Classical Music Can Be Dangerous, Too...


From Sohn-san's blog Nov.21:

Classical Music Can Be Dangerous too…

Late last night, we received the color proof of the box and booklet for “BYJ Classics”. “It’s fabulous!!!!!!!!!” About seven of us gathered around the samples and talked in excitement for more than an hour – I talked so much that I was exhausted. Some said that it would surely be a no.1 hit in the classical music chart, others said it would be the best IMX product ever… the DVD we made of the So Ji Sub event was a really stylish product too, but this one is so beautiful that I never tire of looking at it. (Of course the credit goes to the model, photographer, and the designer - I have nothing to do with it.)

As for the 2 CDs, I was able to received the actual sound source which will be used for the product (the content of these are incredible as well) so I hastily played it in my car on my way home. The highway I get on for my commute is congested even late at night, so I turned up the volume. Listening to it, I got goose bumps, and my sight blurred as if I were hit by something. Then, the sudden crash of the cymbal! Look out! I was about to crash myself…

According to the Product Liability Law, we are obligated to alert the consumer on any conceivable damages that may be inflicted by the use of the product. For a split second, I debated whether to note on the package “do not turn up the volume while driving as it may cause an accident.” PLEASE refrain from experimenting with the product in attempt to confirm my point. I’ve heard many stories that the OST of “Winter Sonata” almost lead to dangerous situations caused by the tears that were shed by the listeners, but this one is a different story.

I've got to tell you ... this album is truly dangerous.

Hi Liezle,

I think you can look forward to the CD sets - IMX just announced the contents of the music, and I can assure you that it was a great selection performed by the very best artists♪

What a treat to be able to listen to these gems while looking at wuri Yong Joon^^
