V (real name Taehyung), member of international K-Pop super group BTS, has just released a touching new song for Itaewon Class OST.
The hit drama stars Park Seo Joon, a friend of Taehyung, undoubtedly adding to the star's interest in recording a song for the soundtrack.
Before the song dropped, Taehyung said of the opporutnity, "I read the original webtoon 'Itaewon Class' before seeing the drama, and I remember that I enjoyed reading it, while also learning some life lessons from the story."
He continued, "The character of Park Sae Roy left a particularly deep impression on me, and I really liked him. So I'm really thrilled that a close friend of mine, whom I really like, is playing the role of Park Sae Roy."
He added, "I'm grateful to be able to take part in such a great drama with a self-composed song of mine. I hope that you'll show it a lot of love."
BTS fans did not disappoint, and "Sweet Night" has made Taehyung the only other Korean soloist after PSY to have a song debut at #1 on both US and Uk iTunes charts.

It's time to study.
Now that you've flooded Instagram with photos of black squares, it's time to hunker down for some real activism.
If you're a white person, you're sitting on top of about four centuries of institutionalized racism. In the wake of George Floyd's murder by police and countless Black Lives Matter protests across the nation, it's time to show up—with your body, with your voice, and with your brain.
