SEVENTEEN Seungkwan has given his fans a beautiful new cover!
On January 16, Seungkwan turned 24 years old, and to mark the occasion, the singer prepared a special surprise for his fans.
At 1:16am KST, Seungkwan posted a soulful cover of Girls’ Generation’s solo b-side ‘Time Lapse’, explaining that he decided not to shoot the accompanying video because he wanted CARAT [SEVENTEEN fans] so he can focus. entirely on the song.
Seungkwan wrote, “This is a song that I first discovered when I was 20 years old, and since then I’ve listened to it countless times, but every time I hear it, it’s a song that evokes so many different emotions in me. Some days it makes me feel broken and suffocated, like I’m going to burst into tears at the slightest touch, and other days it brings me peace and strength so I can start all over again. Maybe that’s why it was even harder for me to sing that song.”
“My desire to get well [in singing] has been growing lately,” he continued. “Whether I sing well or not, I also want to become a voice that can evoke many different emotions in CARAT. It’s okay if this song brings you comfort, and it’s also okay if the song doesn’t comfort you, it just makes you sad.”
Happy Birthday, Seungkwan!
