In an interview with Weverse along with the song producer Bumzu, the two artists talked about their hit track.
However, the singer couldn’t express his love for finishing as there aren’t any good songs about fishing to listen to the highway in this generation. And if Army knows Jin closely then they know the urge Jin had to make a song on fishing. However, the urge just kept getting stronger. The singer wanted to make something for all the fishing fans and for everyone.
According To Jin, Creating ‘Super Tuna’ Was An Excuse To Go Fishing With Bumzu…
In a studio, many artists sat down and shared their thought on the song. However, all of them contributed to these most comfortable places.
Also, Jin wrote in his part while on the boat, the main reason behind doing that was he wanted to write the song while doing that activity! With Bumzu and Jin on a boat to write the song, obviously, they had all the other equipment like fishing rods and all.
Also, Bumzu said that he knew Tuna Fish is the idea behind the song. But the funny part or the ironic part is that the place they went to do finishing had no Tuna Fish. While joking around about how Jin could easily catch a Tuna and then Jin actually caught one. All the other fishermen around them were shocked, leaving Bumzu.
The lyrics of ‘Super Tuna’ go like “My heart is beating, flap-flap, Where did my fish go? East sea, west sea, Where is my fish? Please bite on my fishing rod, At that moment the tuna asked me, Hyung, Hyung, please take me”
