“Panorama” by IZ*ONE
IZ*ONE’s “Panorama” reads like a love song, although there aren’t any overt references to romances. Rather the wording comes off more like a puppy-love type of scenario, although they can also be interpreted as relating to a very-close, platonic friendship between the singer and addressee. And the title, a term derived from the field of photography, is an expression of the singer’s desire to capture, as in value and also remember, this special moment of time with the addressee. Indeed she feels that the bond the two of them have developed, even if they are separated, will last throughout time.
The writers of “Panorama” are as follows:
- Kang Bee Oh-
The trio above also co-produced the song in conjunction with the trio below:
- Ji Y. Joon
Music labels Swing Entertainment and Off the Record released “Panorama” on the 7th of December, 2020. It is one of six tracks on IZ*ONE’s EP, which also came out that day, entitled “One-Reeler, Act IV”.
