1. “You and I”
Throwback to Bommie during her rookie days. Innocent and sweet, she sung her heart out and hit every note as she performed her solo debut track “You and I.” While this single could be considered a K-pop oldie, the passion that Bom channels through this song transcends time and can still be felt to this day through her performances.
2. “Up” with Epik High
Whenever Park Bom lends her voice to a collaboration, the outcome is compelling. Although she was only responsible for the chorus of “Up,” it goes without saying that her part required powerful vocals to fit with the song’s vibes. Furthermore, Bom’s presence spices up any stage!
Fans were all anticipating Bom’s long-awaited comeback, and the patience was rewarding! This live rendition of “Spring” captures the passion and delicacy of the song as the singer flaunts her sweet voice with every line, leaving viewers feeling both serenaded and sentimental.
