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… ~^^

[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~ 🙂

시(時)쓰는 시인(時人)의 시(詩)

From Boohwal’s fourth album. The lyrics is so poetic is hard for me to understand, let alone translate this song. I actually drafted this almost a month ago, but finally have the to edit and post today. I’m gonna watch Boohwal’s recording session on M-Net today, btw~ (my first live since I started working^^)

This song is sung by Kim Tae-Won, composed and written by the maestro himself~ and Park Wan Gyu in one interview noted this song as his personal favourite among Boohwal’s many songs coz it soothes him~

시(時)쓰는 시인(時人)의 시(詩)

Poem of the people of that time that makes the  generation

이미 변해버린 너를 (you’ve already changed)
나 알게된건 너무 늦어버린 시간이었지 (I found it too late)
너 노래한 이별의 시에 (over the farewell poem that you sang)
내 젖은 눈물 감춘것 생각해 보면 잘한 일인걸 (maybe it was good that I couldn’t see it over my tears)

한번 마주쳐질 그날이 오면 순간 머물테지 (if one day we run into each other, I’ll stay at that moment for a while)
그 어쩔 수 없는 순간 나 어떤 모습일까 (on that unavoidable moment, I wonder how I’d look)

너 나를 떠난 이후로도 내 젖은 눈을 감출걸 (I probably couldn’t see, even after you leave, because of my wet eyes)
이제와 한번더 생각해 보네 (I come to think of it once again now)

한번 마주쳐질 그날이 오면 순간 머물테지 (if one day we run into each other, I’ll stay at that moment)
그 어쩔 수 없는 순간 나 어떤 모습일까 (at that unavoidable moment, I wonder how I’d look)

너 스칠곳 나 알아내어 널 기다린다 해도 (even if I wait at places you might flash by)
그 알수가 없는 지금도 모를 그 표정에 (I can’t imagine how I would look like even now)

내 시는 너의 시간의 시.그저 널 그린것들 (my poem is your poem of time. only the things you drew)
오래된 그림위에 적어놓은 시 (a poem written over an old picture)

[Collaboration Project + 2] 누구나 사랑을 한다 “Everybody Love”

[Boohwal Collaboration Project +2] is a genius project. Boohwal Entertainment had hinted that they will have four vocals for this second collaboration project, but never crossed my mind that they would collaborate 4 Boohwal former and current vocals. It’s simply genius!! In this song, you can hear Jeong Dong-Ha’s unique and powerful color, Lee Seong-Wook’s soft yet powerful voice, Jeong Dan’s rock flavor, and of course Park Wan Gyu’s strong high tone.

Again, the music video has been released now (look below), so please please please do not illegally download and share this song through sharing sites. Please use legal downloading sites such as bugs, m-netnaver or soribada.

Now, I would like to assume that you’re all familiar with the three invited vocalists whose voice are in this collaboration +2 project. 박완규 (Park Wan-Kyu) was Boohwal’s vocalist from 1996-1997, and he was the main spotlight in Boohwal’s 5th Album [Discovery of Fire]. He was also the first partner for Boohwal Collaboration Project +1, singing “비밀” (Secret). 이성욱 (Lee Seong-Wook) was Boohwal’s vocalist in 2000, at the release of the7th album “Color”. The 7th album was also the first album that Seo Jae-Hyuck took part in after joining Boohwal. 정단 (Jeong Dan) was the last vocalist of Boohwal before Jeong Dongha came along. He was the vocalist in Boohwal’s 9th album [Over the Rainbow], as well as the OST of the movie “A Moment to Remember” (머리속에 지우게) which Kim Tae Won worked on the music for.

