Teenager

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

A single photo could talk a thousand words. It’s a reflection of our lives. Taking a look at our past photo, even just one, could bring back a thousand memories. The Remembered and The Forgotten, a single photo could bring them all in our minds all over again. And it’s fascinating how a long time has passed, how we’ve grown up from a little baby to an adult, and many thoughts suddenly come up; like how we get into where we are now, and what we’ve been through so far. L.M. Montgomery, in the book “Anne of Green Gables”, wrote that there are so many things to be thought over and decided when you’re beginning to grow up. It keeps us busy all the time thinking them over and deciding what’s right. It’s a serious thing to grow up, isn't it?

I’ve changed as much as the time that has passed like a faded photo. I can’t go back to those times but I want to find that feeling.” –Jung Joon Young, Teenager

Let’s celebrate those memories that we have while boosting up the mood with Jung Joon Young’s hits titled “Teenager”. The young rocker had a comeback with his second mini album, which had a same name with its title song. It was released on June 26th 2014. This time, Jung composed and produced all of the songs in the album, as well as making the concept on his own.
“Teenager” is a song about self-reflection. When people grow up, without realizing, sometimes they forget who they used to be, because of the unavoidable changing and pressure we face while we’re getting older. “The worn out notebook, the flung away backpack, the dirty Converse, the faded doodles on the desk, there goes a young child who used to dream. I keep staring at the clock and I find those jokes are no use anymore. During these days like the hot summer, will I be able to smile?” They say that children are warm, and adults are cold. Well, being old is a destiny, yet being mature is a choice. And being mature isn’t mean that we have to be cold. Instead, being mature is keeping the warmth feeling of a child while having the attitude and thinking as an adult. “As I look at myself, learning things one by one and adjusting. I ask my friend and he says that it’s all just a part of life. The clock just keeps going faster and I can’t laugh at jokes anymore. As I’m getting colder, will I be able to smile again?” Even though we’re not a teenager anymore, it’s never too late to start working on our unrealized dreams. There’s always pressure to grow up , it’s unavoidable in a sense, but we can choose to grow up into our own version of a responsible and happy adult.
As we know, Jung Joon Young is a free-spirited young rocker who says and does whatever he wants. And through this song, “Teenager”, his true personality is showed up; smells like a teen spirit! At the same time, it depicts Jung’s self-reflection towards his own life, and his positivity in looking towards his own future. It shows that he has grown both in musicality and maturity. Rock n’ roll, Jung!

I have grown tall and bigger, but my heart is still a teenager. Even if other hurdles come to see me, I will overcome, and I will smile.” –Jung Joon Young, Teenager
