BTOB’s Yook Sung Jae has released a video of him performing JYJ Kim Junsu’s song ‘Yesterday,’ which was released through the group’s official Naver Starcast channel, and was part of the agency’s cover song project ‘I Will be your Melody 3.’
Yook Sung Jae had decided on Kim Junsu’s ‘Yesterday,’ and he said at the beginning of his clip, “I decided to choose this song by Kim Junsu, as he is someone whom I had idolized since I was little. I have been enthralled by this song all winter, and I’ve even been listening to it while traveling on the roads. Because it’s a song by a sunbae that I respect, so I feel honored yet cautious at the same time. Even if I don’t do as well, please let me off.”
From the clip, Yook Sung Jae was able to project his own emotions into the song, and projected a different feel from Kim Junsu.
