Wonwoo and Mingyu of Seventeen have kicked off the band’s "Power of Love” project with their unit single Bittersweet .
The two, although both are mainly rappers for the band, teamed up as a duo to demonstrate their vocal abilities through this new digital single. It is more solemn than the band’s signature bright and upbeat tracks, and has a “more mature appeal, ” Wonwoo said.
“After writing ‘Why did love become love?’ for the lyrics, I started to have a lot more thoughts. The words make you keep thinking and every time the answer’s different, ” Mingyu said.
They both had a hand in writing the lyrics. Mingyu zoomed in on the moment when one has to choose between love and friendship, while Wonwoo summed up the song as a bittersweet moment of youth.
As for featuring artiste Lee Hi, Wonwoo explained that the singer popped up in his mind while making the chorus and thanked her for gladly accepting the offer. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
