iKON released their second lyric narration video for their title song Goodbye Road. Video features Hanbin and June reciting lyrics at what looks an abandoned industrial dock or a shipyard. Video can be viewed on iKON’s YouTube account (English subtitles are not yet available).
However you can enjoy lyrics translation provided by iKONICS.
On the heels of the track list release for the New Kids: the Final mini album, iKON released the first lyric narration video for Goodbye Road featuring Jinhwan and Donghyuk looking pensive and gorgeous. We can look forward to videos of other members revealing more about the song.
You can enjoy the video with English subtitles on iKON YouTube Chanel.
Jinhwan: “If you’re going to leave anyway, live the best possible life with no regrets. Leave me and live happily.”
Donghyuk: “Everyone goes through a break up so let’s not be too sad. I’ll try to find someone that is alike but not quite similar to you.”
Looking at lyrics it seems that non-toxic breakup songs are becoming iKON’s signature. Love comes to an end but there is no blaming of the person that left, accepting the end of love as part of life and growing up. A healthy message for sure.
This is the third comeback for iKON in 2018 but it is already a standout by the quality and timeliness of its teasers. iKON is present in the media and on variety shows prior to the release itself and not 10 days to two weeks after its release (if at all) , which was the usual practice before. One has to be blind not to notice the difference in the approach to iKON promotions and the quality of the same. We do not know what happened to bring about this change but we sure welcome it.
