There just something about 2NE1’s ballads that resonate with me far more than any other KPop or other group. I think it’s the theme of anger that’s absolutely evident in the lyrics, but isn’t always present in the tone of the song. The anger in “Missing You” is passive and lingering, almost deadening.
Another song along those lines that I’ve just been really enjoying: “The Worst” by Jhené Aiko. Similar lyrical concept. Same sense of passive, lingering anger.
I understand the feeling of defeat?
