Star’s Diary: Seo Jae-Hyuck (3)

[스타일기]부활 서재혁③ 떠돌이 음악가, 부활 되다

A Wanderer Musician, is Resurrected (Became Boohwal)

Released 11 June 2010 (11.33 am)

서재혁은 20년 넘는 세월을 베이스와 함께 했다.

= Seo Jae-Hyuck, spent over 20 years with base guitar. =

1994년 봄. 서재혁의 정신은 혼미했다. 수면 부족 탓이었다. 처음 잡은 일은 무척 고달팠다. 군 제대 뒤 바로 뛰어든 취업전선은 밴드. 베이스 연주가로 가수 최재훈과 함께 무대에 올랐다.

Spring 1994. Seo Jae-Hyuck was disoriented. It’s because he lacked sleep. The first job he’s got really wore him off. The first occupation he did after discharged from the military service was a band. As a bass musician, he stood on the stage together with the singer Choi Jae-Hoon.

바쁜 일정 탓에 심신은 지쳐갔다. 하지만 마음은 뿌듯했다. 앨범 작업을 끝내고 맞는 관중들의 환호가 청량제였다. 실력을 알아보는 업계의 시선도 일할 맛을 나게 했다. 입소문의 효과는 컸다. 최재훈 밴드 일을 하면서도 터보, 포지션 등의 앨범작업에 참여할 수 있었다.

Because of the busy schedule, his body and soul was exhausted. But he felt really great at heart. After finishing the album recording, the cheering from spectators was like a medicine that makes him feel good inside. Also the attention from the industry that recognizes his skills, makes him like the job he was doing. Mouth to mouth rumors have a huge effect. While he was working with Choi Jae-Hoo’s band, he could also join the album recording for “Turbo”, “Position”, and other artists.

연주는 항상 즐거웠다. 이전부터 하고 싶었던 음악. 그 끈을 놓지 않은 자신이 자랑스럽기까지 했다. 하지만 의아한 점이 있었다. 노력한 만큼 대가가 따르지 않았다. 체불되는 임금. 주머니는 늘 허전했다. 오히려 방송, 행사 등의 일정만 많아져 매니저와 다투는 날이 잦아졌다.

He always enjoy playing music. Music, that he’d always wanted to do. He also felt proud of himself for not letting go of that dream. But there was also some doubts. The compensation does not follow the hard work he put in. Overdue or unpaid wage. His pockets were always empty. On the other hand, only broadcasting and events schedule were increasing and arguments with the manager became frequent.

“불이익을 당하면서까지 일을 하고 싶지 않았다.”

“I didn’t want to work where I have to suffer loss.”

서재혁은 최재훈의 밴드를 과감하게 그만뒀다. 절이 싫어 중이 떠난 격이었다. 보이지 않는 끈에 묶여 동료들은 한 명도 마중을 나오지 않았다. 음악계의 현실은 분명 잘못돼 있었다.

Seo Jae-Hyuck decisively quit from Choi Jae-Hoon band. 절이 싫어 중이 떠난 격이었다. Binded by an unseen strap, none of his colleagues stood out to welcome him. Obviously, there was something wrong with the music industry.

베이스를 틈틈이 연주하며 그는 다양한 경험을 체험했다. 공연 기획자, 뮤직비디오 프로듀서, 무대 연출가…. 모두 음악과 관련된 일들. 정신은 다시 혼미해졌다. 피곤함 탓은 아니었다. 무대 위에서 음악을 연주하는 친구들이 마냥 부러웠다.

Playing bass in his spare time, he experienced different things. Event planner, music video producer, stage actor… all works related to music. He was disoriented once again. It was not because of overworking. He simply envied those people playing music on the stage.

“‘내가 여기서 무엇을 하고 있나’라는 생각이 들었다. 한순간 정체성을 잃어버린 듯 했다.”

“‘What am I doing here,’ I thought. It seemed like I had lost my identity for a moment.”

한참동안의 생각 끝에 그는 알게 됐다. 자신이 계속 음악 주변에서 맴돌고 있다는 사실을. 더 이상의 겉돌기는 의미가 없는 듯 했다. 그래서 결심했다. 배가 고파도 무대에 오르면서 살겠다고.

After quite a moment of thinking, he realized. The fact that he’s lingering around the works relating to music. There was no meaning in feeling left out or out of place anymore. So he made up his mind. No matter he’d have an empty stomach, he’d make his living by standing on the stage.

