불 끄고 누워서
네 생각에 잠겨
Lonely and tired
I turn off the lights and lay down
Lose myself in thoughts of you
How much longer will you stay hurt?
I don’t know either
—— Translation by @softboimino on Twitter
"Sunrise" is the penultimate song in the album "Take" released by Mino on October 31 this year. It may be the echo of the sixth song "Daylight" in this album. When autumn is approaching, a pair of lovers fall in love in "Daylight", and the beloved woman is like "a ray of light that never fades."
The day's natural light becomes dark at night, and the sunrise begins to welcome a new day of daylight. However, a new day embraces a new story, you are no longer by my side. The sun spilled into the hut, a lonely and tired person got up and turned off the lights that had been turned on all night, then continued to lie back on the icy and chilling bed. Our scenes involuntarily come to mind. The person, like the mechanical lamp without emotions beside the bed, also did not sleep all night.
The refreshing Ukulele introduces "Sunrise" and also welcomes Mino's decadent and powerful voice. How many new days have started in such a sunrise? The sun gradually rises, the sunlight gradually shines. It is still a simple chord, but the rhythm pattern becomes more complicated; it is a single tone presented by the synthesizer keyboard, but it lingers brains with a chorus, which allows the fragmented memories of us spontaneously come to mind. "She is the sunrise, my rise..." I tossed and turned and told myself not to think about it anymore, but I can't forget her, can't forget the sunrise, and can't forget the sunrise I saw with her. Another person in my inner world said helplessly: "Everything to me, baby, you are everything to me." With the reverberating background strings and bass, Picture after picture, thoughts afterthoughts, it seems about to bomb my brain just like the impact of high hertz and low hertz. Gradually, gradually, the gradually dissipating melody told me that sunset comes and it's time to fall asleep...
”Sunrise," this is the sunrise in my mind. What scenes have you thought of at your sunrise?
“I was right! Just by listening to the sample teaser, I immediately love Sunrise and Lost in a crowd.”
“Make me wanna wake up early and enjoy with coffee.”
“제목은 sunrise이지만 해질 때 들으면 감동이 2배인 느낌
The title is sunrise, but when you hear it at sunset, it feels twice as impressive.”
In such a season where I can't afford it, I still plan to plant a sunflower and give it to you before the sun rises next year.”

About the Curator: Chenying Sun
Hi, my name is Chenying Sun, you can also call me Lucky like my friends. I was born and grew up in Chongqing, a megacity in China, and inherited the typical straightforward, enthusiastic, and uprighting character here. If you want to discuss any aspect of music with me, I will have dialogues with you very enthusiastically.
I have a long history of interest and learning experience in music performance and creation. Thanks to my professional training in traditional Chinese music instruments Guzheng and Guqin since 4 years old, I have a deep research on traditional Chinese music. Besides, I'm proficient in performing various musical instruments such as piano, guitar, ukulele, and harmonica. The extensive enthusiasm for music also inspired me to create musical works as a singer-songwriter.
In short, I have a diverse passion for both classical and contemporary music genres including pop, K-pop, R&B, Hip-hop, etc. Among them, the one that resonates most with my soul is K-pop, which is the primary factor that prompts me to be the first curator of the K-pop playlist at Musicto. I entered the K-pop community because of Wanna One. Although the group has disbanded now, I still remember their songs and their shining performance on stage, and crazy about everything about K-pop. I extremely desire to share all the K-pop songs soothed my life with massive K-pop fans, hence I became the playlist curator of "Music to Soothe K-pop."
Looking forward to chatting with K-pop families. Also, please feel free to have talks with me about various music genres, contact me on Instagram!
