Junho (준호) from 2PM Brings the Heat in “Winter Sleep”
Despite 2PM’s recent hiatus, main vocalist and dancer Junho (준호) returns with another music video, “Winter Sleep.” Off of his latest album, Winter Sleep, Junho (준호) brings his smooth vocals back into the K-pop scene and is ready to swoon fellow listeners.
The video begins with Junho (준호) in an atmospheric, primary color-filled room. Surrounded by clocks and donning bright sweaters, Junho (준호) sings about not wanting to end a relationship. While many might see this song as just about relationships, Junho (준호) mentions after “so many changes I’ve seen in ten years,” (as translated by JYP Entertainment) hinting towards the song being geared towards fans or fellow 2PM members. With his impending army service, Junho (준호) is surely wondering about his future and his future goodbyes.
Overall, the video is aesthetically pleasing, with contrasting colors present throughout, juxtaposing the bleakness of the snow and the dark sky. Each scene comes together at the end of a long hallway as the door closes, as if closing a chapter of his life. For some who don’t know, 2PM debuted in 2008 under JYP Entertainment. Even after ten years, the group is still well-known and well-loved by people of all ages. Throughout their career, the six-member group has had fruitful acting and solo careers. With the recent enlisting of member Taecyeon (택연), the group has hit a standstill, but fans, or Hottest, are hopeful for a comeback in the future.
For now, fans can enjoy Junho’s (준호) lustrous, silky vocals against the backdrop of the bleak snow setting in “Winter Sleep.” Despite winter being ever-present, Junho (준호) brings a comforting warmth to all of his listeners! Watch the music video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
