Exclusive Review: VERIVERY 2nd Mini Album “VERI-ABLE” Media Showcase
On April 24, 2019, VIXX’s little brother group, VERIVERY that debuted early this year (Jan. 2019) made a rather quick comeback with the 2nd mini album, ‘VERI-ABLE’.
The group being part of Jellyfish entertainment is a first boyband project that was produced in 7 years since VIXX and they came back to show their fans, how they have matured as an idol. The following is exciting moments that Kpopmap witnessed from VERIVERY’s showcase.
This mini album consists of 5 songs including the title, ‘From Now’, ‘Love Line’, 나 집에 가지 않을래(I’m not going home-unofficial)’, ‘Get Ready’ and ‘밝혀줘(Tell me-unofficial)’. As they were well known for being the ‘Creative Idol’, the whole group members took part in creating this album. VERIVERY told us how they have worked so hard in order to put different sound and colors for each song.
Their title, ‘From Now’ is composed based on a new jack swing genre with powerful beats and well-balanced synthesizers, generating an exciting sound to the listeners. You might find yourself grooving to the beats even before you notice it.
During the media showcase, VERIVERY prepared another song for the press called, ‘밝혀줘(Tell me-unofficial)’ which is a tropical house styled dance music The song starts with a marimba intro, making the listeners think that this might be just a cute song and then BAM! a fierce beat drops, giving you that energetic and groovy vibe (This was my favorite).
During the interview, GyeHyeon said, “While we were preparing for this album, we tried not to lose our unique color”.
If you listen to their album, you’d be surprised how diverse and different each song is from one another and yet, it certainly has “VERIVERY” in them. It was refreshing and fun to listen to.
VERIVERY is well known for its ‘KalGunMu’ (Perfectly synched choreography). They have proven that not only with their own songs but with several K-Pop covers including BTS, TaeMin , EXO and of course VIXX.

The leader, DongHeon, had also shared his perfectly covered BTS JiMin’s ‘Lie’ choreography via VERIVERY’s official Twitter in the past.
So this might sound quite obvious, but they were REALLY REALLY good!
They certainly have made astonishing progress as a performer for the past 4 months of preparation. They were delicate, powerful, smooth and above all, they danced as one. It made a great impact on their stage and I can assure you I wasn’t the only person that was impressed. You just have to see them.
As they wrap up the showcase, there was a question about what they look forward to this album, YeonHo mentioned that “we want to be able to communicate more with our fans”. And YongSeung added, “We are aiming for Shinin Sang(New Artist of the Year) but for this album, we want to give an impression to the audience that like our group name, VERIVERY, we want to be seen as a group that shows “Various” charms through our music”.
