AceShowbiz - Just when fans of BTS (Bangtan Boys) thought they would not be getting new content from their idols on Friday, August 9, V treated them to a nice surprise. Not only South Korean heartthrob released an English track entitled "Winter Bear" on that day, but he also dropped its music video accompaniment.
The song can serve as a perfect lullaby for fans, as it features V wishing the listeners a "good night, good night." He continues to sing about how dark times recede when together, "Imagine your face/ Say hello to me/ Then all the bad days/ They're nothing to me."
The music video for the song is just as beautiful as the song, opening with a shot of a flock of birds flying through the sky before the camera pans to show V taking photos through from the backseat of a car. He is then seen wandering around cities such as Paris, London, New York and Los Angeles. Judging by the visuals, it looks like the music video was shot when BTS was on the road for their "Love Yourself: Speak Yourself" tour.
Fans, unsurprisingly, were loving both the track and its music video. They couldn't even stop gushing over it to the point where the release trended on social media. Praising V's "soothing and calm" vocals, one fan wrote, "This is really a masterpiece that I could listen to over and over." Someone said, "It's just a beautiful way to show and describe his meaning behind it." Another one dubbed it "the most beautiful song and video by the most beautiful man himself."
"Winter Bear" marked V's second solo song that he released this year, following "Scenery". After the release of the former song, he took to Twitter to reveal that it was his first time writing lyrics in English, adding a variety of hashtags expressing his nervousness and gratitude for RM's help in working on the song.
