[Review] My Star – K.Will

It has been a while since we last heard from K.Will. His last promotional round was back in September 2017 with Nonfiction, which was also the title track of the first part of his 4th album. Now, K.Will has returned with the 2nd part of his 4th album, which is titled as Will Be A Start. The title track for this release is My Star. From what I am also reading, this is also his second release as part of a trilogy.

Listening to the song, it made me realize how long it has been since I heard K.Will’s voice. I get drawn to the song mainly for its bright vibes and sound, which is extremely suitable for the Spring season in which South Korea is currently experiencing. Much better than the rainy and cold storm I am experiencing at the moment. While the song does satisfy the need of warmth and craving for the singer’s vocals, the song just simply fits into his portfolio. He doesn’t really have much else to offer with the song. Yes, it has a nice melody and a nice feel-good instrumental. There were nice hooks and moments that definitely has me coming back for more (such as the flowy and sway-along-to melody during the chorus and the dragged out bridge). However, it isn’t his most exciting comeback (the twisty Please Don’t take that honour) and hence I am slightly disappointed with its sound.

The music video features Gian84 and WJSN’s Bona, whom both plays neighbours in the video. Gian84 recently moved in and falls in love with his neighbour at first sight, after offering some food to her. While he can’t get his mind off her, he sees her again at a cafe, in which he falls further in love. He has a few dreams about her (after finding it hard to fall to sleep, to which he counts sheep. Literal sheep), which he wakes up from. In end, it seems like their love story continues when she turns up at his door the next morning. It is a nice love story, which was fitting for the song. What is more important is the fact that K.Will appeared in his music video. I think this is his second time featuring in his own music video (the first being a cameo role where he was killed off in Love Blossom). His presence definitely makes the video feel more wholesome.

Song – 8/10
Music Video – 9/10
Overall Rating – 8.4/10
