[Green Face] Youthful Beauty OST

As the title says, Jeong Dan sung one of the OST of the drama “동안 미녀” (Youthful Beauty). This song is the theme song of Choi Jin-Wook (starred by Choi Daniel) when he’s broken hearted. And if I remember correctly, this song was personally written by Jeong Dan himself ^^

Actually I just came back from his show case, and I think he just won a new fan in me~ ^^ He sung many songs from his solo albums, and duet with special guest Yang Jongmo the song Beautiful Truth from Boohwal’s 9th album and together with Yang and Son Jin-Young the song “아름다운 구속” by Kim Jong-Seo~ ^_^ He also sung his own song “Emerald Sea” from Boohwal 9th album 🙂

Green Face also shared the news about Lee Seong-Wook, saying that he’s gotten a lot better and we shouldn’t worry much, the surgery went successful. He said he’ll drag him out of the hospital if necessary to make sure he makes it to the concerts ^^ Now enjoy Jeong Dan’s song, which he also sung today~ ♥

사랑은 그리움의 친구입니다
(Love is a friend of longing)

나의 귓가에 들리네요 나의 두눈에 보이네요  (it’s heard in my ears, it’s seen in my two eyes)
나도 모르게 이길에 멈춰서네요 (didn’t realize I was stopping on this street)
함께 걷던 이길위에 오래된 그 편의점에  (that old convenience store on this street we walked together)
익숙한 노래가 들려 내맘을 자꾸 흔들죠  (heard a familiar song, swaying my heart)

아마도 사랑은 내겐 어려운가봐요  (maybe love is a difficult thing for me)
잊으려해도 지우려 해도 꼭 잡으려해도  (even if i try to forget, i try to erase, or when i try to hold on)
이별은 왜그리 많이 쉬운 건가요  (why does separation comes so easy)
내게로와 아픈 가슴에 그리움만 주고 가네요 (you only make my hurting heart miss you much and left)

나의 귓가에 들리네요 나의 두눈에 보이네요  (it’s heard in my ears, it’s seen in my two eyes)
나도 모르게 그대를 그려보네요 (didn’t realize I was drawing you)
함께 있던 그 가게에 오래된 그 편의점에 (that shop we went together, that old convenience store)
익숙한 향기가 흘러 네가 또 자꾸 생각나 (a familiar scent, making you come to mind)

아마도 사랑은 내겐 어려운가봐요 (maybe love is a difficult thing for me)
잊으려해도 지우려 해도 꼭 잡으려해도 (even if i try to forget, i try to erase, or when i try to hold on)
이별은 왜그리 많이 쉬운 건가요 (why does separation comes so easy)
내게로와 아픈 가슴에 그리움만 주고 가네요 (you only make my hurting heart miss you much and left)

차가운 바람이 내얼굴을 만져요 (cold wind touches my face)
사랑은 그리움으로 변해가요 (love turns into longing)
잠시 쉬어가면 좋을 텐데 왜그리 빨리 (i’d be better if I could take a short rest before moving on, why so fast)
도망치듯 달아나요 소리쳐봐도 (running away as if escaping, even if I scream)

아마도 사랑은 내겐 아닌가봐요 (maybe love is not for me)

사랑은 지워도 지울 수 없는 가봐요 (looks like you can’t erase love even if you try)
숨이 멎어도 눈이 멀어도 절대로 안돼요 (even if I stop breathing, you’re far from sight, I couldn’t)
그리움이 대신 오래된 친구처럼  (instead of longing, like an old friend)
또 오네요 내 가슴으로 멀어질 듯 다가 오네요 (here it comes again, coming closer as if my heart will move further)

Lee Seong-Wook – Traffic Accident

Boohwal previous vocal (7th album) Lee Seong Wook was hit by a taxi in a traffic accident in Yongin, Korea, at 2 am today (25 June 2011). He was immediately ran to a hospital in Seoul, during which he lost consciousness for a moment.

He’s passed critical status now but will go through fingers and shoulders surgery soon. For the moment, his future activities are on hold, until the results of the surgery is known.

I’ll keep updating his situation here. Please wish him to get well back soon!

부활 5집 [Discovery of Fire]

Boohwal’s 5t album {불의 발견] Discovery of Fire, originally released in 1997. This album was recently re-produced, and may I say, with difficulty, after 14 years.

The image you see on the left is actually the new edition – the original one has the letters “부활 V 불의 발견” is white (or silver). Another different thing about this new edition is that, a special bonus track is inserted, no other than “Secret” (비밀) which was the first Collaboration Project Boohwal made with the original vocal for this 5th album, 박완규 (Park Wan-Gyu).

Of course, additional pages are also inserted in dedication to the Collaboration Song “Secret”, which hit the first place in many music charts in Korea as it was released~ this is important, coz the original Boohwal 5th album didn’t have anything to do with neither bassist Seo Jae-Hyuck nor drummer Chae-Jemin, who respectively joined Boohwal with the release of the 7th and 6th album.

