비와 당신의 이야기
사랑할수록
Never Ending Story
추억이면


작년 이날에 저의 첫 부활 공연에 가려고 준비하고 있었는데… 벌써 일년까지 부활과 함께 갈 수 있다는 걸 상상도 못 했네요.
부활을 사랑하는 마음을 담아서 이렇게 일년간 https://boohwal.wordpress.com을 완성하였씁니다.
가장 힘든 시기에 힘이 되어준 부활 오빠들, 마음속에서 늘 감사하고 존경하고 사랑합니다.
이제 저도 제 길로 걸어가야 할때가 왔네요.. 부활음악은 늘 제 배경으로 남아 있을거고 힘이 들때 기쁠 때 그리워하게 될거예요.
지금부터 예전처럼 많이 달리지 못 할 것 같지만, 사랑으로 늘 응원하는 펜이 될게요…

이 블로그를 통해서 부활이 더 세계적으로 알려질 수 있으면 좋겠고요… 언젠가 새글을 다시 올릴지도 모르지만, 지금 저는 물러나오겠습니다~ ^^
그리워하면, 언젠가 만나게 되는 ~~~ 그 날을 기대하겠습니다.
사랑합니다 ♡

Second 8.1.1.

8.1.1.

August 11th, the day Boohwal’s former vocalist, Kim Jae-Gi passed away 17 years ago.

The song was composed by Kim Tae-Won and released in that very 3rd album, which Kim Jae-Gi took part.

The second 8.1.1. was inserted in Boohwal’s 10th album, released in 2006.

8.1.1. opens with a spelling ㄱ, 이, ㅁ, ㅈ, 애. ㄱ,이.

When I realized it spelled 김재기 (Kim Jae-Gi), that’s how I realized the spellings in the Second 8.1.1. also meant something,

If you’ve got sensitive ears, you can probably can tell which Boohwal member pronounce each alphabet of  ㅊ,어,ㄴ,ㄱ,우,ㄱ – spelling 천국, which means “heaven”.

**ㅊ(ch), 어 (eo), ㄴ(n), ㄱ (g/k), 우 (“oo” as in boots), ㄱ (k) – read 천국 (cheonguk).

Clue: ㄴ was Seo Jae-Hyuck, the first ㄱ was Chae Jemin, and the last ㄱ was Kim Tae-Won.

And as I learned from one of Boohwal and Kim Tae-Won’s best fan (^^), the spellings in the first 8.1.1 was pronounced by no other than Kim Tae-Won’s own wife, Lee Hyun-Joo (이현주).

소나기

소나기 [Rain Shower] is one of Boohwal’s golden songs. In many occasions, Boohwal members were asked what their favorite song is among the many Boohwal’s songs. Most of the time, each member answer a song they personally wrote ^^;; One time, they were asked the song they’d like to hear when it rains. Chae Jemin and Kim Taewon answered this song simultaneously. Btw, the song is written and composed by Kim Tae-Won.

소나기 is a very special song, I think, because it has been sang since 1993, or over 17 years now. All Boohwal’s vocals sang this song, except for Lee Seung-Chul. And this song is also inserted in to five different albums. Let’s see…

부활 3집 [기억상실] Guitar: 김태원, Vocal: 김재기 -1993-

어느 단편소설속에 넌 떠오르지 (in a short novel’s episode, you came out)
표정없이 미소짓던 모습들이 (the look of you smiling with an empty expression)
그것은 눈부신 색으로 쓰여지다 (it was written in a dazzling color)
어느샌가 아쉬움으로 스쳐지났지 (it passed by sadly in a moment)
.
한참 피어나던 장면에서 넌 떠나가려하네 (after a while, you were about to leave an episode where you come back to life)
벌써부터 정해져 있던 얘기인 듯 (seemed like it was an already fixed story)
온통 푸른빛으로 그려지다 (your whole body where drawn in a blue light)
급히도 회색빛으로 지워지었지 (it was erased hurriedly with a gray light)

부활 Best [이솝의 붓] Guitar: 김태원, Bass: 정준교, Drum: 김성태, Vocal: 박완규 -1996-

어느새 너는 그렇게 멈추었나 (you somewhat paused before I knew it)
작은 시간에 세상을 많이도 적셨네 (you showered the world a lot in such a short time)
시작하는 듯 끝이나버린 (it seemed you were only starting, you were finished)
소설 속에 너무도 많은 걸 적었네 (in the novel, you wrote a lot of things)

P.S. Some people might like one or some of the vocals more than the others. I have my preferences as well for different songs. But please don’t post comments that undermine one of the other vocals.

부활 3집 [기억상실]

기억상실.
(Loss of Memory)

다림을 누른다는 건 지나간 황을 뛰어넘고자 행하는 처음이다.

