^ First I wanna say, HI REI!!!!!! (I still get excited whenever I see you appear
About Zeze, it's certainly weird to read about the lyrics. I agree she probably didn't mean to make it negative, but I did wonder why she sang "Climb on Me" in the song. Then watching this with the English subs was illuminating.
I didn't know of the book the character Zeze came from, so at first I thought it was just a weird coincidence, until IU responded saying she likes the book. I guess it's just a matter of confusion artist intent and audience interpretation. I'm not bent out of shape over this. Zeze might be my favorite song from the new album, controversy or not.