이전 유명세 덕에 일은 수월하게 얻을 수 있었다. 연주를 의뢰하는 업체는 시간이 흐를수록 점점 많아졌다. 국내 최고 음반기획사로 꼽혔던 도레미레코드사까지 손을 뻗을 정도였다.

Thanks to his recent popularity, he could get jobs pretty easily. Over time, more agencies come to have faith in musicians . His popularity was as good as Korea’s best music production agency Doremi Record would have come with an offer.

승승장구에 서재혁의 어깨에는 조금씩 힘이 들어갔다. 거만해졌다. 혼자 음반을 제작해도 성공할 수 있을 것 같았다. 그래서 지인이던 김윤성과 함께 노래를 녹음하고 기획사를 돌아다녔다.

With the smooth path he was walking, he started to feel power coming through again on his shoulders. He became arrogant. It felt like he could even produce an album all by himself and succeed. So together with Kim Yoon-Seong, they recorded a song and went around visiting production agencies.

반응은 냉담했다. 손을 내민 기획사가 한 곳도 없었다. 둘은 결성도 못한 채 해체의 쓴잔을 마셔야 했다.

The response was rather cold. Not one single agency offered to receive them. The two had to separate ways even before they made a team.

“윤성이 형이 미국행 비행기에 올랐을 만큼 크게 실망했다. 그래도 의리는 있었다. 떠나는 공항에서 수고했다며 부활 오디션의 기회를 만들어줬다.”

“Yun-Seong Hyeong was hugely disappointed that he took off to the States. But he had faith in me. In the airport, he said I’ve done a good job and opened the opportunity for me to join Boohwal’s audition.”

사실 서재혁은 제안이 내키지 않았다. 록음악에 흥미가 없었고, 마약으로 얼룩진 이미지도 마음에 들지 않았다. 비교적 나이 많은 멤버들도 껄끄럽게 느껴졌다.

Actually, Seo Jae-Hyuck didn’t incline to the offer. He had no interest in rock music, he also didn’t like the image stained with drugs. He also felt uncomfortable with the relative difference of the members’ ages.

하지만 연주가로 사는 건 더 싫었다. 자신만의 음악색깔을 내야 할 때가 온 듯했다. 어렵게 올려 든 수화기. 잠시 뒤 통화가 된 김태원은 퉁명스러운 말투로 이렇게 말했다.

But he hated living as a mere session musician even more. He felt that it was time that he showed his own color of music. He picked up the phone heavily. After a moment, he was connected to Kim Tae-Won who bluntly said,

“‘론리 나잇’과 ‘사랑할수록’ 연주를 준비해오세요.”

“Please be prepared to perform ‘Lonely Night’ and “사랑할수록'(The More I Love).”

서재혁은 기분이 상했다. 록도 아닌 발라드로 오디션을 본다는 것이 불쾌했다. 짧은 순간의 치기였다. 곡을 카피하며 음악이 세련되고 수준 높다는 사실을 알게 됐다. 끊임없는 연습으로 손에 익힌 두 곡. 그러나 정작 오디션은 30초 만에 끝났다.

Seo Jae-Hyuck’s felt offended. He didn’t feel good about auditioning with ballad song, for a rock band. A momentary childishness. Later he came to realize the fact that he could increase his standard by copying and re-arranging music. His hands became used to the two songs through endless practice. However, the audition was over in 30 seconds in reality.

Gilmor Guitar Endoser Concert

Gilmor Guitar, a guitar producing company which has had 10 years experience in the field, held this event in KT&G 상상마당 on July 23rd, 2010. The concert was also completed with door prize that includes 2 guitars, several amplifiers, drums, drums lessons, etc.

I just came back from the concert which ended at 10 pm Friday night. It started exactly at 7.30, and the entrance started from 6.30 but I arrived at sometime before 6, and the line was already unbelievably extremely long! But anyhows, I made it to the front part of the stage~the red arrow in the picture indicates me.. lol :p

The concert was opened with “Began Who“s performance, followed by Boohwal, and last followed by Choi Hee-Sun’s band. Boohwal, as usual, started with “The Elephant Escapes” (코끼리 탈출하다) followed directly by “Lonely Night.” Next in line, as always in rock concerts, “1970” and “Someday“, followed by “Never Ending Story“, and closed with “The Story of You and the Rain” (비와당신의 이야기).

