“MY TREASURE” by TREASURE
The lyrics of Treasure’s “My Treasure” song read sort of like the type of ‘put on a happy face’ tracks we’ve come to expect from male K-pop artists. Perhaps it is also premised in the harsh reality of the coronavirus pandemic, as we see the singer himself is caught up in the type of mood where he “wants to go back to the good times”.
But by and large, it appears as if the boys are singing to a female addressee, i.e. a romantic interest. And on top of encouraging her, once again, to cheer up, he is also assuring her there’s a brighter day in the future for both of them, together. So the titular “treasure” of the vocalist(s) would actually be said lady. And this is also one of the types of songs in which the singer puts forth his confidence in personally getting through these bad times, so long as the addressee stays by his side.