Well, only if you’re interested, I’d like to know how many people could make up the different voices among these four vocalist. If you can answer correctly whose voice are in each of the reddened parts (if you don’t read Korean, just divide it by paragraph), I’ll give a special video present to the first three people who come up with correct answers. The time limit is Saturday 12 pm Korean time. 😉 [over]

Now, a little bit about the song. “누구나 사랑을 한다” was originally sung by a senior female Korean singer 정훈희 (Jeong Hoon-Hee). The song was of course written and composed by Kim Tae Won, and inserted in her “40th Anniversary Celebration” album in 2008. Now, enjoy the music video of “누구나 사랑을 한다” (Everybody Love)~ ^^

3-5-7-9

The music video started with flashes of “8.1.1” from Boohwal’s 3rd album which was a song dedicated to Kim Jegi (김재기)(the instrumental song starts with the spelling of his name), “Lonely Night” from Boohwal’s 5th album which was sung by Park Wan-Gyu, “얀녕” (Goodbye) from Boohwal’s 7th album sung by Lee Sung-Wook, and “아름다운 사실” (Beautiful Truth) from Boohwal’s 9th sung by Jeong Dan. I think the reason “8.1.1” was also inserted is symbolic, if Kim Jegi were still alive today, he would be part of this album too.

누구나 사랑을 한다 (Everybody Love)

.

지금 이 순간에도 어떤 이들은
사랑이라는 걸 만들어 가겠죠
이별이란 한 마디는 상상할 수 없는 채로

(Jeong Dong-Ha)
Now at this moment too, some people are in the process of loving,
even the word “separation” is unimaginable

누군가는 사랑을 하고, 누군가는 헤어진다는
알 수 없는 날이 다가오고 있는 걸
서로 모르는 시간에서

(Park Wan Kyu)
While there is someone loving, there is someone separating
That a day we couldn’t predict is coming, we have no knowledge of

내일을 알 수는 없겠죠
어쩌면이라고 예상 할 뿐이죠
늘 생각했던 게 늘 바래왔던 게
이뤄져 가는 거죠 이뤄져 온 거겠죠

(Lee Seong-Wook)
We don’t know what tomorrow holds, we can only make predictions
The things we think of, the thinks for we hope for, are in the process of coming true

누군가는 사랑을 하고, 누군가는 헤어진다는
알 수 없는 날이 다가오고 있는 걸
서로 모르는 시간에서

(Jeong Dan)
While there is someone loving, there is someone separating
That a day we couldn’t predict is coming, we have no knowledge of

내일을 알 수는 없겠죠
어쩌면이라고 예상 할 뿐이죠
늘 생각했던 게 늘 바래왔던 게
이뤄져 가는 거죠 이뤄져 온 거겠죠

(Jeong Dong-Ha)
We don’t know what tomorrow holds, we can only make predictions
The things we think of, the thinks for we hope for, are in the process of coming true

언젠간이란 아름다운 얘기
그 누군가의 기도로 이뤄져
예상할 수 없는 그 어느 날에
Always

(Jeong Dan)
A beautiful story for someday, coming true through somebody’s wish
On a day no body can predicts, always

내일을 알 수는 없겠죠
어쩌면이라고 예상 할 뿐이죠
늘 생각했던 게 늘 바래왔던 게
이뤄져 가는 거죠 이뤄져 온 거겠죠

(Lee Seong-Wook)
We don’t know what tomorrow holds, we can only make predictions
(Park Wan-Kyu)
The things we think of, the thinks for we hope for, are in the process of coming true

누구나 상상을 하겠죠
언젠간이라는 아름다운 얘길
견딜 수 없도록 힘겨운 날들이
지금의 너와 나를 만들어 왔던 거죠

(Together)
Everybody imagines, a beautiful story someday
The difficult days I can’t bear, you and I made it to this moment

누구나 상상을 하겠죠
언젠간이라는 아름다운 얘길
견딜 수 없도록 힘겨운 날들이
지금의 너와 나를

(Together)
Everybody imagines, a beautiful story someday
The difficult days I can’t bear, you and I

만들어 왔던 거죠

(Jeong Dan)
made it to this moment
