M&D (Heechul & Jungmo) Release “Close Your Mouth”

Super Junior‘s Heechul and the TRAX‘s Jungmo have teamed up to form SM Entertainment‘s newest project group, M&D.
Heechul introduced the group on Twitter as “a selfish team that breaks up hundreds of times a day, isn’t refreshing or cute, has a dirty personality, and does what it wants to do.”
Their debut song, “Close Ur Mouth,” composed and arranged by musical genius Jungmo and written by Heechul, fits Heechul’s summary to a tee (The Korean title literally translates to “What are you looking at?).
In the song, a guy who was just dumped tries to get back at his ex-girlfriend by telling her off. He basically turns the breakup around, explaining that he’s cool with it because there are plenty of girls who want him (and no guys chasing after her). Psh, boys and their pride.
Not exactly the kind of lyrics we’re used to hearing from SM artists — but that’s basically the point of this whole project: for Jungmo and Heechul to pursue their own unique interests in music. They’re planning to release song after song, for as long as they can, in any genre they choose.
For this one, they’ve gone with what SM Entertainment has called disco rock, and fans are already anticipating M&D’s next digitial single.
Having full control over their music must not have been enough artistic freedom for Heechul because he went on to direct and produce the “Close Ur Mouth” music video, which was filmed at a karaoke bar in Seoul.
He called on celeb buddies Supreme Team’s Simon D, F.T. Island’s Hongki and Jonghun, BEAST’s Junhyung, comedian Kim Kyungjin, and Miss A’s Jia to make special appearances in the video, and the response has been hot!
