Modern rock band Mate has released music videos for their latest songs “Haru” and “Baby.”
Consisting of vocal and guitar Lim Heon Il, vocal and keyboard Jung Joon Il, and drummer Lee Hyun Jae, Mate went on a hiatus in 2011 when Lim Heon Il and Jung Joon Il enlisted for their mandatory military service. Even after their discharge, the group continued their hiatus, while Jung Joon Il and Lim Heon Il released solo albums, and Lee Hyun Jae went into acting, appearing in dramas like “Shut Up Flower Boy Band” and “Queen of the Office.”
The group’s first album in three and a half years, “End of the World,” consists of six songs including the pre-release track “Baby” and the title track “Haru.” While “Baby” is an upbeat song with a quirky music video to match, “Haru” is an emotional ballad with an equally dramatic music video.
As Lee Hyun Jae is currently busy with his acting activities in China, he will not be participating in the group’s promotional activities. The other two members stated, “This promotion will be without him but we will continue without member changes or band name changes. We will be waiting for Hyun Jae to join us later.”
