Kim Tae-hyung, better known to ARMY as V, is never far from the spotlight.
V marked the occasion by performing one of the first concerts for Tiny Desk Korea, a new series based on the popular NPR spot.
Filmed in Seoul, South Korea last month, with a newly assembled production crew and eight-member session band – many of whom flew from the U.S. for the recording – V unleashed three slinky Layover cuts.
V kicks things off with “Love Me Again,” takes us for a spin of “Slow Dancing,” and ends matters with “For Us.”
“These songs evoke a sense of fleeting tranquility, as if they effortlessly pass by and offer a soothing pause,” he remarks in his native tongue.
The 11-minute performance video is part of the newly launched international version of Tiny Desk, a joint venture between NPR and LG U+, the Korean telecommunications and media company. The first few episodes, including performances by the Kim Chang Wan Band, Sunwoo Jung-A and the Yoon Suk Cheol Trio, are available on the Tiny Desk Korea YouTube channel, with new content dropping each Thursday.
Layover, meanwhile, has been warmly received since its Sept. 8 release. Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (Sept. 8) on Billboard, choosing the new solo collection as their favorite music release of the past week – with 96% of the vote.
