Abyss (Jin)

Produced by BUMZU
Written by BUMZU, Jin, RM, Pdogg

This track was released two hours before Jin’s birthday. Below is his note, translated.

Hello, this is Jin.
Recently, during a press conference, there was a time when I said,
“I don’t want to share my sad emotions with the fans because I’d only want to show them good things.
However, when it comes to music, it’s a different story. Although I don’t want to share [such emotions] through my actions, I think it’d be okay to show the fans [such emotions] through music.”

To be honest, I experienced a major burnout lately, and I think it’s because I had many thoughts about myself that I [said such a thing].
Achieving No.1 on Billboard Hot 100, getting congratulated by many people — but am I someone who can receive all these..
There are many who love music more than I do, who are better with music more than I am — but is it okay that I get to have this joy and receive these congratulations..
Those were the thought I had, and the deeper I was submerged in thoughts, the more painful it felt, and that’s why I think I wanted to just put everything down.
I also got counseling on this and made it through each day. I then talked with Bang PD-nim, and he suggested writing a song on this emotion.
To him I said, “I’m not confident to do a good job, and what if the outcome is not good when I’m already at a position where I shouldn’t [fail]..”
And Band PD-nim said, “Such things are not important. But if you give it a try, you’ll surely do a good job. I’ll look for someone who has a good fit for you.”
So that’s how I met the songwriter Kye Beomju hyungnim, and I shared with him my current emotions and many other things..
He’s a lighthearted, positive person. He said he wanted to help me, and brightened me up with his positive energy, saying, “let’s write about many anxieties~ We can always try again if it doesn’t quite work.”

So we talked on many things, he made a track out of my emotions on the spot, I wrote down what I wanted to say, and Abyss was complete. I’d like to say thank you to Kye Beomju hyungnim once again.

It’s a bit gloomy song that doesn’t suit ‘birthday,’ but I thought it’d be awkward to release this on another day other than my birthday, so I decided to release Abyss [on my birthday].
ARMYs, please enjoy this song even if it might be lacking.

ps. To our leader-nim who wrote the lyrics of the chorus, thank you.

숨을 참고서 나의 바다로 들어간다 간다
With my breath held, I walk into my sea, I walk into it

아름답고도 슬피 우는 나를 마주한다
I face myself who is crying beautifully and sorrowfully

 

저 어둠 속의 날
Myself in that darkness —

찾아가 말하고 싶어
I’d like to go find him and tell him

오늘은 널 더 알고 싶다고 yeah
that I’d like to know more about you today, yeah

 

아직도 나는 내게 머물러있다
Still, I remain with myself

목소린 나오질 않고 맴돌고만 있다
With my voice unable to come out, I just circle around him

저 까만 곳
That dark place,

잠기고 싶어 가보고 싶어
I’d like to be submerged in it, I’d like to go to it

I’ll be there

오늘도 또 너의 주위를 맴돈다
Today as well, I circle around you again

 

너에게 갈수록 숨이 차오르고 넌 더 멀어지는 것 같아
The closer I get to you, the more breathless I become and the farther away you feel

더 깊은 바다로 들어간 건 아닐까 yeah
Wouldn’t it be that you went deeper into the sea, yeah

 

저 바닷속의 날
Myself in that sea —

찾아가 말하고 싶어
I’d like to go find him and tell him

오늘은 널 더 알고 싶다고 yeah
that I’d like to know more about you today, yeah

 

아직도 나는 내게 머물러있다
Still, I remain with myself

목소린 나오질 않고 맴돌고만 있다
With my voice unable to come out, I just circle around him

저 까만 곳
That dark place,

잠기고 싶어 가보고 싶어
I’d like to be submerged in it, I’d like to go to it

I’ll be there

오늘도 이렇게 너의 곁으로 눈을 감는다
Today as well, like this, I close my eyes to get to you
