Hi all,

It’s been a while since we had the last lesson. I guess I must be busy with dramas and stuff. 🙂 I hope most of you are watching “You’re Beautiful.” In this lesson, we will have the band A.N. Jell to introduce their own song.

Here is a live version of Promise performed by A.N. Jell:

Here is the lyrics:

I will promise you

두눈엔 너만 담고 살아갈께
(From now on, I promise to live with my two eyes filled with only you)

I will promise you

두 팔은 널 안고 살아갈께
(From now on, I promise to live with my two arms holding you)

아침에 눈떠 잠든 순간까지 너하나만 그릴께
(In the morning when you wake up to the moment you fall asleep, I promise to picture only you)

사랑해 이 말 잊지마
(Don’t forget these words I love you)

I love you forever

더운 여름날엔 그늘이 되줄께
(In the hot summer days, I promise to become your shade)

비오는 날에는 우산이 되줄께
(In rainy days, I promise to become your umbrella)

걷다가 지칠 때엔 작은 의자도 되줄께
(In times when you walk while you feel tired, I promise to become your little chair)

웃을땐 니 기쁨 두배가 되게 함께 웃을께
(In times of laughter, I promise to laugh with you so your joy will become doubled)
눈물 흘릴땐 수건이 되 널 닦아줄께
(In times when your tears fall, I promise to become your towel to wipe your tears)

I will promise you

두눈엔 너만 담고 살아갈께
(From now on, I promise to live with my two eyes filled with only you)

I will promise you

두 팔은 널 안고 살아갈께
(From now on, I promise to live with my two arms holding you)

아침에 눈떠 잠든 순간까지 너하나만 그릴께
(In the morning when you wake up to the moment you fall asleep, I promise to picture only you)

사랑해 이 말 잊지마
(Don’t forget these words I love you)

I love you forever 

Vocabulary:
담다 – to fill

눈떠 – wake up
잠든 – fall asleep
그리다 – to picture

Grammar Points:
1. 아/어 가다 (아/어 오다):
This is using 가다 as a secondary verb. 아/어 가다 means from now on/in progress whereas 아/어 오다 means from before till now. Let look at some examples from the lyrics:

(From now on, I promise to live with my two eyes filled with only you)

b. 두 팔은 널 안고 살아갈께
(From now on, I promise to live with my two arms holding you)

More examples:
i. 이 지역에서 오랫동안 살아 왔어요
I have been living in this area for a long time.

2. action verb stem + ㄹ/을 께
This construction is to express a promise of what to do.

Examples are all over in the lyrics to fulfill the song name “Promise”
a. 더운 여름날엔 그늘이 되줄께
(In the hot summer days, I promise to become your shade)

b. 비오는 날에는 우산이 되줄께
(In rainy days, I promise to become your umbrella)

More examples:

    thanx! love it! ^^
    i only watched the drama until ep 3 coz i couldn’t find ep 4 with eng sub! T-T

    • mwgrace says:

      Where do you watch ep 3? They don’t have episode 4? Go to mysoju.com. They have it there! I start to really love this drama. I thought I would just like Hong Ki but I have to say, the characters in the drama is bringing out the best in the other two guys and I can see why people like them. By the end of the drama, maybe I will like them too! ha ha…

  2. natsuki376 says:

    well, i watched it from someone’s blog until ep 3 only. i tried to find ep 4 in youtube but it has no eng sub. mysoju.com huh? ok, i’ll watch it. thanx! ^^

    and hey, i hate to admit it, but i like that guy who hates go mi nam (is that the name of the lady?). he’s attitudes is freaking annoying but in a very funny and interesting way! >_<

    • mwgrace says:

      Yeah, you will like episode 4.

      I do agree. The lead guy who hates go mi name is pretty funny. I kind of start to like him too. He seems to be really tall and slender. I like that! 😛

  3. natsuki376 says:

    yeah, i like it. ^^
    BUT, ep 5 is even funnier! due to my usual clumsiness, i accidentally missed the last part of the story! argh!
    *patiently waiting*
    noooo!!! internet connection here is sucks! there’s no way i can watch it. T-T
    guess i have to watch it at my faculty tomorrow!

  4. natsuki376 says:

    and, taekyung SMILES brightly in ep 5!!!
    *melting*

  5. natsuki376 says:

    jolie huh? ^^
    i prefer to be mi nam so that i can make taekyung mad at me and force him to smile! LOL

    • mwgrace says:

      ha ha…If you are Mi Nam, then you are not allowed to get close to me because my “master” does not like it when you get close to me. 😛

      Can’t wait till episode 6! I am so addicted. The drama is so funny!

