Kang Daniel tries to escape his nightmares in “Paranoia” MV

His first release since ‘Magenta.’

Kang Daniel has returned with his latest single, “Paranoia.”

It arrived with a visual that depicts Kang’s fight with his inner demons. In the clip, he struggles to fall asleep as he’s taunted by a shadowy figure and a series of harrowing events.

The lyrics visualize this storyline: “In a space without a single light / When the darkness comes / I lay expressionless, again and again / An еndless fear, a terriblе night.”


“The theme in itself is heavy and distant, but since I’m resolving feelings I’ve personally felt, I wanted to express them honestly,” said Kang of “Paranoia” during an online press conference, per Soompi. “I believe this is a feeling everyone can relate to, there’s only a difference in the extent and the depth.”

“I’m thankful that I can display the feelings I’ve felt through music. The reason I put focus on such a dark aspect is because the majority of people are reluctant to bring this up. I wanted to confess my inner concerns and communicate them,” he added.

“Paranoia” is set to appear on the next installment of the singer’s COLOR series which has so far included Magenta, Cyan and Color on Me. More recently, he linked up with inverness and Anthony Russo for the song “State of Wonder.”
