EXO’s D.O. drops original song ‘Bite’ for K-drama ‘Bad Prosecutor’
- READ MORE: Every EXO song ranked in order of greatness
On October 19, a brand-new contribution to the official soundtrack of K-drama series Bad Prosecutor was unveiled. Titled ‘Bite’, the song is performed by EXO’s D.O, who also stars in the series as its lead. Although D.O. has recorded original tracks for his films in the past, this marks his first time contributing a song to a television drama soundtrack as a soloist. While there is no official accompanying visual for the new song at the time of publication, ‘Bite’ is now available to be streamed on all major music platforms.
In the original announcement made by SM Entertainment earlier this month, per The Fact, ‘Bite’ was described as a song with a dynamic melody, accompanied by an air of mystery and a “heart-racing rhythm”. The track is also said to contain a strong meaning of biting into something and refusing to let go no matter what.
Bad Prosecutor airs on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, with a 12-episode run. D.O. stars as the lead character Jin Jung in the series, a hot-headed but effective prosecutor known for his poor manners and unconventional methods.
Starring opposite him is actress Lee Se-hee (Hospital Playlist 2), as his professional, cool-headed colleague Shin Ah-ra, who watches over Jin Jung despite the differences in their work approaches.
In a three-star review of the series, NME’s Tanu I. Raj wrote: “Bad Prosecutor does not take itself too seriously, which is a double-edged sword. While that does wonders for the comedy and the thinly veiled absurdity – even in the middle of a gruesome murder – it also makes plot developments convenient and predictable.”
In other EXO news, member Xiumin made his long-awaited solo debut with his mini-album ‘Brand New’ late last month, led by a title track of the same name. This makes the vocalist the seventh member of the boyband to go solo.
