All For You – Cool (Lyrics)

I am going crazy over Reply 1997. And I am going crazier because they released a remake of Cool’s All For You!

This song is one of my favorites from Cool. It’s one of their slow songs. If  I am not mistaken it’s from their 5th album. Actually I like this song better than Aloha. I wanted to post this a long time ago, but there was no MV for this song, so I settled with posting Aloha. But as this song is getting more popular because of Reply 1997, I decided it’s time to post it.

Like I said there is no MV of this song, so I am settling for this live performance clip. I found better copies on naver but i don’t know how to post it here, so this youtube vid will do.

I really like hearing this song! It’s very sweet.. And it’s easy to sing a long with. I will not be putting a critic on this song, because no matter what someone says at the end I will still say I still love it!

Because it’s quite old, I could not find any good romanizations so I made on of my own. Please credit: chipskjaa@wordpress if you use it!  Thanks!

All For You  – Translation

Already it’s been a few days, but you don’t call
Do you know that in a while, it’s my birthday?
Thoughtlessly, time only passes,
Instead of hatred, with a worried heart,
I went to your house to see you,
And I saw you, who smiled for me

Honestly, I thought a lot
I can’t do anything for you.
Even though I’m not perfect, and I don’t have anything,
Will you accept me?

It’s only 4 U, just wanna be 4 U
You? You just have to stay by my side like always,
And even if I’m born again, I’ll only look up to you.
The future I will spend with you, just for you.

You might not know, but it was a bit hard,
Am I the one that matches with you?
Even though I’m not, and somebody else is,
I’ll throw away that thought. ]

It’s only 4 U,
Just wanna be 4 U
You? You just have to stay by my side like always,
And even if I’m born again, I’ll only look up to you. LOVE
In my little heart, oh love.

Even though I’m trapped in your scent forever,
I can be happy, just for you, just for you.
I can’t get everything in the world,
But I’ll promise this to you,
I’ll be the one made for you.
It’s only for you,

We can’t be happy forever, one day there will be pain,
But, if we love each other like now, and look up to each other,
There will be no problems.

All For You – Hangeul

벌써 며칠째 전화도 없는 너
얼마후면 나의 생일이란걸 아는지
눈치도 없이 시간은 자꾸만 흘러가고
난 미움보다 걱정스런 맘에
무작정 찾아간 너의 골목어귀에서
생각지 못한 웃으며 반기는 너를 봤어

사실은 말야 나 많이 고민했어
내게 아무것도 해줄 수 없는걸
아직 많이 모자라도 가진 것 없어도
이런 나라도 받아줄래

* 너를 위해서 너만을 위해서
난 세상 모든 걸 다 안겨 주진 못하지만
난 너에게만 이제 약속할께
오직 너를 위한 내가 될께

** It’s only for you
Just wanna be for you
넌 그렇게 지금 모습 그대로
내곁에 있으면되
난 다시태어나도 영원히 너만 바라볼게

영원히 너와 함께 한 미래 내곁에
있어준 너를 위해 너만을 위해

넌 모르지만 조금은 힘들었어
내게 어울리는 사람이 나인지
그가 내가아니라도 다른 누구라도
이젠 그런 마음 버릴래

Repeat * and **

Love 내 작은 맘속을 oh, love 니 향기로 채울래
그 속에 영원히 갇혀 버린데도
난 행복할 수 있도록

Repeat *

It’s all for you

영원히 행복할 수만은 없겟지
언젠가 아파할 날도 있겠지
하지만 지금처럼만 바로 지금처럼만
서로 사랑하면 아무런 문제없지
Uh uh it’s all for you

Seo In Guk and Eunji (A Pink) Remakes Cool’s All For You

I am getting addicted to the drama Reply 1997 (Answer Me 1997)! I can’t believe how good this drama is and how the writers were weaving the story of the main characters Yunjae and Shiwon..

Anyway, Seo In Guk and Jung Eunji (A Pink) have released a song for this drama (the OST is called Love Story). It’s a remake of Cool’s All For You.

The Song

When I saw the title of the song, I was like… wait a minute is this Cool’s song? And I was not mistaken! And how nice this remake is! It’s originally sang by group called Cool (the same group that sang Woman on the Beach). It’s one of my favorite Cool songs. It was one of their slow songs. Although Seo In Guk and Jung Eunji play the main characters in this drama, they are singers first before they became actors. So I am not surprised that they performed a good remake of the song.

