Today, December 17 is our Lee Jae Jin’s birthday! 축하 합니다!! Happy 18th Birthday!

Hi Everyone,

How are you all doing? Have you finished watching “You’re Beautiful?” For the past few weeks, I was so addicted to the drama that I can’t wait for every Wednesday and Thursday. I am so sad now that it’s all over and I can’t see AN Jell anymore. I was also busy planning my trip to Taiwan to see FT Island concert. It’s crazy that the tickets are all sold out in an hour. I didn’t even get a chance to buy it since I don’t live in Taiwan and can’t get a hold of my friends there soon enough. But luckily, another friend helped me and I finally got a ticket to go. So I am sure I will post everything on this blog about the concert. I am also hoping that they will go to Hong Kong in February and I definitely want to be there as well. \(^.^)/

Anyway, that just explains why I haven’t had lesson 9 up till now. I had it translated but just didn’t have time to put all components of the lesson together. 🙂 But here you go, I hope all love the song like I do.

Here let’s have our “guest” introduce the song for us:

Here is a video of the song:

Lyrics:
하지말걸 그랬어 모른척 해버릴걸
(I shouldn’t have done it. I should do it like I didn’t know)

안보이는 것처럼 볼수없는 것처럼
(Like something I didn’t see, like something I cannot see)

널 아예 보지말걸 그랬나봐
(I guess I should not have looked at you at all)

도망칠걸 그랬어 못들은척 그럴걸
(I should have run away. I should have pretend that I could not hear)

듣지도 못하는척 들을 수 없는 것처럼 아예
(Like something I didn’t hear, like something I cannot hear.)

네 사랑 듣지 않을걸
(I shouldn’t have listened to love at all)

말도없이 사랑을 알게하고
(Without a word you let me know love)

말도없이 사랑을 내게 주고
(Without a word you gave me love)

숨결 하나조차 널 닮게 해놓고 이렇게 도망가니까
(Even one breathe is filled with you. This way you run away from me)

말도없이 사랑이 나를떠나
(Without a word love left me)

말도없이 사랑이 나를버려
(Without a word love ran away from me)

무슨말을 할지 다문 입이 혼자서 놀란것 같아
(What should I say? My closed mouth is surprised alone)

말도 없이 와서
(Come without a word)

왜이렇게 아픈지 왜 자꾸만 아픈지
(Why it hurts like this? Why it hurts over and over?)

널 볼수 없다는것 니가 없다는것 말고
(I can’t see you. Except for the fact that you are not here.)

모두 예전과 똑같은건데
(Everything is just the same as in the old times)

말도없이 사랑을 알게 하고
(Without a word you let me know love)

말도없이 사랑을 내게주고
(Without a word you gave me love)

숨결 하나조차 널 닮게 해놓고 이렇게 도망가니까
(Even one breathe is filled with you. This way you run away from me)

말도없이 사랑이 나를떠나
(Without a word love left me)

말도없이 사랑이 나를 버려
(Without a word love ran away from me)

무슨말을 할지 다문 입이 혼자서 놀란것 같아
(What should I say? My closed mouth is surprised alone)

말도 없이 와서
(Come without a word)

왜 이렇게 아픈지 왜 자꾸만 아픈지
(Why it hurts like this? Why it hurts again and again?)

널 볼수 없다는것 니가 없다는것 말고
(I can’t see you. Except for the fact that you are not here.)

모두 예전과 똑같은건데
(Everything is just the same as in the old times)

말도없이 사랑을 알게하고
(Without a word you let me know love)

말도없이 사랑을 내게주고
(Without a word you gave me love)

숨결 하나조차 널 닮게 해놓고 이렇게 도망가니까
(Even one breathe is filled with you. This way you run away from me)

말도없이 사랑이 나를떠나
(Without a word love left me)

말도없이 사랑이 나를버려
(Without a word love ran away from me)

무슨말을 할지 다문 입이 혼자서 놀란것 같아
(What should I say? My closed mouth is surprised alone)

말도없이 눈물이 흘러내려
(Without a word tears fall down)

말도없이 가슴이 무너져가
(Without a word my heart breaks)

말도없는 사랑을 기다리고
(Without a word I waited for love)

말도없는 사랑을 아파하고
(Without a word I love with pain)

넋이 나가버려 바보가 되버려 하늘만 보고 우니까
(My soul goes out. I become like a fool looking only at the sky and cry)

말도없이 이별이 나를 찾아
(Without a word farewell found me)

말도없이 이별이 내게와서
(Without a word farewell came to me)

준비도 못하고 너를 보내야하는 내맘이 놀란것 같아
(I can’t even prepare I had to send you away. My heart feels like a surprise.)

말도 없이 와서
(It comes without a word)

말노없이 왔다가
(While it comes without a word)

말도없이 떠나는
(It leaves without a word)

지나간 열병처럼 잠시 아프면 되나봐 자꾸 흉터만 남게되니까
(It’s like a fever goes by. I guess it’s going to be painful only for a while. Again and again only scars are left.)
