비와 당신의 이야기
Never Ending Story

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 ♡

Spider Web (거미의 줄)

Boohwal’s 10th album is of course arguably one of Boohwal’s best album, which is probably why I’ve posted almost every song in that album. This song is particularly special, not because it is written and composed by Kim Tae-Won, also for the fact it was sung by the legend himself, but also the story behind it that delivers a message out of the writer’s own experience.

Two years ago, Kim Tae-Won told the story behind this song. A research on drug effects were conducted on spider. The spider effected by drugs built really thin spider web, narrow, unable to attract any flies, and finally die of starvation. The spider unaffected by anything builds a normal spider web

홀로 가느다란 이 줄위에
서있는 나는 누구와도 다른
Standing on this thin string, I am different from anybody else

나만의 장소로 나만의 시간에
The story of my own place, my own time

내가 살아온동안 TV로
힘이 된 얘기와 힘든 얘기들
Stories that made me stronger and difficult stories I heard on TV all my life

잠시 날 취하게 했을 뿐 매일 난
그대로 인걸
Makes me tipsy for a short while only, I’m still the same way as I am everyday

살아온 동안             my whole life
살아가는대로          the way of life
살아가는 시간에         the time
살아있는대로               life itself..

Boohwal Collaboration Concert + Yozoh [12.02.2011]

Tonight.. well it’s pass 12 am, so yesterday was likely my last Boohwal concert in Korea coz I’ll be leaving soon enough. Yesterday concert.. was literally the best… it’s definitely among the ones I’ll remember the most.. (there was my first concerts on March last year, EBS concert on April last year, festival in Ajou University and the Concert on May, the free concert on Namsan NTOK in the summer, Green Plugged also in May, Music Storage on my graduation day in August, TBS Concert in the Dream Forest, their appearance while judging for Office Workers Band .. there are just so many.. and I can still recall the details of each one…) I’ll miss them.. Literally, Boohwal could be the thing I’d miss the most about Korea. It’s been the most colorful year for me.. and all thanks to Boohwal…. 사랑합니다.

Okay… we’ll jump to the concert review now.. First, my seat was spot on, first line. IN FRONT!! I never got front seat before (they’re always sold out within 20 minutes the tickets were opened) but tonight, I was in front. The bassist Seo Jae-Hyuck stood right in front of me. *love love love* ^-^

Originally my seat was one of the purple squares, but latter on I got away with the front seat so I was sitting at the red circle. *A-W-E-S-O-M-E* (really funny that me and my friends came together but we sat separately tho^^;)

The concert started with Yozoh’s performance. I didn’t know any of her songs and I didn’t like any of her videos I found on youtube but Live, she’s different. She’s amazing. She has a nice color, and her music is the kind you’d hear when you just feel like relaxing. And the idea is also refreshing, I like the lyrics^^ Also, I loooove the guy who plays percussion for her~My eyes were mostly transfixed on him almost all the time: both because he’s awesome and he’s right in front of me ^^

The ambiance was very quiet though when she was on stage, I think that’s because she’s quite awkward (^^;) and also because of her music style. Jeong Dong-Ha came to sing duet for her song titled “우리는 선처럼 가만히 누워” (Let’s stay still lying down) – it was really eye-opening. Honestly, I’ve kinda started to take Dongha Oppa’s voice for granted coz I’m just soo used to it coz I always watch Boohwal live all the time. But his voice was really different – very.. soothing…  in this duet. Love it! And then they sung “Falling Slowly” in duet. Yozoh’s concert continues… She sings a lot of her own songs (which I heard for the first time) and one remake song from Boohwal’s 5th album titled “또 다른 미로” (Yet Another Labyrinth).

Next in line is the guest of the night, Park Wan Gyu, the first partner in this collaboration project^^ He sang “사랑한 후에” (After loving you), followed by “비밀” (Secret) in collaboration with Boohwal… and of course, followed with “Lonely Night” which he sung together with Jeong Dong-Ha^^

Follows was Boohwal’s concert.. they continued with 사랑해서 사랑해서 (Because I Love You), which was followed by introduction. I cut my recording here coz I worried they’d run out of  battery s0 I couldn’t exactly recall the titles of each songs.. T_T

They followed with 소나기 (Rain Shower), 생각이나 (Thought), 가능성 (Possibility) – with Yozoh, and my recording was cut again… -_-; Among other they sang (not in order) 사랑 (Love), a combined solo bass-drum-guitar which I missed recording (tell me how much I hate myself..), 사랑할수록 (The More I Love), 21C 불경기, 추억이면 (A Different Lane of Memory), and my friends.. who were sitting on the purple squares I told you previously were spotted by Seo Jae-Hyuck. How much I wished I was sitting next to her, yet also felt glad it wasn’t me on the spotlight.. lol ^^ Anyways… they continued with 너뿐이야 (Only You), 1970, Someday, and 비와 당신의 이야기” (The Story of You and the Rain) as the last songs.

They sung “회상 III” (Reminiscence III) and [“희야”(Heeya) – with Yozoh] for the first call for anchor, and “Never Ending Story” for the final anchor.

