Some people prefer healing on their own—figuring out their emotions and untangling their thoughts by themselves. But allow me to send you a few companions in the form of a song. In their melodies, I hope you find the gentleness your heart is seeking.

HOLO by Lee Hi

“Whether being alone or together, the loneliness feels the same, one day, it will stop.”

HOLO is a Korean word that means alone. In Hangul, it is written as 홀로 (hol-lo).

There are times that the sadness or the anxiety does not diminish even when you try to spend more time with the people you love, or when you try new things like taking walks under the warm sunlight. In this song, you can relate to that experience.

HOLO is a declaration, a reminder, a reassurance, and a promise. A declaration that you will gradually break out of the cycle of loneliness and restlessness. A reminder that you are too precious to remain chained in that cycle. A reassurance that it is okay to remove the cover of your heart and be your authentic self. A promise that you will take better care of yourself.

everythingoes by RM featuring NELL

“It shall pass someday, surely, without a doubt.”

The English title of this song is stylized as everythingoes. In Korean, its title is 지나가 (ji-na-ga), which translates to it shall pass.

everythingoes feels like a warm hug that mends. Instead of trying to cheer you up, it makes you feel heard—as if someone is acknowledging your hardships.

Like what Cheryl Richardson, an American coach and New York Times best-selling author said, “People start to heal the moment they feel heard.”

Throughout the track, the lines “it shall pass” and “everything, everything, everything goes” are repeated several times. It is like an earnest hope or an absolute promise that whatever you are going through will end.

Love poem by IU

“Open your ears for just a moment, I'll sing for you, who is walking through an especially long night.”

Love poem is a gentle lullaby for a tired soul and a hurting heart. As its lyrics convey, the song hopes to help you eventually walk and love again.

You will hear the phrase "I'll be there" at the beginning of this track's chorus. It is followed by Korean lyrics that mean "behind you when you walk alone." It gives you the assurance that you are not alone in this long and tiring night that seems to be endless.

Love poem does not promise a tomorrow that is full of sunshine, but it reassures that you will not be alone until the very end—until you gain the strength to stand up and open your heart again. This is also evident with how the song tenderly ends with the line “on the day your long night is over, when you lift your head, I’ll be right there.”

Your Dog Loves You by Colde featuring Crush

"If I'm born again, I'll hug you first, I promise."

This track has a slow and mellow melody which creates a serene atmosphere. It also has lots of soft whistling, light vocalizations, and pleasant harmonies. Perhaps this is how warmth and fondness would sound like.

Your Dog Loves You reminds you of the pure happiness you can get from appreciating and enjoying the little things with your beloved furry friend. If all else fails, simple things such as booping their nose, squishing their jelly bean toes, or rubbing their chunky belly can surely make your heart feel full again.

I by TAEYEON featuring Verbal Jint

“Fly as if I’m dreaming, my life is a beauty.”

I is a song that will make you feel like you are the main character—a character who has gone through countless hardships and shed tears numerous times but is still courageous and hopeful aplenty.

While soaring through life, it is inevitable to fall down sometimes. It may also happen again a couple more times. This song encourages you to see your hardships as motivation to rise again and fly even higher.

This song also hopes you realize that there is beauty that belongs only to you and no one else.

Just like us, artists are also humans—strong yet feeble. Despite this, they gifted us with songs that we can use in healing. Hold onto the ones where your heart connected.

With these new companions, I wish you well on your journey towards healing.

Create a new playlist on Spotify, add these songs in, and bask in reassurance whenever you need to. You can also check out the Spotify playlist Dalkom Cafe for more chill Korean tunes that are perfect to listen to as you enjoy a cup of coffee.
