K-pop Band BLANK2Y Dishes on Their Debut With K2Y I : CONFIDENCE [Thumbs Up]

We're always keeping our ears open and looking to discover the latest and greatest in K-pop, and we've found something really special in the new group BLANK2Y.

After introducing themselves to the world in March with a reality show, they soon went viral with covers of NCT127, THEBOYZ and more before releasing their debut mini-album, K2Y I : CONFIDENCE [Thumbs Up] today. We just had to learn more about these guys and got the chance to chat with them all about what their first three incredible songs mean to them.

MIKEY: "[Thumbs Up]" can show our confidence by claiming we're unique. It fits our confidence as a new group.

LOUIS: One of our goals is topping the charts, and I think "[Thumbs Up]" really expresses our goal and confidence.

What '[Thumbs Up]' Means

SUNGJUN: It means that we're the best, and actually we could really gain confidence while working on this album thanks to this track.

LOUIS: "[Thumbs Up]" delivers a message of BLANK2Y is the best, and that's what we aim to achieve as a group. And there's a belief or saying that the artist and the song title go together, so we gain confidence by believing that we'll be No. 1 and everyone will give us a "thumbs up."

BLANK2Y's Favorite '[Thumbs Up]' Lyrics

SUNGJUN: "We go, we go, when we step out no one can stop us, way back." I like this lyric because it represents BLANK2Y stepping out into the world confidently.

MIKEY: "Thumbs up." This is my favorite line because not only it is a song title but also it explains our message of being the best in a simple yet strong way.

DK: "Put your thumbs up, don't let them down, put your thumbs up." I want everyone to put their thumbs up when they see our performance.

SODAM: "We go, we go, when we step out no one can stop us, way back." This line shows our ambitious side as a team.

LOUIS: "We go thumbs Up." This is my part, so I think I'm attached to it.

U: "Thumbs up, thumbs up, put your thumbs up way up, pum pum pum." This part contains what our title track wants to deliver. Also, the song gets really hyped up starting from this part.

'[TOUCH]'

MIKEY: "[Touch]" can show a new side of BLANK2Y because it has a different sound from our title track.

DK: With lighter sounds and vibes than "[Thumbs Up]," this track can satisfy our fans and their ears.

 

What '[TOUCH]' Means

YOUNGBIN: It means that we will "touch" fans who are tired from COVID-19 with touching emotions.

BLANK2Y's Favorite '[TOUCH]' Lyrics

SUNGJUN: "I don't care if this is cheesy, like a fool I think of you every day just like teenager." I think it's really cute to think of someone all the time.

MIKEY: "It makes me born again." This line expresses the feeling of being fluttered in love in a unique way.

DK: "Every moment, everything is new, you wake me up." I finally got to debut and live a new life as BLANK2Y's DK, so I can really relate to this line.

DONGHYUK: "Your TOUCH, it makes me born again." This line sends a message to our fans; without our fans, BLANK2Y doesn't mean anything so please stay with BLANK2Y.

SODAM: "Your TOUCH, it makes me born again." This is a main part of the song, and also I think this lyric fits the song the best.

LOUIS: "Heaven, with you I'll follow anywhere." I like this lyric because we'll always be with K2YWE, and wherever we're with K2YWE it'll be like heaven.

U: "Your TOUCH." This is where lyric and performance blends very well in the song.

YOUNGBIN: "Heaven, with you I'll follow anywhere." This line shows trust and dedication, and that's what I want to build with K2YWE.

SIWOO: "Please stop now and knock the world girl." This part's beat is really my style, and the song's vibe is very well presented in this part. It's also my part!

BLANK2Y's Favorite '[Constellation]' Lyrics

SUNGJUN: "You stared at me, who is like a fool." Even though I'm still immature and not good enough, fans still care for me, and I want to say thank you to those fans.

MIKEY: "Unconsciously I looked at the sky and it asked me, 'Do you have a shining dream in your little hands?'" I would stare at the sky when I listen to this part. I get very impressed with this part's lyrics and melody.

DK: "I won't let you go forever, I'll walk with you always." I want to walk with K2YWE, holding their hands and side by side, for a very long time.

DONGHYUK: "We don't need words, I promise now, just stay with me." This is what BLANK2Y wants to say to our fans right now.

SODAM: "We don't need words, I promise now, just stay with me." I like this part because I want K2YWE to stay with BLANK2Y for a long time.

LOUIS: "Just stay with me." It can mean a lot of things, but I want to say to our K2YWE that all we ask is for them to stay with us.

U: "Unconsciously I looked at the sky and it asked me." It's the beginning part of the song so this is the first line I hear when I listen to the song. Every time I listen to it, I get amazed because it's so beautiful.

YOUNGBIN: "I'll walk with you side by side, I'll always shine for you." The message of walking together really soothes me. In addition, this is my part so singing this line really comforts me.

SIWOO: "Just stay with me." I think this line describes our message to the fans the best in "[Constellation]."
