I’m kind of a traditionalist when it comes to holiday songs and I just want to throw on the same couple of albums over and over. But, I have to admit that one of the things I look forward to every year, well, every year since I got into Kpop, has been the Starship Planet holiday song. It’s not that I listen to these releases all that often or go back to them year after year, but there is something magical about seeing a jumble of idols and artists all together singing a song about how great my Christmas should be.
I assume that’s what they’re saying. That or that they are happy I was a fan again this year.
So this year, again, I want to make sure, the lovely Kchat readership is given the same holiday cheer. Cosmic Girls, MONSTA X, Soyu, K.Will, Boyfriend, Yoo Seung Woo, Mind U, Jung Sewoon, and Duetto are all featured in this year’s track in sweaters, coats, turtlenecks, and smart cocktail dresses bustin’ a groove around a Christmas tree. By bustin’ a groove, I mean crooning a cheerful number while holding glasses of some sort of sparkling rose. There are finger hearts, cakes, headbands, and holiday filters. It’s everything Kpop wants us to have this holiday season all wrapped into one overly cheerful package. It’s actually the perfect accompaniment to Stephanie’s attempt to throw herself into the season. Plus, anything with Sewoon and Monsta X in the same place is basically fodder for holiday domestic fantasy development.
So, gussy up, pour a glass of champagne, hit play. It’s another delight from Starship.
