Boys Meet U is the eighth Japanese single by South Korean boy group SHINee, released on August 21, 2013. The single debuted at #2 on the Oricon Charts and has sold approximately 124,232 copies.

Why release an album called ‘Boys Meet U’ without a title track and then release this two months later? I don’t get it. Anywayz. Boys Meet U was a good move since this is just THE summer single of 2013. It’s infectuous, beachy (is that a word?) and flirty, bound to stay in your head all way long, if not all week long. I can listen to this multiple times in a row, why wasn’t this featured on their album?!

Dream Girl [Japanese ver.] slays, doesn’t matter if it’s in Korean or Japanese, it just slays everything. Aggressive, energetic, funky and playful, the perfect formula for the perfect SHINee song. This was one of the strongest songs on the ‘Misconceptions of You’ album and it’s very nice to see it returning in this form. Mixing modern music with some oldschool melodies, I find this very enjoyable to say the least.

Sunny Day Hero is the second original Japanese song on the single and the second B-side too, what a treat! It totally fits the concept of the single with its summer single ambience, uptempo and very catchy, yet very controlled too. It’s the perfect balance on the single while it’s still bound to capture a lot of attention for sure. A little bit of oldschool guitars mixed in there as well, this just can’t go wrong anymore. Love it, I would looove to see this on an album in the future.

  1. Anyone else think “Boys Meet U” is kind of…One Direction-ish? I have to tell you, though, you appreciate this song a lot more once you don’t hear it for awhile. It’s grown on me 🙂 Happy about that 😀