Since the concert was held by a guitar producing company, the concert was followed with a jam session of the three respective guitarists, which was really, REALLY, the peak of the show. It was just AWESOME!! So, let’s see about the guitarists.

최희선 (Choi Hee-Sun), guitarist and leader from 조용필과 위대한 탄생 band. To be honest, I have no idea how great this band was at their heydays, but after tonight, I have no doubt what a legendary guitarist he is. He is also the most senior among the three guitarists performing tonight, and the charisma… you just can’t miss it!!

.

.

김태원 (Kim Tae-Won), well, do you need anymore explanation on him? 🙂 Leader of Boohwal, lately famous with the nickname “national grandmother”, practically made him the most popular person on the stage tonight. His performance on the stage tonight was flawless although it was interesting to know that he had to change guitars almost every one or two new songs whereas the other guitarist didn’t^^

.

The youngest, and the most junior of all three, 유병렬 (Yoo Byung-Ryeol) of the band “Began Who” (비갠후). Judging from the age, likely to be the leader as well.

….

.

.

In the jam session, they performed three songs. The first one was guitar-jam carrying “Purple Rain”, the second one they perform ZZ TOP’s “Tush” with Kim Tae-Won singing!:), and closed by Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water” sung by Began Who’s vocalist 김길중 (Kim Kil-Jung). The jam session was also joined by Bassist Choi Hoon (최훈) and Drummer Choi Sejin (최세진).

Btw, I made recordings of today’s concert. So those of you who wish to have the mp3 file of the jam sessions (not the Boohwal part), leave your email address on the comment space. The time limit is Sunday 5 pm Korean time (GMT+9) to leave your email addresses. (over/마감)

Hybrid MMORG “Argo”

“Argo” is a game about a natural resource called “어스듐” (Earthdium), which leads to the war between two tribes called “노블리언” (Noblian) and “플로레스라” (Floresslah). As a new futuristic game (MMORPG) “Argo” is having a pre-Opening Beta Test (Pre-OBT) from the 22nd of July until August 2nd.

The soundtrack for Argo is sung by Jeong Dong-Ha, and among the OST, and the song “세상위로(Above the World) that describes the story of this game is opened for public during the pre-OBT period. They also plan to release a mini album for Argo soundtrack.

세상위로

눈을 감고 그려보던 세상이 있어
애기로만 전해 듣던 지상의 하늘
별을 어떤 빚일까
바다는 푸를까
내가 꿈구는 그곳일까

잠겨있던 알고의 문이 열리고
날 잡아 끄는 강한 바람의 느낌
절대 놓치지 않아 고귀한 생명의 애너지
모든 걸 이뤄낼 수 있는 힘

불타버린 세월을 숨긴 채
알 수 없는 운명 속의 우리들
더 이상의 후회는 없어
자유의 저 세상위로 날아가

잠겨있던 알고의 문이 열리고
날 잡아 끄는 강한 바람의 느낌
절대 놓치지 않아 고귀한 생명의 애너지
모든 걸 이뤄낼 수 있는 힘

삼켜버린 눈물의 갇힌 채
버려진 도시 속의 우리들
마지막 그 빚을 되 찾아
미래의 저 희망위로 날아가

어스듐 빚 나는 보석
그 모든 시작을 의미
그날을 잊지 못해
두렵지 않아
포기 할 순 없어

불타버린 세월을 숨긴 채
알 수 없는 운명 속의 우리들
더 이상의 후회는 없어
자유의 저 세상위로 날아가

노을 (Glow of the Setting Sun)

Composed by 서재혁 (Seo Jae-Hyuck) and written by 김태원  (Kim Tae-Won). This song was released in the 10th album(2005) and was also used as the movie “Dirty Carnival” (비열한 거리) OST. In a recent radio talk show, 서재혁 said that he  felt that this song didn’t receive enough attention from the public because not long after the movie came out, one of Korea’s long lasting trot song “떙벌” was released, overcoming this song ^^;

I personally think this is a beautiful song. Below is the movie trailer with the song as its background, and an unplugged version performed live. Enjoy! 🙂

노을

(작곡:서재혁. 작사:김태원)

바람에 흔들리는 커튼에  (the curtains swayed by the wind)
보여져 가는 너 지금도 너를 바라보는 나에게  (you coming to sight, to me who is starring at you even now)

