2009년 신인가수 '태군'
아이돌 댄스 열풍에 도전장을 낸다.
태군의 첫번째 미니앨범!!

최고의 스탭진들이 모여 만든 태군의 첫 번째 싱글 앨범의 타이틀곡 'CALL ME'는 크라운J의 'Fly boy', 'Too much'를 작곡한 사운드 오브 스트라이크의 곡으로, 중독성있는 멜로디와 가사 그리고 세련된 비트와 절도있는 춤이 잘 어우러진 일렉트로닉풍의 곡이다.

또한, 최근 백지영의 총맞은것처럼을 쓴 방시혁 사단의 곡 'one two step'는 최근 트랜드인 알앤비와 테크노적인 요소를 합쳐낸 곡으로 태군의 힘있는 보컬이 특징이다.

이밖에도 가수 H-유진의 피처링이 돋보이는 '난 그녈 알아'와 'Hands Up' 은 태군의 약간은 거친음색과 보컬링이 어우러져 높은 퀄리티를 보여준다.

한편, 타이틀곡 'CALL ME'의 뮤직비디오는 동방신기 영웅재중과 박신혜가 열연해 화제를 모았으며, 손담비 '미쳤어'의 안무를 만든 곽귀훈이 안무를 맡았다.

K-pop's Next Big Star
With Rain and SE7EN focusing on their overseas careers and other male singers unable to rise to the occasion (between the requisite military rounds), the last few years of K-pop have pretty much been dominated by boy bands, girl groups, and divas. Other than Seo Tai Ji and the boy band-turned-solo holdouts, there are virtually no male vocalists at the top of the K-pop charts. The Korean music industry is clearly in need of some new blood, and Tae Goon just might be the best hope for the next big male pop star.

Tae Goon first attracted buzz for his connection to TVXQ's Hero Jae Joong who starred in the music video of his catchy debut single Call Me, but the 23-year-old newcomer has a lot more going for him than just being Jae Joong's friend. With boyish looks, easygoing stage charisma, and solid singing and dancing skills, Tae Goon bears a definite resemblance to SE7EN, if only because there have been so few notable all-around solo male pop acts since SE7EN. As a former "Battle Shinhwa" contestant, Tae Goon may have walked a longer road, but he's certainly doing better than Battle now.

Tae Goon's self-titled first mini-album is almost too easy to like. The album's style is basically the urban mix of R&B, dance, and hip-hop typical of K-pop, but all the tracks are well produced and very well arranged. There are no down moments, and any of the album's five songs would make decent first plugs, though it's pretty clear why Call Me (Track 2) was chosen as the debut single.

Now that we all live in the post-Tell Me era of K-pop, repetitive refrains and dance-along routines are just about requirements for dance hits, and if there's some cuteness thrown in, all the better. Tae Goon has all of that down pat with his first song Call Me. Written and composed by Sound of Strike who also produced the album, Call Me is a dance pop number with a silky melody, strong beats, electronica arrangement, and an oh-so-catchy "Call me" chorus that's guaranteed to get stuck in your head after one listen.

The money is on the sing-along chorus again for One Two Step (Track 3), which begins unremarkably with an indistinct melody and generic lyrics, but gets a lift once the pounding beats come in. Tae Goon's voice is curiously inconsistent, sounding different through the song's various changeups. Smooth, uptempo R&B ballad My Girl (Track 4) provides a better showcase for Tae Goon's vocals. Singing in a distinctly lower pitch than the harmonizing vocals, Tae Goon stands out with a more mature and less commercial vocal performance. He has to work on controlling his voice on the ending notes, but overall, he handles the track's subtle stylistic and vocal variations well, and the vocal arrangement for the song itself is outstanding.

Featuring rap by H-EUGENE, chart-friendly hip-hop number "I Know My Girl" (Track 5) would basically be right at home in a Big Bang album with its slick tongue-rolling rhymes, bombastic beats, and catchy, hand-raising chorus. Hands Up (Track 6) closes the album on a high note with a jumping track that combines everything good that came before - addictive beats, grooving melody, electronic mixes, R&B vocals - and throws in some old-school hip-hop party number flair for good measure.

An excellent start! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I must say that I was interested in Taegoon at first simply because I am a DBSK fan and heard Jaejoong was going to be in the PV Call Me and that the two were childhood friends. However, that's not all there is to look at. Taegoon can really sing, his vocals are very strong.

If you're ready for a new artist that combines nice hiphop/pop electronic beats (like Big Bang or Epik High) and excellent smooth vocal skills (like LeeMinWoo, Se7en or OJ), then this is you're guy.

I also like that he has a unique dancing style, not the same old popping, etc... ^^

Check him out.
