Kim Dong-hyun’s Solo Track “MORE”
In this special album, 5NALLY, all 5 AB6IX members got a chance to showcase their talent and skills through a solo release. Not only they performed their own solo songs, but each member also took part in composing and writing the solo track for this album.
The first solo track that opens up this album belongs to the main vocalist, Jeon-woong, who sings an R&B style song titled “Moondance”. Shortly after, Kim Dong-hyun followed the track with an R&B pop genre track titled “More”. Kim Dong-hyun’s track is the second track in this 5-song album.
“More” is a pop R&B song about wanting to breathe slowly while spending time with loved ones because time seems to run so fast.
The hook includes the lyrics “more more more” that describes the singer’s desire to be with the girl more and more:
I wanna be with you
More more more more
I wanna breathe very slowly
So I can see you for a long time
The second part of the hook contains the sound of the clock seconds that appears at the beginning and end of the song and corresponds to the rest of the lyrics:
Time goes Tick Tock Tock Tock Tock
For me, it’s only you you you you…
I wanna hold my breath till I suffocate, girl
So I can see you forever…
“More” (더 더) is “a general mid-tempo K-Pop song that showcased current trends instead of Dong-hyun’s personal artistry. Even though the song feels a little bit generic, it still has ‘a better hook than Jeon Woong’s solo track’.”
The music video for “More” sung by Dong-hyun was released on Thursday, February 20th, 2020.
Through this music video, fans can see Kim Dong Hyun’s charismatic appearance when singing a romantic song, with a cinematic video concept.
Now, the MV has been watched for more than 2.9 million times and also received warm responses from the fans in the YouTube comment section.
