• Title: Letting Go (놓아 놓아 놓아)
  • Artist: DAY6
  • Runtime: 3:49   Language: Korean
  • Date: April 10, 2016

After the departure of their band member, Junhyeok, for personal reasons, DAY6 made a comeback with their latest EP album, Daydream. They also released a new music video for their title track, Letting Go. Young K participated in the lyrics and composition of Letting Go, including the production of the album. The other band members were involved in creating the songs and the album, as well.

Letting Go is a soulful rock song, quite different and refreshing from the usual Kpop that is heard often. There are tidbits of pop and a very brief rap into the song, which is a creative idea, but also sometimes usual in rock songs where there is a "talking" lyrical phrase. As for the song itself, the group sings about letting a girl go and breaking up with her because they believe they are not good enough for her. For her to be happy, she needed to be let go. But of course, there is still the nostalgia for the good memories and the feel of regret.

For the music video, the main set that is used a whole band setup where the environment is surrounded by instruments and band gear. It really shows that despite the departure of a band member, DAY6 is still a cohesive band that will stick together through thick and thin. There aren't many rock bands in South Korea and to see the band hold this rock aesthetic in a place where pop music is the mainstream, only makes them unique and stand out.
