드나드는 그리움 (Chronic Longing)

얼마뒤에 한 인터뷰에서 정동하님이 “태원형은 개인적으로 4집을 제일 좋한다고” 그러더라고요. 이유는 4집 때는 진짜 하고 싶었던 음악을 하기 때문에. 오랜만에 여유가 생겨서 한 곡을 추가할까 하면서 김태원님이 좋아하신 4집에서 골라왔습니다.

(오늘따라 한국말 하고 싶네 ㅋㅎ..^^*)

드나드는 그리움

(from Boohwal’s 4th album,  written and composed by Kim Tae Won)

언제쯤이면 나 묶어둔 시간들을 풀어둘까  (when will it be when the time binding me disentangle)
나 아닌 모두 아픔의 색을 (not me, but all colors of pain)
하나둘 지워가는데 (is disappearing one by one, but…)

언제쯤이면 나 연약한 눈물같은 것으로도 (when will it be when even with my weak tears)
순간 모든것 흘려보낼 수 있을까 (I can let everything go in an instant)

이젠 네게서 쉬고 싶어 그순간  (now, at that time when I want to rest from you)
그저 널 떠나야 한걸 (I should’ve just left)

* 저 어디선가 들려오면 나 젖어든 내안의 너 (if I heard it from somewhere, you’re soaking inside me)
잊으려하면 더 다가온 넌 내게로 드나드는 그리움 (you get closer when I try to forget, you’re my chronic longing)

This song is from Boohwal’s 4th album, which is Kim Tae Won’s personal favourite.
I feel like listening it today on a day I just feel like resting… ~^^

부활 5집 [Discovery of Fire]

Boohwal’s 5t album {불의 발견] Discovery of Fire, originally released in 1997. This album was recently re-produced, and may I say, with difficulty, after 14 years.

The image you see on the left is actually the new edition – the original one has the letters “부활 V 불의 발견” is white (or silver). Another different thing about this new edition is that, a special bonus track is inserted, no other than “Secret” (비밀) which was the first Collaboration Project Boohwal made with the original vocal for this 5th album, 박완규 (Park Wan-Gyu).

Of course, additional pages are also inserted in dedication to the Collaboration Song “Secret”, which hit the first place in many music charts in Korea as it was released~ this is important, coz the original Boohwal 5th album didn’t have anything to do with neither bassist Seo Jae-Hyuck nor drummer Chae-Jemin, who respectively joined Boohwal with the release of the 7th and 6th album.

The original members of Boohwal for the 5th album was bassist 정준교 (Jeong Jun-Gyo), drummer 정동철 (Jeong Dong-Cheol), guitarist Kim Tae Won, and vocalist Park Wan-Gyu. I got the picture on the right side from one Korean blogger, but it didn’t pin-point who’s who. Surely the guy in the center was Park Wan Gyu and Kim TaeWon’s on top-right. And 2 of the rest 3 have got to be Jeong Jun-Gyo and Jeong Dong-Cheol. Not sure who the 5th person is, but my guess is 최승찬 (Choi Seung-Chan) who used to play session on the keyboard for Boohwal from the 4th to 6th album.

This 5th album contains the songs:

1. Lonely Night
2. 슬픈 바램
3. 21c 불경기
4. 작은 너에게
5. 또 다른 미로
7. 믿음
8. 회상
9. 불의 발견 I
10. 불의 발견 II
11. 불의 발견 III

and ‘”비밀” (Secret) as special bonus track~

Personally, I find this album simply awesome. If you’re interested to hear a different color of Boohwal’s music, this 5th album will not disappoint you. For fans of hard-rock, I’d recommend 믿음 (belief). And 불의 발견 [Discovery of Fire] trilogy will present you with a strong instrumental synergy~ 🙂

*****************************************************************************************************

In additional note, please know that the 7th album [Color] is also being re-produced, and will be back in the market from 20 June 2011!! Don’t wait until it’s too late to get yours! 🙂

이성욱 오빠 축하 드리고요, 재혁오빠도 부활에 들어가셔서 첫 앨범인 만큼 많이 애를 썼었죠 ^^ 축하하고 감사합니다~ 🙂

[For My Father] 희망에게

The song was inserted in Boohwal’s 10th album, and it was written specially for the father of the writer. Kim Tae-Won’s father was lying sick when he was in the process of writing this song. The title, “희망에게” literally means “To Hope” but it’s retitled as “For My Father” in English. Kim Tae Won’s father is now well and recovered.