The original members of Boohwal for the 5th album was bassist 정준교 (Jeong Jun-Gyo), drummer 정동철 (Jeong Dong-Cheol), guitarist Kim Tae Won, and vocalist Park Wan-Gyu. I got the picture on the right side from one Korean blogger, but it didn’t pin-point who’s who. Surely the guy in the center was Park Wan Gyu and Kim TaeWon’s on top-right. And 2 of the rest 3 have got to be Jeong Jun-Gyo and Jeong Dong-Cheol. Not sure who the 5th person is, but my guess is 최승찬 (Choi Seung-Chan) who used to play session on the keyboard for Boohwal from the 4th to 6th album.

This 5th album contains the songs:

1. Lonely Night
2. 슬픈 바램
3. 21c 불경기
4. 작은 너에게
5. 또 다른 미로
7. 믿음
8. 회상
9. 불의 발견 I
10. 불의 발견 II
11. 불의 발견 III

and ‘”비밀” (Secret) as special bonus track~

Personally, I find this album simply awesome. If you’re interested to hear a different color of Boohwal’s music, this 5th album will not disappoint you. For fans of hard-rock, I’d recommend 믿음 (belief). And 불의 발견 [Discovery of Fire] trilogy will present you with a strong instrumental synergy~ 🙂


In additional note, please know that the 7th album [Color] is also being re-produced, and will be back in the market from 20 June 2011!! Don’t wait until it’s too late to get yours! 🙂

이성욱 오빠 축하 드리고요, 재혁오빠도 부활에 들어가셔서 첫 앨범인 만큼 많이 애를 썼었죠 ^^ 축하하고 감사합니다~ 🙂


[Boohwal LG Art Centre Concert] Day 2, Session 2

Actually I’ve decided not to post concert reports anymore. Among others, I don’t take pictures anymore during concert, coz I simply want to enjoy it instead of busying my hands with something – and without pictures, the post could be dull ;; Of course I could use pictures taken by others, which I would, but I prefer not to, really ^^

The reason I’m posting anyway despite I decided not to, well, I protected the post below this one for I want to keep it for my personal record – hell, it’s my blog anyhow! 🙂  But for the sake of this blog’s purpose itself, I’ll share the more general part of the concert with you.

Personally I find last night’s concert among the best and indefinitely the most “fun” I’ve been to.

Okay, those of you been with me since the beginning would know how fond am I of orderliness~ lol
So I came to the concert venue about 20 minutes before it started, got the tickets (my seat’s on 5th row~^^)
Bought Jeong Dan’s CD (which was produced by Boohwal Entertainment, btw, I might review him sometime:) and exchanged greetings with some staff who knows me. They’re friendly yesterday~ ^^
Got in, and saw one old acquaintance from Japan who came all the way just to watch Boohwal’s concert (isn’t she amazing?^^and thanks to her, I was encouraged to use my *extremely* broken Japanese for the first time in 8 years)

The concert probably started about 6 minutes later than 7 pm, which was sooner than I expected (Christmas Concert was, luckily, 10 minutes delayed, which allowed me time to breath coz I arrived late!! :p)

Anyways~ the opening song was different!! Oh, actually the opening started with this video… urm, I’m sorry but I gotta say I’m not a fan, I think it was cheesy ^^;; I know they worked hard for it, so I’ll appreciate it still~

First song was, I should’ve guessed, “Wonderful Days” theme song but they did some rock arrangement in the beginning it’s really cool! Followed with 가능성 (oh, love it, this song is always on top of my head.. anytime I’m out there in the spiritual world the first line that comes out of my mouth is 비가 오네… ^^), 너뿐이야, talk (introduction), 생각이나, followed by 아름다운 사실…

and Jeong Dan showed up!!!!! Singing 아름다운 사실 duet with Jeong Dongha!!! Oh oh oh, love it!! 🙂 I’m actually gonna watch a small showcase he’s having by the end of June, but honestly didn’t expect much, coz I don’t know his songs, and he’s just gonna sing 2 of Boohwal songs from the 9th album (아름다운 사실 and 에메랄드빛 바다, which he wrote). But I bought his CD today, and .. well, depending on my mood, I might stay to ask for autograph if possible that day (lol, yeah I know). Actually I ran into him by the elevator, not expecting him to remember when he sees me again, but at least I announced my nationality to him (yes,Dear, that’s my point!! kk) Anyways, back to the concert, Jeong Dan sung the title song of his newly released album, “호랑나비”.

