One Spring Day – 2AM (MV)

Yay! their officially back with a new track. I don’t know about you but I am happy to see 2AM back with a new song.

2am_One_Spring_Day

The new track is called One Spring Day.

The MV

One thing I really look forward when I know 2AM makes a come back is the story of their MV. I love how it always tells a story and not just a group singing the song showing their faces only.. though they did this in the past, but their concepts for their recent MVs have been different.

Most the stories in their MVs are sad, but I think to complement this song, they had to make one that is not so sad (well maybe a little bit). The MV is a bit confusing at first. But if you look at the title and if you finish the video, you would understand it. My take on the story is that there is a man revisiting different times of his relationship with the girl. It shows the happy and the sad parts of their relationships. He opens one door for each important moment of that relationship. But the catch is, he is just revisiting it and he can’t go back to the past because the girl is gone already — I think she is dead, because there are 2 scenes showing the girl that vision is blurred. Most of the time in Korean MVs, this scene means the someone is dead.. so I’m gonna make that guess. In the end, as they are all memories, he leaves and goes on with this life.

I am quite happy with this video. But not as impressed as I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me. I think that would still be the best video of 2AM in my opinion. However for this song, I like this video very much. It’s always fun watching videos of 2AM. I must be too sentimental and romantic for liking these videos!

PS… i love how innocent looking they are in white! Jo Kwon especially in his Harry Potter inspired glasses!

The Song

My first thoughts when I heard this song is that there was something vaguely familiar of the tune! I couldn’t quite place it at first, and then I later realized, it was the piano sequence in the verse. If you’re a fan of DBSK, you would remember their last Japanese song sang as 5 membersย Stand By U. Listen to it and you would know what I mean.. it sounds familiar doesn’t it?

I know though that Stand By U and One Spring Day are both different songs. But I think it’s because of that, I am not getting the song too much. Maybe my expectations ย were too high especially because I really liked I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me a lot!!! This song is good, but not as good as the last one. With the latter I had the “Oh my god I love it” reaction after I first heard it. With this, I guess it would take some time getting used to and some time to forget how similar it sounds to Stand By U (which I love by the way, so I need time to process this). But don’t worry the song is not bad at all!!

What I did realize though with this song is that 2AM is reinventing their sound again. I think that’s maybe what I like about their music because if you listen to their albums in the past and in the present, their songs are all different. To me most K-ballad groups all have the same kind of music which I find boring at times. But with 2AM I am never bored of their songs because each time it’s different. I always want to listen to their new song.

Final Verdict: I need to listen to this song again and again to forget that it sounds like another song I love. It’s not my favorite 2AM song though. But this song is a change from their past tracks. I love the MV! ๐Ÿ™‚

Who’s ready for 2AM’s Comeback?? + Happy 5th Anniversary!

Yay! I can’t contain my excitement!

2AM is finally making a comeback next month!!!!

I have been waiting for this come back since their I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me. Although the boys were still active through individual promotions, variety shows and dramas, nothing beats them making music together.

2AM is actually one of those groups I really like. Yes they are a boyband, they can dance (well maybe not as good as other boy idol groups) but boy can they sing! I love the fact that they are an idol group but at the same time the songs they release are mostly ballads. It’s a ballad but it would still have high ranks on the chart.

The new album is called One Spring Day. From the look of the teaser, it could be a sad song. A set filled with pianos outgrown by roots and trees that are in full bloom — hmm it could mean recalling a love lost in the past? Ok so I’m just guessing. But I really can’t wait for this new album!

I’ve never been disappointed with their songs so my expectations are a bit high. I hope this would not be the first one! Can’t wait for March 5!

Oh and as a bonus… 2AM has been in the industry for 5 years already. This video is a video of that 5 year journey.

Oh how they’ve grown and matured since 2008. I hope they won’t stop bringing beautiful ballads. Congratulations!!!! Please don’t break up. Sorry for that statement but since DBSK broke up on their 5th year, I am almost always scared the idol groups I like will break up.. Please don’t!

2AM fighting!!!

One Day – 2AM + 2PM (PV)

I haven’t paid too much attention to Jpop recently. But this is essentially a cross between Jpop and Kpop so I decided to post it.

It’s the PV for One Day, a track by 2AM and 2PM.

I’m sure their fans would have known of this already. I am not much of a 2PM fan (except for Nichkhun). I liked them before, when Jay Park was there, but for me after Again and Again and I Hate You, I really didn’t quite get their songs. But I still like Nichkhun! It’s a different story for 2AM. I liked them since I heard What To Do and Confession of a Friend and I’ve never stopped liking them!

This song is a Japanese single. I think this song is actually a good one for the Japanese market. It’s the kind of song most Japanese boy band releases. Do I like it? Hmm.. it’s ok I think, but not a favorite of mine, but pleasant to the ear. I don’t hate it, just not very catchy for me. (I think this is the big difference for me with Jpop and Kpop)

The video is quite simple, just them dressed in suits and doing the usual dance. Ok Taecyeon! I don’t know what’s with me but I like the way you look in this video! Kya.. and not to mention Jinwoon (sorry I can’t helped but be biased). And yay! we got to see 2AM dance again. Speaking of dancing, their moves remind me of Arashi and their dance steps from the not so old days. If I hadn’t know better, I would think they were a Japanese boy band instead of a Korean one. Suddenly I miss my Arashi crazy days! Matsumoto Jun, Sakurai Sho! (at this point I am surpressing my Arashi fandom because this post is about 2AM and 2PM).

