But today, daddy is going to drink until morning. Bye-bye!”

Through the album ‘Boomerang,’ I wanted to share an interesting realization: in our lives, we constantly throw out boomerangs, which come back to us in various forms and times. So, I hope we can put more good things into our lives because they might come back to hurt us, help us, or reward us. Thanks to the production team of this album.”
