저 멀리 나뭇잎 사이로
I’m far between the leaves
다정한 햇살이 날 불러
The sweet sun calls me
눈부신 이 날에 그대와
On this dazzling day, with you
함께하는 우리의 노래
Together we sing our song

나른한 공기 바람결에
Surrounded by relaxing air; carried by the wind
따스한 온기 그대손길
You touch me warmly
풀냄새보다 더 싱그런
It’s more refreshing than the scent of the grass
그대와 그대 숨결
I breathe with you

물빛 하늘 구름 바다
Bright water, sky, cloud, sea
하얀 웃음 그대와 나
White, laughter, you and I
푸른 햇살 바람 향기
Blue sun, wind, scent
나의 사랑 나의 그대
My love, my you

Album: Robot
Lyrics: Lee Jong Hyun
Music: Lee Jong Hyun

Listen to my story.
I saw a falling star.
And I made a wish upon the tiny spark, then.
My heart belongs to you forever, forever more.
I hope my wish can be heard to the sky…

*この世界で 輝いてる // kono sekai de kagayaiteru
君と僕の話を 知ってる? // kimi to boku no hanashi wo shitteru?
変わらず そばにいてくれる // kawarazu sobani itekureru
君の心が 光らせている // kimi no kokoro ga hikaraseteiru
(Do you know the story of you and I,
glowing in this world?
Your steadfast heart illuminates,
staying by my side)

Hey, look at the night sky.
Do you know why that glitters?
Our minds become a star with one accord.
Glitter in the night sky. And like your mind, baby.
And it is shining somewhere tonight.

ずっと この一つの思い // zutto kono hitotsuno omoi
輝き続けるように // kagayakitsuzukeru youni
そう きっと 君と僕の思い // sou kitto kimi to boku no omoi
一つの星になるように // hitotsuno hoshi ni naru youni
(Always, the one thing on my mind
to continue to glow
Yes, surely, yours and my heart
to become one star)

I sing a song with all my heart my heart.

THESE DAYS

Lyrics by: Kosuke Oba
Music by: Lee Jonghyun
Arranged by: Suzuki “Daichi” Hideyuki

*  *  *

明日を拭ってしまいそうな 暗闇のなか 見えたもの
(asu wo nugutte shimai sou na kurayami no naka mieta mono)
 In the darkness, which could easily be wiped away (be forgotten) tomorrow, I saw something

そっと触れた頬 伝う涙
(sotto fureta hoho tsutau namida)
 The tears running down on the cheeks I softly touched

刻む時の色
(kizamu toki no iro)
The color (sense) of ticking time

そこに君がいた
(soko ni kimi ga ita)
You were there

あの日々の風は 君のかけら 胸に置いた
(ano hibi no kaze wa kimi no kakera mune ni oita)
 The wind of that time is a piece of you I put in my heart

I want, I want to stay alive

君と過ごした日々に
(kimi to sugoshita hibi ni)
In the days I spent with you

I’m walking to one side

二人の道 違う何かを 見ていたから
(futari no michi chigau nanika wo mite ita kara)
In our paths, We both were seeing…

OST ハチミツとクローバー (Honey and Clover)

[One of the best Japanese songs ever, so touching, especially when you relate it to the dorama Honey and Clover, whose story is about chasing your dream and friendship]

いつの日かまた会おうと手を振る 君の笑顔を永遠にやきつけた
itsu no hi ka mata aou to te wo furu, kimi no egao wo eien ni yakitsuketa
そうだねと答えた僕の顔は 上手に 上手に 笑えていたかな
“sou da ne?” to kotaeta boku no kao wa, jouzu ni, jouzu no, waraeteita kana

大好きと書いたボールはまだ渡せないまま
“daisuki” to kaita booru wa mada watasenai mama
僕の胸をゴロゴロ転がり くすぐったいんだ
boku no mune wo goro goro korogari kusuguttainda

このままじゃいられなくても これからに流されても
kono mama ja irarenakute mo, kore kara ni nagasarete mo
決して変わらない 決して汚せない ぼくらだけのキャンバス
keshite kawaranai, keshite yogosenai, bokura dake no kyanbasu

ごめんねと言った君の答えを 見つめて 探して 歩いていくから
“gomen, ne” to itta kimi no kotae wo, mitsumete sagashite, aruite iku kara

大好きと書いたボールの文字は薄れてくけど
“daisuki” to kaita booru no monji wa usureteiku kedo
放り投げる強さも 捨てるズルさも無くて
hourinageru tsuyosa mo suteruzurusa mo nakute

過ぎて行く時の中で 変わりゆく空の下で
sugite iku, toki no naka de, kawari yuku, sora no shita de
決して忘れない 決して解けない 絆がきっと強さになる
keshite wasurenai, keshite hodokenai, kizuna ga kitto, tsuyosa ni naru

