온앤오프 ONF Busking Diary Part 1

ONF Busking Diary has been released. It was a sweet serenade under the night sky.🌙⭐💕 The boys seemed to have enjoyed it a lot too.😊 ありがとう。💕

The first episode focused on the vocal line. There was a short preview that the next episode will be time to highlight the dance line. I’m looking forward to it! What has been revealed so far is that Laun, J-US and U will do a girl group cover. I was squealing inside whenever I got a glimpse of U on screen. I really think I’ll get a heart attack if I go see him live. めっちゃ好きやねん!💕

It’s nice to see them perform their cover of Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror again. It’s great to hear them sing in English once in a while because it makes them feel nearer to international fans. It’s hard to articulate it in English but in Japanese they have this expression “気持ちを届け” kimochi wo todoke, which means ‘to convey one’s feelings’ or ‘to have one’s feelings reach another person’. I think it’s like that. Well, music is a language. Dance is a language too. This is why we can like foreign artists who don’t even speak our local language. However, when they do sing in a language you understand, their feelings reach you more easily, more directly.

It must be frustrating for them too to not be able to communicate with all of their fans more naturally especially their international fans because of the language barrier but I know they are working hard. They learned Japanese to debut in Japan. I’m sure they’ll try to learn some English too to be able to promote to a wider global audience in the future. We’ll just have to continue supporting them and cheering them on until they can eventually draw nearer to us.
