1. 미인아 (BONAMANA)
Lyrics, Composed & Arranged by YOO, YOUNG JIN
The title song of the 4th album, ‘BONAMANA’ is a ‘SJ FUNKY (SUPER JUNIOR FUNKY)’ song, the style that Super Junior is going to pursue continuously, and it was composed by the hit-maker, Young-Jin Yoo.
‘SJ FUNKY’ songs have already been introduced to music fans through ‘SORRY, SORRY’ and Super Junior M’s ‘Super Girl’ and ‘BONAMANA’ is considered the best work in this genre as much as the composer devoted himself to the song.
The combination of the cheerful groove of Afro tom (a percussive instrument) suggesting the dynamic African rhythm and the house beat, and the powerful riff of the Jupiter synth (a synthesizer sound source) suggesting the aggressive motions of Korean mask dancers are quite impressive, and also the lyric perfectly fits the mood of the song by describing the sincerity of a man trying to win the heart of the girl he fell in love with in witty and humorous words.
