On August 9, 2017, BOYFRIEND released a mini-album after two years spent on hiatus. The mini-album was entitled “Never End”, with the title track Star. They showed their existence in the Korean music industry by releasing Star along with its music videp. In this ballad song, Jeongmin contributed as composer and writter, and the song was directed with Superkiro and Jooheon.
Even though this is a ballad, BOYFRIEND’s concept is darker and more aesthetic. In the music video, the members seemed to show a sad expression and a dance that looked more aesthetic and in accordance with the lyrics sung. This song described the longing for someone that they love, the person whom they considered to be their light and who became a star in their life.
Still showing the concept of dark and adult, in this song they put out their adults side by becoming bad boys, and the music video uses a concept of light and dark.
Obsession comes in style of hip-hop, against a background of wall murals, with the members adorning themselves with tattoos. Obsession’s tempo is still upbeat like others of their songs, and it was paired with a powerful dance.
To listen to what the song is like, please hear and watch the music video below!
