Watch: Younha Releases MV For Soothing Remake Of Seo Taijis Take Five Starring Shin Se Kyung

In June, it was confirmed that talented vocalist Younha would be participating in Seo Taijis remake project for his 25th debut anniversary and released the MV for her remake of the artists hit Take Five earlier today.

Take Five was released in 1998 by Seo Taiji as a message to fans saying that he would return to the music scene again after the retirement of Seo Taiji and Boys in 1996. Younhas remake of the song stays true to the original in that it conveys the feeling of hope and comfort through her melodious and strong vocals but also differs from the original song with a softer, groovier pop sound.