The song was composed by Kim Tae Won together with Chae Je Min, and the lyrics written by Kim Tae Won.

모든걸 나 포기할때쯤 그대가 저기 오네요
When I was to give up everything, there you came
있을수 없는 일들이 가끔 일어나지요
Things that wasn’t suppose to happen, they happen.. sometimes
어느땐 힘에겨워도 약해진내가
Even when I feel it’s so hard sometimes.. when I become weaker
나아질때까지 포기하지 마세요
Please don’t give up until you get better

.

그를 사랑해도 되나요
Is it okay if I love him?
모든걸 포기할때쯤
When he’s about to give up everything…
소리없이 지금 다가와
He’s getting closer without sound
날 안아주네요
And he held me..
기적이란 이름 약속하세요
Promise me a miracle
일어설테니
You will definitely stand (back) up
떠나가지말아요
Please don’t leave…

,

누군가가 빌어놓은 소원이 이뤄질테니
The wish that somebody requested will come true, clearly
잠이 든 아이 꿈속에 끝없이 눈이 내리듯
In the dream a child fallen asleep, it seems like snow is falling unstoppable
그리워하던 오늘이
Today that I longed for
지나면 내일이 오듯
If it passes, tomorrow is likely to come..
만나는 그 순간부터 사랑하게 된다는
From the moment we met, I came to love you

.
오늘이 다가올날에 만들어질 추억이면
If it’s a memory to be made on the day coming after today
이젠 난 너의 두 손을 놓아선 않된다는것
I can’t let go of both your hands right now
지금도 만나가겠지 누군가의 어제가 가고
We’ll still be seeing each other from now on, somebody left yesterday
하루가 지나는 일이 언제나 돌아오듯이
Things that passed within a day, will come back .. at any time
영원히
Forever..

Boohwal Collaboration Project +1 [Secret]

Yes, as I and many hard-core fans have predicted, the first partner in Boohwal’s Collaboration Project was Park Wan-Kyu (박완규). You shouldn’t be unfamiliar with him, since he was Boohwal’s vocalist for the 5th album. “Lonely Night,” was a song inserted in that album, that Kim Tae-Won specially made to match his voice. He literally owns the song with his high pitch voice and strong shouting~ This song, “Secret” (비밀) obviously is made for Park Wan-Kyu, too.

Check out this link to listen to other songs by Park Wan-Gyu.


The song “Secret” was officially released today, and you could buy the digital single through THIS LINK.
Or through I-Tunes (click here)~ ^^

비밀 (Secret)

빈 의자와 마주앉아서, 가끔 나 혼자서 말을 하고
Sitting across an empty chair, sometimes I speak by myself
언제부턴가 나도 모르는 사이, 자꾸 뒤돌아보게 되고
I don’t know when it started, I often look back

비밀처럼 계절이 흘러, 상처 들이 아물어 가면
Seasons changed like a secret, wounds heal

설레이던 너는 설레이던 너는, 한편의 시가 되고
Fluttered you, fluttered you, becomes a poem

너무나 보고싶어서 보고싶어져서, 가끔씩은 두눈을 감곤 해
I miss you so much, I come to miss you, sometimes I’d close both my eyes
너와 나 사랑을 하던 날들과 헤어지던 날을, 난 간직하게 돼
The days when you and I loved each other, the day when we broke up, became a memory

너무나 그리워져서 너무 그리워서, 너의 이름을 홀로 부르곤 해
I long for you, I long for you, your name like flows to my lips for me to call
너무 사랑해서 너무 사랑해서, 넌 내 안에 늘 있나봐~ 있나봐
I loved you so much, loved you so much, seems like you’re always inside of me~ you’re there

