Koi no yokan

Koi No Yokan is a truly beautiful concept. It can be defined as the sense one can have upon first meeting another person that the two of them are going to fall in love. In other words, it is the knowledge one has that he/she is going to fall in love with another person. This differs from the idea “love at first sight” in that it does not imply that the feeling of love exists, rather it refers to the knowledge that a future love is inevitable.

I decided to be kind to myself this morning and listened to the new singles from Deftones' upcoming album, Koi No Yokan. I've been wondering for a while now what that title meant, but I've never really gotten around to searching for it. Until today.

Koi no yokan. Isn't it such an overwhelmingly beautiful concept? The idea of just... knowing?
