Watch this Cover of BTS’ ‘Fake Love’ by Undying Inc’s Drummer
Metaller Nishant Hagjer unveils his take on the South Korean group’s record-breaking hit single
In the video released via his personal YouTube channel, Hagjer presents his rock-infused take on the septet’s 2018 single “Fake Love” from their third studio album Love Yourself 轉 ‘Tear.’ In the description the drummer states he “never listened to the genre but became a massive fan of the group after watching their music videos.” The most striking moment in the cover comes right after the final breakdown; Hedgar inserts a quick pause in the track before thundering into an impressive display of his skills.
His statement and cover come as a surprise not only because of the vast differences between K-pop and metal as industries and genres, but also because of the disdain fans of each genre have towards the other.