Final Verdict:I think the song is for the Japanese market, not the usual 2AM/2PM song, but good for Jpop. And the dancing reminds me of my Japanese boyband fandom! Oh how I miss Arashi!

I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me – 2AM (with lyrics)

I’m liking this song a lot recently. I always thought I did not like ballads but I don’t know what it is about 2AM songs that make me really feel good even when it’s a sad song.

Before putting up the video of 2AM‘s I Wonder If You Hurt Like Meย ย ๋„ˆ๋„ ๋‚˜์ฒ˜๋Ÿผ, I’m putting the prequel to understand the story of the video:

Prequel

ย 

Music Video

ย 

I know they have released this video for some time already and they have in fact won an award on Music Bank, but I’ve been lagging on posting something. And I think now is the perfect time to post it. There is no doubt that 2AMs voices are still powerful as ever. I have to say though that Jinwoon’s voice has greatly improves (and I don’t mean in a biased manner). I think now he sings better compared to Confession of a Friend. I like how Jokwon’s high pitched voice has become stronger, not I have to say the chorus sounds stronger than before. ย The songs on this album are noteworthy and very very nice.. it’s a good album.. so good that I want to buy the physical album!

For the music video, we usually get teasers for a music video, but for this I love that they did a prequel as well as interviewed women’s opinions of breaking up. I know I sound like a fan girl but I love how the maknae stars in the video! Aigoo, the maknae has grown a lot! The video was sad but it’s kinda creepy to watch Jinwoon moving, hugging the lifeless body! But its a Kpop video so they can do pretty much anything to get the message to the viewers.

I love this song so much, that I’m putting the lyrics! kk I just want to sing this song a lot..

ย I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me (English Translation)ย 

As i think only of you all day
A single stream of tear flows on its own

Step by step, i see you
So even as i work, tears flow without me knowing

Even when i sing
Even when i walk the streets
Iโ€™m filled with thoughts of you

I wonder if you hurt like me
I wonder if you cry like me
I wonder if you live all day in memories like me

There are many things to laugh about forcibly
Like a wind-up doll, like itโ€™s my job, i laugh

Even when i watch tv
Even when i meet my friends
Iโ€™m filled with thoughts of you

I wonder if you hurt like me
I wonder if you cry like me
I wonder if you live all day in memories like me

Because i smile every day
Because i show my smiles,
They think i am happy
But how can i smile, how can i smile without you
I smile and i smile but tears flow again

Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die – 2AM

Can I just say how frustrated I am this year because a lot of artists are having their concert in the Philippines. Unfortunately because I live in another island (the queen city of the south) I can’t watch most of them.. or maybe I can but I have to take a leave from work and spend a lot of money.

So today as I watched TV, I saw the news feature 2AM.. and they have come to the Philippines for a concert. OMG! How can Jinwoon be so handsome on TV!!! kk ๐Ÿ™‚ ok calm down.. sigh, I can’t see them.. I need to save for a more important trip, so maybe next time. So instead of wallowing out my frustration on the extra calories I don’t really need now, I’m reverting my frustration toward making a blog post.

I know this song has been released a long time ago but I haven’t put it up on my blog. This is 2AM‘s breakthrough song Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die (์ฃฝ์–ด๋„ ๋ชป๋ณด๋‚ด).

When this song was very popular I never posted it because I can see a lot of blogs containing the song, so I thought what’s the use. And I think I was so Super Junior gaga at that time. But don’t get me wrong I liked this song. I was a fan of Jo Kwon even before that time. This song is so sentimental that even if I am just listening to it, I can feel it’s a really sad songs, and oh how I love them sad songs. And so here it’s with this post that I end my frustration!

Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die – 2AM (Translation)

Even though I’m young, the pain is the same
Just because I don’t know the world very well
Doesn’t mean that I don’t know pain

Why do you lie, saying it’ll be okay?
How will my heart, that hurts this much
Be healed so easily?
How will I live without you?
That’s why I

Can’t let you go, even if I die
How am I suppose to let you go?
Whether you go or leave, fix my heart
If you can’t fix it, so that I won’t be in pain
So that I can at least live
I wouldn’t be able to live anyway
I can’t let you go, even if I die

No matter how much you push me away
I’ll hold onto you until the end
So that you won’t be able to go anywhere

If you’re really going to leave, then lie
That we should meet again tomorrow
That we should meet as we smile
If breaking up wasn’t a joke, then I

Can’t let you go, even if I die
How am I suppose to let you go?
Whether you go or leave, fix my heart
If you can’t fix it, so that I won’t be in pain
So that I can at least live
I wouldn’t be able to live anyway
I can’t let you go, even if I die

We went through so much time together
How are you telling me to live by myself now?
I can’t do that, I can’t

I can’t let you go, even if I die
I really can’t let you go
How am I suppose to let you go?
I can’t let you go
Whether you go or leave, fix my heart
If you can’t fix it, so that I won’t be in pain
So that I can at least live
I wouldn’t be able to live anyway
I can’t let you go, even if I die
