Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, our Third for September 2016.
There have been a few interesting new KPOP releases over the past few weeks, however we’ve chosen the new release from 2PM with a song titled “Promise (I’ll Be)“. and it was released on YouTube on Monday September 12th, in that time it’s been viewed over 1.5 million times on the YJPEntertainment YouTube Channel. Here are our reasons for choosing “Promise (I’ll Be)” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song is simple and in a 2pm style. It has a catchy chorus and overall is enjoyable to listen to.
  • Secondly the video features a slightly storyline and dramatic shorts from each of the groups members.
  • Finally 2PM debuted all the way back in 2008 and have remained popular since then, the group have moved onto other activities so it’s nice to see them singing again.
  • On the negative side; the bedroom scene was a little unneeded.
