[some hearts are for two] is an album where the story of what happened when one world encountered another. It also portrays the process of the two worlds being reconciled to become one whole world. The making of this album started from a simple and arrogant emotion of wanting to console a loved one’s occasional gloom. Eventually, in the course of facing the loved one’s gloom with candor and trying to understand, it made me realize that it was better to share the feelings and take a step towards a bigger love instead of just saying comforting things. It was also an opportunity for me to face my own gloom in me. I have come to find out that depression was not an individual tendency. There was a world right around us, which made it difficult to live without a sense of depression. I wanted to express a message that we should carry on with our lives with love so big that the chaotic world outside our doors would be overshadowed, in order to pass on any comfort. Although I have mentioned the phrase “one whole world” beforehand, I hope that this album could reach the lives of loving each other, when no world can perfectly be whole.
