A year’s worth of singles came to a close Thursday (Feb. 2) with the release of EXO member Suho’s “Curtain.”
The K-pop idol collaborated with Korean jazz musician Song Youngjoo on the track. With a gentle piano melody courtesy of Song, Suho’s sentimental vocals relay the earnest emotions of the neo-soul love song. The music video for "Curtain" featured Suho in an Inception-inspired altered reality as he moved toward his reluctant love interest, played by Korean actress Kang Sora.
While he has collaborated on several tracks in the past and performed individually at EXO’s concerts, “Curtain” is Suho's first single as a lone vocalist. Another solo by him, “The First Moment,” is part the soundtrack for the currently-airing Korean webseries The Universe’s Star, which he also stars in.
