Former IZ*ONE‘s Kang Hyewon has surprised her fans by uploading her first solo musical performance to her YouTube channel.
For the past month, Hyewon has been frequently posting behind-the-scenes videos and personality driven content to her channel so this mini-MV was quite a surprising upload.
Hyewon delivers a beautiful performance of a song titled “First Love Letter”. This song was composed by K-Pop songwriter SWEETCH who has worked with many popular groups including LOONA, Lovelyz, and Infinite.
The song has a soft, almost music box quality. Fans in her comments believe this sound suits her well and are already clamoring her to do OSTs.
