You and I – IU

6 Mar

IU’s new album ‘Last Fantasy’ is the first full album in 2 years since her first album ‘Growing Up’, produced by Cho Young-Chul who gave birth to the “IU syndrome” last year.

The title song “You and I” is a work by composer Lee Min-Soo and lyricist Kim Ee-Na of “Good Day” with a somewhat mystic and peculiar concept of a teenage girl traveling through time to go into the future. Switching to and from the minor and major keys, the arrangement is noteworthy for its diverse and fantasy-like atmosphere using real sounds from instruments that are rarely used in K-pop, such as the harp and horn, and listeners may also come across IU’s more colorful vocal expressions.

In the music video for “You and I”, a girl travels in a time machine to meet her future boyfriend. The 19 year old IU lives with Hyunwoo — a boy who has fallen into deep sleep — in a workshop inside a clock tower inherited by her grandfather. IU does not leave his side and while waiting for him to wake up, decides to make a time machine to go meet him. Finally, the long-awaited moment arrives and she leaves for her time travel both afraid yet excited about meeting Hyunwoo but the two miss each other as Hyunwoo wakes up the moment he reaches age 20.
One can enjoy the minute details of the space within the huge clock tower where cogwheels are turning, including the vintage feel of the workshop and the fairytale-like story with the male protagonist waking up from his sleep when he reaches 20 as well as a time machine to travel into the future.

The whispered secrets as I look at the clock
ganjor-han ne mamsog-iyagi
The sincere story in my heart

It’s okay if I am hurt now
  nareul jechokhamyon halsurok joa
The more I am pushed, the better
 ne ireum bullojwo
Please call out my name
* son teumsero bichineun ne mam deulkilkka duryowo
I’m afraid my heart will be revealed in between my hands

My heart is overwhelmed, it’s sad

Please wait a bit more and wait for me
norang narangeun jigeum andweji
You and I, we can’t be together right now

I want to push on the clock even more but

In the future, which you will be in

Please call out my name

* Repeat

nun kkambakhamyon oreuni dwel goeyo

In a blink of an eye, I’ll be an adult

You’ll recognize me, won’t you?, You’ll remember me, won’t you?
geure gimyohetdon ai
Yes, i was that strange child
son teumsero bichineun ne moseup cham jota
I really like your image that shines in between my hands

I turn it with my fingertips – hey clock hand, please run

Run a little bit faster

I  close my eyes tightly and cast a spell

norang narangeun jogeum namatji
You and I, there’s only a little bit left

I don’t know when or what time

But in the future, which is where you will be
hoksi nega hemendamyon
If by any chance,  I get lost and wander,
noreur-arabol su itge
to help me recognize you,
ne ireumeul bullojw
Please call out my name

Good Day – IU

5 Mar

The timid confession of an 18 year old girl
“I like you… what can I do”
The third mini-album [REAL] of IU, one of the top K-pop solo female singers with her outstanding emotions and singing, has finally been released. The title song “Good Day” is another work by the outstanding team ‘composer Lee Min-Soo — lyricist Kim Ee-Na’.
The lyrics of the song portray a girl who is in love yet too shy to confess her feelings, expressing the sweetness and uneasiness of a girl’s first crush in a pure yet honest manner. No doubt IU’s mind-blowing vocals and her timid yet cute performance will make the hearts of all male fans race for her.

In the music video of “Good Day”, IU acts out the young girl, honestly depicting the excitement of a crush. The music video contains dramatic structures with lively touches, gaining attention as Chung Jae-Hyung makes his appearance as a music fairy who encourages IU.

TRANSLATION

Why is the sky so much more blue?
Why is the breeze so perfect today?
Pretending like I don’t know
Like I didn’t hear a thing, like I erased it
Should we start talking about something else?
Should we kiss so we can’t say anything?

My eyes fill with tears, so I lift my head up
I smile a little so they won’t fall
Why are you like this to me, what are you saying?
All the things we talked about go to the sky
The words I have never said
The words I didn’t know I’d say as I cried
I like you, oppa, what do I do?

Was my recent hairstyle change bad?
Did I wear the wrong clothes?
Still pretending like I don’t know
Like I don’t remember
Should I act as if nothing happened?
Should I just say that we should go out?

My eyes fill with tears, so I lift my head up
I smile a little so they won’t fall
Why are you like this to me, what are you saying?
All the things we talked about go to the sky
The words I have never said
The words I didn’t know I’d say as I cried
I like you, oppa, what do I do?

Don’t say those kind of sad things
While looking at me like this
Is it that I’m childish or a bit slow?
I can’t believe it

Even though I’m crying, I smile
I block your way and I just smile widely
Why am I being like this, do I not have any shame?
I fold my pride up neatly and throw it up to the sky
The words I have never said
The words I might never be able to say again
I like you, oppa, aigoo, one, two
I’m in my dream

(It’s too beautiful, beautiful day)
(Make it a good day)
(Just don’t make me cry)

Such a good day

dream high

4 Mar

I had been watching this series for 3 days, and loved it!! It was awesome hahaha really really love the songs in this film >w< as you can see Dream High is kind of musical series. It’s about the students in Kirin high school who have many dreams. The main role is Go Hyemi (Miss A Suzy), a talented girl who studied classical music. At first she hated Kirin Art high school, thought that only moron will attend that kind of school. Unfortunately, her father’s bussiness collapsed and she had to attend that school to pay her family debt. And then Hyun Shihyuk, nicknamed Jinguk (2PM Taecyeon), a son of minister before marriage. He’s Hyemi childhood friends. There’s also Song Samdong (Kim Soo Hyun) an innocent country boy who never leave his hometown decided to go to Seoul chasing his love-in-the-first-sight à Hyemi!!

Yeah there’re what so called triangle love, or maybe square love? As we count Yoon Baekhee (T-Ara Eunjung), the Hyemi-ppa (slave?). Hyemi’s best friend until the principal (Bae Yongjoon!! omoooo) chose her instead of the talented Hyemi to pass the audition. Later she became Hyemi’s rival.

Not forget to mention the milky couple!! Pilsuk (IU) and Jason (2PM Wooyoung) are match made in heaven. I love how Pilsuk worked very hard and how Jason treat her very well eventhough she was ugly and fat ❤ Milky couple hwaiting!!

Translation

Tokyo, Seoul, London, New York, the world, let’s freely drive tonight
Showing off my new style everywhere
I’ll show you something you’ve just never seen before
Hey, look this way be a little cautious!
So much flying by my left-hand side
I’m so fast

Mr. Taxi Taxi Taxi I’m going quickly quickly quickly
At this speed no one can catch me
Hey, can you even follow me?
Mr. Taxi Taxi Taxi I’m going quickly quickly quickly
I’m shining, but no one can touch me
Truly Supersonic ‘n hypertonic
I want you to steal me away, you take me right now
Mr. Taxi Taxi Taxi I’m going quickly quickly quickly
But, it won’t be that easy

The city lights are like shooting stars
Non-stop until the next destination
Leaving behind only the sound of the engine
Let’s meet again, say goodbye from behind
Hey, don’t look away, take a risk
The right-hand side is definitely the same
I’m so sure

Mr. Taxi Taxi Taxi I’m going quickly quickly quickly
At this speed no one can catch me

But, it won’t be that easy

One, two, three here we go

Freely going anywhere
Yes, even to the edge of the universe
It’s just like my wish
Why am I nervous?
And I don’t know why and I don’t know why (don’t know why)
You’ll follow me right?
I don’t wanna say goodbye, goodbye (goodbye, don’t wanna say goodbye)

Mr. Taxi Taxi Taxi I’m going quickly quickly quickly
