Falling Slowly Versions

I have written sometime last year on this blog that I liked a song called Falling Slowly from the movie Once. Inspired by this and because I just saw a clip of Yong Hwa (CN Blue) and Seo Hyun (SNSD) perform it on We Got Married,  I decided to feature the different covers of this song done by Kpop idols…

Yes, this song has been sung a lot of times and I think it’s very popular in Korea.. But though a lot of K-artists have been doing their version of the song, I’m still not tired of hearing it! I get all giddy when I hear the first few chords of the song.

So who do you think did the best cover??

Yong Hwa and Seo Hyun (Sweet Potato Couple)

Jo Kwon and Ga In (they sing during the 1:21 mark)

Jinwoon  and Jo Kwon

Kim Hyun Joong (singing to Hwang Bo.. aw I miss this We Got Married Couple – Lettuce Couple!)

Sungmin and Sunny

And just a plus.. he is not a Korean idol but this kid is korean and he can play the guitar!!! He is Sungha Jung..  check out his youtube page for more of his videos…

So which one do you like?

Solbi Comeback @ Mnet Countdown 160409

We got married is one of the shows that I am an avid fan of (I still try my best to be updated with the episodes as much as I can — though no more Hyun Joong but Kangin is there :D). One of my favorite couples is the Ansol couple (Andy and Solbi). Though they left in the 28th episode, I still miss them!

It was through that show that I learned about Solbi and the group she was a part of before, Typhoon. I really loved Typhoons songs, especially when Solbi is singing them (not that I don’t like their new singer, it’s just that Solbi’s voice wonderful). However, Solbi went solo. After leaving Typhoon, Solbi had some solo songs already and I think she had a collaboration with Shinji.

solbi

Since I like her, I sometimes check the internet for news about her. I was also amazed at how good she looked now. I didn’t even recognize her in last week’s (or was it the other week) Star King (she guested with Super Junior’s Eunhyuk and Leeteuk). She’s gotten prettier!

I was glad to have found out that she recently made a comeback on Mnet countdown with a ballad song. I’m not sure what the title of the song is but if I’m not mistaken its Will be Punished (but just in case this is the Hangul – 벌 받을 거야 – if you know the title leave a comment please). It’s nice to hear her sing again.. and I can’t wait for the music video!. But for now I’m posting the live performance…

Solbi hwaiting! 😀

Only You – Kim Jong Wook

I am a We Got Married addict. I’m not sure how many times I’ve mentioned that on this blog. I’ve recommended it to some of my friends and they too have been addicted to it.

The song that I am posting is one of the songs from that variety show. For one who has seen the show I’m sure you are quite familiar with the song as it usually is played as the ending theme for the show — especially in the first episodes of the show and during Alex and Shinae moments. The song was sung by Kim Jong Wook and is called Only You (Geudae Mani).  The song’s MV also features Jo Yeo-jeong who was one of the celebreties who was in the show (she was in ep 9 – 17 with Lee Hwi Jae). I have to say, Koreans are really good making good scripts and plots — you probably have noticed it in their dramas, movies and even music videos. Oh and by the way this is not a sad song! yay!

kim-jong-wook

Kim Jong Wook is by the way the guy who sang the Korean version of Way Back Into Love with Solbi…

I’m posting 2 videos of the song, the original music video and a compiled live version of the songs. Credits  CodeAnalysis and ninanguyen2201@youtube for the videos.

Only You (Translation)

Only you can make me smile,
Only you can wrap me in your arms
Only you, Only you shine brighter than a jewel
You’re brighter than a sunshine
Your mind is wider than a sea

Only you, Only you make me live
I passed by the farest stars to meet you
I must’ve came too far
I want to love you as one, just like that warm sunset
Give me your heart that never dies

Even if I gave you my poor love,
You gave me even more love
Only you, Only you can give me happiness

Your eyes are twinkling just like a star
Your lips, Your two hands, You don’t have any place to hate
We’re starting to become alike, It must be happiness

For you, For you
There’s something I have to say,
Have told you that I was thankful
Since the time we started to love, I was always sorry to you
I want to love you as one, just like that warm sunset
Give me your heart that never dies

Even if I gave you my poor love,
You gave me even more love
Only you, Only you can give me happiness

Even if I give you my entire life,
There’s nothing to feel regretful about
Only you, Only you, You’re the only reason that I’m living for

Only You 김종욱 – 그대만이  (Hangul)

그대만이 날 웃게하고 그대만이 날 감싸줘요
그대만이 그대만이 보석보다 빛나는걸
햇살보다 눈이 부시고
바다보다 마음이 넓어요

그대만이 그대만이 나를 살게 하네요
그대를 만나려고 머나먼 별을 지나서
이렇게 멀리 돌아왔나봐요
사랑하는 마음 하나로 뜨거운 저 햇살처럼
식지 않는 그대의 마음을 내게 주세요

가난했던 내 사랑을 줘도 넘치도록 주던 사람
그대만이 그대만이 내게 행복을 줄 한 사람

그대 눈이 반짝이네요 별이 빛나는것 같아요
그대 입술 그대 두손 미운데가 하나없죠
우리서로 닮아가네요 서로에게 행복만 주네요

그대에게 그대에게
해줄말이 있어요. 고맙다는 말 했나요
우리 사랑하는 동안 난 항상 미안한 마음 뿐인데
사랑하는 마음 하나로 뜨거운 저 햇살처럼
식지않는 그대의 마음을 내게 주세요

가난했던 내 사랑을 줘도 넘치도록 주던 사람
그대만이 그대만이 내게 행복을 줄 한사람

내 삶을 전부 다준다해도 아까울것 없는 사람
그대만이 그대만이 내가 살아갈 이유인 걸

Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

I’ve been addicted to We Got Married for sometime now (though I’m not done watching the 41 episodes that’s been posted on mysoju — I’m still on the 31st episode). One of my favorite couples is of course the “lettuce” couple (a.k.a joongbo couple) — all because of Kim Hyun Joong — and I have to admit its was because of him that I watched this show.

In one of the many episodes,  particularly the 26th episode, Hyun Joong serenaded Hwang Bo because it was her birthday. The song he sang sounded very familiar, but I can’t seem to place where I heard the song. So I googled it and it is in fact, to me a very familiar song… because it won an Academy Award last 2006 as the Best Song. The song that I am talking about is Falling Slowly, which was the original music for a movie called Once. I love the lyrics and the melody of the song and the fact that it won an Oscars!

once-movie

The song I’m posting isn’t anything Asian but I loved this song eversince I heard it some 2 years ago. It was my cousin who introduced me to the song. I almost forgot about it, until the time I heard Hyun Joong sing it. And now I have to stop my blabber and share the song with you :D.

I’m posting a videoclip I got from the FoxSearchlight channel on youtube. It has clips of the movie. I’m also including a link for the audio only incase you would like to listen…

Audio Version

Falling Slowly

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You’ve made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along
