I don’t have any classes since Saturday last week because of the monsoon rains and typhoon that hit the Philippines. I finished my school works(except for my Sociology of KPop Fans paper lol) so I just stay at home, watch Korean variety shows, listen to music and to abuse my twitter accounts ㅋㅋ. I can’t go anywhere to help in our school’s relief operations because I myself live in a flooded area! The weather got better today and I hope will see Mr. Sun later today or tomorrow.
Anyways, I kept on listening to different KPop songs and I had the urge to post my Top 5 Pick of the Week because the songs were awesome! Well, they are awesome in my taste and standards when it comes to music. I just want to share the top 5 most played song in my iTunes!
Top #5: 잘 있나요(Best Wishes to You) by The One (Gu Family Book OST Part 6)
Gu Family Book was a drama from MBC starring Lee Seunggi and Miss A’s Suzy. You’ll miss a good drama if you don’t watch this one! Aside from being a good drama, Gu Family Book has a really nice set of OSTs and 잘 있나요(Best Wishes to You) of The One was one of the best songs from the soundtrack album! After watching the drama, I kept on listening to this song because of the sad but nice lyrics and nice vocals of the artist The One. Choi Jinhyuk, an actor in the said drama did an acoustic version of this song and it was pretty good too!
Lyrics from the Song:
“내 눈물아 슬픈 추억아~ 보고 싶은 그런 사랑아~ (My tears, my sad memories, my love whom I miss)
언제나 같은 하늘 아래 그려 본다… 그래 나 이렇게 아픔에 살아 (I always draw you out from under the same sky Yes, I live in pain like this)” (engtrans: popgasa.com)
Top #4: 괜찮겠니? (Will you be okay/alright?) by 비스트(Beast)
Beast is definitely one of the best KPop boy group in the industry! I love the songs from their newest album How To Love especially “How to Love” and “괜찮겠니?” At first, I can’t decide which of the two songs should I include in this list but in the end I chose “괜찮겠니?” because of the lyrics of the refrain sang by Hyunseung and the rap part by Junhyung. This is the kind of song that I will listen to when its raining! I love the song How to Love too because the lyrics were awesome but I still chose this one to be included in the Top 5 ㅋㅋ
Lyrics from the rap part:
“Where are you going? Why you wanna go?
어딜 가려고 Oh, Oh 왜 가려고 (Where are you going oh why do you wanna go?)
그러다 끝내 울음이 터진 너 이런 너 보고 어떻게 널보낼 수 있겠어 (In the end, you start to cry – what am I supposed to do now? How can I let you go?)
많이 흐트러질 텐데 너 (You are going to fall apart)” (eng trans: beautifulsonglyrics.blogspot.com)
Top #3: 녹 (Rust) by 엠블랙(MBLAQ)
This song is quite an old MBLAQ song since it came from their first full length album. This one’s an oldie but goodie for MBLAQ fans! I stumbled upon this song because of the on-going idol drama The Dramatic. I wish they sing more ballad songs like this one. I know that MBLAQ’s vocals are not so superb unlike the other old and rookie groups but these boys got something unique in them. I started liking MBLAQ when I watched their Hello Baby season and they were just so adorable. The lyrics of 녹/Rust is kinda sad and that’s the reason why I liked it lol. I liked the chorus especially when it was sang by Lee Joon. Lee Joon is not the best singer but I liked his voice during the chorus.
“떠나가줘 날 날… 사랑하지마 날… 차라리 널 좋아할 남잘 만나 (Leave me, don’t love me, instead find someone who will love you)니가 떠나고 난 힘들고 지칠지 몰라… 어서 나를 잊고 살아줘 (After you leave, it might be hard and tiring for me, hurry, live on forgetting me)나를 찾지마… (don’t look for me..)” (engtrans: @aoistars – Absolute MBLAQ)
“내가 살아가는 이유 너 하나야 (The reason why I live is only you)내가 숨을 쉬는 이유 너 하나야 (The reason why I breath is only you)가슴이 터질것처럼 불러보는 한 사람 너야 (The person call out as if my heart will explode is only you)” (engtrans: me =D)
“심장은 멍이 들고, 온몸이 부서져도 (My heart is bruised and my body broke down)난 니가 있는 곳으로, 끝 없이 사랑을 찾아가~(I will go to where you are…endlessly, I will find love) “(engtrans: me =D)
