Kim Haon, winner of School Rapper 2, released a teaser MV for Season 3! Someone translated some bit in the comments section. It wrote, “To all the self titled geniuses, sometimes you need to show them what you got. If you don’t show it, everything will go to waste, you’ll regret it someday.” I hope MNet will add in English subtitles soon.
Lee Byoungjae aka Vinxen released 3 music videos recently under Romantic Factory. Sinking Down With You was his audition track for School Rapper 2. How Do You Feel (그대들은 어떤 기분이신가요) was his song for the ranking stage. Dark Adaptation (암순응) is a collaboration featuring Ovan and Haon. All I can say is that he brings the angst and the feels every time. His rap is raw and heavily stylized. His signature is to mumble his rap all throughout. While I’m not a fan of this style, I think that he is a true poet. I am drawn to his honesty. Behind all the darkness around him, I feel that he is very innocent and pure.
On the other hand, Oh Dam Ryul aka Chin Chilla signed with Million Market, while Kim Haon signed with his mentors’ home label, H1gher Music.
