부활 1집 [Rock Will Never Die]

Boohwal’s first album. Released in 1986. One unique thing about Boohwal, being a Korean band where rock doesn’t sell that much, they wrote and composed all of their songs. Except for this one album, which has 2 songs written and composed by non-band member. As hard as it was for a first step, for five young men in their early twenties and some even younger, their hard work finally paid off by the release of this album “Rock Will Never Die”.

Lead Guitar                 : Kim Tae-Won (김태원)
Second Guitar             : Lee Ji-Ung (이지웅)

비와당신의 이야기 (The Story of You and the Rain)

This was the very first song ever written by Kim Tae-Won when he was sitting in the second grade of high school. This is the story of a teenage boy losing his first love.

This song was released in Boohwal’s 1st album, “Rock Will Never Die,” released in 1986. Naturally, the original singer was Lee Seung-Chul. This song was the second track in the album.

This song is still very, very much, brought by the band in their live stage, usually as the closing song. Sometimes as anchor song. Anyways, it has to be at the end of the live concert ^^

Honestly, I never paid attention to the lyrics. I only like the part where Tae-Won Oppa sings. It just feels so powerful. Maybe because this is his story, that he gets to deliver that feeling in the accuracy and the exactness of the emotion.

Now, the following video is a recent version of this song. And as footnote, I could be found in the video if one looks carefully~and if one knows how I look like, of course (lol). It was shot on April 6th, 2010, and aired on EBS Space TV on May 7th, 2010.

비와 당신의 이야기
(The Story of You and the Rain)

아이가 눈이 오길 바라듯이 (as a child hoping for the snow to come)
비는 너를 그리워 하네~  (the rain says it misses you)
비의 낭만보다는~ 비의 따스함 보다~ (compared to the romanticism of the rain ~ compared to the warmth of the rain)
그날의 애절한 너를 잊지 못함 이기에~ (because I can’t forget the mournful you on that day)
당신은 나를 기억 해야 하네~ (you have to remember me)
항상 나를 슬프게 했지~  (you always made me sad)
나의 사랑스럽던 너의 눈가의 비들  (my cherished … rain at the corner of your eyes…)
그날의 애절한 너를 차마 볼수 없었던거야  (I can’t stand seeing the mournful you on that day)
*무척이나 울었네~  (I cried a lot)
비에 비 맞으며~  눈에 비 맞으며~  (when the rain falls on the rain~ when when the rain falls on the snow)
비속의 너를~ 희미하게 그리며  (you inside of the rain~ missing you feebly)
우리의 마지막 말을~ 너의 마지막 말을 기억 하네~  (our last words~ I remember your last words)
사랑해 사랑해 사랑해 (I love you, I love you, I love you)
사랑해 사랑해 사랑해 (I love you, I love you, I love you)
P.S. I forgot to mention that this song was also reproduced in Boohwal’s 8th album, released in 2002 – that’s when Lee Seung-Cheul returned to Boohwal just for this album. There’s no Boohwal’s album with Jeong Dong-Ha ‘s version of this song.

사랑아닌 친구

“사랑이란건” 홍보해주려고 며칠 글을 안 쓰려다 했는데 몸이 근질근질하네여..ㅋ
오늘도” 아름다운 사실” 올렸는데, 날짜 바꿔서 밑글로 등록했거든요.^^
“사랑아닌 친구” 이 노래 19일 공연전 찾았는데 되게 좋아요!^_^ 공연에 직접 들을 수 있으면 좋겠네요.^^
13집에 놓아주지 않으실래요? ㅎㅎ 암튼.. 많이 잊어진노래 같아서 윗글로 올립니다.. ^_^


This is one of Boohwals’ first songs, released in their first album in 1986. Consequently, the original vocal was Lee Seung-Cheul. But I think Jeong Dong-Ha’s voice match this song perfectly ^_^

The song was written and composed by 이지웅 (Lee Jee-Ung).

The video below is recorded from Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival 2009. First song is 1970 (see below “채제민”or “9th album”) followed by 사랑아닌친구. Lyrics below the video 🙂

사랑아닌 친구

(Friend, not Love)

너 항상 나보면 친구라 하지
Every time you meet me, you say (I’m a) friend
하지만 난 네가 그게 싫어
But I hate that
남들은 모두 다 사랑이라는데
Everybody else say love (to me)
왜 너만 항상 친구라 하나
Why do you always call me friend

넌 날 몰라~~~ 넌 날 몰라~~~
You don’t know me~~~you don’t know me

My search in naver resulted in the third part of the lyrics, but it’s not sung in the video:
사랑이라 물을래
I wanna stick to love
아니라면 어쩌나
But what if (she says) no?
설마설마 하며 털어놨더니
What if.. what if.. I finally told her
하는 말이 사랑 아닌 친구
She said friend, not love
A sad song yet fun, ain’t it ^_^

Boohwal’s debut song – Heeya

I think it only serves the band right if I start my posting with their very first song. Heeya (a girl’s name) was a hit song in 1985 (btw,  I was born in 1985..). In the original Boohwal’s first album, this song was sung by Lee Seung-Chul. Below I provide a link of Lee Seung-Chul & Boohwal 2002 Concert. You can see the drummer Chae Jemin and bassist Seo Jae-Hyuck (both blond :p) sitting in line together with Lee Seung-Chul and gitarist/leader Kim Tae-Won in the beginning of the video.

This song was written and composed by Yang Hong-Seob (양홍섭).


희야 날좀 바라봐
Heeya, look at me
너는 나를 좋아했잖아
You (used to) like me (don’t you)
너는 비록 싫다고 말해도 나는 너의 마음 알아
Even though you say you hate me, I know (what’s in) your heart
사랑한다 말하고 떠나면 나의 마음 아파할까봐
If you tell me you love me before you leave, I could be hurt
뒤돌아 울며 싫다고 말하는 너의 모습 너무나 슬퍼
When I look back, the way you look when you said you hate me was really sad
빗속을 울며 말없이 떠나던 너의 모습 너무나 슬퍼
In the midst of rain, you left without words. You looked so sad.
하얀 얼굴에 젖은 식어가는 너의 모습이
The way you look, your white face getting wet and cold
밤마다 꿈속에 남아 아직도 널 그리네
(it) sticks in my dreams every night, (it appears) I still miss you
희야 날좀 바라봐 오 희야 오 날좀봐
Heeya, look at me. Oh, Heeya, please look at me!
오 희야 희야 오 희야 오 희야
Oh Heeya, Heeya, Oh Heeya, Oh Heeya
오 나의 희야
Oh my Heeya

The second video is Boohwal’s performance in Pentaport Rock Camp 2009, the incumbent vocalist Jeong Dong-Ha singing “OZ” and “heeya” in rock version. (He also sings “heeya” in the ballad version, but this is one exceptional performance which I like so much).

A little bit about the song “OZ”.. Released in the 12th album (part 1) in 2009. Composed by bassist Seo Jae-Hyuck and written by Se0 Jae-Hyuck and Jeong Dong-Ha. Check out the “12th Album” category for lyrics and translation~^^
