Miljenko Matijevic to wear hanbok in upcoming music video
Miljenko Matijevic, most familiar to Korean audiences through his rock band Steelheart’s 90s hit song “She’s Gone,” will wear hanbok, or traditional Korean clothing, in his upcoming music video “Trust in Love,” according to Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles on Thursday.
The song will be about wishing for peace between North and South Korea. The music video was filmed at the Korean Bell of Friendship in San Pedro, California. The bell was presented by the Korean government to the U.S. to celebrate the bicentennial of the U.S. and to symbolize friendship between the two countries.
Matijevic will appear donning hanbok and striking the bell. The video will also include scenes of traditional Korean choreography.
The singer was said to have been inspired to write the song after watching news about the relationship between the North and South. The song is about unity, peace and love between the two countries. The song and the music video will be released on March 2.
The singer has featured on several original soundtracks for local television series such as his track “Stay” (2015) in OCN drama series “My Beautiful Bride” (2015) and “My Love is Gone” (2016) for SBS drama series “Glamorous Temptation (2015-16). He also made a surprise appearance on MBC music show “King of Masked Singer” in 2016.
