Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week. This week we’ve chosen the new release by IU (아이유) called “Friday” (금요일에 만나요) which features Jang Yi-jeong (장이정) of History (히스토리). The song is also called See You on Friday in some places. It was released this Thursday December 19th and has amassed just over 364,000 views so far on YouTube. Here are our reasons for choosing “Friday” for our song of the week:

  • Firstly the song is soft and sweet, and flows at a good pace.
  • Secondly the video is simple but cool. Plus the single camera pan from start to finish is nice.
  • Finally IU always releases quality and this song is no different.
  • On the negative side; although the song and video are nice it maybe missing a little something extra to make it stand the test of time.
