Hey Jen, I heard How Would You feel has "Paean" in the title because it's Cherry's middle name but I looked it up and it means "song of praise" so is it named after her or not? Just wondering because I thought it could be the type of song. I thought you would know. Thank you for your blog!

Hello! I believe How Would You Feel could be classified as a paean if you wanted to call it one – which I think Ed did – but it is also his girlfriend’s middle name. So since the song is about her, the word is working two different ways in the title. 

…You don’t understand how long I just spent going through my Ed video folder to find his quote about this, haha! But here you go. This is what he said: 

The reason I called it paean… A paean is a song of praise, if you google it. But uh, Paean is also my girlfriend’s middle name, that she has had the piss taken out of her for so many years with. And uh, there was just part of me that was just like, everyone rips into her for it, so I thought I’d put it as a song title that would be a hit, and now it’s suddenly a cool thing. In my mind. I hope so, anyway. 

So there you have it! If anyone thinks “paean” is a cool thing now, it’s because of Ed. :)  Thank you for your question!

I've been thinking, if zico is only 24, international age, then doesn't that mean he was only about 17 or so when he debuted with block b. Bc if so he must have really started off early in the underground scene to gain that much recognition :0

He was 18 when Block B debuted. He was born September 1992 and Block B debuted in April 2011. So he was going on 19 but it wasn’t his birthday yet. 

In 2009 he joined Stardom which he was 16/17 at the time. But the reason why he was there was because of his underground stuff which means he was most likely doing it for about 2 years or so. Making him about 14 when Nacseo was born. You can hear the puberty if you listen to his mixtapes.

My Favorite Books 1/ | To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

“When someone’s been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it’s like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you’re just clutching air and grit. That’s why you can’t save it all up like that.

Because by the time you finally see each other, you’re catching up only on the big things, because it’s too much bother to tell about the little things. But the little things are what make up life.”

If you were a song I would learn every beat, know the lyrics by heart, let the melody flow through my veins and listen to it every night. If you were a song it would be my favorite
