Best of K-Pop (Korean Pop)

Thanks to a recent popular Korean drama called “Smile, You” I came across the following track and it instantly became my favorite Korean track till date.  This is a song by Melo’ Breeze (멜로 브리즈) and is very apt for the drama, which reveals a story about two families who used to live at the opposite ends of the world, forced to come together by fate.  It details how the super rich family tries to make it, after going bankrupt, living in their former chauffeur’s (who is a grandpa) house following his rules. Check out the song below.

Just for the listening pleasure, the next song is Vis-à-vis, by the same band.

Good Day.

I Won’t Love Like a Fool…

What a wonderful creation … Its about love and breakups.

The comeback for the beautiful Beak Ji Yeoung after facing “near-extinction-experience” back in 2001.. Anyways hope you find the video good…

This is a part of the series with the best of Korean Music (personal opinion).

백지영 (Baek Ji Yeong) – 사랑 안해 (I Won’t Love)

그럴려고 그랬어 돌아가려고
I was going to go do it
너의 차가움엔 그래 다 이유 있었던거야
To return to your cold self, and there were reasons there too
나를 만지는 너의 손길 없어진 이제야 깨닫게 되었어
Your fingers that touched me became gone, I’ve come to understand
내맘 떠나간 것을…
That you have left my heart
설마 하는 그런 미련 때문에 그래도 나는 나를 위로해
Surely, because of this affection I have for you, I try to help myself
나 이제 이러는 내가 더 가여워 이제라도 널 지울꺼야 기억의 모두를
Now, I have become more pitiful, it’s time to erase you and all the memories

이제 다시 사랑안해 말하는 난 너와 같은 사람
Now, I won’t love again, What I’m saying is that,
다신 만날 수가 없어서 사랑할수 없어서
Because I can’t meet another person like you, I can’t love
바보처럼 사랑안해 말하는 넌 사랑한단
Like an idiot, I won’t love, You were the one who said “I Love You”
나를 잊길 바래 나를 지워줘
Please forget and erase me

바보처럼 몰랐어 너의 두사람
Like an idiot, I didn’t know that you were a couple
아직 기억하려던 그건 그래 다 욕심이야
As memory that hasn’t been placed, I knew everything was all greed
다짐했건만 매일 아침 눈을 떠 지나간 너에게 기도해
Because I can only reassure, Everyday, after I open my eyes, I pray for you
나를 잊진 말라고…
Please don’t forget me
제발 지금 내가 바라는 하나 내 얘기 너무 쉽게 하진마
Please, the only one thing that I want is for you to not speak so easily
차라리 나를 모른다고 말해줘
Maybe, its better to just say that you don’t know me
시간지나 알게 될거야 내 사랑의 가치를
As time passes, you’ll know the value of my love

이제 다시 사랑안해 말하는 난 너와 같은 사람
Now, I won’t love again, What I’m saying is that,
다신 만날 수가 없어서 사랑할수 없어서
Because I can’t meet another person like you, I can’t love
바보처럼 사랑안해 말하는 넌 사랑한단
Like an idiot, I won’t love, You were the one who said “I Love You”
나를 잊길 바래 나를 지워줘
Please forget and erase me

내가 없는 내가 아닌 그 자리에 사랑 채우진마(지우진마)
Without me, don’t love another who isn’t me
혹시 만날 수가 있다면 사랑할수 있다면
If I’m able to meet you, If I’m able to love you
아프잖아 사랑한 널 지켜보며
It’s going to be painful, and while I protect you, the one I love
사랑한단 그 말 한마디를 하진 못해서
“I Love You” was the one thing that I wasn’t able to say
