According to fans, at Jonghyun's last solo concert, the idol explained that he was inspired to write "Waffle" after seeing a hashtag. The hashtag sign '#' resembles the pattern shape inside a waffle. The word 'waffle' also tends to mean, "speak or write, especially at great length, without saying anything important or useful." In Korean, waffle (wa-pul) sounds similar to 악플 (ak-pul) which means malicious comments. 


Overall, the song "Waffle" cleverly disses malicious comments and baseless rumors. In regards to the deep meaning behind "Waffle", netizens commented, "Hashtag, waffle, ak-pul... He's truly a genius. The best. I sincerely admire him", "I hope all the malicious commenters listen to this song. This song gave me goosebumps", "Jonghyun is really amazing. I really hope all the malicious commenters stop", "Wow the lyrics are so amazing... He's really a genius."
