Stranger, or 이방인 (romanised: Ibang-in), is the title track from Guckkasten’s second EP of the same title. It was released on 15 November. That was not the first time the song was heard in public though; back in July 2017, Guckkasten performed the song for the first time at their Squall concerts in Seoul.
I was again reminded of this song recently when I saw a clip of their performance on Onstage Plus – as usual, a tight performance from Guckkasten (complemented with a beautiful stage setup).
Super Junior will be holding their Super Show 7 concert in Singapore on 27 January 2018 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Singapore will be their first overseas stop after their concerts in Seoul on 15 to 17 December.
It seemed so long ago that Super Junior had any new release. The last one was their 10th anniversary special album, “Devil“, back in July 2015. Finally, they will be making a comeback with their new album, “PLAY“, on 6 November 2017, their debut anniversary.
Prior to the album release, they revealed a pre-release track on 30 October, a ballad written by Donghae called 비처럼 가지마요 (romanised: Bicheoreom Gajimayo; translated: Don’t Go Away Like the Rain).
I love the message of positivity in the song, Gift. It is a track in Park Hyo Shin’s sixth album, “Gift: Part 1”, the first of a two-part release in 2009 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his debut.
The song is a gift from Park Hyo Shin to his fans, and he co-composed the music and lyrics.
