[Digital Single] Because I Love You “사랑해서 사랑해서”

Boohwal (부활) just released their version of the song “Because I Love You, Because I Love You” (사랑해서 사랑해서) today. As you might have all learned by now, the song was originally written by Kim Tae-Won (김태원) for the variety show “Men’s Qualification” (남자의 자격) for an amateur band mission.

Now, you can also enjoy Kim Tae-Won (김태원), Chae Jemin (채제민), Seo Jae-Hyuck (서재혁), and Jeong Dongha (정동하)’s version of the song for they’ve released the digital single today. And it just rose up to the top of a lot of music charts. In Daum Music, it has remained on the top spot for today.

You can watch Boohwal’s live performance on KBS 2’s program “Music Storage” (음악창고) that is scheduled to air tomorrow, September 8th, 2010, at 12.25 am. (For your record, I reported it on Aug 25th coz I went to the recording session). Boohwal will also appear on KBS Music Bank and perform the song live on September 10th, 2010.

I have actually uploaded the lyrics last May when 남자의 자격 first aired their performance in Boohwal’s March concert. But since today is the official day Boohwal releases the song, I’ll re-upload it ~ 🙂

Ow, btw, this is Boohwal’s first digital single, ever. Congratulations~!! ^-^

사랑해서 사랑해서

(because I love you, because I love you)


늘 거리를 혼자 걸었지 (I always walked the street alone)
곁에 누군가 있는 것처럼 (as if there’s someone next to me)
너무 오래된 기억이지만 (It’s an old memory, but)
항상 너에게 난 위로였어 (I was always a consolation for you)

늘 아픔을 숨겨왔었지  (I’d always hidden my pains…)
항상 내 곁에 있는 거라고 (you were always by my side)
너무 힘겨워 지쳐갈 쯤은 (when I’m getting exhausted for it is so hard)
다른 사랑이 다가온다는 (another love comes approaching)

다시 사랑을 하겠지 (I’ll love again, wouldn’t I)
많은 이별을 했기에 (coz I’ve been through many goodbyes)
한걸음 한걸음 (one step, one step)
힘겨운 시간이겠지만 (it’s gonna be a difficult time, but..)

이제 사랑이 오겠지 (Now love would come)
홀로 힘겨워 했기에 (coz I’d been so exhausted by myself)
한번더 한번더 (one more time, one more time)
사랑을 기다리는 날에 (the day when I wait for love)

늘 아픔을 숨겨왔었지 (I’d always hidden my pains…)
항상 내 곁에 있는 거라고 ( you were always beside me)
너무 힘들어 지쳐갈 쯤은 (when I’m getting exhausted for it is so hard)
다른 사랑이 다가온다는 (another love comes approaching)

새, 벽 [Bird, Wall]

새, 벽 (Bird, Wall) is the title of Boohwal’s 8th album released in 2002, as well as the first track in this album. The jacket says, “We get together to show how we resurrect again… We are going to be flying much higher though it’ll be harder and harder to find our days.” (yes, in English ^^)

I present you [새 벽] .. for Boohwal will always resurrect again, and fly even higher.. even pass the days you or I might even be there to witness…

This song is written and composed by Kim Tae-Won.

새가 날아오르는 머나먼 저 언덕에 (on that far away hill where a bird is flying up)
희망이라는 바람이 부네 (the wind called “hope” is blowing)
누군가 노을이 물든 저 길목을 걷겠지 (someone will walk that street faded by the sunset)
난 또 내일도 어제와 같은 꿈에 너와 머물겠지 (tomorrow, I’d also stayed with you in the same dream as yesterday)
언젠가 꿈속에 서로 만나듯이 (as when we meet in the dreams, someday)
저 바람을 타며 새가 날아가듯 (riding the wind, the bird is flying)
저 바다를 넘어 기찻길을 따라 새가 날아오르는 (crossing that sea, following the rail track, the rising bird)
하늘을 보라 커다란 날개를 펴고 가까이 가려해 (look at the sky, spread your wings wide, get closer)
우리가 살아온 날보다 내일이 더 길테니 (tomorrow is longer than the days we’ve lived)
나는 오늘도 어제와 같은 꿈에 너와 머물겠지 (today, I’d also stayed with you in the same dream as yesterday)
언젠가 꿈속에 서로 만나듯이 (as when we meet in the dreams, someday)
저 바람을 타며 새가 날아가듯 (riding the wind, the bird is flying)
저 바다를 넘어 기찻길을 따라 새가 날아오르는
하늘을 보라 커다란 날개를 펴고 가까이 가려해
우리가 살아온 날보다 내일이 더 길테니

