one way” (Hangul: 원 웨이) is the fourth track from the mini-album beauty&thebeat by LOONA’s third sub-unit, yyxy.

Description[edit | edit source]

“one way” actually is a track that has been kept aside for a long time to be used in a concept album titled LOOΠΔ the Ballad. LOOΠΔ the Ballad which will be released in May 2019, is an album composed of ballad songs with the best melodies among many common ballad numbers. “one way” is a sneak preview for what is to come, through the emotional expressions in the voices of LOOΠΔ/yyxy. Yves opens with a dry voice as if she is standing alone in the silent desert, Chuu fills up the space with her voice full of moisture. Go Won’s crunchy voice and Olivia Hye’s voice with the duality of day and night, gather to complete one music.[1]

“one way”는 본래 ‘LOOΠΔ the Ballad’라는 컨셉 음반을 위해 오랜시간 동안 이달의 소녀의 음악 라이브러리 안에서 아껴두었던 곡 중에 하나이다. 2019년 5월에 공개될 ‘LOOΠΔ the Ballad’는 흔하디 흔한 발라드 음악들 중에 가장 멜로디가 좋은 발라드만을 뽑아 완성될 앨범으로 one way를 통해 이달의 소녀 yyxy 만의 감정표현을 미리듣기 할 수 있다. 이브가 먼저 고독한 사막에 홀로 서 있는 듯한 메마른 목소리를 꺼내들면 수분기 가득한 가 목소리를 채우고, 고원의 바스락거리는 목소리와, 올리비아 혜만의 낮과 밤이 있는 목소리가 모여 비로소 하나의 음악을 완성한다.
