Yuju of K-pop girl group GFriend is the featured vocalist on South Korean singer-songwriter and television personality Yoon Jong Shin's latest song, “The Last Exam.”

Composed by Yoon Jong Shin with Lee Geun Ho, and featuring lyrics written by the former, the sweet, jazzy pop song reflects on how the mental preparation ahead of a breakup and the nervous anticipation of separation are similar to that of cramming before the titular test. Yuju sings the track solo but is backed by soft pop-rock elements and airy harmonies.

“The Last Exam” is part of Yoon Jong Shin’s 2018 monthly release project. Yoon is the head of Mystic Entertainment. He has seen four songs appear on the Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 chart.

The song was released through a contemplative music video that features a woman preparing for an exam while reflecting on her romance. Watch it here:
