On July 11 KST, a short version of the music video for “I Love You,” Daesung’s first solo Japanese single, was released on Youtube. Daesung plays the part of a young man whose girlfriend is dying. He wants to do something for her, but he can’t. The music video displays the heart wrenching story of these two lovers.
There was high anticipation for this video because Daesung worked very hard on displaying emotions of sincerity and sadness. In regards to his first kiss scene, he said, “It was my first time shooting a kiss scene so I was really nervous. I don’t really remember anything. The music video only shows one cut, but we had to shoot it multiple times for different camera angles. I think the rain in the background makes the scene more beautiful.”
Daesung finished his first solo tour in Japan with 20 cities, 26 performances, and 100,000 fans. His first Japanese album single “I Love You” will be officially released on July 31. Daesung collaborated with one of Japan’s top violinists, Hakase Taro, for this love ballad that will be featured in a Japanese drama with the same name. Click here for the music video.
