Lack of Updates

For the regular visitors of this blog who were disappointed with the recent lack of updates, I sincerely apologize. I was accepted to an accelerated nursing program and will be attending it in May. And so, in addition to work, I was busy with completing all the required paperwork and travelling down to the school to take care of business. Thus, blog updates will occur on an ocassional basis, instead of regularly. Once again, to those who care, I apologize.

Below are some goodies from the latest K-dramas, namely, Que Sera Sera and Witch Amusement. Enjoy!

Modernizing Classical Symphonies

Recent K-dramas, in addition to their entertaining storyline, have integrated the works of classical music geniuses into their OSTs (Original Sound Tracks) and have transformed those “outdated” yet classic pieces into something trendy and hip. The amazing thing is that these remixes fit perfectly with the dramas and they definitely enhance the audience’s experience of certain scenes and/or emotions. Examples of “modernized” classical symphonies include songs from the OST of My Girl and most recently, Witch Amusement.

Mozart’s Symphony No. 40

“Never Say Goodbye” – Mario & Nesty

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 (1st Movement)

운명의 장난 命運的惡作劇 -Mc진리(Feat.하하)

Special thanks to yeohweping for the OST.

Song of the Moment

This song is performed by Lee Ha Na in When Spring Comes. LHN sings it beautifully. She’s really talented. Enjoy!

Lyrics
Translation by: ai* (WITH S2)

Even though I was young and didn’t know much.
But I understand it now what it means to leave.

Mother’s arms are so warm…
But when it was time, she left…
no other choice…

Goodbye… goodbye… goodbye…

When I let go my hand,
She left like a dandelion.

Never coming back…
like a dandelion…

Like a dandelion…

Like a dandelion…

Lee Soo Young

Lee Soo Young is one of my favorite Korean artists. I love her voice! My most favorite song of hers is “La La La.” I’ve watched several of her MVs and it seems like her signature mark is tragic love story because either someone dies, they all die, and/or there’s been some sort of tragic accident. Oh, and another thing. Most of the MVs have multiple parts. Wait. Perhaps, not just MVs from Lee Soo Young, but almost all of the ones that I’ve seen. Quite depressing, if you ask me. Here, if you haven’t seen them already, watch the ones below and you’ll know what I mean.

“La La La” by Lee Soo Young

This MV is more creepy than sad.

Lalala
Translation by: JuJu_Bar @ soompi forums
Source: aheeyah.com

Before I realized so, I forgot that you had left.
I’m like this, an idiot without a good sense.
When I hear the phone ring, I keep thinking that it’s you.
I even cleared my throat before answering the phone.

Habits are scary. It doesn’t happen as I command it in my mind.
Because I’m more used to love rather than separation.

I’ll try to forget our love and our memories, even if it won’t work, I’ll try to forget like there wasn’t anything in the first place.

Lalalalala. Lalala. Lalalala. Lalala. Lalala. Lalala.

When I was shopping, I absentmindedly shopped for your things also.
Without speaking, I put back the items like an idiot.
“If there’s a good movie, we have to see it together,”
Without knowing, I have those kind of thoughts.

Did you have moments like these? At least once?
Or did it just stop right after we broke up?

I’ll try to change, like how you changed.
Now, I’m going to love again.
When time goes by, and I keep living life,
I’ll probably get used to somebody else, too.

I’ll try to forget our love and our memories, even if it won’t work, I’ll try to forget like there wasn’t anything in the first place.

Lalalalala. Lalala. Lalalala. Lalala. Lalala. Lalala.

You should forget me, and
I’ll try to change, like how you changed.
Now, I’m going to love again.
When time goes by, and I keep living life,
I’ll probably get used to somebody else, too.

I’ll try to forget our love and our memories, even if it won’t work, I’ll try to forget like there wasn’t anything in the first place.

Lalalalala. Lalala. Lalalala. Lalala. Lalala. Lalala.

“Grace” by Lee Soo Young

New Song on Playlist

The Origin of Love (from Hedwig and the Angry Inch OST)
Lyrics provided by: lyrics.net
Edit: doozy

When the Earth was still flat
and the clouds made of fire
and the mountains stretched up to the sky
sometimes higher

Folks roamed the earth
like big rolling kegs
they had two sets of arms
they had two sets of legs

They had two faces
peering out of one giant head
so they could watch all around them
as they talked while they read

And they never knew nothing of love
It was before
The Origin Of Love
Origin of love
The origin of Love
Origin of love

Now there was three sexes then
One that looked like two men
glued up back too back
They called the children of the Sun

And similar of shape and girth
was the children of the earth
they looked like two girls
rolled up in one

And the children of the Moon
Were like a fork shaped on a spoon
They were part Sun part Earth
part daughter part son

The Origin of Love

Now the gods grew quite scared
of our strength and defiance
And Thor said :”I’m gonna kill them all
With my hammer like I killed the giants.”

