BONUS TRACK:
Stocking (feat. Lydia) – 감옥에 갇히다 (Locked Up In Jail)
Genre: Pop Ballad
Posted Image
Album: Stocking digital single “Locked Up In Jail” Track 1
Comment: Stocking returns with the second single, “Locked Up in Jail” for the project album. The song was composed by Kim Doo Hyun who also wrote Lee Ji Hye’s “Were You Bored with Just One Girl” and Jang Nara’s “Tinkerbell.” The song is not about literally being locked up in jail but about being locked in the” jail of memories” after a breakup and not being able to escape from it. This sad tale shows a person not being able to see anything in front of them after leaving a loved one. (credits to motoway065 for translations)
