KPop, On Repeat

[01] Fandomly Bookish: On Repeat

Welcome to ON REPEAT, a new Fandomly Bookish blog feature!

I conceptualized On Repeat before year 2020 started but real life happened. I had to push it back to a time where I can breathe, sit and write things down. My original goal was to start the year, update my Facebook Page daily and compile songs that I’m currently listening to repetitively in an album. While I’m also going to do that, why not update my blog with it as well? It’ll just be a short post with me sharing what I felt while listening to it and other ramblings. 

Today, I’m sharing with you the ACTUAL top two songs that I’ve been constantly listening to on Spotify – Spring Breeze and 360.

“We’ll meet again
When the spring spreeze passes
I’ll smile brightly
When the spring breeze passes…” 🎵🎶

It’s quite funny to think that I fell in love with Wanna One backwards. How I fell in love with them when they aren’t active as a group anymore. (But that’s a great sign for them, tho. They can still attract listeners given the situation. That they really had a great run for a year and a couple of months.)

I’m sure I’ve (you’ve) heard their songs in the past, mostly in passing. I’m sorry I didn’t give any effort to really look into them. But again, it’s never too late. When I started to dig deeper into them, I randomly picked Spring Breeze as the first song to listen to and not knowing anything about it. It being the group’s last title track and what mood I’m getting myself into.

First Listen: I was instantly hooked with it and got affected by the emotion of their voices. There’s just something heart-clenching about their voices in this song.

I went into a research spree about Spring Breeze, the English translation, fancams and everything. It’s a bittersweet yet beautiful song. Especially, if you’ve been with them since the beginning. I’m sure all your memories with them flooded through your mind upon listening to this. Am I right? I wasn’t even there but I really felt it. The lyrics just cuts deep into the core and together with its beat…I’m glad that this was their final song. No games, just overflowing with gratefulness, love and promise. It was really a well-celebrated run with their Wannables. 💙

360 a hypnotizing song from former Wanna One member and now a successful soloist – Park Jihoon. With its beat, dreamy synths and Jihoon’s mellow voice during the intro, the song just compels you to listen to it. For you to give its full attention. Apparently, that feeling really coincides with the lyrics of the song. As it goes like this:

“The flash burst 360°
Pay attention to me hurry up
I want to go further, to the top
I prepared to show myself properly
Just follow me
Can you see that?…”

You see that?
