On an August night in Seoul, South Korea, a newly shaped manufacturing crew was organising cameras and microphones because the eight-member session band warmed up and rehearsed. A lot of the musicians had flown in from the U.S. only for this efficiency; a number of have been already based mostly in Seoul. The special day was one of many first live shows for Tiny Desk Korea, a model new sequence based mostly midway around the globe from NPR’s places of work in Washington, D.C. It was an thrilling second for everybody within the room as we awaited the arrival of Kim Tae-hyung, 김태형, who most know as V from BTS.
He was about to launch a brand new album, Layover, and he’d by no means carried out the songs stay earlier than. The three sultry cuts on this set are certain to make ARMY go loopy. “Love Me Once more” begins the set with a catchy hook and steamy verses sung in Korean; you do not have to grasp the language to really feel the remorse and loss. He retains the romantic temper going with an uptempo R&B vibe on “Gradual Dancing.” Earlier than the final tune, “For Us,” V says in Korean, “These songs evoke a way of fleeting tranquility, as in the event that they effortlessly move by and provide a soothing pause.”
This video is a part of the newly launched worldwide model of Tiny Desk, a three way partnership between NPR and LG U+, a Korean telecommunications and media firm. All live shows – together with the primary few episodes with the Kim Chang Wan Band, Sunwoo Jung-A and the Yoon Suk Cheol Trio – can be found on the Tiny Desk Korea YouTube channel, which can unveil a brand new video each Thursday.