Expect the second Collaboration Project coming out this February! ~ ^^

Ow, and needless to say, the song is composed and written by Kim Tae-Won~ 🙂

[Boohwal Album] Live & Unplugged

So far I’ve been posting Boohwal ‘s songs and lyrics (and translation) and categorize them accordingly to the album they were first released in. Thus all those hit songs from the first album released in 1986 up to the 12th album released in 2010 are all spread in different categories. Most of you might only have access from the 10th album up, thus this “Live & Unplugged” album that compiles part of Boohwal’s best hit is a very much recommended option for you! ^_^

Boohwal members at the time the album was produced in 2006 was:

Kim Tae-Won…. 김태원 Accoustic Guitars @ Electric Guitars, Chorus, Vocal
Chae Jemin……. 채제민 Drums & Percussions, Chorus

8. 사랑할수록 (The more I love) [작사:김태원, 작곡:김태원]

Ah.. who wouldn’t know this song. One of Boohwal’s legendary song. Originally inserted in the 3rd album “Loss of Memory” (기억상실) in 1993. The original singer, Kim Jegi, passed away before he could even taste the loving response this song receives. Kim Tae-Won said that had he not passed away, he would still be Boohwal’s vocalist from that day on until the end.

.

A very much loved song, for many reasons, this song was remade in 2010 in Boohwal’s latest 12th album, part 2 (Retrospect II). You could find the lyrics and translation under “The More I Love” below the “3rd album” category.

9. 희야 (Heeya) [작사:양홍섭, 작곡:양홍섭]

The only song ever inserted in Boohwal’s album, that was not written nor composed by its incumbent member. This is also Boohwal’s debut song, the very first song they ever released, and made a big hit. Heeya was the title song of Boohwal’s 1st album “Rock Will Never Die” released in 1986.

1970

This is my current second favorite song by Boohwal. (It used to be my number one before I fell for the new song that’s to be released this Wednesday ^^)

1970, this song was released in the 9th album (2003). The original vocal was 정단 (Jeong Dan).

Composed by 채제민 (Chae Je-Min, drummer) and lyrics by 김태원 (Kim Tae-Won, guitarist/leader).

You can find the lyrics below the video. This video was a recorded session in MTV, from 2007. Vocal by 정동하. ^_^

1970

설레인 당첨금 백만원에 집 한채 사던 시절
The time when I lived in a house bought from winning a million (won^^) prize

차가운 저 아스팔트는 그땐 모래였었지
That cold asphalt (road) was just sand back then

매일 머물던 까만 운동화매장 앞에
In front of the deep-black shoe shore where I hung out everyday,

작은 소원을 빌어보던 아이였었지
(I) was the boy who had a small wish

저 하늘에 수많은 별이 보이고
So many stars seen on that sky

저녁 노을에 아버진 돌아오시네
In the red glow of the sunset, father came home

매일 영원히 파란하늘이 되고
Everyday, always, the sky becomes blue

낮게 날으면 제빈 비를 부르네
Flying low, a swallow calls (for) the rain

세 블록 넘어 매일 지나던 검은 연탄공장이
(I) pass three blocks, (and found)  the black poisonous-gas factory that I used to pass everyday

이젠 알수가 없는 회색빛 빌딩이겠지
Now, it must be (that) building with the unrecognizable ash color

매일 머물던 자전거가게 앞에서
In front of the bicycle store I used to stay everyday,

작은 소원을 빌어보던 아이였었지
(I) was the boy who had a small wish(I) was the boy who had a small wish

* Ref. *

저 하늘에 수많은 별이 보이고
So many stars seen on that sky

저녁 노을에 어머니 날 부르시네
In the red glow of the sunset, mother calls me (home)

매일 영원히 파란하늘이 되고
Everyday, always, the sky becomes blue

낮게 날으면 제빈 비를 비를 부르네
Flying low, a swallow calls (for) the rain.. the rain..
