Waiting (기다리다) – Panic (패닉)

I am absolutely enjoying old Kpop songs these days. I don’t know but I get excited when I hear them sing an old song and I immediately jumped to looking for the original singer of the song.

I have been listening to this song over and over for the past few days (its this and David Choi’s By My Side). I know it has been sung over and over again by several artists and it has been featured in Kdramas, the latest of which was in Dream High. But I guess this song will not fade (that’s why I love old songs :))

The song is called Waiting (기다리다) by Panic (패닉). I couldn’t find any music video so I settled for a this….

and  a live version of Lee Jeok (이적) singing (by the way he was part of Panic but he’s a solo artist now..

This song was originally releases in 1995 as part of Panic’s first album. I absolutely love the strumming of the guitar in this song. There is something about acoustic music that really draws me. Must be my liking for rock music. And the song’s melody is truly saying the feeling of the lyrics of the song, so that’s another plus in my book. I just love it and I have been playing this again and again. Here’s the lyrics to help you sing along…

Waiting (English Translation)

While I was waiting for you,
I’ve been thinking that you’re so painful after you left me.
So you’re crying on the way back to me.
When I look at you, I hope.
On a clear day you will come back to me just like when you left me.

Can’t I see you again?
I can’t see me in your eyes
Comfortable waves and remains of the smile make me cry.
You’d come back to me
Don’t hesitate to come to my arms if your heart called me
I’ll hug you like I did before.

When I look at you, I hope.
On a clear day you will come back to me just like when you left me.

Can’t I see you again?
I can’t see me in your eyes
Comfortable waves and remains of the smile make me cry.
You’d come back to me
Don’t hesitate to come to my arms if your heart called me
I’ll hug you like I did before.

Waiting 기다리다 (Hangeul)

널 기다리다 혼자 생각했어
떠나간 넌 지금 너무 아파
다시 내게로 돌아올 길 위에 울고 있다고
널 바라보다 문득 생각했어
어느날 하늘이 밝아지면
마치 떠났던 날처럼 가만히 너는 내게 오겠지
내 앞에 있는 너

* 네가 다시 나를 볼 순 없을까
너의 두 눈 속에 나는 없고
익숙해진 손짓과 앙금같은 미소만
희미하게 남아서 나를 울게 하지만
너는 다시 내게 돌아올거야
너의 맘이 다시 날 부르면
주저말고 돌아와 네 눈앞의 내 안으로
예전처럼 널 안아줄테니

널 바라보다 문득 생각했어
어느날 하늘이 밝아지면
마치 떠났던 날처럼 가만히 너는 내게 오겠지

* 네가 다시 나를 볼 순 없을까
너의 두 눈 속에 나는 없고
익숙해진 손짓과 앙금같은 미소만
희미하게 남아서 나를 울게 하지만
너는 다시 내게 돌아올거야
너의 맘이 다시 날 부르면
주저말고 돌아와 네 눈앞의 내 안으로
예전처럼 널 안아줄테니

I know a lot of Kdrama fans recognized this song being sung by Pilsuk’s (IU) character from Dream High. This was the song she was singing in the hospital. But I liked this song when I saw Kim Hyun Joong singing it in Boys Over Flowers. This was the song he sang when he was in Macau (before the acoustic version of Because I’m a Fool). *wink *wink ^_^

So who sang it better?

Kim Hyun Joong’s version (with Because I’m a Fool)

IU’s version

Can’t Open Up My Lips – K.Will (MV)

I knew it!!! When I first saw K.Will‘s new MV, My Heart is Beating, I noticed that there is a guy buy of no significant role. He was just a visitor in the cafe IU works in… I thought… I think he has a role but eventually the video did not let us see more of him!

And yes oh yes! Apparently he does have a purpose… in K. Will’s second single Can’t Open My Eyes (입이떨어지지 않아서).

To watch an HD version, click on this link…

So he is the guy who admires IU from afar but can’t say what his feelings are because IU (in this video) like Lee Joon of MBLAQ’a character. It’s a little predictable but I like how they waited for the next video before they tell us why the heck he is there!

Compared to My Heart is Beating, this is a slower ballad and is leaning toward a heartbreak song. And from the comments in the video, I guess a lot of people are wondering who he is. But I have to say he does look good.. so I guess maybe he is a trainee of Starship entertainment and we could be seeing more of him soon! kk

My Heart Is Beating – K. Will MV

I love watching music videos with stories in it. And I love K. will.

So if you add those two you will have this video… K. will’s recent song My Heart is Beating (가슴이뛴다).

The video is from StarshipTV (the company where Kwill is signed). So if you want to view the HD version click on this link.

As usual I love the sound of this song. Actually I have a particular bias for K. will. He is one of the best Korean ballad singers for me and I especially look forward to all his new songs… blame it on Love 119! This is such a sweet song and it is definitely going to go on my playlist!

Anyway, there is a cute story in the video and it features my favorite girl IU!!! IU is really really cute! and I always love it when she acts in a video or in a drama. I reckon in case she gives up singing, she can be an actress. But please don’t give up singing! kk  I love this kid since I saw her youtube videos and her first song Mia. And she is very lovable! And yes MBLAQ fans would also be delighted to see that Lee Joon is in the video. I’m not so much of an Lee Joon fan as I prefer G.O.. kk

The video’s story is cute and lovable and something that I can’t help but smile after I watched it. Though K-will does not appear on this video, it’s his song, so I am just happy to listen to his voice.

Oh and as a bonus… here is the video of IU’s dance in the video… kk.. I think this is a practice time.. cute cute IU!

Dream High Flash Mob

I love to watch Flash Mobs!

Though I know all of it was planned beforehand but it’s very exciting to watch.

Today as I watched the last episode of Dream High.. I was so excited to see the flash mob dance.

I’m not even finish watching it but I needed to make the post! kk I love flash mobs! kk

Spot Miss A if you can! another cameo! love this drama really!!

Though I am a little sad that this drama is ending. It’s the one (during this season) that I’ve really watched without missing an episode. Sigh.. well everything happy has it’s end… 🙂

I wish there was a second season.. but one with a story you can compare to this!

IU’s Galazy S Commercials

This girl is really pretty and very talented!!! I liked her ever since her debut!! She has a nice sweet voice that could melt your heart… and she’s now infamous for her 3 high notes!

And she looks very dainty and pretty in these commercials!

IU has become the new model for Samsung’s Galaxy S.

Aww.. so cute…