I love their voices together. If you aren’t familiar with Eunji, she is actually the lead singer of the group A Pink. Also, she is the one who did a duet with Yoseob (Lovely Day). I think she has a really sweet voice. I liked her voice when she did that duet with Yoseob. It was a very cute and bubbly song. On the other hand, I love love love Seo Inguk. I’ve been impressed by him ever since he won Super Star K. He can really sing! And I like his voice. So add them both together and you get the picture why I like this song! Oh and did I mention the chemistry between them? They make watching Reply 1997 a very pleasant experience!

Oh, and I’ve read somewhere they will be releasing a second part for the finale… I can’t wait!! I love this couple!!!

The Video

This drama is making me crazy and seeing the scenes in the video is making me crazy! Ahaha… if you haven’t watched it there are a few spoilers. I super love this couple and I super love the way the writers are putting together the story of the drama. But I will save that for another post!

For the lyrics: please see this post..

Final Verdict: This remake was done beautifully. I think it’s the perfect song for the couple in the drama.

Rantings: Of New Kpop idol groups…

My students in Thailand love Kpop! And that is why I get along with most of them (because I am the teacher who adores Kpop!)

This is my first time really writing about what my day job is in my blog, though some people already know. Yes,  I am teaching here in Thailand. And my students are in middle school and high school. Anyway, like I said we get along pretty well because of Kpop. Most of them warm up toward me especially when they know their teacher goes gaga over Super Junior, Big Bang and 2NE1.

But something about what one student told me made me write this post..

My students know I write a blog as a hobby. I told them it’s because I like Kpop and because I want to practice writing. So I sometimes encourage them to check my blog once in a while just to practice their English.

But today, someone asked me.. “Teacher why is there no EXO article in your blog?”

I was suddenly shocked! I didn’t know what to say. I knew that student really liked them.. however I only know EXO by name (I know they released MAMA) but I don’t know anything about them! Come to think of it I have no clue about all the other recent debuts made in Kpop. I guess I am pretty old school.

In the past year, there were a lot of Kpop debuts. I don’t even know who the new girl groups are or who the new boybands are.  I knew something about EXO. But doesn’t everyone know about them. I remember thinking it was so crazy having lots and lots of teasers for a new boy group. But I never really paid attention to them. It’s not that I don’t like them it’s just that I can’t keep up! They have been debuting left and right that I don’t know who is who. And also I have a day job that I have to do so I can’t give it 100% of my time.

The last debuts that I really kept track were that of Teen Top, B1A4, and Infinite. And that was like so long ago! But I still do like these idol groups. But I think to me I am sticking out to the original idols. I don’t why but I guess I am one of those fans who grew up with the idol group who was popular during their time. Maybe this is also one of the reasons why I am not really welcoming the new debuts.

Also, my tastes in Korean music have evolved from just listening to pop music, to listening to the different Korean music genres. I tell you there are a lot, just that when we think of Korean music, we just associate it with Kpop. But the Korean music scene has lots more to offer like Hiphop – Yoon Mirae (Tasha), Tiger JK, Leessang, DJDOC – Ballads – Sung Sikyung, Hugak, 4Men, 10CM, Nell – Acoustic and Indie – Standing Egg and Peppertones, among others.

I have also started to listen to old Kpop songs.. actually I hear them most of the time in shows like Immortal Song 2 or I am a Singer. I like it and so I look for them. Most of them were released even before Kpop created a storm all over the world.

I guess because of these reasons, I never really paid attention to New Kpop idols.

So if you are wondering why EXO or VIXX or NU’EST or AOA or B.A.P doesn’t make it to my blog.. come back and read this post 🙂

Oh and to keep from hurting my student, I just said… I’m not really into them.. I’m still gaga over groups who debuted way way before them!

Turned Off the TV – Leessang (MV and lyrics)

I don’t know why I am listening to this song again because I know it was released last year. But I can’t seem to stop myself from listening.

It’s Turned Off the TV (TV를 껐네) of Leesang featuring Tasha, Kwon Jungyeol of 10CM.

The Song

This song was my favorite from last year’s Leesang album AsuRa BalBalTa. I absolutely loved the light beat of the song paired with the rhythmic rap beats of Gary and Gil. Tasha (Yoon Mirae) rapping in this song is icing on the cake! I think she is one of the best female Korean rappers. Kwon Jungyeol’s voice makes it more soothing to listen to. This is my second favorite Leesang song — the first is still The Girl Who Can’t Break Up, The Guy Who Can’t Leave (yes, that’s the video with Lee Hyori in it).

Although, I am very fond of listening to Kpop, there is always a spot for Leesang. I’ve liked them since I’ve discovered Ballerino back in 2008. Aside from Clazziquia Project, they were second on my list. Though I did not really understand their music but I loved the beats of the their songs. I just don’t really post too much about them on my blog. I would recommend them if you fancy listening to another artist not of the Kpop genre.

