V‘s Layover track “Blue” got the music video treatment earlier this week, showcasing the BTS member in black and white while he impatiently searched for someone at an apartment complex to no avail. The impatience from the video took a back seat in V’s live performance of “Blue” on Friday (Sept. 15) for Naver’s NPOP, but the black-and-white filter remained as he took the stage.
The stripped back showcase features V wearing a similar look to the one in the “Blue” video, consisting of a studded black leather jacket, matching black leather pants and a classic white T-shirt. The BTS vocalist takes the stage solo, with white smoke billowing on the floor around him and the lighting design resembling shards of glass.
“What if I show you/ And make it all new/ Green, yellow, red, blue/ Whatever seems good to you/ A day to the moon/ Like borrowed stars/ Everyone’s looking at you/ But, baby, you’re all blue, blue/ Blue, blue/ Blue, blue/ Blue, blue/ Blue, blue, blue,” the 27-year-old sings on the first verse and chorus.
The new performance of “Blue” comes amid the arrival of V’s Tiny Desk Korea set, where he performed a series of tracks from Layover on Sept. 14. His performance — a brief three songs — included album tracks “Love Me Again,” “Slow Dancing” and “For Us.”
