Dongwoon Son THE 2nd MINI ALBUM [Happy Birthday]
I just want to tell you a couple of stories.
I am now on the road to a new summer after a pleasant ending of our infinitely warm spring. The cold morning air and the cool wind that brushed your cheeks are the season that you will soon miss.
To prepare for this album, I've been away for a long time.
Although it was not a trip, it was quite a thrill for me to go somewhere far away. Time to prepare, pleasant unexpected encounters, difficult situations that I did not expect, fortunate things that I did not expect but were given like gifts. And as I go through that long journey, maybe I will have a tiring but tolerable time, and I may unexpectedly meet a kind person and gain the strength to go on that journey in a better mood. Each and every one of these things is like a piece of tile that is added to my journey in the end, and as I went through all these things, I thought that my trip would eventually be completed beautifully.
As I was thinking like that, I naturally started thinking about ‘my song’ again. And I thought maybe making a song is like taking a trip.
You can read more about it from my story on the album, but writing songs, adding lyrics, arranging songs, and finally meeting people who listen to my songs—all of these things I think of as my process of making songs. While making a song, I face the long time and memories I have had, bring out the sound I have hidden in it, retouch it, and write down the words that come to mind in the process. My heart and feelings that I recorded and made in that way, that you choose and play my song, and that you sometimes feel my emotions such as comfort or excitement when I made the song together in my songs that I listen to, this series of short stories I thought they would beautifully complete the process of my singing journey. And I was very happy while thinking and preparing for all these things.
With that in mind, in fact, I guess I haven't finished my journey yet. Maybe it won't end. If only I could keep picking up words like this, picking up my voice and making a sound, and you would listen to my song like that. I don't even know exactly where my travel destination is. I'm just happy enough at this time to prepare for the trip. Because you already know that reaching your destination doesn't necessarily make you happy.
So, on this birthday, I'm going to light the lights again and make a wish.
May you always be with me on my journey without a destination.
May our unbounded journey be slow and long.
