Hello and Welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week. This week we’ve chosen “Stealer” (맘도둑) by Kang Seung-Yoon (강승윤). It was released this past Tuesday (a day before the usual KPOP video uploads) August 13th and has around 220,000 views so far on YouTube. Here are our reasons for choosing “Stealer” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song builds up nicely and Kang Seung Yoon delivers a strong performance.
  • Secondly the video tells a simple love story with a nice amount of fantasy and reality. BTW The actress in the video is Yoon Jin-yi.
  • Finally it’s nice to see a KPOP artist singing and playing an instrument instead of just dancing.
  • On the negative side; the video seems a little spring like maybe early summer, but that’s only a minor issue.
