EXO's Angel was Composed in 40 minutes

Posted: 21 Nov 2012 04:54 AM PST

EXO's Angel was Composed in 40 minutes.

Who is Shin-Hyuk (Angel's composer): Composer, Producer 
Birthday : June 5th, 1985
Debut : Debuted as a singer-songwriter through a song called "Robot" 

Hit songs: Shin-Hyuk's Robot / Justin Bieber - One Less Lonely Girl / Tynishakeli - Right Here / Teentop - Supa Luv, Supa Luv(A-Rex Remix) / EXO-K - Into Your World (Angel) / EXO-M - Angel / Fiestar - We Don't Stop 

Shin-Hyuk revealed "SMEntertainment & I first worked on this song. Although this song had many issues at first,I was working with EXO so it became a fun time. 'Angel' is one of my favourite Medium tempo/Pop Ballad song. I remember it was made in a studio in LA, where I was playing around with the piano until this song suddenly came up. I also remember it took around 40 minutes to get the basis of the song, thus making it an enjoyable memory. This song's melody may be simple and easy to hear, but in truth this song contained an unfamiliar melody line and a confusing rhythm. Because of that, we had to go through some directing to hear a clearer melody, and therefore the recording of the song was not easy. I'm thankful for the EXO members who worked hard until the end, and composer Yun-Kyoung Cho who fitted this song with the beautiful lyrics."

Posted: 21 Nov 2012 04:12 AM PST

Top Producer 'Shinsadong Tiger' revealed the back story behind "Roly Poly" on the November 20th episode of 'Strong Heart'.

He explained, "After I got the initial request for making the song, I traveled to Japan. However, I spent too much time there and I ran into a problem with the production schedule. When I came back to Korea, T-ara's CEO said to me, 'This is very difficult for us if you're this late'. Although I didn't even start anything for the song, I told him that I was finished."

In the end, Shinsadong Tiger had to drive straight to T-ara's label without any concrete material. He revealed, "I went straight there from the Gimpo Airport. I was sitting in the middle of the meeting room with everyone around, and started to say, 'The title of the song is…' but I hadn't written anything down yet. Thinking quickly, I knew that the CEO really enjoys snacks and the name of the snack on the table in the meeting room was called 'Roly Poly'."

On the famous "Roly Poly" dance, he added, "Much like Boom, I often MC'ed various events. I showed them a dance that I used to dance on the spot during events, and they really liked it. That's how the "Roly Poly" dance was born."
