We all love watching Korean dramas. Most of us are probably even guilty of neglecting the real world from time to time so we can go on K-drama benders and marathon our favorite shows.

By in News posted Oct August 6th, 2014 No comments

Having had a hiatus from Japanese promotions for more than a year, 2AM finally returned to their Japanese fans with a short version music video of their latest track “Bye Bye”!

Unlike their previous Japanese single “One Spring Day,” the music video is set in a simple black background, showing nothing but shadowed close-ups of the four individual members. Wearing simply a white flannel and neat hairstyles, 2AM hold genuine expressions portraying the desire and pain of letting a lover go.

Showing snippets of Jokwon, Jinwoon, Changmin, and Seulong singing, the distinct tones of each of their voices is evident from the elegant piano playing in the background. With just one instrument playing, it’s easy to fully engage yourself in the 81-second clip.

All in all, fans can expect a surprise Japan comeback from 2AM within this last month of summer, following the heavy stream of upcoming returns back in Korea
