Like A Fool – Gilme ft. Eun Jiwon (MV)

Though I scream and follow Kpop idol groups, my liking of Kpop music is not limited to idol groups. I do like other artists.

And Gilme is one of them. She recently released a track called Like A Fool (내가 먼저) featuring fellow Clover member Eun Ji Won.

The Video…

My first reaction to the video was.. “OMG is that Gilme?” I had to do a double take. Actually I have liked her since her first solo single Love Cuts, which was released like 2 years ago. I like the way she sounds and her pitch is quite high. And the best thing about her is that she can sing and rap at the same time. If you’ve heard Clover’s songs, you’d know that she’s quite good at rap! Personally I like the way she raps compared to some the other idol group rappers (i can only pick a few that i like).Anyway, back then she wasn’t this thin, so I had to ask if this was really Gilme.

So let’s talk about the video.. hmm i don’t think there is a story, or maybe i don’t understand. The first part — the girl breaking the glass was a bit leaning toward a story, but in the end I just see Gilme singing, Eun Ji Won rapping and then Gilme dancing with the backup dancers. I was expecting there would be one, but there wasn’t any.

The video’s clothes were nice! I like it. But my god! Can they get rid of Gilme’s ridiculous hair!  Cringe!!! If I was there, I’d have pulled it or chop off that do. I think they were trying to create a chic gal, but that hair style is TERRIBLE! You can look chic without that do. I’m sorry whoever the stylist was, but that hair ruined the look. Make up was ok, clothes fabulous… the hair— horrible!!! And I think it was bothersome when she danced. This video would have been ok without that hair!

My only consolation in the video was seeing Eun Ji Won. Oh how we missed you in 2 days 1 night! Though I am enjoying season 2, but I still miss the craziness of Eun Choding! No one thinks like him. But I think he wants to focus on his music more. But happy to see him.

The Song..

The song is a bit slower compared to Gilme’s previous tracks. Do I like it? The first time I heard it I wasn’t convinced, but the “Naega Meonjeo” part gets to you and I’m liking it now. This song reminds me of Kpop tracks that were a trend in 2007-2008. Those tracks we don’t really hear much now. Gilme does rap, but it’s only in the end… I’d love to hear her rap more though. Eun Ji Won’s part.. hmm well the bill says it’s featuring him, he is not the artist, so I guess we can forgive him for having such small parts in this song.

Though I like this, I like Love Cuts better. I think that song showed more of her vocal ability compared to this one and it was more catchy than this one. But it’s still good nontheless.

Final Verdict: Something different to hear… but maybe you won’t like it directly, but later on the chorus will get to you. Video was ok, except for that awful hair, next time get a better stylist!

Couple – Sechskies

I wasn’t a fan of Kpop before. My world then was filled with Western boybands like *Nsync and Backstreet Boys. Thus, I never got to appreciate much of the first generation Kpop boybands.

So once when I asked my Korean friend if she new H.O.T she said she did… but then she added that she preferred Sechskies 젝스키스. When I heard the name, I was like… who are they, and she introduced me to this song called Couple (커플).

So who are these guys??

Sechskies was the rival group of H.O.T during the time boybands first became a hit in Korea. If you watch 2 Days 1 Night and you’re familiar with Eun Jiwon, he was originally a member of that group. If you also listen to a lot of Kpop and familiar with a group called J-Walk (who sang Shout Out Love and My Love), both members also were from that group. They were popular from 1997 however they disbanded sometime in 2000.

The song Couple is one of their popular songs and sometimes it still is sang on some shows. If I remember correctly, when Nichkhun was first featured on We Got Married, on the bus he rode, some singers sang this song in acapella.

In the absence of a nice romanization on the internet, I went ahead and did the romanization. For someone who wants to sing a korean song but doesn’t speak or read the language this is important to us. And since sharing is caring so I am putting it up on my blog.. however if you copy it, please make sure to give credit where it’s due ^_^.

So sing a long with the lyrics..

Couple – Sechskies (Translation)

Compared to before, you’re probably more better now
You’ve fulfilled this emptiness inside me
Being so weary in this wonderful world
Losing my way trying to find my other half is all in the past
You don’t know how long I’ve waited in my life for this day
It feels like a dream
I’m not alone, but with you now

Oh~ Love I’ve been so weary, why did it take you so long to find me
Oh~ Love I love you, now you can spend every second with me

All right all right
When I saw you one time I lost my heart to you
Oops baby I’ll be loving you forever with you now
Baby don’t go too far I won’t let you go
Please don’t go I want to hold you tight and I need your love

Come into my arms and look at me
Stop breathing and close your eyes
Will you accept me
I’m not bent
For you I’m your one rose baby kiss me

Oh~ Love I’ve been so weary, why did it take you so long to find me
Oh~ Love I love you, now you can spend every second with me

Do you know how many long days I’ve waited for you to come
Now I’m going to hold your hand real tight in front of everyone
We’re going together now

Oh~ Love I’ve been so weary, why did it take you so long to find me
Oh~ Love I love you, now you can spend every second with me

Couple – Sechskies (Hangul)

예전보다 지금 니가 더욱 괜찮을꺼야
허전했던 나의 빈 곳을 이젠 채워 줬으니
아름다운 세상에서 많이 외로워 하며
내 반쪽을 찾아 해맨건 모두 옛날 얘긴걸

내 생애 이 시간만을 얼마나 기다렸는지 마치 꿈만 같은걸
이젠 나 혼자가 아닌 너와 함께 하는거야

Oh~ LOVE 왜 이제서야 많이 외롭던 나를 찾아온거야
Oh~ LOVE 너를 사랑해 이제 모든 시간들을 나와 함께해

All right. all right

When I saw you one time I lost my heart to you
Oops baby I’ll be loving you forever with you now

Baby, don’t go too far I won’t let you go
Please don’t go I want to hold you tight and
I need your love

얼마나 수많은 날을 기다려 왔는줄 아니 이젠 모두 앞에서
너의 손을 꼭 붙잡고 우린 함께 하는거야

Oh~ LOVE 왜 이제서야 많이 외롭던 나를 찾아온거야
Oh~ LOVE 너를 사랑해 이제 모든 시간들을 나와 함께해

과거 따윈 모두 잊고 나와 함께 할
많은 시간을 추억으로 만들어

Oh~ LOVE 왜 이제서야 많이 외롭던 나를 찾아온거야
Oh~ LOVE 너를 사랑해 이제 모든 시간들을 나와 함께해
