Penyanyi idola “Penulis lagu”  meningkat.

JYJ Jaejoong, Yuchun dan Junsu, Bigbang G-Dragon, V.I, SOL, T.O.P dan D-Lite adalah contohnya. Bukan hanya mereka, setiap anggota CNBLUE dan FTISLAND, 2PM Junho dan Minjun dan penyanyi solo IU, Juniel dan Crazyno juga, album-album mereka memuat lagu karangan mereka sendiri atau liriknya mereka tulis sendiri.

Anggota-anggota JYJ telah bertransformasi menjadi penyanyi penulis lagu setelah Junsu merilis lagu komposisi&tulisannya sendiri “Fallen Leaves” di akhir 2010. Mempersiapkan ruangan rekaman musik tahun lalu, mereka ikut mem- produksi, tidak hanya menulis lagu.BigBang telah melakukan kegiatan dengan lagu komposisinya sendiri sebagai satu kelompok, solo atau unit.

FTISLAND juga memasukkan lagu komposisinya “Top Secret” sebagai lagu utama dalam album Jepang terakhir mereka. Seluruh anggota FTISLAND ambil bagian dalam penulisan 7 lagu untuk full-album Korea ke-4 nya.

CNBLUE jung Yonghwa menulis lagu untuk juniornya Juniel dan AOA dari agensi yang sama, FNC Entertainment. Seluruh anggotanya sudah pernah menulis lagu. CNBLUE telah melakukan kebanyakan aktivias dengan lagu komposisinya sendiri sejak major debut Jepang dengan lagu “In My Head.” Mini album solo kedua dari Hyuna juga memuat lagu “Very Hot”, dimana Ia ikut ambil bagian dalam penulisan.

Dan lagi, Minjun debut sebagai komposer Jun.K. Juniel debut pada bulan Juni dengan mini-albumnya yang terdiri atas 5 lagu, dan 3 lagu “Ready Go!”, Everlasting Sunset” dan “Mask” adalah komposisinya sendiri. Crazyno debut dengan lagu utama “Musiche,” yang merupakan komposisinya. Ini adalah hal yang luar biasa bagi idola untuk debut dengan lagu mereka sendiri.

Hingga sekarang, banyak idola yang meminta lagu pada penulis lagu dan beraktivitas dengan lagu tersebut. Dengan begitu, mereka diakui dengan keahlian menyanyinya. Tetapi, di lain pihak, mereka terlihat seperti boneka yang dibuat oleh perusahaan hiburan, atau terlihat seperti penghibur daripada penyanyi, dan mereka mungkin tidak dapat mengumpulkan kepercayaan.

Komentator musik pop, Kang Daekyu mengatakan bahwa “Peningkatan penyanyi idola yang menulis lagu adalah bukti perkembangan mereka dalam musik” dan “Mereka akan menghilang suatu saat nanti jika mereka tetap menjadi idola. Perkembangan mereka dalam bermusik akan meningkatkan kepercayaan penggemar akan kualitas musik mereka.”

Kelebihan lagu karangan sendiri adalah lagu tersebut akan sesuai dengan penyanyinya. Dan juga, kemampuan menulis lagu memberikan pendapatan lebih bagi penyanyi. Contohnya FTISLAND, mereka baru saja menerima penghitungan pendapatannya, dan ditemukan bahwa pendapatan yang berhubungan dengan hakcipta mencapai 40% dari total.

FNC Entertainment CEO,Jo Sungwan menjelaskan bahwa “Musik menjadi dasar bagi penyanyi untuk hisup ketika mereka tua.” dan “Untuk mempelajari menulis lagu adalah investasi bagi masa depan mereka.”

“Songwriter” idols increased.

JYJ’s Jaejoong, Yuchun and Junsu, BigBang’s G-Dragon, V.I, SOL, T.O.P and D-Lite are typical examples. Not only them, each member of CNBLUE and FTISLAND, 2PM’s Junho and Minjun, and solo-singer IU, Juniel and Crazyno too, their albums include their own songs composed or of the lyrics written by themselves.

JYJ members already transformed to singer-songwriters as Junsu released their own composed&written song “Fallen Leaves” in the end of 2010. Preparing music recording room last year, they are acquiring record producing skill, not just songwriting. BigBang has had activities with their own composed songs as its group, solo or unit.

FTISLAND also included their own composition “Top Secret” as title song of their recent Japanese album. All of FTISLAND members took part in songwriting of 7 songs of their 4th Korean full-album.

CNBLUE’s Jung Yonghwa wrote songs for his junior singers Juniel and AOA belonging to the same company, FNC Entertainment. All of the members have already acquired songwriting skill. CNBLUE has had activities mainly with the own composition since Japan major debut song “In My Head.” Hyuna’s recent second solo mini-album also included “Very Hot”, whose songwriting she took part in.

Also, Minjun debuted as a composer Jun.K. Juniel debuted in June with her mini-album consisting of 5 songs, and 3 songs “Ready Go!”, “Everlasting Sunset” and “Mask” in the album were her own composition. Crazyno debuted with a title song “Musiche,” which is his own composition. It’s remarkable for idol singers to debut with their own compositions.

Until now, it was often the case that idol singers asked songwriters for songs and had activities with them. By doing that, they were recognized for their singing and performance skills. In the other hand, they was seen as “puppet” made by entertainment companies, or seen as entertainer rather than singers, and they might not gather trusts.

Popular music commentator Kang Daekyu told that “It is a proof of their development in music that idol singers who do songwriting increased” and “They have to disappear some day if they stay as idols. Their development in music will rise fans’ trust on the quality of their music.”

Own composition has an advantage that it suits the singer well. Also, songwriting skill gives idol singers quite a little income. In case of FTISLAND, they have just received their income calculation, and it was found that income related to copyright fee were reaching to 40% of the total.

FNC Entertainment CEO Jo Sungwan explained that “Music becomes a base for singers to live when they get old.” and “To learn songwriting is an investment in their own futures.”
