Jyongri’s 8th single, entitled 無敵な愛, was released on 08.19.09. The title track was used as the theme song to the dorama Maid Deka.

無敵な愛 is an upbeat track that shows off what Jyongri can really do. The song starts off with pure instrumentation that definitely catches the listener’s ear at first listen. It’s upbeat nature and sleekness is something not truly familiar with Jyongri’s music and keeps the listener excited for what is to come next. Following is the first verse and Jyongri provides smooth and cool vocals that perfectly support the music. The chorus keeps up the strong pace from the verses and with the rapidity that Jyongri delivers the lyrics with, it really does catch the ear. She sounds particularly strong when she sings “I love you forever,” finishing off the section wonderfully. This is easily one of Jyongri’s best songs and proves that she’s got so much more in her than just ballads.

However the cheesy effect comes in with the chorus as she sings “Let’s start today so no-one can beat us.” It’s not very strong but it’s just nice.

In order to promote the single, a PV for 無敵な愛 was made. The video features two different Jyongris. One is more polished and pretty while the other is dirty and looks more desperate. Both of them sit in their rooms and long. Even though it’s quite simple, it’s an effective visual representation for the song.

Single Ranking: A –

Jyongri certainly stepped up her game for this release. Undoubtedly, 無敵な愛 is one of the strongest songs she has released and probably the strongest A-side. Hopefully she’ll continue to experiment a little because from this song, the results can be very great.
