Music Monday | ENHYPEN — Polaroid Love

Music Monday | ENHYPEN — Polaroid Love

Hihi friends!~ I’m finally back for another Music Monday post! Sorry, y’all. My schedule has been hella inconsistent and hectic cuz of all the traveling, work, and family stuff. As I said before, I’ll have a few more posts for y’all before I got on a bit of a hiatus to recharge~ Anyway, y’all know I try to do themes for my Music Monday posts. I’d been meaning to do spring Music Monday posts, but uhh…again…inconsistent schedule. Last time we did [Treasure’s ‘DARARI’]. This time, I’m recommending ENHYPEN’s ‘Polaroid Love’~ It’s a bright, soft, sweet, and happy song that really fits a blooming love in spring~

ENHYPEN (엔하이픈) is another one of those newer fourth-generation boygroups. So yeah, y’all know me… I’m not all that familiar with fourth-gen. However, I do like some of their songs. I’m just not as knowledgeable as compared to my first to third-gen groups. All I really previously knew, was that they competed on and were formed through I-Land. So we delving into this background info together haha. Anyway, ENHYPEN is a boyband under Belift Lab (aka Belift), which aia joint venture between CJ ENM and HYBE. If y’all didn’t know, HYBE (formerly Big Hit) is the label and company behind BTS and TXT. The group was formed through [I-Land], a 2020 survival competition show. Basically, 23 male trainees participated, and 7 went on to debut in ENHYPEN. These members include: Jungwon, Heesung, Jay, Jake, Sunghoon, Sunoo, and Ni-ki. The members are Korean (Jungwon, Heesung, Sunghoon, Sunoo), Korean-American (Jay), Korean-Australian (Jake), and Japanese (Ni-ki). Jungwon is the designated leader of the group. Also, I just learned that Sunghoon is a former figure skater? The name ENHYPEN comes from a mix of an en dash and a hyphen. Basically connecting the words to mean that the members will connect, discover each other, and grow together. They made their debut on November 30th, 2020 with the mini-album BORDER: DAY ONE and the title track [‘Given-Taken’]. Their official fandom is “ENGENE”. It’s a double meaning. First one is to be the “engines” that let the group grow and keep going. The second is that the fans are the group’s ‘gene’. Fans and ENHYPEN share the same DNA that allows them to connect, discover, and grow together.

Artist: ENHYPEN (엔하이픈)
Track: Polaroid Love
Album: Dimension: Answer
Genre: K-pop, EDM, Dance, Rock, R&B
Language: Korean
Release: February 2022

On to today’s Music Monday featured track! Again, my recommendation for today is ‘Polaroid Love’. It’s featured on Dimension: Answer, which is the repackage of their first album Dimension: Dilemna. It was released on January 10, 2022. There are two versions of the physical album: No and Yet. The digital version also has a different album cover as well. So you got a total of 3 album cover variations. I think ‘Polaroid Love’ is my favorite track on the album. Honestly, I think I vaguely listened to it when it first dropped. But I really got into it more because I guess it’s a popular track to use on TikTok and IG reels. The song is super cute. It’s very upbeat, sweet, light-hearted, and happy vibes. It’s just basically comparing this love to a polaroid in how it gives these warm, nostalgic, and happy vibes. It’s simple and needs no filter. Again, I think the sweet, warm, upbeat, and happy vibes really fits that blossoming spring love vibe. I don’t know. It just makes me happy and I find myself vibing to it. Literally just flailing my head, hands, and arms along as I listen to it right now. Aside from ‘Polaroid Love’, there are a couple of other tracks that I do like as well. ‘Go Big or Go Home’ is catchy with some 90’s/2000s house and dance club vibes. Parts of it also just remind me of like early to mid-2010s club tracks. Apparently, LDN Noise was one of the writers on the track too. They’re pretty into 90’s house and EDM sounds. So no surprise. They’ve worked with Nick Jonas, Chris Brown, and Nathan Sykes. They’ve also worked on tracks for K-Pop artists, mostly under SM Entertainment, like: f(x), EXO, Red Velvet, Taeyeon, and NCT. I was also digging “Upper Side Dreamin'”, as it has some R&B vibes in there. Although, no surprise…cuz apparently [TWLV] was one of the writers on it. He’s a K-R&B artist I like who has also collabed with Tiger JK (Drunken Tiger) and [BIBI]. I also liked ‘Tamed-Dashed’. Dunno why. I’m just really into it. It’s got a bit of a retro vibe to it with the synths. I also really liked ‘몰랐어 (Just a Little Bit’. It’s kind of a softer and slower-paced track that showcases the vocals more than the other tracks on the album. Also, fun fact: ‘Hitman’ Bang (aka Bang PD or Bang Si Hyuk) worked on just about every track as a writer or producer. If y’all don’t know who Bang PD is, he’s the founder and former CEO of Big Hit Entertainment, and now the chairman of HYBE. He’s a well-known producer and songwriter who partnered with Park Jin Young (JYP) of JYP Entertainment. He was one of the main producers and songwriters of JYPE before founding his own company. There, he brought together BTS and the rest is history. Anyway, lots of interesting tracks and sounds on this album. There was even a track with rock vibes. Although the previously mentioned tracks are my faves so far.

Performances & Lyrics

There’s no MV for ‘Polaroid Love’. However, there are several live performance vids~ So I drop all the things cuz this song too cute~ hehe~

Oooh~ Digging this live band version~
*watching in 2160p* I’m jelly of their perfect, poreless skin….

Again, it’s a cute, upbeat, sweet, light-hearted, and happy vibe kinda track. It’s comparing this love to a polaroid in how it gives these warm, nostalgic, and happy vibes. It’s not picture-perfect. It’s pretty simple and needs no filter. But, we love that vibe~

[Intro: Jake]
It’s like a polaroid love
Love, that old-fashioned feeling
But my heart is racing
Why am I like this?


[Verse 1: Jay, Sunghoon]
Why am I relying on to love?
It’s obvious feeling anyway
I believed I would know everything
I guess it as trap that I fell for even I knew it


[Pre-Chorus: Heeseung, Sunoo]
Unknowingly, when you call my name
Heartbreakingly, my heart is pounding
[Chorus: Jake, NI-KI, JungwonSunoo, *All*]
It’s like a polaroid love
Love, that old-fashioned feeling
But my heart is racing
Why am I like this?
It’s like a polaroid love
It’s not going my way

I don’t even have any trendy filter
But I love that vibe

*(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)*


[Verse 2: NI-KI, Jungwon]
Hеre is my heart for you
You have to еngrave it without correcting it later
It’s getting clearer
That this heart in the only one in the world


[Pre-Chorus: Jake, Sunghoon]
Unknowingly, when you call my name
Heartbreakingly, my heart is pounding


[Chorus: Heeseung, SunghoonJungwonJay, *All*]
It’s like a polaroid love
Love, that old-fashioned feeling
But my heart is racing
Why am I like this?


It’s like a polaroid love
It’s not going my way

I don’t even have any trendy filter
But I love that vibe


*(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)*
[Bridge: Jake, Sunoo]
Polaroid love
That old-fashioned feeling
Polaroid love
I love that vibe


[Pre-Chorus: Heeseung, Sunoo]
Unknowingly, when you call my name
Heartbreakingly, my heart is pounding


[Chorus: Jake, NI-KIJungwonSunoo, *All*]
It’s like a polaroid love
Love, that old-fashioned feeling
But my heart is racing
Why am I like this?
It’s like a polaroid love
It’s not going my way

I don’t even have any trendy filter
But I love that vibe

*(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)*
