Written and composed by Junny, “HIDE & SICK” is an addicting track. On first listen, it may seem upbeat with a feel-good aura. But on closer listen, the heavier, more somber lyrics seep out. 

Throughout the music video, Junny is having a one-man party and seems to be having the time of his life. But he uses this video to showcase feelings of loneliness and longing for friendship. He starts the song singing, “Again, hide & seek / I wonder who will find me / I’m sure there will be someone / I’m beginning to get nervous.” Cleverly using the widely known game of hide-and-seek, Junny uses it to express the pain and hurt one feels when playing alone. 

In the chorus he sings, “I wish I could be never alone! / I’m tired of being so lonely / I know that you won’t understand but / I wish I could be never alone!” which furthers his longing to have friends. On Arirang Radio Music Access, Junny explained that the song encompasses his past relationships and feeling like an outsider.
