NakJoon, also known as Bernard Park, is finally coming back with a digital single “Still”. A year since his last release of “Blame” featuring rapper Changmo, fans are all excited for the new release. In preparation for this comeback, it was revealed that NakJoon had lost a whopping 21kg! Two teaser images of NakJoon were released on JYP Entertainment official sites on 2 October 2018, surprising fans with a dramatic change of look. The teaser images flaunted the sharp facial features of NakJoon as well as a mesmerising gaze filled with emotions.
The title song, “Still…” is a pop ballad about a broken up couple reflecting on their feelings towards each other. The deepness of NakJoon’s vocals could be heard right from the beginning of the song which will progress to an intensified chorus that evoke the sense of painful parting. Meanwhile, an unexpected news of a collaboration between NakJoon and Luna was announced when MV teaser video was dropped, featuring Luna in it. Many can anticipate the blend of NakJoon’s soulful singing along with Luna’s unique vocals in “Still…”.
Alongside the title track, teasers of the side track, “Sleep Mode” was also released in the form of lyric clips. Composed by Eco Bridge and lyrics written by fellow labelmate, Young K from DAY6, “Sleep Mode” is an urban R&B track conveying the desire to be alone after a breakup yet yearning for the return of the lover. On a radio program (Music Access) that NakJoon is hosting currently, he shared that the lyrics for “Sleep Mode” were completed through conversations with Young K on the phone. The duo did not even meet up for discussions! Despite the absence of meeting face-to-face due to schedule conflicts, the quality of the lyrics was not compromised. In addition, the track consists of two versions, Korean and English.
Looking at the drastic transformation, NakJoon has definitely put in lots of handwork and effort for this anticipated comeback. Check out the music video for “Still…” below!
