More About Wonho's 'Blue Letter'
In a short interview with NME, Wonho talked more about his recently released mini album.
According to Wonho, "Blue Letter" isn't directly connected to his previous mini-albums, the "Love Synonym" series. However, "Love Synonym Pt.1: Right for Me," "Love Synonym Pt.2: Right for Us," and "Blue Letter" all have the theme of love which he wanted to convey to his fans, Wenees.
He adds that whenever he looks at his fans, they remind him of the color blue. Hence, why he uses the color in his concepts and pictures as it has become his signature color.

"Blue is also a color that's able to best represent the emotions that I feel, so that's why I keep using it," said Wonho, referring to the popular expression "feeling blue," which means feeling sad or depressed.
However, Wonho wanted to give a double meaning to the expression, and instead of it meaning sadness or depression, he flips the meaning to "feeling loved" through "Blue Letter."
