Multihyphenate Wonho has released his second mini album, Blue Letter. The new album, which compares isolation from the world during the pandemic to the blue ocean, is a sincere letter from Wonho showcasing his genuine, innermost thoughts and raw emotions. Find the album on Spotify and Apple Music.
Along with the album, he released the title track “Blue,” an upbeat pop song with a deeper meaning, presents a hopeful message through the use of “blue”–feeling blue and the blue ocean. This track is meant to quench the thirst of its listeners who’ve had strong emotions while being isolated this past year. With two versions of the song that are both in Korean and English, “Blue” will act as a light at the end of the tunnel. He tells Femina“…feeling blue means feeling depressed, right? I wanted to talk about feeling depressed and how it’s important to accept it as is and then seize it, when you can. I want to talk about that attitude through my title track, Blue. I want to say that you’re not alone if you ever feel blue or depressed.”
Wonho is further exploring his range of artistry on this album by showcasing his songwriting and producing skills throughout every single track. The seven tracks provide the listener with fantasies to help resolve their sense of loss that they may go through living their repetitive daily lives. Blue Letter touches upon different themes including “youth” and “consolation.” The first track of the album, “Intro: Seasons and Patterns,” which compares the blue waves to passing time, introduces the prelude for the rest of the tracks. The beautiful yet sad “No Text No Call” is followed by “Come Over Tonight” and “24/7”; while they all sing the melancholic change of moods that are on the border of joy and sorrow. “Stranger,” which is made up of soft vocals alongside an acoustic guitar, that reveals Wonho’s wish to meet with his fans in person.