Boohwal members: 김태원 (Kim Tae Won), 김재기 (Kim Je Gi)

~[later replaced by 김재희 (Kim Jae Hee) after the former passed away]

The album was released in 1993, 6 years after Boohwal’s first vocalist Lee Seung-Cheol left the band.
The only time Boohwal only had two members. Drummer and Bassist were additional musicians (session).

The album was a big success, the song “The More I Love” made a big hit. Sold out over 100,000 copies.

1. 소나기

2. 흑백영화

3. Loss of Memory

4. 8.1.1.

5. 사랑할수록

6.

7. 흐린 비가 내리며는

8. 그리움 그리운 그림

Top 3: 사랑할수록 (The More I Love)

사랑할수록 (Saranghalsurok) is one of Boohwal’s most legendary song. I personally didn’t like this song at first, maybe because of the extreme sadness that this song delivers. And in the original version, released in Boohwal 3rd album in 1993, sang by Kim Jegi (김재기), this song is sung in such… I dunno, it’s just very slow I didn’t feel any power in it. I liked it though when I heard Jeong Dong-Ha’s version of the song. The song is written by Kim Jegi and composed by Kim Tae-Won.

Enough about me though. This song marked the rebirth of Boohwal after being left by their first vocal after their debut. Kim Tae-Won went through extremely tough time after being left by Lee Seung-Cheol, especially because the latter gained even more fame that Kim Tae-Won himself who was the motor behind Boohwal.

Boohwal’s first album was released in 1986, the second followed in 1987. There was a six years dormant period until the 3rd album was released in 1993. Behind that album was Kim Jegi, Boohwal’s third vocalist who only stick with the team for a very short period of time. He passed away in a traffic accident just after recording several songs with Boohwal as demo tape. Kim Jegi’s voice was, however, very remarkable that the demo tape was eventually released to be in Boohwal’s third album. Kim Tae-Won personally have a soft spot on Kim Jegi that he once said if he could think of anyone he’d wish to live again, that person is Kim Jegi. Kim Jegi is always referred in many occasions by Kim Tae-Won, as the song “The More I Love” is referred many times by the other Boohwal members to be a song that they think made Boohwal the legend it is. Kim Tae-Won himself said that the 3rd album wouldn’t have existed had he not meet Kim Jegi.

So happens to be Kim Jegi’s younger brother, Kim Jae-Hee (김재희), was also a singer and he was also gifted with the wonderful voice his brother had. So Kim Jae-Hee recorded the rest of the songs in the 3rd album. The version of 사랑할수록 you heard(and saw) above was sung by Kim Jegi. You can also find a Kim Jae-Hee version of this song in the “Best 이솝의 붓” album released in 1996.

The one below is by Jeong Dong-Ha. This song was also remade and inserted in Boohwal’s latest album, Retrospect II, released this year. (Check out “How to get Boohwal’s CDs abroad” on top right)

사랑할수록
(The More I Love)


한참동안을 찾아가지 않은 저 언덕 너머 거리엔
(In the street over the hill I haven’t been to in a while)
오래전 그 모습 그대로 넌 서있을 것 같아
(It felt that you’ll be standing exactly as you stood there a long time ago)
.
내 기억 보다는 오래되버린 얘기지
(A story that is older than my memory)
널 보던 나의 그 모습
(The way I looked when staring at you)
이제는 내가 널 피하려고 하나 언젠가의 너처럼~
(Am I now trying to avoid you, as you did then)
이제 너에게 난 아픔이란걸 너를 사랑하면 할수록
(Now for you, that I am hurting, the more I love you)
멀리 떠나가도록 스치듯 시간의 흐름속에
(To go far away, into the flow of time as if only brushing by)
.
이제 지나간 기억이라고 떠나며 말하던 너에게
(Leaving me, you said it is a memory of the past, to you)
시간이 흘러 지날수록 너를 사랑하면 할수록…
(As the time flows by, the more that I love you)
너에게 난 아픔이었다는 걸 너를 사랑하면 할수록
(That I was hurting for you, the more that I love you)

무정블루스

무정블루스 was originally sung by Kang Seung-Mo (강승모), which was released in his second album titled “강승모 베스트 I” in 1984. The song is composed by 박건호 (Park Geon-Ho) and written by 김영광 (Kim Yeong-Gwang).
Why do I post this song? This is among 김태원‘s favorite, thus I’m publishing it on his birthday today ^_^
.

생신 축하 드려요, 태원오빠! ^-^ 올해도 많은 행복과 좋은 일만 펼치시기를 바랄게요..  ! 🙂


Not much of your taste? How about if it was sung by 태원오빠 himself? ^_^ Music by 부활 (Boohwal) and 나무자전거 (Tree Bicycle). The latter is a duo-band consist of 강인봉 (Kang In-Bong) and 김형섭 (Kim Hyeong-Seob).

This is also one of my personal favorites among Kim Tae-Won’s many performances, his voice fits the song and the melody just *perfect*. Plus, I like the way 재혁오빠 looked back to 제민오빠 by the end of the performance ^_^

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..
.
