Mnet 20’s Choice

Thanks to WSK program that’s sponsored by the Korean government, I got an entrance pass to MNet’s 20’s Choice Award this evening. The only reason I attended, was of course because of the person below also receives the honor to be one of MNet’s “20 most influential people in 2010” choice for the category “break yourself”~^^

In the commencement, he addressed the trophy for all group musicians (band) in Korea 🙂

Too bad my spot was awesome if I were into some boybands, but Taewon Oppa showed up from the opposite side of the stage so I could only took a shot of the huge screen above the swimming pool >_<

.

As you can see, I was sitting right behind those two guys, and a lot of the artists show up from an entrance to my left. But Kim Tae-Won showed up from the opposite site behind that bridge you see on the right T_Y

Niweis, congrats Tae-Won Oppa!! 🙂

[Music Storage] Boohwal Stage 25.08.2010

음. .오랜만에 생동맞는 이야기 잠깐 할게요~대신 영어로 번역하지 않겠습니다^^;
어제는 제 졸업식날이었거든요. 그리고 어제, 부활의 음악창고 무대에 참석했어요.^^
아주 아름다운 졸업선물이었어요. 그리고 참석이라고… 무대 “위”에 있기는 했고요~ㅎㅎ ^ㅇ^

I’m just too tired to write anything at the moment, but somehow it feels like I have to write something right now or I’ll bring and leave all of the things I wanted to write in the dreamland.. (it’s 2 am) But it also feels like i don’t have enough energy anymore. Anyways, today was a special day coz I got to watch Boohwal’s live stage (recording) in KBS 2.

Well, actually, there has been some other live concerts and events I’ve failed reporting, such as the Midsummer Festifal in National Theater of Korea and “Donghwa” MV preview.. so.. I’ll do this one!! ><

df

As you can see, there are audience on the left side of the stage. I was sitting right across from them, on the right side of the stage. Resulting I saw most of Boohwal members’ side look (lol), yet a clear sight to the drummer Chae Jemin ^^

Today’s stage was really meaningful for me for many reasons. I won’t bore you by elaborating the reasons :p

Last night, Boohwal opened with “Lonely Night”, followed by “Donghwa” and “The More I Love”. And followed by… guess what? “사랑해서 사랑해서”!! (Because I Love You, Because I Love You) :))

They were called for anchor twice, the first one they performed “Never Ending Story”. And the second one, which was not recorded because the recording was over (but due to audience call was allowed) they performed “Heeya” in rock version.

In one word, it was just a-w-e-s-o-m-e! 🙂

회상 II (Reminiscence II)

This is a song that really highlights Kim Tae-Won’s guitar skills, and even if you don’t understand the song (the first time I heard it was in May concert, and I couldn’t catch one word of the lyrics) you can feel somewhat pain that is projected in the song. Written and composed by Kim Tae-Won.

This song is inserted in 3 albums:

  • 2nd Album [Remember] ~ 1987
  • 6th Album [이상 시선] ~ 1999
  • 8th Album [새 벽] ~2002

나 어릴때 친구하던 조그만 너 어디있나
my friend when I was little, little you, where is he
.
나 지금 너 찾아가네
I am now, looking for you
.
다 커버린 내가 미워 지나쳐도 할 수없네
you’ve grown, I hate it. Even if I pass by you, I wouldn’t know
.
조그만 너 찾아가네
I am looking for the little you
.
옛 동네에 내가 와서 조그만 널 찾아보니
I came to the old neighborhood, looking for you
.
내 모습이 처량하네
I look deserted
.
그 고왔던 내 모습은 다 커버린 나이기에
the look of me that used to be beautiful, because I grew up
.
보려해도 볼 수없네
can’t see it even when I want to see it

부활 1집 [Rock Will Never Die]

Boohwal’s first album. Released in 1986. One unique thing about Boohwal, being a Korean band where rock doesn’t sell that much, they wrote and composed all of their songs. Except for this one album, which has 2 songs written and composed by non-band member. As hard as it was for a first step, for five young men in their early twenties and some even younger, their hard work finally paid off by the release of this album “Rock Will Never Die”.

Soloist

What’s special about this song? It’s one of the songs composed by 서재혁. You can definitely distinguish the bass part in the middle. Before “Someday”, it used to be the “must” song that’s always played together with 1970 (composed by 채제민). Oh, and this song was released in the 9th album, in 2004.