雲の様にちぎれやすくて 虹の様につかめなくて
kumo no you ni, chigireyasukute, niji no you ni, tsukamenakute
決して戻れない 決して汚せない ぼくらの青 キャンバス

恋も夢も終電車もごちゃまぜ追いかけた
koi mo, yume mo, shuudensha mo, gochamaze oikaketa
君の手を握ると「痛い」と言った
kimi no te wo nigiru to “ittai” to itta
恋も夢も涙声も生きる全てだった
koi mo, yume mo, namidagoe mo, ikiru subete datta
君の目を見ていた 本当がいつも言えなくて…
kimi no me wo miteita hontou ga itsumo ienakute…

このままじゃいられなくても これからに流されても

決して変わらない 決して嘘じゃない 僕らが今出会えた事

Translation
One of these days when we’ll meet again I will wave my hand,
your smiling face will be forever burned in my mind.
“That’s it, eh?” was the response on my face,
I wonder if I can smile well and convincingly?

Although I still can’t hand over the ball with “I love you” written on it,
My heart scatters, tumbles, and tickles.

Even if things can’t remain like this, and are drifted away from here on,
It’ll never change, it’ll never be soiled, our only canvas.

Because I am looking, searching, and walking for the “sorry” uttered in your response.

Although the words “I love you” that were written on the ball are fading,
I have no strength to throw it away nor the will to cast it aside.

Within the passing time, underneath the ever-changing sky,
It’ll never be forgotten, it’ll never be parted, the bond will surely become stronger.

Scattered easily like the clouds, unreachable like a rainbow,
It’ll never return, it’ll never be soiled, our blue canvas.

Whether it is love, dream, or the last train, I ran after them in confusion.
When I grasped your hand, you said “it hurts”.
Whether it is love, dream, or the last train, they were all alive.
When I saw your eyes, it’s true that I’m always speechless.

Even if things can’t remain like this, and are drifted away from here on,
It’ll never change, it’ll never be a lie, the two of us were able to meet now.
As free as a bird, lonesome like the wind,
It’ll never return, it’ll never be soiled, the tears-covered canvas

‘Is debuting as a rookie now a right (decision)?’

I think many people can likely recall Juniel’s (19. Choi Junhee) first showcase. Name, appearance, voice, speech, laughter, here and there is lovely.  That day, the girl who was playing guitar by herself, captivated the audiences. In 2010, she won Japan audition program ‘Niji Iro Supernova’. In Japan, she also released 4 albums consisting of her own compositions. She gained a lot of experiences by doing live street performance and stage performance at live houses. Those are her big strengths.

Coming from FNC Entertainment who has a lot of successful senior singers, Juniel is not just another newcomer. She gained a lot of attention and received positive support from family member CNBLUE –music video cast, duet song – even prior to her Korea debut. After watching BoA’s documentary when she was at elementary school, she pursued a dream to become a…

I am not a graceful person and I just want to be good at something…

I am not a graceful person.
I am not a Sunday morning or a Friday sunset.
I am a Tuesday 2 am, I am gunshots muffled by a few city blocks, I am a broken window during February.
My bones crack on a nightly basis.
I fall from elegance with a dull thud, and I apologize for my awkward sadness.
I sometimes believe that I don’t belong around people, that I belong to all the leap days that didn’t happen.
The way the light and darkness mix under my skin has become a storm.
You don’t see the lightning, but you hear the echoes.

***

I just want to be good at something.
I want a dream I can actually follow.
A talent that could someday get me a job I love.
I don’t want to be a mediocre at everything.
But I am.

Somehow I’m amazed how come the words above suit me well. Maybe it means that I’m not alone.

[Review] Infinite – INFINITIZE

This is my first time reviewing an album. I’m not a music expert. I’m just a music listener but believe me I’m very selective. I don’t care about market trend. K-pop and American hip-hop… unfortunately I don’t really listen to both. In this era, I still have Belle and Sebastian and Switchfoot in my playlist. Yes, I listen to Korean music, but most of them come from Fluxus Music and Mint Paper.

My friends said it was such a phenomenon when I started going crazy over Infinite – a boy band. Maybe because of that I’m so tempting to review INFINITIZE. I warn you, this review is very subjective and very L-biased.

***

1. INFINITIZE (5/5)

A perfect intro! “We got the all the chance, we’ll infinitize it” part sounds like a welcome and introductory message to the album. It feels like they want to say, “Beware, in this album, we will fully unleash our potential.”

2. 추격자 (3/5)

Sounds so Infinite. No wonder it’s the title song. That’s one of the reason why I like this group, they have their own color and it’s very distinct-able. However, the song is not as kicking as Be Mine or Paradise. I don’t know what it is, but something is definitely missing. When I first listened to this song, I’m worried whether this song will do well on charts. Maybe it’s not their main purpose but I want them to ripe the fruit of their hard labor.  And I’m also slightly disappointed because L only have one line in this song. I repeat the song over and over again because I don’t wanna believe it. Haha.