  6. natsuki376 says:

    really? but you have to remember that your ‘master’ has a mix feeling bout ‘me’. LOL

    ep 6 is out already!
    the funniest part for me would definitely be during the breakfast when taekyung was ‘molested’ by that auntie! their expressions was priceless! ^o^

    • mwgrace says:

      Yeah, I don’t know how but my ‘master’ seems to be gay at this point. ha ha… It’s funny how at least the other two like Mi Nam ’cause they know she is a girl. However, my ‘master’ likes her because she is a ‘guy’. That’s very concerning to me. 😛

      I watched ep. 6. I was so mad when Shin Woo asked Mi Nam to turn around at Myeong Dong so she could see her and she looked at everywhere but directly behind her. It really doesn’t make sense. It’s not like he was totally blocked by the couple. Anyway, I guess I can’t stand he saw her looking back and she didn’t see her, he won’t walk two steps just to say hi to her. He came a long way to do all those things already. Man, can’t stand guys like that. That’s the reason why he lose to TaeKyung. 🙂 But anyway, at the end of this episode, TaeKyung is with fake fairy so let’s see what’s happening next.

      I think it’s funny that the auntie ‘molested’ Taekyung. I guess you can do whatever you want to a younger person when you are older. haha…. 😛

  7. natsuki376 says:

    really? then i guess you’re older enough to molest them already! hahaha! (p/s: don’t touch my taekyung!)

    yeah, it’s too ridiculous to think that she can’t see him instantly when she turned around. well, it’s a drama. these kind of things happened all the time. the more we questions about something, the more it will become complicated and ridiculous. LOL

    *sigh* seeing them reminds me of my situations nowadays. love…maybe it’s not something i should think about rite now.

    FT Triple’s mv is out already. have you watch it? i’m going to watch it after this!

    (can i have your email? who knows we can chat for hours after this!)

    • mwgrace says:

      I think I am definitely old enough to molest them(them? more than one? yeah, if I am doing one, might as well do all :-P) Ok, I think we have to take this conversation offline as we might have some juniors here. haha… Everybody, I was just kidding.

      Yeah, only in drama that stupid things like that happens. Well, hopefully your real life love situation is much better than this. 🙂 Yeah, only think about dating after you graduated from college, ok? Oops.. Sorry, that’s just for Asians! 😛

      I know the Triple’s MV is out. I haven’t watch it yet but I will. Should I post it here?

      I will email you with my email, ok?

  8. natsuki376 says:

    LOL. you should not waste your the opportunity to molest them! ok, i agree we have to talk about molesting them in private. ^-^

    what? dating after graduation? that’s about 3 years!and I’m Asian too (what’s with the stereotype?I’m confused here). i don’t want to give them hope but situations gets complicated- ok, this one has to be talked in private.

    nah, it’s ok. i can watch it on youtube later. have to give my full attention to the exam (and i’m so have a problem in Functional Grammar and Linguistics course!). thanks anyway.

    you have my email address?

    • mwgrace says:

      Yeah, we have so much we have to talk in private. I email you last night. Did you get it? Isn’t your email with yahoo? 😛

      You know how Asians parents always don’t want their kids to date while they are studying. So if you wait till you graduated, your parents will not say anything. ha ha… Aren’t your parents like that? If they are Asian, they probably are like that. 🙂 If you want love advise, we will have to talk in private. ha ha… What functional grammar are you studying? English or Korean?

      I already watch the MV of FT Triple. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how well Jaejin can sing. I think it’s pretty good. It’s a very different feel from FT Island. I was thinking of posting the video here. 🙂

  9. natsuki376 says:

    sorry, i just checked my mailbox. yeah, i got your mail. (replying your mail and replying in this blog at the same time)

    well, my parents did say not having a boyfriend during my school years. but now i’m 21, graduated from school (but not college) and my parents are cool with it. as long as i know how to behave and not to do inappropriate things. guess you’re right about Asian parents. LOL

    did the other two sing in the mv?
    natsuki is trying hard not to surf the net for more than 1 hour nowadays. T-T
    yeah, you can post it here. good idea! ^^

    • mwgrace says:

      Oh, since you past 21, you are good then. ha ha… I am sure they trust you and know that you will behave. So no worries over there. 🙂 Just don’t molest young boys, ok?

      I have put the MV on this blog here. I don’t think the other two sing in this song. But I don’t know if they will later. Let’s see.

      What do you usually surf on the web for? FT Island news? Or just Wonbin? 😉

  10. natsuki376 says:

    molest younger boys, my future students??? no, can’t do that. i’ll probably being kicked out of school and that’s the end of my career.but if it’s taekyung, then it’s a different story! LOL

    no, i prefer the other two not singing. i mean, if all the members are singing it will affect my mood & attitude towards the band. coz the main reason i love them in the first place is because they are real band, not boyband. if they turned to be boyband, then they are not that special to me anymore.and honestly, i don’t think singing is something the other 2 should do- their voices are not meant to sing. just let them do what they are really good at- playing guitar & drums. ^o^
    i promised to myself only to watch their mv after the exam so i’ll check it out on 13th nov, ok?

    the net huh? well, i check my mailbox(waiting for your mail =p ), reading some mangas, fs, your blog, my blog, new stuff on FTI, and newspapers i guess. i can hardly find anything new bout WB though. guess he’s busy with his study and career.
    but most of the time i search for good fanfic to read on -i LOVE to read!
