2AM’s Changmin and 8eight’s Lee Hyun, who both participated in the Homme project has reached number one as soon as their anticipated track “I Was Able to Eat Well” was released.
The song, released on the 28th is a hybrid rock genre that reached number one on various music charts, most noticeably on the Cy World Music Chart. When it was first announced that these two artists would collaborate, many anticipated a slow ballad. However, it became an unexpected reversal as the song is an upbeat song that revealed a different color from the two.
Nonetheless, it is an awesome song! Homme producer Bang Shi Hyuk (Hitman bang) said, “Homme project was started as my personal wish to bring singers with great voices and combine them to reveal something new. I was able to do so with Changmin and Lee Hyun, who are at their peak.”

8Eight makes their comeback with the release of their music video for “이별 이온다 (Farewell Is Coming).”
2PM’s Nichkhun stars in the music video as the male lead and shows off his acting abilities.
The music video has a theme of white to represent a sense of purity and heavenliness. With the broken glasses and picture frame, viewers wonder if Nichkhun is just a ghostly presence coming to visit a lover or if he is being ignored by the lover in the music video. To add to the confusion, the music video ends with Nichkhun growing wings from behind.
However you chose to interpret the music video make sure to watch it below:

sofizta: I think the music video goes like Nichkhun is an angel who visited his lover. Maybe the girl tried to commit suicide cause she misses Nichkhun so much. But then again Nichkhun came back to earth to save the girl.
