CREDITS


ケンチャナ ~大丈夫~ (Kenchana -Daijoubu-) 

Lyrics: Chiyoko Mori | Music: Hae-Joon Yoo | Arrangement: Tatsumi Yano

This is the A-side to Maeda’s 9th single, and her first single in the Korean-themed triple release.  

ケンチャナ (Kenchana) is the Japanese writing of the Korean word 괜찮아 (Gwaenchanha). It means the same as 大丈夫 (Daijoubu). So the title has both the Korean AND Japanese word for «I am Okay» in the title.

 

ソウルの雨 (SOURU no Ame)

Lyrics: Chiyoko Mori | Music: Hae-Joon Yoo | Arrangement: Tatsumi Yano

This is the B-side to Maeda’s 9th single.

ソウル is read as «souru», and can either mean Seoul (a city in South-Korea) or Soul. The lyricist probably had a double meaning when creating the title; The Rain in My Soul / The Rain in Seoul.
