When the summer warmth starts to fade, the winter breeze lightly embraces our skin, we know that we have approached Fall. This summer, a lot of powerful, energetic tracks were released such as BLACKPINK’s ‘DDU DU DDU DU’ and TWICE’s ‘Dance the Night Away’, and it is now time for Paul Kim to give us a taste of Fall.

Paul Kim shows us that love is more complicated than what most see as just pure joy, as illustrated in many love songs like IZ*ONE’s ‘La Vie en Rose’ where everything is happy, rosy and bubbly. When listening to this song, the audience walks into a beautiful yet realistic love story and explores a journey of love with the feelings of joy, gratefulness and even the guilt of wanting to be better for one another through. Many people say that one matures through a relationship and this song is gracefully executed with Paul Kim being able to express the complexions of feelings and emotions through his soft yet powerful vocals which is well complimented by the precise instrumentals, illustrating the subtle changes that love does to a person. Indeed in reality, event the best relationships are definitely full of ups and downs, and the complicated mix of emotions is what makes love so hard to comprehend, with each relationship so different from one another.
If Summer marks the start of love, then Fall shall mark the maturity of love, which is definitely shown in Paul Kim’s ‘Me After You’
