Adam Levine’s “Lost Stars” from the Begin Again soundtrack has become a national sensation in Korea in recent months, leading numerous K-pop artists including ZE:A’s Kevin, SPICA.S, LUNAFLY, G.NA, Juniel and Kwak Dong Yeon to cover the ballad.

But indie artist Hong Yuna‘s cover video of the song may have the highest production value to date.

The singer recently collaborated with the Korea United College Orchestra (KUCO) to create a simple and elegant cover of the pop-rock ballad. Directed and produced by Jimin Choi, the video showcases not only Hong’s clear and impressive vocals but also the student musicians’ enchanting performances.

You can watch the video below:


The video was released by Malhada, a Korean film production and entertainment company. Malhada is responsible for producing unique music videos such as “You’ve Got Mail” ft. Darth Vader and “Don’t Break Up,” which tells the heartbreaking love story between a blind girl and a deaf boy.
