“HAVE A GOOD DAY” is a track off of WINNER‘s album Everyday that was written and produced by Mino, and it turns out that he wrote the song for his childhood friend, EunB from Ladies’ Code. EunB and Mino were close friends after attending the same high school together.
EunB passed away in 2014 after a fatal car crash that also took the life of her fellow member RiSe.
Mino released the track in Japan first, and while many fans heard the song in Japanese before, this is the first time it has been officially released in Korea with Korean lyrics. At a concert in Japan, Mino stated he wrote the song for a friend whom he had lost.
While Mino does not mention EunB specifically, fans believe the song’s lyrics allude to her.
Fans interpret the “two kisses” to refer to the track “Kiss Kiss” that Ladies’ Code was promoting at the time of the accident, and “the pitch black of a rainy night” to mean the night of the accident when it was, indeed, raining.
Other lyrics like “Though you’re far away, don’t be lonely. I’ll be with you” and “If I knew that would be the last, I would have said goodbye” are breaking hearts of both WINNER and Ladies’ Code’s fans.
This isn’t the first time Mino expressed his sorrow after losing his dear friend. He once arranged his playlist to send a hidden message: “I’m Fine Thank You, I love you and remember you, EunB.”
The first song is “I’m Fine Thank You” by Ladies’ Code, followed by an arrangement of song titles making a hidden code for EunB.