설레이는 커튼 그 사이로  (the moving curtains, in between them)
만난적 없어도 서로 말을 하듯  (Even though we never met, as if we talk to each other)
.
날 모르는널 사랑한다는건  (That I love you, you who don’t (even) know me)
언젠가 라는 슬픈얘기  (Once upon a time.. a sad story)
널 만나서도 말을 할수 없는건  (Even if I meet you, that I can’t speak)
저 노을이 져가는 이유  (the reason that glow in the sky is setting)

설레이는 내 꿈속안에서  (In my fluttered dream)
만날순 있어도 서로 말이없이  (Even if we can meet, we don’t say a word to each other)
.
날 모르는널 사랑한다는건
언젠가 라는 슬픈얘기
널 만나서도 말을 할수 없는건
저 노을이 져가는 이유
.
너 언젠가 걸었던 그 길에 그 발자욱위를  (the street you once walked, on that footprints)
내가 다시 걷고 바람이 불어오고 너에게로  (I walk on it again, the wind is blowing to you)
.
날 모르는널 사랑한다는건
언젠가 라는 슬픈얘기
널 만나서도 말을 할수 없는건
저 노을이 져가는 이유

내 옆을 지난 널 바라본다는 건  (Looking at you passing by my side)
언제가라는 아픈얘기  (Once upon a time.. a sad story)
널 기다리며 다가갈수없는건  (While waiting for you, that I cannot get closer)
노을이 져가는 이유  (the reason the glow in the sky is setting)

.

Harmony

This is a special posting, for several reasons:

1. This is exactly my 100th post since I first started this blog (YeY! ^ㅇ^)

2. You can hear all Boohwal members’ voices on this particular post! ^_^

As most of you would have already known, Kim Tae-Won is appearing in a variety show called Men’s Qualification: 101 things to do before you die (남자의 자격) and in this show they perform different missions every week. The mission this time, is to join (make) a choir. The members, of course, has got to be more than the 7 guys in 남자의 자격. So they held an audition to select the remaining 23 members of the choir, and guess what? All Boohwal members showed up for the audition! ^_^

Ow, the video is my own making, in order to avoid any forms of property rights infringements. So just enjoy their beautiful voice and songs~ 🙂

Ow, please note that the audition is for a choir, so it’s to see who’s voice match best with the 7 original members. It’s not to see who sings best..

.

In the same order as their audition, the first to come is bassist 재혁, singing “10월의 어느 멋진날에” (Serenade to Spring) (originally sang by 김동규). The first time I and I believe most fans had ever heard him sing, lovely~ ^-^

….

창밖에 앉은 바람 한 점에도
사랑은 가득한걸
널 만난 세상 더는 소원 없어
바램은 죄가 될 테니까
….
..

.

.Second, the drummer 채제민, singing “가리워진 길 (originally sang by 유재하). Note that he had always sang this song for the solo performance in Boohwal’s concert when his shoulder was still hurt and he couldn’t perform solo drum~^^

보일듯 말듯 가물거리는 안개속에 쌓인 길
이리로 가나 저리로 갈가 아득하기만 한데
 

그대여 힘이 되주오
나에게 주어진 길 찾을 수 있도록

 

.

.

Third, and lastly, vocalist 정동하 singin Aladin’s theme “A Whole New World” (Nick Pitera). Well. we all know he can sing, do we? ^^

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no, or where to go, or say we are only dreaming

A whole new world

.

Well, since guitarist 김태원 is already in the 남자의 자격 team, he didn’t have to take the audition. Actually, there was some kind of test to group the members to soprano, alto, etc, but I missed recording it, and 김태원 didn’t sing a full song anyway.

.

So, instead, to complete this post, I’m presenting you the recording from MNet The Pub final shooting (which I went to). Sorry the song is cut in the middle, there’s something wrong with my movie maker.

Guitarist 김태원 and pianist 진보라, performing Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” (Led Zeppelin)

Babe, baby, baby, I’m Gonna Leave You.
I said baby, you know I’m gonna leave you
I’m gonna leave you when the summertime,
Leave you when the summer comes rollin’
Leave you when the summer comes along

Babe, babe, baby, baby, I don’t wanna leave you
I ain’t jokin’ woman, I got to ramble
O, yeah, baby, baby, I’m gonna leave you

….
