After listening to this album I can understand why Wooyoung chose "Sexy Lady" for his promotions. I assumed wanted a song he could dance to and show off that strength with, and I'm sure he didn't want to make his solo debut as a ballad singer. 

This song as actually pretty good, and I liked listening to it. However, it was a completely different experience listening to the song than it was watching the music video.

Music Video

Wooyoung really could have done a better job with making his personality shine through. There were so many awkward moments, he just didn't seem 100% comfortable.


While watching the MV I kept thinking, "wow he looks awkward." Wooyoung seemed like he was well aware that all eyes are on him and that there are no longer five other men to hide his mistakes behind. The whole video seemed like he had that thought in the back of his mind, and it was preventing him from letting loose, and enjoying himself, and revealing a new side of himself. 


In the video Wooyoung had this habit of going back and forth between being sexy, and tough, and manly to being cutesy, and it was another thing that made this video awkward, and weird to watch.




The part where Wooyoung excelled the most was during the dance, he obviously knows what he's doing in that aspect. During the dance break he showed a bit of the swagger we see for him during 2PM promotions, and he actually reminded me of JYP a bit.

Wrap Up

Wooyoung's solo debut had a lot to live up to thanks to the success of his bandmates' solo activities. Wooyoung, to me, has never really been one of the stand out members, and when I heard he would go solo I was definitely skeptical. "Sexy Lady" was a rocky start for Wooyoung's solo career, and it doesn't make me look forward to any more future solo work from him. He didn't prove me wrong for being skeptical, and he didn't reinvent himself as something more than just a 2pm member. When I compare the quality of his solo album, to labelmate Jo Kwon's, who debuted around the same, I see such a different level of quality, and especially comfort. I can't give Wooyoung high marks for this promotion because he just did not stand out the way he should have.
