엄정화 10th Album [The Cloud Dream of the Nine]

- '모두의 디바' 엄정화, 8년 만의 컴백...꿈의 무대 시작된다
- '구운몽' 테마...더블 타이틀곡 일렉트로닉 디스코 vs 딥 하우스
- 시대 속에서 진화하는 가수 엄정화, 여전히 현재 진행형

모두가 기다려온 가수 엄정화가 컴백한다. 새 앨범으로 무대에 서는 것은 8년 만이다.
시대를 앞서가는 음악과 비주얼로 최고의 자리를 지켜온 엄정화는 이번에 미스틱엔터테인먼트와 손잡고 엄정화만이 할 수 있는 콘셉트와 음악, 퍼포먼스로 '유일무이한 아티스트'임을 보여주고자 한다.
엄정화의 새 앨범 테마는 꿈의 문학 '구운몽(九雲夢)'이다. 이번 앨범의 총괄 프로듀싱을 맡은 조영철 프로듀서는 고고하면서도 신비감을 지닌 엄정화의 캐릭터가 이 소설의 제목 '구운몽'과 잘 어울린다고 생각했다. 이번 앨범에 참여한 작곡가, 작사가들은 엄정화를 꿈과 환상의 관점에서 바라보고 각기 다른 스타일의 9곡의 노래를 만들었다.
이 중 더블 타이틀곡 'Dreamer', 'Watch Me Move'를 비롯해 'Oh Yeah'와 '버들숲' 등 4곡이 먼저 공개된다.
첫 번째 타이틀곡 'Dreamer'는 윤상의 프로듀싱팀 '원피스'가 작곡하고 김이나가 작사한 노래로, 슬프면서도 화려한 분위기가 느껴지는 일렉트로닉 기반의 디스코 장르다. 또 다른 타이틀곡인 'Watch Me move'는 엑소, 샤이니 등의 노래를 만든 작곡가 신혁이 작업한 딥 하우스 장르의 업템포 댄스곡으로, 귀에 꽂히는 비트와 후렴구가 인상적이다.
8년 만에 컴백하는 엄정화의 정규 앨범을 위해 실력과 감각을 보유한 내로라하는 많은 사람들이 함께 했다. 가인, 아이유 등 여성 아티스트의 앨범 기획에 탁월한 역량을 보인 조영철 프로듀서가 총괄 프로듀싱을 맡았고, 탄탄한 스토리 구성과 영상미 연출로 유명한 황수아 뮤직비디오 감독이 비주얼 디렉터를 맡아 재킷 이미지, 뮤직비디오 등 앨범 전반적인 비주얼 콘텐츠들을 작업했다. 시선을 압도하는 강렬한 퍼포먼스는 비욘세의 안무가로 유명한 존테가 더블 타이틀곡 모두 구성했다.
또한 윤상, 신혁, 이민수, 켄지, G.고릴라, 프라이머리, 포스티노, 김이나 등 이 분야에서 가장 활발하게 활동 중인 작곡가, 작사가들이 엄정화를 위한 노래를 만들었다. 피처링에는 이효리, 정려원, 샤이니 종현이 참여했다. 언젠가는 함께 작업하고 싶은 모두의 '뮤즈' 엄정화이기에 가능한 참여진들이다.

1993년 가수 데뷔한 엄정화. 그리고 2016년의 엄정화. 그 차이가 어색하게 느껴지지 않는 것은 매번 동시대 음악을 통해 트렌디함과 세련됨을 잃지 않기 때문이다. 이번 앨범 역시 여전히 현재 진행형인 가수 엄정화를 느낄 수 있다.

Uhm Jung Hwa is back and in full form Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Between the two art house music videos with passionate dancing and the four awesome tracks on this album, Uhm Jung Hwa clearly hasn't lost a single ounce of flair since her last mini album dropped. The title track "Dreamer" is melancholy and vogue, and the other title track "Watch Me Move" is a grungy progressive house track. "Oh Yeah" is a funky and laid back duet made in heaven featuring Jonghyun of SHINee, and the album finishes with "버들숲" which is a sultry and extremely elegant dance track.

The album packaging, similar to the packaging for D.I.S.C.O., places a regular jewel case inside of a sleeve (cardboard instead of plastic this time). All the pictures included perfectly suit the sultry sexiness of the album.

The album was originally meant to be a full album, which water later decided to be two separate EP's. It's too bad, because a full album of this music would have been an absolutely legendary release. Still, this mini-album is incredible and I cannot wait for part two to come, if it's anything like part 1!

D.I.S.C.O. course for the Eight and Nine Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Been off radar some time (and with GPS that takes a bit of doin) due to having no job and proper Internet. Finally got a smart phone with 4G Internet so 2017 should be more up and running. Looking better. As, too, this year for Jung Hwa in music mode with new album ‘The Cloud Dream of the Nine’ for K-pop 90s nostalgia (along with 2017 albums of SES and Hyori Lee)...even more better (a black bean dish cooked up by SNSD could make it perfect). I came across JungHwa’s new electro dance song ‘Watch Me Move’ on MC Eddy’s Arirang show ‘Pops in Seoul’ via Satellite TV (careful with a Pops in Seoul Special, guys..that acronym) and so didn’t hesitate to get this album - thanks to Eddy and his crew there.

A mini pack of CD/slip case and booklet its a modest 90s packaging. Of the four songs I guess having a Human League synth bent, ‘Watch Me Move’ draws to me the most.

TCDOTN though has an esoterically symbolic suggestion of spheres in the title (as like a Mirror Ball where if Alice in Blunderland were a lad of nine, s/he could have played soccer with One and the four winds) and above title coincides with me recently reading the Nag Hammadi scriptures (a collective of lost Egyptian Gnostic sacred writings found in a jar by the river Nile at Nag Hammadi in 1945) concerning origins of The Pleroma (fullness) spirit/mind as emanative celestial light Aeons/Spheres (hierarchal light luminaries from The Great Invisible Silence...The One) including an Hermetic ascent dialogue ‘The Discourse on the Eighth and Ninth’ hence...couldn’t resist the DISCO ball bit! For any religious inclined (and I’m just a doubtful ignorant seeker), the Nag Hammadi mythos (Out of Egypt) collective is worth reading (not all hell and damnation, more about remembering who we truly are (unfearful remembering hearts) - ‘fallen sparks’ from Wisdom/Pistus Sophia wishing spontaneously to ‘loftily bring forth her partner by herself’ upsetting a jealous Lion head creator God/Son of chaos (the Dark Brother of Jesus Anointed?). Although what ‘Reality’ this Mid Platonic Pleroma is (shouldn’t we just settle for G-Dragon or a Marvel comic hero?) there’s many ‘Goddess’ pop stars (Aeons?) and celestial symbolic ritual pop and maybe mirror reflected here in Jung Hwa’s disco Queen of the Night, uniting light (Self remembrance of Spirit) and dark (Mere Body Perception)?

Fullness Cloud Dream Nine? Well, in 2017 (Monad) people need hope, knowledge, music and love and Jung Hwa is here! Hope/Love within.
