[기억이 부르는 날에] The Day When Memory Calls

Whenever I listen to Boohwal’s songs, especially ones written by Kim Tae-Won (as most are), I wonder about the story behind it. Kim Tae-Won always says that he only writes the truth, and the lyrics he writes always reflects his own experience. I’ve always liked this song.. but I never really focused on the lyrics.. Everytime I listen to this song, it always felt so painful… now as writing this post and translating the lyrics.. now I know why.. I wonder who’s story s held behind it…

The song is from Boohwal’s 4th album, which I call “Boohwal’s first formation”. Seo Jae-Hyuck and Chae Jemin has stayed with Boohwal for over 11 years now, and before they joined the formation there were Jeong Jun-Gyo and Kim Sung-Tae who stayed for 5 albums and 3 albums each. This 4th album was produced in Kim Tae-Won (김태원), Jeong Jun-Gyo (정준교), Kim Sung-Tae (김성태), and Kim Jae-Hee (김재희) formation.

가끔 너의 모습이 기억나는 날에
Sometimes on a day when you came to mind

우연히 마주친 널 떠올리려면
I remember how we accidentally met

넌 더 변하여져 날 알지 못하고
You changed and don’t recognize me

모르던이로 내곁을 지나던걸
You passed by me without knowing

가금 너의 기억이 날 부르던날에
Sometimes, on a day when memories of you calls me

지나치는 너의 변한 모습일 뿐
Just your changed look passing by me

차가운 모습의 너로 남겨 졌기에
That cold  reflection of you left in memory

널 더 그리우면 지내오던 기억이
When I miss you, the memory that comes to mind

수 많았던 슬픔이 서로 지어졌지만
We made each others sad a times

너로 참아내는 아픔을 나 배운걸
Thanks to you, I learn to hold back my pains..
