Comment: Mighty Mouth releases a new single titled, “Love Is.” The group is known for collaborating with singers and actors alike, always surprising music listeners with catchy and easy-going music. The duo’s new song, “Love Is” features Korea’s top actresses, Kim Hee Sun who has actually taken a hiatus for a bit. This will be her first work since the break. The actress has some singing experience from her 2005 drama series, “Sad Sonata” in which she sang Natalie Cole’s “Love.” “Love Is” is a song with a simple, yet smooth melody line that flows well with the piano arrangements and medium-tempo hip-hop beats. This love song is expected to receive much love and attention.  This week it is our highest debut at No. 18.
