SEVENTEEN — HOME;RUN (video)
SEVENTEEN’s new album ‘; [Semicolon]’ is an album where they share the encouraging message for the ‘youth’ like they did in their 7th mini album ‘Heng:garæ’ and also the positive message that ‘we should all take a break and enjoy the youth’ with the youth that are running towards their goals without any breaks.
‘Semicolon,’ which is a punctuation mark used when you pause a sentence and then resume again, is used as a metaphor to portray the ‘time to take a breath’ and ‘time to laugh and enjoy together.’ “SEVENTEEN,” as the youth who are living in the same time period as the other youth who are fighting alone and struggling through their lives, uses this metaphor to convey their hopeful and empathic message through the album to comfort and cheer for the youth.
The title song ‘HOME;RUN’ is a song based on swing genre where the retro-like sound stands out, and it portrays the excitement that the phrase ‘HOME RUN’ conveys with cheerful and rhythmical sound. It conveys powerful support and comfort to the youth with limitless potentials.
