When will my husband return from war? Answer: in two years. In the meantime, I will be the dramatic wife, blogging about his parting gift. You know, the one he conveniently released the day before he left.Now for the less delusional version of things!
Kyuhyun (Super Junior) released his 2nd single album ‘Goodbye for Now’ right before his mandatory military enlistment last May 25, 2017. SMTOWN dropped the MV for the title track the day before he left, which
reduced me to a crumbling heap of misery when I watched it in the office was a bittersweet experience for fans.
Unboxing: ‘Goodbye for Now’
I got my copy from CNA Philippines (the one in Cubao), after lying to myself, saying that I didn’t make the trip just to check if the album was there. The weather is great in the state of denial I’m in.
Inside: you’re bombarded with even more roses, which are too lovely by the way. The top print is actually one of the sixteen photo cards you get with the album.
It’s a lot of photo cards, you guys. What do you even do with these? I feel obliged to build an altar somehow. It even comes with a random photo card.
‘Goodbye for Now’ comes with four tracks:
- 다시 만나는 날 Goodbye for now – 4:33
- 이젠, 안녕 The Parting – 4:23
- Goodbye For Now (Chinese Version)
- 다시 만나는 날 Goodbye for now (instrumental)
The title track is a fitting farewell song. Lyrically, the piano ballad tells the story of a man and how he wants to reunite with a former love. Of course, it doubles as a dedication to his fans who are waiting for his return in 2019. Myself included.