Butterfly [나비]

Butterfly, from Boohwal’s 11th Album “Love”, released in 2006. Another song where you can hear the voice of Boohwal’s leader Kim Tae-Won. The first half up to “good bye” part is sung by Kim Tae-Won himself, and the latter half by Jeong Dong-Ha. The song is written and composed by Kim Tae-Won.

In one of the talk shows, I remember he told the story of writing this song. As you might already know, Kim Tae-Won lives in Korea while his wife lives in the Philippines, so they visit each other often. Although, Kim Tae-Won doesn’t like to see his wife off to the airport coz he thinks that’s too sad (oh, yes, he is a man of tears:). So one day, after saying good bye to her in his apartment, he sat alone and saw an insect flying in. He thought it was a butterfly and that’s how he was inspired to write this song. (but in the talk show we discovered that it was not at all a butterfly.. ^^;)

창을 열어 놓으면 나비가 들어오고 (if you let the windows open, butterfly will come in)
홀로이던 내 방이 순간 들이 되고 (I was alone in my room, suddenly there’s two of us)
언제부턴가 시작한 그림이 없는 종이에 (I don’t know since when, on a paper without any pictures on it)
그 무언가를 그리고 칠을 해 간다네 (drawing something, painting..)
난다..  난다..  난다 .. (flying… flying… flying…)
Good bye… Good bye… Good bye…
어느 작은 섬에서 홀로 등대를 켜고 (on a small island, turning on the lighthouse)
지나는 배를 멀리 보며 어떤 그리움을 지우려고 (looking at the passing ship from afar, trying to let go some yearning)
많이 생각이 나는 자꾸 생각이 나는 (comes to my mind a lot, comes to my mind often)
어떤 시간을 이젠 멀리 등대를 스치며 지나는 배처럼 (like the ship now far passing the lighthouse, one time)
보라빛이 물든 바다 (the sea faded by a purple light)
항상 굽이 다가올 차가운 바다지만 (although it’s a cold sea which bottom’s always coming closer)
사랑해요 사랑해요 나비가 날아가듯 (I love you, I love you, the butterfly seems like flying)
마치 바다 위로 나비가 날아가듯 (just happens the butterfly seems like flying above the sea)
저 바다로 (to that sea)

TBS Concert in Dream Forest

September 4th, 2010. My last concert as a “free soul” since I’m starting something new from next week.^^

Thanks to TBS, I got to see two concerts where they invite Boohwal two weeks in a row. The first one was “Happy Concert” on Aug 28th (sorry I don’t write any review on that^^;)

The spot is the Northern part of Seoul called the Dream Forest (북서울 꿈의 숲), just 15 minutes away from my place. This is the nearest I ever had to travel to watch Boohwal’s live stage. Which is of course, beyond awesome. Hoping to catch their rehearsal/sound check, I left home sometime before 4 pm despite the concert only began at 7 pm.

It’s a really nice place, and I had more than 30 minutes before Boohwal오빠들 made it into the scene 🙂

The rehearsal/sound check was the only time I got to see drummer Chae Jemin, for from where I sat in the front row he was perfectly covered by one of the beam lights…



They only did the sound check for less than 30 minutes.. and the staff didn’t allow us to get closer, though they promised the front row ^-^

Boohwal came out 4th, I so wanted to leave after their stage, but couldn’t coz they and their fans would look bad, plus I was in the front row thus the stuff would be really annoyed. Thus I stayed. They opened with Gabriel’s Oboe and Lonely Night, as usual. Followed with Donghwa (동화), The More I Love (사랑할수록), Never Ending Story, and ended with “Because I Love You” (사랑해서 사랑해서).
