Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, our Fourth for September 2016.
There have been a few interesting new KPOP releases over the past few weeks, however we’ve chosen the duet release from ultimate challenge leader Yoo Jae Sok and boy band EXO 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 7.3 million times on the SMTOWN YouTube Channel. Here are our reasons for choosing “Dancing King” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song is fun, catchy and memorable. It’s certainly one of the best vocal performances from (non-singer) Yoo Jae Sok.
  • Secondly the video tells an interesting behind the scenes story of the concert, but adds in some nice graphics and post-production.
  • Finally EXO debuted around 5 years ago now and are one of the most popular kpop groups currently. Couple them with hugely popular presenter Yoo Jae Sok and you’ve got gold.
  • On the negative side; it’s a special release and not meant to stand the test of time.
