[NTS] The Story of Kim Tae Won

I just got my tax-card registered today – after living in Korea for 4 years!!!
Coincidentally I bumped into this video issued by the Korea National Tax Service.

“From a Guitarist, to National Grandma, to a Great Mentor”

I first held the guitar at 16.
I was more familiar being an alien than being loved.
I had to win my loneliness with one guitar at hand.
Guitar was my everything, and my only friend…

When I created the rock group Boohwal,
It felt as if I owned the world
I thought it was going to last forever
But the joy only lasted a moment, hardship came to follow
Sometimes conflict and separation,
Sometimes un-expected death…
Hardship came by me like a storm, I hung on to music only all that time
Because music is my dream, and my wings…

1986 Rain and Your Story (비와 당신의 이야기)
1987 Reminiscence III (회상 III)
1993 The More I Love (사랑할수록)
1997 Lonely Night
2002 Never Ending Story
2003 Beautiful Truth (아름다운 사실)
2005 Different Lane of Memory (추억이면)
2006 Love (사랑)
2009 Thought (생각이나)
2011 Secret (비밀)

Had my past days not full with frustration,
I wouldn’t be here today.

My dream is yet to finish
Just as your dreams

Students, wake the talent & the passion inside you!
Your “movie” is only starting now


End note: “We root for your dream”

드나드는 그리움 (Chronic Longing)

얼마뒤에 한 인터뷰에서 정동하님이 “태원형은 개인적으로 4집을 제일 좋한다고” 그러더라고요. 이유는 4집 때는 진짜 하고 싶었던 음악을 하기 때문에. 오랜만에 여유가 생겨서 한 곡을 추가할까 하면서 김태원님이 좋아하신 4집에서 골라왔습니다.

(오늘따라 한국말 하고 싶네 ㅋㅎ..^^*)

드나드는 그리움

(from Boohwal’s 4th album,  written and composed by Kim Tae Won)

언제쯤이면 나 묶어둔 시간들을 풀어둘까  (when will it be when the time binding me disentangle)
나 아닌 모두 아픔의 색을 (not me, but all colors of pain)
하나둘 지워가는데 (is disappearing one by one, but…)

언제쯤이면 나 연약한 눈물같은 것으로도 (when will it be when even with my weak tears)
순간 모든것 흘려보낼 수 있을까 (I can let everything go in an instant)

이젠 네게서 쉬고 싶어 그순간  (now, at that time when I want to rest from you)
그저 널 떠나야 한걸 (I should’ve just left)

* 저 어디선가 들려오면 나 젖어든 내안의 너 (if I heard it from somewhere, you’re soaking inside me)
잊으려하면 더 다가온 넌 내게로 드나드는 그리움 (you get closer when I try to forget, you’re my chronic longing)

This song is from Boohwal’s 4th album, which is Kim Tae Won’s personal favourite.
I feel like listening it today on a day I just feel like resting… ~^^
