If we’re Facebook friends or you’re one of my Twitter followers, then you must know that Byun Baekhyun is my ultimate bias from my favorite group, EXO. I post, tweet and talk about him every time I get an opportunity to do so. I just love him so much. There are a lot of reasons why I swerved into his lane and I think that’s good for another blog post. But among my pool of reasons is his vocals.
Fun fact: He ended up as my bias because of this certain Don’t Go fancam. I don’t know how someone can watch that and not end up being his fan.
With every note he hits and every lyric he utters, you can hear and feel the exact emotion that he wants for his listeners to feel. His voice is able to perfectly translate the desired emotion of the song. Emotionally-packed voice, as I liked to refer to it. I’m vulnerable when it comes to him because he has this power of turning me into a mush. My heart just instantly fills up with various emotions. 어떻게?
So upon the news of SM releasing a song in which he took part of, I was over the moon. Fans were highly anticipating it because it has been for quite some time now since Baekhyun released a solo song. For me, I experienced double the excitement because it’s the first solo song that he’s releasing wherein I’m already an EXO-L and his fan.
April 14th, D-DAY, SM finally released the song and music video. As expected of Baekhyun, he made his charming-self appear in the MV in full force and sang the song into perfection. Never did I doubt that his song for SM Station 2 would be anything but that.
Take You Home (바래다줄게) music video is aesthetically pleasing and thoroughly captured the message of the song. People who doesn’t understand Korean will be able to at least guess the gist of it. But don’t be too fooled by its happy vibe because it actually masks the tinge of sadness of its lyrics. Read the English translation here. It’s about an unrequited love and the guy still choosing to be there for the girl even if he is not her man.
