Victoria Day long weekend was off to a swell start with summery temperatures, rendering it the ideal time for trail exploring - while maintaining physical distance requirements, of course. And for those that relish in A/C-prevalent environments or find barbecue grills foreign (me), oven baked hot dogs and orange-Ribena bubbles are the way to go.
Featured above and below are my spontaneous servings of Matcha Green Mandarin Ade and a Matcha Beet Latte, which was admittedly not as foamy as I would have liked.
Spotted amidst a rainy journey to P.A.T. was Yoo Ji Tae, the lead for 화양연화.
I'm in Trouble - Repetitive and catchy, as title tracks should be, I'm in Trouble was a fairly familiar concept executed with unconventional visuals; personally, the choreography and styling speaks louder than the song itself.
Firework - Jinyoung's Firework will always be the first to surface in response to this keyword. The message conveyed is remotely analogous, though NU'EST's edition possesses a groovier beat with more distinctive buildup. Instead of "Feels like a firework" - the single most frequent English verse - the line found most memorable was the clever "One two 셋".
Must - I predicted this to be a fan song from the start. Coherent with the theme of the album, the lyrics describe one's thoughts while restless at night, swarmed with feelings of appreciation and sentimental afterthoughts. Ultimately, the Korean title of "꼭" makes more sense than "Must", in my humble opinion.
Shooting Star - Upbeat vibes give off the impression of a rookie group production (think Produce 101 signatures), or an anthem of hope and empowerment. The underlying message is of encouragement, making it suitable for intense exercise routines or exam-cramming sessions alike (and maybe even road trips across wildlife-bearing pastures).
