Additionally, he revealed that “Down to Earth” was partially motivated by a trying moment in his life when he finished his conscription in 2018. Though he felt cut off from the outside world, he soon discovered comfort in running. He thought about the beauty that comes before darkness one day as he watched the sunset.
“Sunsets are met only with the night sky — not a new morning, but a dark night,” he claimed to have thought at the time. Because there is nothing that can be done at this moment, she remarked, “Let me be true to myself and focus on the little things during this time.”
Additionally, Taeyang mentioned how proud he is of Lisa and how he even attended her YG Entertainment audition. He said to Rolling Stone that the song’s title, “Shoong!” is an onomatopoeic pun. He also explained that it is frequently used in Korean to describe cars passing by. In the song, the sound is repeated. Because the song makes reference to a Lamborghini, we incorporated the racing theme artistically.
