[Song Review] Chen – Shall we?

I’ve been fooled that this MV will be out not at midnight, but at 6PM KST. Well, I was wrong and now I’m happily listening to Jongdae’s new song.

The song begins with the phrase we got in the first teaser and Chen staying on a roof in the evening, with the whole city behind him.

It’s sad that tonight is fading
I want to hold on and not let go
My warm heart like this tea cup
I’m shy and it’s a little tacky

The lyrics put us through a night between two to be lovers. Chen is sweetly singing and portraying the emotion – to be with the one you want. I think his voice is the best for such songs and especially ballads.

“Shall we?” gives a huge 80’s/90’s feelings. I remember listening to such song in my childhood and loving them. I like how he is performing it alternating medium and high tones, all of this effortlessly.

What shall we do about tonight?
Shall we cross the sparkling galaxy together?
In the night where the lazy streetlights are drowsy
In the night, tonight

The video aesthetic is like out of this world. It begins playing in late evening while we slowly move to the sunrise. Watching the couple and their playfulness, and then switching to just Chen singing on this roof – it’s gorgeously directed and definitely plays with the emotion of the viewer.

I’m absolutely content with the MV and the song itself. I know how good vocalist is Chen and haven’t expected to be less good. While listening I can imagine myself having the best time of my life with this song playing around.

Really, an amazing angelic song. Good job, Kim Jongdae! I admire you.

Shall we?

It’s sad that tonight is fading
I want to hold on and not let go
My warm heart like this tea cup
I’m shy and it’s a little tacky

Don’t Don’t hide yourself
It’s sad if I’m in a hurry alone
My burning heart like that flame
I want to give it to you, I want to stay
Don’t hurt me

What shall we do about tonight?
Shall we cross the sparkling galaxy together?
In the night where the lazy streetlights are drowsy
In the night, tonight

So soon before we know
The stars are moving step by step
With the scent of this night carried upon the wind from somewhere
I want to be mesmerized, I want to lean on it
But why are you just smiling?
What shall we do about tonight?
Shall we cross the sparkling galaxy together?
In the night where the lazy streetlights are drowsy

In the night, tonight
Come into my arms
I’ll hold you tight
Please don’t hide it my dear
Come to me just the way you are
What shall we do about tonight?
Shall we cross the sparkling galaxy together?
In the night where the lazy streetlights are drowsy
In the night, tonight
