Akdong Musician’s Lee Chan Hyuk has revealed the inspiration for their new mini album entitled “Spring,” which can also be translated as “Puberty.”
On May 5, Lee Chan Hyuk and Lee Soo Hyun performed on an outdoor stage in Seoul Forest, where they also talked about their songs.
Lee Chan Hyuk stated that many of his lyrics were inspired by watching his sister Lee Soo Hyun go through puberty during their two-year hiatus.
When Lee Soo Hyun denied her brother’s claim, Lee Chan Hyuk quipped, “They say people going through puberty don’t realize it themselves.”
Lee Soo Hyun eventually admitted to it and added, “I am nevertheless grateful for being your muse.”
“Spring” came out on May 4, and covers a variety of themes, such as the experience of curiosity about the world, excitement over love and dreams, and self-consciousness. The mini album aims to capture not only the sentiments of teenagers, but also the inner adolescence of people of all ages.