The Video

Was fun to look at! Hahaha.. Actually I am a sucker for animations like this and I really don’t care if it relates to the song of not. I think it was beautifully made. You might think it to be simple but actually it’s a painstaking task to do each of those frames done in the video. It has to be photographed then edited. And each frame has a particular detail so it is quite difficult.

I love this song and though it’s been a year from it’s release I’m posting the lyrics still.

Turned Off the TV – Translation

*I love you so much so I turned off the TV
Your red lips
I love you so much so I closed the curtains
Your red lips
I love you so much so I turned off the TV
Your red lips
I love you so much so I closed the curtains
Your red lips

In my eyes, your body has the most beautiful lines than any other lines
Your dark hair, I melt in its scent
Sometimes I imagine things and I become greedy
When I watch TV, when I walk, I want you all the time
I can’t suppress it, how can I just hold your hands?
Don’t sound so hard on me, you’re the one who made me hard
I love you so much, I wannna give you my everything and have your everything
I want to hug you closer, I wanna wet my body and pat your bottom

I wanna show you all night
You will cry when you see a different me from yesterday
I wanna show you all night
You’re so lovely, you always make my heart flutter baby


Why did you just close the curtains when it’s so hot?
Why did you just turn off the tv?
Why are you looking at me like that, setting the mood?
I’m tired, I’m tired, let’s just sleep
I wanna dream in your arms all night
Stop whining, tonight is not the only night
Not tonight baby, come on my angel, let’s just sleep
Don’t get mad and hold my hand
Why are you turning your back against me like a child?
Oh come on, you’re so silly
I’ll think about it, go turn off the lights

I can’t sleep like this, you’re so beautiful
I can’t just let tonight go like this
Don’t say no tonight, no no no


You make my heart flutter

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술

내 눈엔 그 어떤 선보다 아름다운 너의 몸매
검은 머리 너만의 향기에 나는 녹네
때론 몰래 응큼한 상상을 해 그러다 욕심이 솟네
티비를 보다가도 거리를 걷다가도
시도때도 없이 난 너를 원해 못참아 어떻게 손만 잡아
딱딱하게 말하지마 니가 날 딱딱하게 만들었잖아
널 너무 사랑해 내 모든 걸 다 주고
니 모든 걸 다 갖고 싶어
더 가까이 널 안고싶어
내 몸을 적시고 엉덩이 토닥토닥하고 싶어
이 밤이 새도록 보여주고 싶어
어제와 또 다른 내 모습에 눈물까지 흘릴거야

이 밤이 새도록 보여주고 싶어
넌 너무 사랑스러워 언제나 나를 설레게 만들어

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술

더운데 갑자기 커텐을 왜 쳐
잘 보고있는 티비는 또 왜 꺼?
그런 눈으로 왜 또 분위기 잡아
피곤해 피곤해 그냥 나 잘래
니 품에서 꿈꾸고 싶어 밤새
그만 좀 보채
오늘만 날이 아니잖아 좀 참아
착하지 내 남자 그냥 코 자자
삐지지 말고 내 손을 잡아
어린 애처럼 왜 또 등을 돌려
못말려 너란 남자 정말 웃겨
생각해 볼께 어서 가서 불꺼

이대론 잠 못 자요 넌 너무 아름다워
난 오늘 이 밤을 보내기엔 아쉬워요
오늘은 안된다고 말아요
그만 그만 그만

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술
나를 설레게 만들어

Nice Guy (차칸남자) Teaser is Out!

I have work tomorrow but that does not stop me from posting this! I should really be going to bed now!

But OMG!!! The trailer for Song Joongki‘s new drama is out.. actually it was posted 2 days ago! Grrr.. I should have checked my youtube subscriptions!

OMG! OMG!! I can’t imagine him playing a bad guy! (sorry for all the exclamation marks, but as you can see I’m very very excited!)

Song Joongki will be playing the lead character Maru in the drama 차칸남자 (Nice Guy). His role will be a good guy who was betrayed by his girlfriend in the past. He decides to change his ways to become a bad guy and get his revenge. His co-actors for this drama are Moon Chae-won and Park Shi-yeon. Oh and by the way, this is the drama where Lee Gwangsoo (from Running Man) is casted too.

Like I said I really could not imagine him being a bad guy! Maybe because his roles in the past required him to be the cute guy.. who at times can be serious (oh Yeorim how we miss you!). But this will be a first and I am quite excited to see the different side to him. This would prove his ability as an actor! I’m not very sure though about Moon Chae-won. I am not very quite convinced with her roles in the past. But you never know maybe it would change.

But I can’t wait for it for this drama..  I can’t wait for Song Joongki’s transformation….

From this:

To this:

Nice Guy will be premiering after Gaksital.
