Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, our fourth for May 2015. Although there were a number of interesting new releases recently, we’ve chosen the new release from KPOP supergroup group SHINee. The song is titled “View” and it was released a few days ago on Monday May 18th. In that time it has been viewed around 3,500,000 times on the SMTown YouTube Channel. Here are our reasons for choosing “View” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song is lively, fresh and perfect for the summer.
  • Secondly the video contains a nice mix of storyline and dance routine.
  • Finally SHINee have been around since 2008 and have a huge worldwide following. They therefore only release quality.
  • On the negative side; the song is nice but is it a little too safe?