But Zeus said:”No, you better let me
use my lightning like scissors
Like I cut the legs of the whales
dinosaurs and the lizards.

And then he grabbed up some bolts
He let out a laugh
He said:”I’ll split them right down the middle
I’m gonna cut them right up in half.

And the storm clouds gathered above
Into great balls of fire

And then fire shot down
From the sky in bolts
Like shining blades of a knife
And they ripped right through the flesh
Of the children of the Sun and the Moon and the Earth

And some Indian god sewed the wound up
To a hole full around to a belly
to remind us of the price we pay

And Osiris, and the gods of the Nile
gathered up a big storm
to blow a hurricane
to scatter us away.
A flood of wind and rain
a sea of tidal waves
to wash us all away
and if we don’t behave
They cut us down again
And we’ll be hopping round on one foot
and looking through one eye

The last time I saw you
we were just split in two
you was looking at me
I was looking at you

You had a way so familiar
I could not recognize
cause you had blood on your face
I had blood in my eyes
But I could swear by your expression
that the pain down in your soul
was the same as the one down in mine

That’s the pain that cuts a straight line
down through the heart
We call it love
we wrapped our armes around each other
tried to shove ourselves back together
we was making love
making love

It was a cold dark evening
such a long time ago
By the mighty hand of Joe

It was a sad story
how we became lonely two-leg creatures
It was the story of the Origin of Love
That’s The origin of love
The Origin of love (x3)

Alone in Love

I Am Still
Artist: Sweet Sorrow (thanks, manuroxs)
Translation by: [as of now, unknown]
To download the song, click here.

No matter how I think, I am still.
No matter how we apart, I am still.
As if I’ve forgetten, I shut my eyes right, yet I am still.
Turn around, pretend we’re never met, yet I am still.

Even when I move straightforward, I am still.
Letting you hurt so much, gazing at everything like that,
using those sorrowful eyes of yours and slightly smile.

No matter how I think, I am still.
No matter how we part, I am still.
I am apart from you everyday, yet I am still.
Even as a silhouette in my dream, I am still.
All these are ending, yet I am still.

Mustering all my courage, yet I am still.
Letting you hurt so much, my tears are flowing like that,
yet I still don’t have the courage to embrace you.

I am standing there like that, I am walking on the same spot like that,
I will love you even more.
I am standing like that, I am gazing at you deeply like that,
I’ll find it harder to leave you.
On your weak shoulders, in order to give you more courage,
just like the warm sun.

I want to embrace you again, I am hesitating like that,
my tears are flowing like that, I’ll love you even more.
I’m standing like this, i’m gazing deeply to you like this
as I will be able to hold onto you like this.

No matter how I think, I am still.
No matter how we apart, I am still.
I am part from you everyday, yet I am still.

doozy: This song is a prologue to my next project. Since I like Alone in Love so much, I’m planning to rewatch it and write summary/commentary for each episode. So please look forward to it and hope you’ll enjoy reading it!
Also, if anyone knows the artist who sang “I Am Still” and the person who translated the song, please let me know so that I can properly credit them. Thanks in advance!

La La La Update

“Life is Wonderful” (from Wordplay)
Artist: Jason Mraz
Provided by: lyrics.net

It takes a crane to build a crane
It takes two floors to make a story
It takes an egg to make a hen
It takes a hen to make an egg
There is no end to what I’m saying

It takes a thought to make a word
And it takes some words to make an action
And it takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction

Chorus
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la

It takes a night to make it dawn
And it takes a day to make you yawn brother
It takes some old to make you young
It takes some cold to know the sun
It takes the one to have the other

And it takes no time to fall in love
But it takes you years to know what love is
And it takes some fears to make you trust
It takes those tears to make it rust
It takes the dust to have it polished

Chorus
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la

It takes some silence to make sound
And It takes a loss before you found it
And it takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to make you care
It takes a hole to make a mountain

Chorus
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is meaningful
Ah la la la la la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la la la la la life is.. is so wonderful.. oh!
Ah la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la-ah
Ah la la la-ah ah-a ah-a

Bad Family OST

“Sarang Imnida” (It’s Love)
Artist: Go Hyun Wook
Translation by: joycekimxD

Through the pieces of the sunlight, I look at you
The soft wind makes your hair
slowly fall and go back
I love you, I really love you
to me, that empty heart is so absolute.

Chorus
You are smiling.. and you are smiling again
just with that I am living in heaven
through all the things my heart makes me do
loving you is what I am thankful for most.

If the room of my memories is so small and I can’t fit them all
I’ll erase me then
since I can’t throw you out
in this troubled world and tiring stories
when we’re together, we hear all this is a song
I love you, I love you
the words of the world are so unworthy
in this world, after having all the love
if we two have more love, then that is my heart
what makes me laugh and makes me live on
your other name is love.

