R&B singer Wheesung has made quite a name for himself since his debut in the Kpop world in 2002. From his beginnings at YG Entertainment to presently becoming a producer himself, Wheesung has gained recognition by fans all over Korea and beyond.

Recently we reported that back in October Wheesung was asked by famous English R&B singer Craig David to do a Korean cover of his song "Insomnia". This song and MV was released today and it's VERY mediocre (that's me being nice).

All he has added to the original is a bit of Engrish in the introduction with a bit of fancy editing. I believe Wheesung tried to imitate the original song's fast lyrics during the second verse but that was a failure. It was poorly written and due to the excess amount of syllables he basically had to rap the lyrics. The bridge part and the last chorus are the only parts where you can hear Wheesung's talented range. Although I like Wheesung's voice better than Craig David's, this cover just doesn't compare with the original.

Wheesung will be sleepless tonight as he waits to see the reaction of his fans who have been eagerly awaiting the release of the song. Sorry Wheesung, but I am sure every English speaking fan of yours is with me when I say this: Your cover sucks
