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)

흑백영화 (Black and White Movie)

Released in the 3rd album (1993), and remade in 12th album (part 1) last year. The original singer was either 김재기 (Kim Je-Gi) or his brother 김재희 (Kim Jae-Hee). The person who uploaded the video below claims 김재기 to be the singer. The remake in the 12th album was of course sang by 정동하 (Jeong Dong-Ha). This song was both written and composed by 김태원 (Kim Tae Won).

This video is the original version from Boohwal’s 3rd album.

흑백영화

저 아이들의 모습이.. 나에게는 사실
The look of those kids.. for me, actually..
지나버렸지만.. 아쉬운걸까..
it’s in the past… is it a pitty..
공을 주우러 오듯 아이들이 내게로 오면..
if they come to me to pick up the ball..
내가 왔던 지나온 길엔 나무들이 자라있을까..
the trees on the street I used to pass.. would they have grown..
.
흑백으로 된 영활 보고 싶었어..
I want to watch a black and white movie
가슴 조이며 바라보던..

마치 꿈속같은 모습이기에..
looks just as it was in a dream..
나의 어머니를 닮았어..
looks like my mother..


내가 왔던 지나온 길엔 나무들이 자라있을까..
the trees on the street I used to pass.. would they have grown..
.

생각이나 (Thought)

This is the title song for the first part of the 12th album, released in August 2009. I think this was the song that brought back Boohwal’s name into the spotlight of Korean music. (As I said, it’s because of Korea’s music industry is mostly dominated by girl/boybands with mini-skirts and sexy  outfit)

This song also won MNet’s Best Rock Song Award 2009. As this is a new song, the original vocal is 정동하 ^_^

I will edit this post again later, along with the translation of the lyrics..


생각이나 (Thought)

항상 난 생각이 나 너에게 기대였던 게
너는 아무 말 없이 나를 안고 있었고
그 땐 난 몰랐지만 넌 홀로 힘겨워하던
그 모습이 자꾸 생각이 나

아주 오랜 후에야 내가 알 수 있었던 건
나를 안고 있지만 너도 힘겨워 했지
항상 나에게 웃으며 넌 다가왔지만
나에게 항상 넌 기대고 싶었음을

꿈 속에선 보이나 봐 꿈이니까 만나나 봐
그리워서 너무 그리워 꿈 속에만 있는가 봐
힘겨워 했었던 날이 시간이 흘러간 후에
아름다운 너로 꿈 속에선 보이나 봐

아주 오랜 후에야 내가 알 수 있었던 건
나를 안고 있지만 너도 힘겨워 했지
항상 나에게 웃으며 넌 다가왔지만
나에게 항상 넌 기대고 싶었단 걸 몰랐기에

꿈속에선 보이나 봐 (꿈에서 보이나 봐)
꿈이니까 만나나 봐 (그래서 만나나 봐)
그리워서 너무 그리워 꿈 속에만 있는가 봐
힘겨워 했었던 날이 시간이 흘러간 후에
아름다운 너로 꿈 속에선 보이나 봐
나에게 넌 그런가 봐 (나에겐 그런가 봐)
잊혀질 수가 없나 봐 (잊을 수가 없나 봐)
사랑해서 사랑을 해서 그럴 수가 없나 봐
시간으로 시간으로 잊혀져 가는 거지만
아름다운 너로 꿈 속에선 보이나 봐
