Goodbye and good luck
It’s official. Jisun says goodbye to Loveholic.
The woman who fronted successful rock band Loveholic since its inception five years was sent off with tears and best wishes by the band and fans in a farewell-and-thank-you concert on the 27th. (Actually, there are two final concerts; the second and last takes place tonight, the 28th.)
Jisun managed to hold back her tears all throughout the concert, but finally burst into tears when bassist Lee Jae Hak brought out a letter.
Initially, she explained that she hadn’t prepared any special comments: “I don’t want it to give this a special meaning. I’d like to just treat this performance like a regular conversation.” But as they performed more and more of the songs spanning Loveholic’s career, she said solemnly, “I’ve been able to sing some truly great songs.”
After their last song, Lee Jae Hak took out the letter he’d written at the time of their very first concert, saying while holding back tears with difficulty, “I’m happy I can send you off with smiles.”
Jisun said at the end, with tears falling: “While I was in Loveholic, I came into my voice. I don’t know where we’ll be able to meet again, but if we do, please accept me warmly.” At a fan’s shout for an encore, she performed the song that had opened the concert, their first single, “Loveholic.”
She ended with: “Today, I didn’t cry that much. Tomorrow, I’ll cry my heart out” and thanked her fans.
SONG OF THE DAY
Loveholic – “다시 피운 꽃” (blooming flower). Literally, “a flower that blooms again.”