3. Feel So Bad (2/5)

What I like from this song is it’s so Asian. The song is not really outstanding though. It sounds like a song that will appear as a backsound in a Korean drama when the characters are on their way to the countryside. It’s kind of the filler song of the album. It should be in track 4 or 5, I think. And L have more lines, yay!

4. 그 해 여름(5/5)

Totally my taste of song. It’s so refreshing and perfectly match with the title. I just love everything about this song, the melody, their voice… simply amazing. I even searched for the composer because I’m totally in love with this song. I really love Dongwoo and Seungyol’s parts, it’s give me this indescribable  vibe.  And of course L’s bridge and his high notes. I love it.

5. 눈물만 (5/5)

A touching fantasy ballad that makes me feel like in wonderland. It’s touchingly beautiful. There’s no vocal harmonization in this song, yet it’s so beautiful to listen to the members’ voice alternately. And yes I was disappointed that L only have one line. The best part of this song is Sunggyu’s voice and to be honest I personally prefer Sunggyu solo live version of this song.

6. 니가 좋다 (4/5)

I think the song is not outstanding in terms of quality but something in this song make me love it. Maybe it’s because the song use beautiful falsetto in the background and it can portray the excitement of someone who is in love well. I can listen to this song all day. And I love L pre-chorus parts, so energetic.

7. With… (5/5)

L’s verse, oh my god, it’s beautiful. It’s such a good decision to put his voice in the beginning of the song. It guides us well to a sweet chorus. I found the middle of the song is lack of something, but the nearer the song to the end, it becomes more beautiful, especially because I get to listen to Sunggyu and Woohyun voice alternately. Harmonization between Woohyun and Sunggyu is simply incredible

Average: (4/5)

Another great album from Infinite. If you used to overlook boy band quality, you should really try listen to this album.

Notes: I personally prefer Hoya and Dongwoo singing.

[Lyrics | Trans] FT Island – Satisfaction (Korean Ver.)

From FT Island – TWENTY (Japanese Album)

내가 찾는 행복은 어디에 있는걸까
Where should I search for the happiness?
내일의 바람에 몸을 싣고
My body is carried by tomorrow’s wind
모험은 시작됬어
The adventure has started

고요한 새벽에 흐르는 별빛들
The starlight radiates in the silent dawn
도시의 별빛은 하나둘 꺼져만가고
The city’s starlight goes off one by one
꿈에서 눈뜨면 더이상 잠이 오지를 않아
When I open my eyes in my dream, I can’t go back to sleep anymore
다가오는 미래를 바라본다
I look forward for my upcoming future

마법같은 도시를 떠나서
I leave the magical city
무지개 같은 삶을 그려봐
I try to sketch my life like a rainbow
혼잡한 머리의 새겨진 나의 열정이
My passion is engraved in my busy head
우주끝까지 다 가를수 있게
Until the end of the universe, I can get everything

내가찾는 행복은 어디에 있는걸까
Where should I search for happiness?
가슴속에 품은 꿈과 열정을
My obvious dream and passion in my heart
세상의 끝에서 뿌려보자
When the world ends, let’s scatter

내일의 바람에 몸을싣고
My body is carried by tomorrow’s wind
끝없는 여행을떠어나
To the journey that never ends
모험은 시작됬어
The adventure has started

세상에 끝에서 무엇을 찾을까
When the world ends, what should I search for?
내일의 바람과 시간에 파도속으로
Within the wave of tomorrow’s wind and time

자신과 맞서고 가슴으로 세상과 싸워봐
I cope with my heart and myself so I can fight the world
아름다운 여행의 시작이야
The begin of the beautiful journey

내가찾는 행복은 어디에 있는걸까
Where should I search for happiness?
가슴속에 품은 꿈과 열정을
My obvious dream and passion in my heart
세상의 끝에서 뿌려보자
When the world ends let’s scatter

내일의 바람에 몸을싣고
My body is carried by tomorrow’s wind
끝없는 여행을떠어나
To the journey that never ends
모험은 시작됬어
The adventure has started

무엇을찾고싶고 무엇을보고싶나
What is it that I want to find, what is it that I want to see
무엇을버려두고 무엇을얻고싶나
What is it that I want to abandon, what is is it that I want to get
소중한것들일수록 무관심해지는건
The more valuable the things are, seems like I am indifferent
커져가는후회들
My growing regret

내가찾는 행복은 어디에 있는걸까
Where should I search for happiness?
가슴속에 품은 꿈과 열정을
My obvious dream and passion in my heart
세상의 끝에서 뿌려보자
When the world ends, let’s scatter

내일의 바람에 몸을싣고
My body is carried by tomorrow’s wind
끝없는 여행을떠어나
To the journey that never ends
모험은 시작됬어
The adventure has started
여행이 끝나면
When the journey ends
난 니 곁에 있을꺼야
I will be by your side
