with Nam Jo Hyuk (as the man model) that ends with a twist, because
Nam Jo Hyuk had a crush with other girl.
Give Love is like the next episode of 200% song. Based on my vision, Give Love is a song that asks someone to
give love to them. Continuing from 200%
MV, on Give Love MV’s Su Hyun was
befriend with the man’s crush and played a role as a third wheel on the
This song is
just wow! For some part of the song, you will hear the piano, the guitar and
the cello. Another soothing song is found! The lyrics look like a poem!
Will Last Forever is another ballad song from AKMU that
will reminds you with the childhood memories. The simple instrument and
melodious voice mingled in one beautiful song. The high and low melody that they
made, the interlude, the timbre, everything was cool!
How Can I
Love the Heartbreak, You’re the One I Love
Everything is in blue color. Blue which also represent something sad. I love this MV so much that I keep repeating the MV for several times. The blue ocean that describes how deep her love is, the painter, the rain and the moves that they made was stunning. This song definitely the masterpiece!
