I’ll be honest. I’m a little biased for this track, mainly because I’ve thought that K-pop needs to keep pushing into genres where they could have a bit more representation.

Except for the most dedicated, many of us are getting a little weary of the heavily treaded hip-hop/rap genres in K-pop. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, and it more than pays their bills, but K-pop could stand to branch out a bit more into pop, like SHAUN has done here.

Yes, there are a bajillion pop acts out of Korea, but we need more of them to rise to the top.

To this track! First it’s got a driving four on the floor beat which immediately gets your head bobbing and your foot tapping.

The guitar melody in the opening is an immediate classic. The guitar tone is so pretty, and the melody just hooks you immediately. This chorus is also just gorgeous. Amazingly buttery vocals in the chorus, it’s all so smooth. Wow.

Hopefully we see this track do well in all the metrics that matter. We need more tracks like this.

Lyrics for Shooting Star

Waited for you at the very end of this maze
I finally get to meet you
A ray of light shining down to this burnt city
I fell to you like a meteor (Uh uh)

[Chorus]
I keep breathin’ when I’m fallin’
My frozen heart
Endlessly follows you, the light
Cause you never give up on me
I keep breathin’ when I’m fallin’
Every shattered moment
Waves into beautiful flakes
Cause you never give up on me

[Verse 2]
At the end of my vague memory
Somehow your silhouette comes clear
I’ve been wandering with my eyes closed
And a voice calls my name
My cold heart starts to beat

[Chorus]
I keep breathin’ when I’m fallin’
My frozen heart
Endlessly follows you, the light
Cause you never give up on me
I keep breathin’ when I’m fallin’
Every shattered moment
Waves into beautiful flakes
Cause you never give up on me

[Bridge]
If only I could reach you
I’d be more than happy to fall apart
If I’d be next to you, I’d be (Woah oh)

[Chorus]
I keep breathin’ when I’m fallin’
My frozen heart
Endlessly follows you, the light
Cause you never give up on me
I keep breathin’ when I’m fallin’
Every shattered moment
Waves into beautiful flakes
Cause you never give up on me
