[Kim Tae Won] Backpacking Song

I believe you’ve heard this sing from Qualification of Men last week, yes? I personally like the first version made by Kim Tae Won, Yang Junhyeok, and Lee Yunseok together in their camp in Karijini better~ the spontaneity was just amazing!!

The team has been back to Korea for a while now, and they’re recorded the song together~ enjoy! 🙂

배낭여행 (Backpacking)

by [Qualification of Men] members 

밤하늘의 별 섬세한 준혁이 (stars in the night sky, Dainty Junhyeok)
뜀뛰는 캉가루 숨 쉬는 바위 (jumping kangaroo, breathing stone)
거지왕 태원이 책만 읽는 윤석이 (Beggar King Taewon, Book-worm Yunseok)
담배를 끊어서 때깔좋은 경규형 (Quit smoking, better colored Kyunggyu-Hyeong)

바오밥앞에서 여권흘린 국진이  (Kukjin dropped his passport in front of Baobab)
못생긴 형빈이 비호감 전현무 (Ugly-looking Hyungbin, bad-impression Jeon Hyeon-Mu)
카리지니에서 물에 빠진 스펀지 (Sponge in the water in Karijini)
대구댁과 VJ 얼레리 꼴레리

한 장의 지도를 두 손에 들고서 (With a map in both hands)
끝없이 펼쳐진 지평선을 향해 (Towards the un-ending horizon)
서로가 다른 길을 걸어왔지만  (We’ve walked different roads til now)
형제로 만들어준 카리지니 (Karijini made us brothers)

(Harmonica)

한 장의 지도를 두 손에 들고서 (With a map in both hands)
끝없이 펼쳐진 지평선을 향해 (Towards the un-ending horizon)
서로가 다른 길을 걸어왔지만  (We’ve walked different roads til now)
형제로 만들어준 벙글벙글 (Bungle Bungle made us brothers)

여행을 떠나자 여행을 떠나보자 (Let’s go traveling, let’s go travelling)
모든 걸 던지고서 배낭 하나에 우리를 싣고 (Throw everything behind, load us in a backpack)
여행을 떠나자 여행을 떠나보자 (Let’s go traveling, let’s go travelling)
이제는 모두 잊고 저 별 하나에 내 맘을 싣고 (Forget everything now, carry my heart in that star)

여행을 떠나자 여행을 떠나보자 (Let’s go traveling, let’s go travelling)
모든 걸 던지고서 배낭 하나에 우리를 싣고 (Throw everything behind, load us in a backpack)
여행을 떠나자 여행을 떠나보자 (Let’s go traveling, let’s go travelling)
이제는 모두 잊고 저 별 하나에 내 맘을 싣고 (Forget everything now, carry my heart in that star)

[Paek Chunggang] Separation Becomes a Star

The final round of “Star Audition the Great Birth” didn’t have Kim Yuna, one of the mentors present, for she is still hospitalized for a nerve paralysis. Hope she gets well soon. Mentor Kim Tae Won, just arrived the day before from Australia for Qualification of Men’s recording, looked fresh and well.

Paek Chunggang, Chinese of Korean descent, although many admitted his talent, I don’t think most people would even imagine that he’d come out the number1 winner of “Star Audition”. In fact, no body would even imagine that it would have come down to Lee Tae Kwon and Paek Chunggang. Korea. The first season of “Star Audition the Great Birth” really was a victory to the dark horses.

Following Lee Tae-Kwon’s “Black and White Photograph”, please find below the song specially written for Paek Chunggang himself from the mentor Kim Tae-Won.

이별
(離別)이 별이 되나봐

작곡.사 김태원 

나와 헤어진 후에 널 생각하며 먼 곳을 홀로 보곤 해
언제부턴가 생긴 익숙해져버린 오랜 습관이지
(after separating from you, I often look at a faraway place when I think of you)
(a habit I come to get used to, don’t even remember when it started)

쉽게 잊혀지지도 다시 만날 수도 없단게 사실일까
마음속으로 항상 널 생각하면 만날 수 있을거야
(easily forgotten, cannot meet again, is it the truth?)
 (If I always think about you in my heart, I believe that I will met you one day)

너무 앞아, 내 가슴이
너에게  다가가려고 해봐도
(hurts so much, my heart)
(even if I try to get closer to you)

너무 멀어, 손 닿을 수 없기에~ 너를
홀로 간직해 가는 걸거야
(so far, you’re in a place I can’t reach)
(I’ll cherish you by myself)

가슴속에, 너무 앞아
더는 견딜 수가 없을까
(inside my heart, hurts so much)
(can I not stand it anymore?)

혹시 나를 기다려줄 수 있겠니
너를 만나러 갈테니까
(could you wait for me?)
(coz I’ll go to see you)

너무 앞아, 내 가슴이
너에게  다가가려고 해봐도
(hurts so much, my heart)
(even if I try to get closer to you)  

너무 멀어, 손 닿을 수 없기에~ 너를
홀로 간직해 가는 걸거야
(so far, you’re in a place I can’t reach)
(I’ll cherish you by myself)

가슴속에, 너무 앞아
더는 견딜 수가 없을까
(inside my heart, hurts so much)
(can I not stand it anymore?)

혹시 나를 기다려줄 수 있겠니
너를 만나러 그때 만나러 갈테니까
(could you wait for me?)
(I’ll go to see you, coz when the time comes I’ll go to see you)

[Lee Tae Kwon] Black and White Photograph

Yesterday was the final round of “Star Audition the Great Birth”, with two of Kim Tae Won’s mentees left as finalists. For the final stage, Kim Tae Won gave a special gift to each of Lee Tae Kwon (이태권) and Paek Chunggang (백청강) who are truly champions over their dreams. The songs, hopefully will be their glorious first step as professional singer.

Find Lee Tae Kwon’s “Black and White Photograph” below, including the scene when Kim Tae-Won told him that he wrote a song specially for him~^^

흑백사진 (Black and White Photograph) 

작사.곡 김태원

그대와 걸었던 길이죠 (the street I walked with you)
거리에 그대 향이 나요 (I can smell your scent from the street)
우리가 걸었던 그 길이 (the street we walked)
날 기억해줘서 (coz it remembers me)
생각 난거겠죠 (it comes to my mind)

가끔씩 떠오르는거겠죠 (it comes to my mind sometimes)
서로가 힘겨웠던 날과  (our difficult days, and)
너무 아름다웠던 그 얘기들이 (those beautiful stories)
잊혀져 갈쯔음 (when I’m about to forget them)

한장의 사진만 간직하는 거라면 (if I could treasure just one photograph)
그대가 담겨진 사진이겠죠 (it would be a picture with you in it)
난 기다렸었고 널 기다리던  (I waited, I waited for you)
그 아름다웠던 그림이 있는 사진  (a photograph with that beautiful picture in it)

한장의 사진만 간직하는 거라면 (if I could treasure just one photograph)
그대가 담겨진 사진이겠죠 (a picture with you in it)
난 기다렸었고 널 기다리던  (I waited, I waited for you)
그 아름다웠던 그림이 있는 사진 (a photograph with that beautiful picture in it)

나의 기억만 간직하는 거라면 (if my memory is the only thing I could treasure)
그대의 모습을 기억해야죠 (I should remember your look)
난 사랑했었고 널 사랑하던  (I loved, I loved you)
그 아름다웠던 너무 아름다웠던~ (that beautiful, very beautiful..)
