Taeyong of NCT 127 can’t hide excitement over ‘Love Del Luna’

Taeyong of NCT 127 took to V Live on Saturday night, looking fairly overwhelmed with excitement. Donning purple hair, the singer explained why he’d included an eggplant emoji in the title of the broadcast: “I used that emoji since my hair looks like an eggplant and I love it.”

He went on to share that he was exploding with happiness because of “Love Del Luna,” the most recent soundtrack for popular drama series “Hotel Del Luna,” in which he played a rapper with vocalist Punch. Speaking of the track’s high position on charts, Taeyong said, “I feel so great tonight. I’ve been put on a pedestal, and I don’t know how to handle this happiness. I’m so thankful for all the love I received.”

Marking the drama series’ 13th soundtrack, “Love Del Luna” was released Saturday evening.
