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!

[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

안녕 (Good Bye)

안녕 (good  bye) is a song from Boohwal’s 7th album released in 2000. The original singer was Lee Seong-Uk, but you can also find this song in Boohwal Live & Unplugged album where it is sang by Jeong Dong-Ha.

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

Now, the video. I think this video is a BRILLIANT interpretation of the song. I would have never imagined that the girl left to become a nun. The video is just brilliant!

Plus of course Seo Jae-Hyuck looks sparkling here lol:D You’d also get a brief look of the drummer Kim Kwan-Jin who filled in the drummer position in this album when Chae Jemin Oppa wasn’t around.

안녕 (Good Bye)

너는 저기 있었지  (you were there)
많이 야윈 얼굴로  (with your face growing thinner than ever)
나에게로 미소지으며.. (smiling to me)
이제 생각해보면  (now if I think of it)
날 위해서였던 (what you did for me..)
너의 숨겨진 모습이였어 (the look that you used to hid)
.
비가 오고 있었지  (rain was pouring down)
내리는 저 비처럼  (just as that rain)
날 사랑해오던 그댈  (you, who loved me,..)
.
너를 떠나보내던  (I, who let you go..)
나의 젖은 모습이  (me, dripping wet..)
지금 저기에 있는거 같아  (seems like I’m standing over there)
.
안녕 그대.. (Goodbye, my dear)
널 사랑한 후에 (after loving you)
그 긴세월을 그리워했어 (I missed that long life time)
이제 다시는 널볼수없는 (I can’t see you again anymore now)
서로가 돼 온걸 모른체로  (not knowing that we are becoming each other’s …)

널 사랑한후에

안녕 그대.. (Goodbye, my dear)
이젠 전하고 싶어  (now I can tell you)
수많은 밤을 그리워했지만  (so many nights I missed you)
멀리 서로를 지켜줬기에  (because we protect (keep attention on) each other from afar)
아름다울수 있었다고  (it could be beautiful)

안녕 그대..
널 사랑한후에
그 긴세월을 그리워했어
이제 다시는 널 볼 수 없는
