This mini-album comes in four physical versions: Bambi, Night Rain, Dreamy and Misty.
II. Music and Composition
Bambi consists of 6 love-themed R&B songs through which Baekhyun shows off his charming voice.
The name of the title track and the EP "refers the white-tailed deer in the [eponymous] 1942 Disney animated film, but it can also be translated as "night rain" (밤비) in Korean.
Bambi is a R&B song that combines a emotional/soulful guitar melody and Baekhyun's groovy vocals perfectly. Its lyrics tell a mature love story in fairytale-like expressions, enhancing the charm of the song.
B-side tracks "Love Scene" and "All I Got" present romantic sentimentalism while the mellow B-side track "Privacy" and the sorrowful B-side "Cry For Love" present sensibility. This mini-album also contains the song "Amusement Park" which was previously released on December 21, 2020 as a digital single."Love Scene" was written, produced and arranged by singer-songwriter Colde who also participated in Baekhyun's two previous Korean-language mini-albums City Lights and Delight on two songs: "Diamond" (lyrics) and "Love Again" (lyrics, composer and arranger).
"Love Scene" and "Love Again" are linked and depict the same long love story at different stages.
