I realised that I’ve never really expressed my feelings about a single song on here before, but this song feels like my life’s theme song of the moment so I had to share.
I followed JJ Project when they first debuted and when they debuted as part of GOT7, I never thought they would ever come back as a unit again, but I guess never say never? I was so excited when they announced their comeback. 😭
Their new album sounds nothing like their debut album but in a good way. It is SO much better and I fell in love with it instantly. In it, my favourite song is 내일, 오늘 (Tomorrow, Today), which is such a meaningful song and I’ve had it on constant replay since the album was released. The lyrics speak volumes to anyone who has ever felt uncertain about their lives. It feels like the theme song of my life of late, especially now that I’ve reached my late 20s and feel thrown into another quarter-life crisis. 😭 In order to understand how I feel, let’s take a look at the lyrics. 💕
M2 has graciously decided to bring us the ‘ASMR Lyric Live’ series, and while I don’t like ASMR in general, Jinyoung’s version of the song sounded so emotional and heartfelt that it touched me even more. 😭 역시 “아프니까 청춘이다”? 😔
Here is JB’s version if you’re interested. His voice is great but he spoke too fast for my liking. Why you rushing through it, boy? 😆 Though he said he said it slowly, I’m not sure he was aware of how fast he was. 😂
On an unrelated note, I was incredibly blessed to have been able to watch them perform it live on a Music Bank recording during my 2017 Korea trip. We didn’t know which artists were going to be on until they appeared on stage, so as you can imagine, I was thrilled and squealing internally when JJ Project took the stage. We were also given group photo opportunities with two artistes after the recording, and one of them was JJ Project, just like I was hoping for. 😭💕
