The only non-idol entry on this year's countdown is from Park Bum Soo and Lena Park, and it's their gorgeous duet "Person, Love". You all know that I love gorgeous ballads, and these two gorgeous voices are enough to send me through the roof. Stunning.
"Person, Love" is SO "A Whole New World"-y, with the very simple, but epic, instrumental laced with Park Bum Soo and Lena Park's smooth, yet full voices, which actually have character.
I won't say much, because I want to let the song do the talking, but really, THIS is how duets are done, people. It's a simple, quaint song, but what really makes it soar is not only their individual voices, but the chemistry they have when they sing together.
That is all.
