Watch: KNKs Heejun Beautifully Covers Indie Band Song For His Birthday With A Little Help From Kwak Dong Yeon
On May 7, KNKs Heejun released a cover he made of indie band 10cms song, Goodnight for his birthday.
Heejuns actual birthday is on May 8, and it is clear he prepared this song cover as a gift back to his fans on his special day as he released the cover with an accompanying video titled, Dear. Tinkerbell.
To prepare this gift for Tinkerbells, Heejun received some help from a good friend, actor Kwak Dong Yeon. It turns out that the music video was filmed by Kwak Dong Yeon himself. Retweeting the official KNK Twitter accounts tweet sharing the song cover video, Kwak Dong Yeon wrote his own message, I really worked hard to film this. Even though its lacking, please enjoy watching it.

Its lovely to realize the two came together as friends to create this gift for fans on Heejuns own birthday. The footage filmed by Kwak Dong Yeon features Heejun walking across an overpass bridge late at night as he gazes at the cars flashing by and the city lights that surround him. Wistful and almost melancholy in mood, the music video provides the perfect visual backdrop for Heejuns mellow vocals.
