Hong Dae Kwang (홍대광) Kpoppin studio with DJ Isak. Hong Dae Kwang is ballad singer that debuted in 2013 under MMO Entertainment.

About the music::
He worked a lot on his new album 너랑 in order to make it a very relaxed album. All the tracks on the album are very relaxing songs that you can smile along with as you listen to them. This recent title track “너랑 (With you)” is kind of about his own experiences, but it is also something he wanted to say to his fans. The song features an acoustic guitar sound, and has sweet lyrics, but could also express the feelings of someone who is feeling a bit lonely. There is nothing that you can throw away; every track is useful in one situation or another.
