Hwang Chi Yeul uses his voice to answer, just how far can “The Farthest Distance” be?
Part of the chorus of “The Farthest Distance” is revealed for the first time –
“世上最远的距离 The world’s furthest distance / 是你我在一起 is when you and I are together / 在一起却不知我心意 together but you do not know how I feel / 世上最远的距离 The world’s furthest distance / 是你我的分离 is our separation / 像暗夜白天遥望着叹息 almost like peering and sighing into the days and nights.”
The beautiful lyrics, coupled with Hwang Chi Yeul’s perfect vocals, unconditionally displayed the image of a man who loves deeply, but never utters a word of his true feelings. While recording for “The Farthest Distance”, Hwang Chi Yeul frankly revealed,
“The content and emotions of the song is very similar to my past experience, I could even feel in detail the sentimental aspects of the song. I hope that my voice can interpret those feelings of a love that can neither be desired nor expressed”.