Concert commences with 노을, 사랑, 흑백영화, 추억이면, which Kim Tae Won said will make a hit in ten years^^ (reflecting that “The Story of You and the Rain” despite released in 1985 made a hit after shortly sung by Sung Si-Kyung in a CF in 2003, “Never Ending Story” by Yun Sang-Hyun in a drama, etc~)

And.. what’s been a repertoire since Qualification of Men’s “Harmony”, Boohwal Jeong Dongha’s version of “Nella Fantasia”.
For those of you who don’t know,  “Nella Fantasia” is an Italian song (Guilia, help me! 🙂 which is the “lyrical version” of the instrumental “Gabriel’s Oboe” composed by Ennio Morricone. Kim Tae Won, a huge fan of Morricone, re-arranged “Gabriel’s Oboe” and insert the song “The Elephant Escapes” in Boohwal’s 10th album (2005). Coincidentally, Park Colleen, leading the Qualification of Men’s choir, chose “Nella Fantasia” as their main song. Ever since, this song has made an extremely, extremely, huge, widespread, hit in Korea. (The original version is sung by Sarah Brightman). Boohwal also showed “Nella Fantasia” on the last Christmas Concert (It was the first time I saw it, don’t remember if they had it in February concert). But the version from last night, was A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Seo Jaehyuck, Kim Tae Won, and Chae Jemin made the 2nd sound (sorry, not familiar with the technical terms).. oh it was simply amazing! I think I had my mouth opened  the whole time ^^;;;

That, and followed by 비밀 by no other than Park Wan Gyu~ ^^ He was really cheery last night, smiling all around and jumping all over (bet no body carried white balloons hahaha:) The song followed with Lonely Night~ ^^ Dongha sings the first part, second part and the rest duet with Park Wan Gyu.

Followed with 사랑해서 사랑해서… by which time I think Lee Seong-Wook and Jeong Dan also appeared on stage.

Starting from Park Wan-Gyu’s appearance, for me, the concert has been the most fun. They were all around the stage, jumping and smiling and laughing, joking, dramatic and funny~ oh sorry, you gotta be there to know what I mean >_<

After the song ends, guess what, Lee Tae Kwonand Paek Chunggang also appeared on stage~ ^^ They didn’t sing, Kim Tae Won mentor asked the audience to buy their CD when it comes out, and to come to their concerts to hear them sing~^^ The audience were crying to have them sing, but Seo Jaehyuck wittily said that the audience are being greedy not satisfied with 4 vocals on stage~^^

The concert then continues with 누구나 사랑을 한다~ after more intro on Lee Seong Wook~ ^^

Follows on, 슬픈 사슴 (love Kim Tae Won’s voice in this song!! ><) and 사랑할수록~ songs that reminded me of Kim Jegi (funny how Kim Jegi didn’t even sing 슬픈 사슴..but somewhat Kim Jegi also reminds me of my dear friend Bernadette whose my best-companion-ever to go to Boohwal concerts – miss you girl!! She loves Kim Jegi and 사랑할수록 so much she doesn’t even speak Korean:)

Next, rock and roll! 21C 불경기, and solo time!! I think it was the opening part of 불의 발견 I orII~ continued with Kim Tae Won’s guitar solo on Parisienne Walkways, Seo Jae-Hyuck’s bass solo, and Chae Jemin’s drum solo. And then, of course, 1970, and an opening to a song that sounds western…but turned out to be a trot song!!(남행열차인가..^^) Smart! Un-expected, nice! Loved it!:)

And…. a big hit these days, isn’t it, they sung a song of Seo Taeji’s”교실 이데아” (Classroom Idea). It’s really powerful I really love it!! Personally I don’t move much in Boohwal concert, but this one I’d probably looked like if I was in a trance ;; Awesome, awesome, awesome! Oh, and if you click the link on top, there’s a part of the song where someone’s screaming – well, singing (^^) in heavy-metal sound (i’m not sure how to express it), anyways, that was Seo Jae-Hyuck’s part last nite. I was… stunned!! Well, I know the guy’s got it, just didn’t expect to actually see it ~ lol Niweis, awesome, fantastic, powerful, I’m lovin’ it!;)

Continued with Someday~ smart arrangements ^^

And… they ended with the Story of You and theRain~~~ but of course, came back up stage following the call for anchor, they sung Heeya, in rock version!!, Never Ending Story, and 회상 III by Kim Tae Won.. so lovely…

As end-note, they said that Boohwal is the first rock band who ever performed their own concert in LG Art Center. And reflecting back, they never thought that they would have such a big concert again after 2002. But, they were wrong ^^

갈 길은 아직 멀어요. 부활 음악은 잘 알려지지 않은 것뿐이지 공감성은 분명 있고 여기서 수많은 외국팬들이 있는데 한국어도 모르면서 부활 음악의 감성을 느껴진다고 합니다. 갈 길은 멀어요. 부활 항상 위대하기를.. 순수하기를.. 아름다우기를… ^^ 

저 또한, 부활 아녔음 한국에 계속 있을 생각도 없었습니다. 늘 감사하고 있습니다.
