Trivia: Jeong Dong-Ha and Kim Tae-Won

If you read my posting on Boohwal’s appearance in the TV talk show “Nollowa,” you’d know that both Kim Tae-Won and Jeong Dong-Ha are.. “detailed” people. I wouldn’t say perfectionist, coz I don’t know how they are as a person…

The two appeared as guests in this radio session “Narusha’s Volume Up” a few days ago in a corner called “is it just me?” (나만 그런가요?” A listener sent a question whether it was only him(or her) who likes to keep the time up to the minute. Kim Tae-Won said that his wife always compliment his ramyon (noodles) for it taste just perfect. His secret is: he follows the instruction, word per word, including the length of time you should boil the water when you’re making ramyon. He put on a timer to keep the time! Jeong Dong-Ha said,”but don’t everybody do so?” Erm… no, most people wouldn’t keep a timer .. I guess..? Do you? ^^

Well, there it is, a trivial fact about Jeong Dong-Ha and Kim Tae-Won: they make the best ramyon coz they keep a timer when they’re making it. Kim Tae-Won, especially, puts much importance about punctuality. He could be pissed for an hour and don’t talk to anyone when they show up late. He requires people to come at least 10 minutes earlier when they have appointment with him. Whereas Jeong Dong-Ha, keeps the time up to the minute. Meaning he won’t come 10 minutes earlier, but he’ll get there at 00:00 sharp.. ^^

Now, I’d like to make a ramyon for myself… hm.. but it’s 10pm.. maybe I’ll just have some bread.. (^^)

김현식-비처럼음악처럼

정동하 claims this song to be among his favorite songs in his recent interview with Arirang TV. Today Boohwal is having a live performance in Masan, Kyeongsang Province, South Korea. Too bad it’s more than 4 hours bus ride from Seoul thus I can’t be there… coz today happens to be his birthday.. ^^

Thus all I can do is send him this song and wish him a happy birthday celebrated with hundreds of fans 🙂

동하오빠, 생일 축하해요~^^ 부활과 오래오래 활동하시고 더 멋진 뮤지션이 되세요~^-^

아리랑에 나왔을 때 김현식 씨의 비처럼음악처럼 즐겨부르다고 하길래 이렇게 올렸어요.. 슬픈노래지만, 즐겨 들으세요~^^

This was the title song of singer 김현식 (Kim Hyun-Sik)’s 3rd album released in 1986. He debut in 1980 as a member of the band “봄여름가을겨울” (Spring Summer Autumn Winter), and passed away in 1990.

비가 내리고 음악이 흐르면                      난 당신을 생각해요
당신이 떠나시던 그 밤에                          이렇게 비가 왔어요
비가 내리고 음악이 흐르면                      난 당신을 생각해요
당신이 떠나시던 그 밤에                          이렇게 비가 왔어요


난 오늘도 이 비를 맞으며                         하루를 그냥 보내요
오 아름다운 음악같은                               우리의 사랑의 이야기들은
흐르는 비처럼                                             너무 아프기 때문이죠 오


난 오늘도 이 비를 맞으며                         하루를 그냥 보내요
오 아름다운 음악같은                               우리의 사랑의 이야기들은
흐르는 비처럼                                             너무 아프기 때문이죠


오 그렇게 아픈 비가 왔어요                    오~ 오 오

OZ

Boohwal had just opened their new office and cafe, and I went there this Saturday. Just wanted to feel the atmosphere, but I found more to it than a cafe atmosphere. The full team was there, and I wasn’t prepared to meet them. Prepared? Yes, I need preparation.. -_-; (I hate myself, really). Anyway, my friends know me as .. well, not exactly fearless, but I ain’t shy or act stupid.. but apparently I do, in front of them.. So I couldn’t approach anyone, although some members who recognized me did say hi (thank you! ).. (I really hate myself right now)

So, I reminded myself to the lyrics of this song, OZ, which says “겁 많은 사자” (a fearful lion). ㅎㅎ So, here we go ^^

Follows is “OZ”,  lyrics by 서재혁 & 정동하, composed by 서재혁, the person I fear the most among any Boohwal members, for I fear I might act stupid in front of him, which I evidently do.. -_-;

눈이 먼 도로시 겁이 많은 사자 (in a far-away road, a fearful lion)
예상할수 없는 세상 (an un-imaginable world)
어느 한사람 사라진다 해도 (even if one person was gone)
세상은 돌아가겠지 (the world will keep on going)
그누구도 원하지 않았던 (that thing that no body wanted)
과거로 가는 타임머신 (a time machine to turn back time)
지금 이순간 뭔갈 원한다면 (now, at this moment, if you want something)
Change yourself!!
..
I got a rainbow!
세상을 향해 외쳐 (scream it to the world)
I got a rainbow!
나를 속일순 없어 (you can’t fool me)
Over the rainbow!
이제는 너를 던져 (this time I’ll throw you)
I got a rainbow!
지금 이순간 네겐 생각은 필요없어 (now, at this moment, I don’t need to think)
..
나를 깨우는 자명종 소리에 (the sound of the alarm that woke me up)
다시 시작되는 Cycle (a cycle that’s restarting again)
그누구 하나 사라진다 해도 (even if one person was gone)
세상은 돌아가겠지 (the world will keep on going)
..
어느새인가 기억속에 묻힌 (I don’t know when was it locked into my memories)
작아져만 가는 Rainbow (the rainbow that’s only becoming smaller)
지금 이순간 뭔갈 원한다면 (now, at this moment, if you want something)
Change yourself!!
..
***
..
달콤한 너의 말들.. (your sweet words)
날 유혹하는 눈빛.. (your eyes that seduced me)
그곳에 난 없어.. (I’m not there)
그곳에 난 없어!!! (I’m not there)
날 현혹시키던 너의 환상의 Deception (your deceptive illusion that dazzled me)
그곳에 난 없어 Say! Change myself!! (I’m not there Say! Change myself!)
.
I got a rainbow!
세상을 향해 외쳐
I got a rainbow!
나를 속일순 없어
Over the rainbow!
이제는 너를 던져
I got a rainbow!
지금 이순간 네겐
I got a rainbow!
I wanna rainbow
I got a rainbow!
I got a rainbow in my soul
Over the rainbow!
I wanna rainbow
I got a rainbow!
I got a rainbow in my soul~

Want more? Here’s one along with a discussion with the composer/writer..^^ (I’ll provide translation later if requested) (this is a radio talk-show, you won’t see any video)

Wonderful Days: Vocalist 정동하

I couldn’t take a lot of his pictures during the concert, being the vocalist he simply moves a lot.. ^^; So a lot of the work displayed here are credited to Boosamo members 🙂 Those that aren’t credited are my work (by wb).

Wonderful Days Concert 21.03.2010

during the "event" on Wonderful Days 21.03.2010

There are 2 ladies on the stage, actually (you can see the legs of the other one .. ^^;). I cut the picture coz the other lady’s face is clearly shown, I’m afraid it could be inconvenient for her privacy. On this event, Dong-Ha called 2 audiences to the stage, and sang “Love of My Life” in front of them. He also gave out child’s size T-shirt for each of them (why child’s size? Coz this is not officially Boohwal’s goodies. It was given by an artist that came the other day, and the T-Shirt was his son’s favorite or his business.. (?) I don’t really remember ^^;

As I wrote in the previous posting, he’s rather sick right now. There are lots of “get well” messages as well as sympathy messages both in Boosamo and Dongha Oppa’s fan cafe. Hope he gets well soon! Oppa, 화이팅! 빨리 회복하시고.. ^^
