With Kim Hyun Joong busy shooting the Korean adaptation of Hana Yori Dango and Park Jung Min starring in the musical Grease, boy band SS501 has to set group activities aside for a while. In the meantime, Kim Kyu Jong, Heo Yong Saeng, and Kim Hyung Jun have formed the special unit Triple-S to carry on the music, and they’re now releasing the special six-track mini album U R Man. Triple-S, which is also the name of SS501’s fan club, represents a new challenge for the three members as they push a more mature sound and look, and even unveil their songwriting skills.
Produced by the same team that created SS501 hits like 4 Chance, the album’s title track U R Man is just about a guaranteed hit with its catchy mid-tempo melody and urban house sound. Triple-S also collaborated with American music production company Pisces Music to add new sparks to their album. Their opening urban hip-hop track WANT IT, produced by a team that includes Shaine Freeman and Andrew Lane who has worked with artists like TLC, Backstreet Boys, Jay-Z, and 50 Cent, floats on hard beats and an East Coast Groove, creating a strong dance number that differs from the group’s previous hits but still retains that SS501 charm.
