Bae Suzy Comeback: Everything You Need To Know
Giving more details on the comeback, the Management SOOP has informed us that the song ‘Satellite’ is going to give us a glimpse of Suzy as a vocalist in a way none of her previous musical projects have. Suzy has also participated in the songwriting process of the song. As for the subject of the song, “it is about the longing for a certain something that can’t be reached out for, the kind of yearning that always sticks around with no heart for changing.” And indeed, the photo teaser shared along with the news does exude the melancholic atmosphere of the song as described.
The song is reported going to be co-written and produced by none other than singer-songwriter and music producer Kang Hyun Min, who is the leader of the Korean pop group Loveholics who previously also was a member of a group called Weather Forecast. The genre of the song is going to be leaning towards the classic Britpop band style (think of the classic 90s songs by Oasis, Blur, Pulp). Suzy was reportedly working with Hyun Min on this song alongside her busy acting schedules. “Since this is her comeback as a vocalist after a long time, and since she has dedicated a lot of time to this project, we are expecting this news to gather a lot of curiosity and joy amongst fans”, says the agent from SOOP.
