ミアネヨ ～ごめんなさい～ (Mianhaeyo -Gomen Nasai)
Lyrics: Chiyoko Mori | Music: Hae-Joon Yoo | Arrangement: Kouji Makaino
ミアネヨ (Miyaneyo) is the Japanese writing of the Korean word 미안 해요 (Mianhaeyo). It means the same as ごめんなさい (Gomen Nasai). So the title has both the Korean AND Japanese word for «I am Sorry» in the title.
Lyrics: Chiyoko Mori | Music: Hee-Joon You | Arrangement: Kouji Makaino
The Japanese word «Eien» is mis-spelled for poetic reasons. It should be 永遠 (eternity), but it is written 永縁. 縁 is «fate» or «destiny that two people meet, or get married». 永縁 might be a wish for the good match lasting forever.