And for me, the part that I always wait for in this song, is that bass part. And yes, possibly it’s becoz I like 서재혁 that much, but also, he is a great bassist you know! 🙂

The following video is from EBS Concert, shot April 6th, 2010, and I was there!^^ I’m also among the audience you could see glimpses of me, that is if you know how I look like.. 😀 In this one, Soloist is directly (and perfectly) followed with 가능성. Enjoy!

잠 못 이뤄가며 생각해두었던
준비되어진 대사와
약속한 시간에 그곳에 도착한 안가는 시간대와
.
시간이 다해도 다시 기다려야 할 자존심의 한계와
하나 둘 꺼져간 가로등 그 아래 서있을 내 모습과
.
낳익는 간판과 엇갈리는 차와
흐르는 방향의 초침과 떠오르는 예감과
가장된 우연과 만날 수 밖에 없었다는 숙명과
.
기다림의 끝엔 받아들여야 할 단 하루라는 장면과
약속한 시간에 그곳에 도착할 안가는 시간대와
.
시간이 다한후 되돌아와야할 자존심의 한계와
하나 둘 꺼져간 어두운 간판을 바라볼 내 모습과
.
낯익은 간판과 엇갈리는 차와
약속한 방향의 흐르는 초침과
떠오른 예감과 가장된 우연과
만날 수 밖에 없었다는 숙명과
.
익숙한 거리와 스쳐가는 차와
더 이상 흐르지 못하는 초침과
떠오른 예감과 가장된 우연과
만날 수 밖에 없었다는 숙명과
.

[Won Jun-Hee & Jeong Dong-Ha] Larva

The song was composed by “Grape” and lyrics written by Kang Eun-Gyeong. It is inserted in Won Jun-Hee’s single album “Return,” which was released in 2008. It was remade and released again in the form of digital single in May 2009, titled “Return Zero”.

.
얼마나 먼 길이 될지 (how long a path)
그 누구도 내게 알려 주지 않지만 (even though nobody’s telling me)
.
가슴 속에 숨 쉬는 꿈은 (in my heart, a breathing dream)
푸른 빛으로 나의 발걸음을 이끌어 (leading my foot steps in blue light)
.
지금은 비록 보잘 것 없어 (there’s nothing I can show right now)
초라한 모습이지만 (i may look shabby, but)
나는 슬퍼하지 않아 (i am not sad)
.
어둠을 뚫고 아픔 속을 지나 날아오를 그 날을 위해 (pierce through the darkness, for that day I will fly up from the pain)
포기하지 않아 (i am not giving up)
눈부시게 반짝거릴 날개로 (with a pair of brilliantly dazzling wings)
언젠간 나도 저 태양 너머 무지개를 찾아 갈거야 (one day, I too will cross the sun and find rainbow)
.
모두가 날 외면하고 (everybody disregard me)
뒤돌아서 내게 손가락질 하지만 (even though they point their fingers behind my back)
.
남모르게 품어왔던 꿈은 (the dream I hold that no body know of)
푸른 손길로 나의 어깨를 다독여 (it extends my shoulder with blue helping hands)
.
지금은 가장 낮은 곳에서 (at this moment, from the lowest place)
눈물을 참고 있지만 (i am holding my tears, but)
나는 슬퍼하지 않아 (i am not sad)
.
눈물을 딛고 외로움을 견뎌 끝내 웃을 그 날을 위해 (i wipe my tears,bear the loneliness,for that day i’ll be laughing in the end)
포기하지 않아 (i am not giving up)
눈부시게 반짝거릴 날개로 (with a pair of brilliantly dazzling wings)
언젠간 나도 저 태양 너머 무지개를 찾아 갈거야 (one day, I too will cross the sun and find rainbow)
.
모든 것엔 기다림이 필요해 (everything requires some waiting)
그래 내겐 아름다운 꿈이 있잖아 (for I have a wonderful dream)
.
나의 꿈을 위해 내 모든 걸 다 걸을래 (i will do my all to fulfill my dream)
..
난 서두르지 않아 (i am not in any rush)
저 먼 곳의 꿈이라고 하여도 (even though my dream is in that place far away)
언젠간 분명 저 태양 너머 무지개에 다다를 꺼야 (obviously, one day, I will cross the sun and reach the rainbow)
.
The video below is of life performance, this song is immediately followed by Boohwal’s “The More I Love” (사랑할수록).
