Putting the old and new of Korean culture into a blender and mixing it well, Kim Hyun Joong returned with Unbreakable.

The song and music video were released on July 18 as a pre-release ahead of his July 22 album comeback, and consider us delighted, since this video is so beautiful, it′d be a shame to keep it under wraps for much longer.

Jay Park also featured in the song and music video, adding a touch of awesome as well.
