Kristel Fulgar is currently gaining momentum with the release of her latest single while she is in South Korea. Celebrating her birthday on December 29, Kristel launched her first single in two years titled “Never Close Enough” on various streaming platforms.
Kristel self-produced the song and co-wrote it with Ysabelle Cuevas, a singer, composer, and arranger with whom she has a real-life friendship.
“This is my first-ever self-written song, and I feel incredibly fulfilled as a singer. It’s a huge
achievement for me and the best birthday gift I can give myself,” Kristel FULGAR
The Filipino singer, actress, and vlogger, renowned for her uplifting Korean-themed content, embraced a distinct style in this song, exposing a more profound aspect of her identity. Kristel characterizes it as a composition centered on “moving forward in life without any worries or regrets.”
Simultaneously, fans expressed their affection and encouragement for the artist. Comments like “I found a healing place in your voice” and “This song is so beautiful, like right people at the right time but never destined” echoed their sentiments.
Hard-hitting, heartbreaking lyrics like “Stars won’t align just because we wished for it” and “Even from miles away, I’d still be happy for you,” which Kristel identifies as her favorite lines, are what make “Never Close Enough” so powerful.
Following the release of her single, Kristel was asked about her plans. She said, “I’ll just keep doing what I do—creating more vlogs while I’m in Korea and sharing more content and I’m always open to any opportunities that come my way.”
