V’s unique and soulful voice is the ultimate attraction of the song and the instrumentals make his voice stand out even more. It is particularly addictive especially at the second half of the song where he beautifully hums against the violin sound.

A comforting and a healing track, “Sweet Night” gives hope that one day everything will be alright again. The song relates to the various turmoils the main character, Park Sae Ro Yi has to go through and wishes that he can finally have his sweet night.

Remarkably, the lines “How could I know/ One day I’d wake up feeling more/ But I had already reached the shore/ Guess we were ships in the night”  leave a deep impression as it elicits the feeling of longing for the moments of the past.
