Regarding the song titles from her album, Wendy revealed why she chose to debut with two title tracks; “Like Water” and “When This Rain Stops”!

“When This Rain Stops” is a song for people who are going through a tough time, while “Like Water” is about hope and gratitude. They are both warm songs, but the temperature of those warmths are somehow different.

She described “Like Water” to be a song about people supporting each other and filling each other up, just like water.

This is a song about how like water, we need each other and are beings that fill each other up. I wanted this message to be included in the album from the preparation stage and the producers put the exact line in. I’m really thankful for that.

And through “When This Rain Stops”, Wendy hopes to bring some comfort, as well as express her gratitude to Reveluvs who waited for her to return patiently!

Since the lyrics include my own story, I’m really affectionate about the song. My fans had to wait for a long time (but) they showed so much love and support. I chose this as one of the main tracks, hoping to share the comfort I got from them and show my gratitude.