Ow, btw, if you follow [Star Audition] 위대한 탄생… I know who the 4 guys Kim Tae-Won chose to mentor already. And I must say… I figure.. except for one person unseen in the concert tonight.. I was kinda rooting for him besides from the guy I saw today. Niweis~ ^^

[Won Jun-Hee & Jeong Dong-Ha] Larva

The song was composed by “Grape” and lyrics written by Kang Eun-Gyeong. It is inserted in Won Jun-Hee’s single album “Return,” which was released in 2008. It was remade and released again in the form of digital single in May 2009, titled “Return Zero”.
In the music video below, you can also see glimpses of Kim Tae-Won and pianist Lee Hee-ah (이희아).
얼마나 먼 길이 될지 (how long a path)
그 누구도 내게 알려 주지 않지만 (even though nobody’s telling me)
가슴 속에 숨 쉬는 꿈은 (in my heart, a breathing dream)
푸른 빛으로 나의 발걸음을 이끌어 (leading my foot steps in blue light)
지금은 비록 보잘 것 없어 (there’s nothing I can show right now)
초라한 모습이지만 (i may look shabby, but)
나는 슬퍼하지 않아 (i am not sad)
어둠을 뚫고 아픔 속을 지나 날아오를 그 날을 위해 (pierce through the darkness, for that day I will fly up from the pain)
포기하지 않아 (i am not giving up)
눈부시게 반짝거릴 날개로 (with a pair of brilliantly dazzling wings)
언젠간 나도 저 태양 너머 무지개를 찾아 갈거야 (one day, I too will cross the sun and find rainbow)
모두가 날 외면하고 (everybody disregard me)
뒤돌아서 내게 손가락질 하지만 (even though they point their fingers behind my back)
남모르게 품어왔던 꿈은 (the dream I hold that no body know of)
푸른 손길로 나의 어깨를 다독여 (it extends my shoulder with blue helping hands)
지금은 가장 낮은 곳에서 (at this moment, from the lowest place)
눈물을 참고 있지만 (i am holding my tears, but)
나는 슬퍼하지 않아 (i am not sad)
눈물을 딛고 외로움을 견뎌 끝내 웃을 그 날을 위해 (i wipe my tears,bear the loneliness,for that day i’ll be laughing in the end)
포기하지 않아 (i am not giving up)
눈부시게 반짝거릴 날개로 (with a pair of brilliantly dazzling wings)
언젠간 나도 저 태양 너머 무지개를 찾아 갈거야 (one day, I too will cross the sun and find rainbow)
모든 것엔 기다림이 필요해 (everything requires some waiting)
그래 내겐 아름다운 꿈이 있잖아 (for I have a wonderful dream)
나의 꿈을 위해 내 모든 걸 다 걸을래 (i will do my all to fulfill my dream)
난 서두르지 않아 (i am not in any rush)
저 먼 곳의 꿈이라고 하여도 (even though my dream is in that place far away)
언젠간 분명 저 태양 너머 무지개에 다다를 꺼야 (obviously, one day, I will cross the sun and reach the rainbow)
The video below is of life performance, this song is immediately followed by Boohwal’s “The More I Love” (사랑할수록).

Hybrid MMORG “Argo”

“Argo” is a game about a natural resource called “어스듐” (Earthdium), which leads to the war between two tribes called “노블리언” (Noblian) and “플로레스라” (Floresslah). As a new futuristic game (MMORPG) “Argo” is having a pre-Opening Beta Test (Pre-OBT) from the 22nd of July until August 2nd.

The soundtrack for Argo is sung by Jeong Dong-Ha, and among the OST, and the song “세상위로(Above the World) that describes the story of this game is opened for public during the pre-OBT period. They also plan to release a mini album for Argo soundtrack.


눈을 감고 그려보던 세상이 있어
애기로만 전해 듣던 지상의 하늘
별을 어떤 빚일까
바다는 푸를까
내가 꿈구는 그곳일까

잠겨있던 알고의 문이 열리고
날 잡아 끄는 강한 바람의 느낌
절대 놓치지 않아 고귀한 생명의 애너지
모든 걸 이뤄낼 수 있는 힘

불타버린 세월을 숨긴 채
알 수 없는 운명 속의 우리들
더 이상의 후회는 없어
자유의 저 세상위로 날아가

잠겨있던 알고의 문이 열리고
날 잡아 끄는 강한 바람의 느낌
절대 놓치지 않아 고귀한 생명의 애너지
모든 걸 이뤄낼 수 있는 힘

삼켜버린 눈물의 갇힌 채
버려진 도시 속의 우리들
마지막 그 빚을 되 찾아
미래의 저 희망위로 날아가

어스듐 빚 나는 보석
그 모든 시작을 의미
그날을 잊지 못해
두렵지 않아
포기 할 순 없어

불타버린 세월을 숨긴 채
알 수 없는 운명 속의 우리들
더 이상의 후회는 없어
자유의 저 세상위로 날아가

정동하 [Paradise]

This is an old one. An OST song from MBC mini series “늑대” (Wolf), aired in 2006.

Jeong Dong-Ha sang the second entry in the OST, the song is titled “파라다이스” (Paradise). A good one. I think he sings just perfect here.

파라다이스 [Paradise]

My baby you 홀로 지친 날들 이젠 끝난 건가요 (my baby you, is my exhausting lonely days over now?)

영원한 Paradise 꿈만 같은 곳 (an eternal paradise, a place just as in dreams)
너와 함께 있다면 그래 여기가 천국일 꺼야 (when I’m with you, this is paradise)
믿을 꺼야 내 삶을 채워준 널 다신 널 놓진 않을 꺼야 (I’ll believe it, you complete my life, I won’t loose you again)
Baby you 그대 있기에 오늘도 이 길을 오르죠 (baby you, because of you, this path is also rising today)

그대 내 품에 안기어 눈감는 그날까지 (when I hold you in my arms, until the day I close my eyes)
두번 다시 이젠 놓지 않을게 (I’m not gonna loose you for the second time)
(Stand up) 둘이 걸어가요