Chorus

You are smiling.. and you are smiling again
just with that I am living in heaven
through all the things my heart makes me do
loving you is what I am thankful for most.

My Girl OST

The Mermaid Who Loved The Shark
Artist: Park Hee Kyung
Translation by: busnumber
To download the song, click here.

I couldn’t say with words but I think it was from the beginning
Come to me, though I know that you will hurt me

Don’t be too suprised, or too excited or too hurt
But a love that sometimes complains and is jealous

Chorus
Even if it’s normal, do you know that I want to have that kind of love?
I wanted to stop because I despised you who pretended to not know
But I can’t go on without you and because even you know this
I’m still sadly by your side

You try to say something different
But if I tell you that I love you first
I wonder what face expression you will have

Chorus
Even if it’s normal, do you know that I want to have that kind of love?
I wanted to stop because I despised you who pretended to not know
But I can’t go on without you and because even you know this
I don’t want to give you a burden but
I’m still sadly by your side

Can you only figure out my love with words?
I wanted to stop because I despised you who pretended to not know
But I can’t go on without you and because even you know this
I don’t want to give you a burden but
I’m still sadly by your side

Perhaps Love (Is this love?)- Goong OST
Artists: HowL & J
Translation by: Jungie
Source: aheeyah.com

I don’t remember when it happened.
I’d get dizzy just thinking about you.
Because my thoughts kept stretching, my heart was surprised.
It’s a little awkward that I keep saying to you that “it’s nothing”
and that “my heart’s just trifling”

Chorus
Is this love? And if you feel the same way, is this the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you and the more the world listens
the louder it yells it.
Why is it just now that I hear it?
That the love has been found us so we might be together.

Even if I try to explain my feelings, the only true way to understand
would be to become me and feel them.
I’m already inside of you, just how you’re inside of me.
I don’t know if we’ve gotten used to the meaning between us.

Chorus
Is this love? And if you feel the same way, is this the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you and the more the world listens
the louder it yells it.
Why is it just now that I hear it?
That the love has been found us so we might be together.

Now that I think about it, there were so many moments of fluttering.
I’ll make up for all the time lost.

I’ll be with you and give you only good memories,
so in return you can’t leave me.
Even the slightest moments make me feel uneasy
Stay with me

I’m loving you (until then)
like this (only you) already

Ways to Avoid the Sun (Gtr. Remix)
Artist: Bi/Rain
Translation by: ShungLuV @ soompi forums
Source: aheeyah.com

The image of me crying
The foolish image of myself
I hate the sun that shines upon the ground
(I hate the sun)
If anyone recognized me
and asked why I was crying
I really hated not being able to answer
(I really hated it)

Chorus
I wanted to avoid the sun
No matter how hard I ran
The sun was always overhead
I really wanted to forget you
No matter how hard I tried,
No matter how hard I tried you were still inside of me

I really hated to still miss your
Smile and the hands that touched me
(I really hated it)
Inside of so many people
While they laughed and shared stories
I tried to forget you
But again, tears fall

Chorus

Everyone thinks that I forgot
But I think that I’m going to go crazy
I really want to forget
I really want to erase my memory
But it’s not working…

Chorus

Like a thorn that is stuck so deep that you can’t take it out
Like a scratch that was hurt so much that it will leave a scar
A person like you can’t ever be erased
Even though we’re apart, it seems like we’re still living together
If only I could erase you by crying
I cry so much that it’s enough to make a river
Even if I live, I want to forget you and live correctly…
I want to live normally… I want to live normally…

I believe- My Sassy Girl OST
Artist: Shin Seung Hoon
Translation by: goro-chan (additional credits to warghalv)
Source: aheeyah.com

I believe… When you are not with me there are no stars in the sky.
I believe… The way back to you will feel a little far.
I’ll carry all those memories deep inside me.
I’ll feel pain, it’ll make tears fall.

Chorus
When I won’t cry you will leave me
With no change and no tears.
Someday again the tears will come around
You know it
I’ll believe that you are waiting.
I do it for you.

I believe… It’ll hurt me to see, you can’t cry.
I believe… My tears will fall, you should turn back to me again.
Again I’ll glimpse you come into my sight
And it’ll make my tears fall.

Chorus
When I won’t cry you will leave me
With no change and no tears.
Someday again the tears will come around
You know it
I’ll believe that you are waiting.
I do it for you.

Before I knew you, the world was dazzling.
From that sky I got left with tears.
I will care for that person.

You are the only reason…
To me the wait gives me enough happiness.
Love is the only reason…
As days pass by,
If you forget the way, I’ll be waiting
I do it for you.
I do it for you.
