A Pink’s Eunji is back with her second solo album, released on 10th of April 2017, and it is better than you expected. With her sweet and innocent style, she released a mini album called “The Space” and a music video for the song “The Spring”.
“The Spring” is a sweet, fresh song, talking about young love, and the singer’s feelings regarding love. The beat is slow and really relaxing and it makes you get into her story and have the same feelings as her. Eunji talks about how lonely she feels, now that Spring has come. Spring is also known as the season when the nature comes back to life, after the cold winter, and everything is reborn. It is also a season for new beginnings. Everything around her makes her feel lonely and sad: the nature, the city, the people.. She was hoping that with this new season, she could find love and nature could ” come into my frozen heart as well”. She is jealous that everyone around her is falling in love and that she is alone. The cherry blossoms that were supposed to make everyone happy, makes her depressed. It is an antithesis between the nature and her feelings. The nature is being reborn, but she feels without energy. It is a sad song with a sad message, being lonely on such a lovely time.
The second song called “First Farewell” is a featuring with the singer and songwriter, Kwak Jin Eon, winner of the Superstar K6 competition. The song is a duet between the girl and a boy talking about a lost love. They remember the beautiful times together, that they will never have again. They cannot forget the memories they had together, especially the first farewell they’ve been to. They cried, they laughed together, they share so many memories and they remember all the small details. But instead of getting closer they are growing apart, and they cannot go back to where they were. They think it is impossible to get back together and have the same relationship even though they still have the same feelings for each other. It is a sad song about a love that is impossible to have again.
The next song is called “First love” it is about, as the title says, her first love. It is as innocent as you can imagine. It is her first love from school and sweet and cute relationship. The beat for this song is more energetic and more suited for a dance, pop vibe. She remembers her feelings regarding her first love, how pure things used to be back then. She mentions small details about her wearing her uniform and backpack to school when she saw her crush. It seems like nature came back to life, at the same time with her feelings, the birds started to sing, the flowers blossomed, and everything was vibrant around her. She is describing a sweet innocent love, as we all had at a young age. When you feel like the whole world belongs to you and you are capable of doing anything.
The last song is called “Full Moon” and in my opinion is the saddest song of the album. The beat is really slow and you can actually feel Eunji’s emotions in this one. She sings with her heart and makes you understand her pain as you could actually feel it for yourself. The lyrics are extremely beautiful and talk about her missing someone. She calls him, under the moon, and hopes to reunite with him. It is also a song about an impossible love, as all of them, but this one brings more sadness into your soul than the others.
