BTOB-BLUE and Brown Eyed Soul brought their A game to JTBC’s “Sugar Man 2.”
“Sugar Man 2” is a program that reintroduces classic hits and singers from the past through remakes and performances of these tracks by currently active singers.
On the April 15 episode, two members of Brown Eyed Soul were joined by BTOB-BLUE, a subunit formed by the group’s vocal line.
MC Yoo Jae Suk introduced the first “Sugar Man”as the “standard for R&B vocals.” Yoon Mi Rae added to the mystery when she appeared as an informant and said, “She is the top queen of our country’s R&B.” The identity of this “Sugar Man” turned out to be Ann One!
Ann One (also known as just Ann) received lots of love for her title track “Lonely Love,” which was released in 2004. When Yoo Jae Suk asked her about what she’s been up to, she replied, “I still work on music and am also a professor at an applied music school in America.”
Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae sat in the audience and happily greeted Ann One. Yoon Mi Rae said, “She’s a legend to me.”
MC Yoo Hee Yeol then introduced his “Sugar Man” as someone who released a popular ballad in 2002. He added that this song achieved No. 1 for four consecutive weeks on music programs and sounded confident that many people would recognize this song.
When asked about the song “Cold,” Lee Ki Chan said, “It’s a song that I composed and wrote the lyrics for.” Yoo Jae Suk asked the greatest amount he received in royalties for the song and the singer answered, “One car[‘s worth].” He also sang his other popular hits “Another Love Passes Again,” “Beauty,” and “Viva My Love” (literal titles).
Brown Eyed Soul and BTOB-BLUE performed their renditions of Ann One’s “Lonely Love” and Lee Ki Chan’s “Cold” respectively. In the end, Brown Eyed Soul received more votes from the audience and won.
