Kyuhyun ‘At Gwanghwamun (在光化门)’ – English Translation, Pinyin Lyrics, and Chinese Lyrics

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

How are you doing now   Time has left a bit of summer behind

My head is lowered, busy sifting through each day

At the road at Gwanghwamun the leaves are starting to turn yellow

Only when I lifted my head did I realize that the past is gone

Shining eyes, the us who were staring, after the blink of an eye have become strangers to each other

When you were in my embrace, it felt like I had the entire world, now I can only say farewell to those moments

I am still foolishly standing here, day by day

A heavy rain soaks through my heart, look at me waiting for you, who will not come

I was once happy, happy because of you

I can’t help myself and look back, as if you are still standing at the crossroad

So-called life, does it mean searching

Every person is looking for that someone

At this street  the scent of coffee still lingers

A smile revisits the corners of my mouth

Only one person could move my heart, the first time I was willing to pray to fate

My eyes can’t look back, I can’t turn my body back around, why did you decide to take apart “us”?

I am still foolishly standing here, day by day

A heavy rain soaks through my heart, look at me waiting for you, who will not come

I was once happy, happy because of you

I can’t help myself and look back, as if you are still standing at the crossroad

At the road of Gwanghwamun, I who remains is learning

The me who remained has changed

If one day we were to meet again, just smile and it will be enough

I am very happy

This place, like a painting, is still like it was that day

I am still foolishly standing here, day by day

A heavy rain soaks through my heart, look at me waiting for you, who will not come

I think I am very happy, here at the road of Gwanghwamun

I can’t help myself and look back, as if you are still standing at the crossroad

CHINESE LYRICS

你现在好吗 时间把夏天留下

我低头忙着 把每天翻过

光化门的路口 树叶开始变黄

抬头才发现 过去都走了

灿烂的眼神 凝望的我们 一转眼 成为彼此的陌生人)

抱你在怀中 好像拥有了 全世界 那些瞬间只能再见

我还 一天一天 傻傻为你 站立在这里

下一场大雨 淋透我的心 看我等待不会来的你

我想我幸福过 因为你幸福过

忍不住 又再回头 仿佛你还站在路口

所谓的生活 是否意味着寻找

每个人都在 寻找某个人

这条街的路口 咖啡香气依旧

嘴角的微笑 回来探访了

只有一个人 撼动了灵魂 第一次 我愿意去祈求缘分

我回不过神 我转不过身 为什么 你选择拆开了“我们”

我还 一天一天 傻傻为你 站立在这里

下一场大雨 淋透我的心 看我等待不会来的你

我想我幸福过 因为你幸福过

忍不住 又再回头 仿佛你还站在路口

光化门路口 留下了我慢慢学习

留下变了样的自己

某天重遇笑笑就可以

我很幸福

这一个地点 这画面 还宛若那天

我还 一天一天 傻傻为你 站立在这里

下一场大雨 淋透我的心 看我等待不会来的你

我想我很幸福 在光化门路口

忍不住 又再回头 仿佛你还站在路口

EXO ‘Miracles in December’ (Chinese Version) – English Translation, Pinyin Lyrics, and Chinese Lyrics

beautiful beautiful song, and this time the lyrics are much much less awkward ;u;

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

[Luhan] I gaze wistfully at the you whom I cannot see

I listen to the you whom I cannot hear

[Baekhyun] I see scenes that I couldn’t see before

I hear voices that I couldn’t hear before

You  gave me super powers

After you left me

[Chen] The me from before was too selfish and only took care of myself

The me from before was too dumb and didn’t understand your heart

The me today is changing day by day

Even though you are clearly not by my side

[L] But it’s because of you that I am changing, because of the the love you’ve given me

[B] Every time I think of you

My entire world becomes you

The snowflakes in the night sky

Each and every one is one of your teardrops

[L] I wish you could appear in front of my eyes in a single moment

I wish you could return to my side

These powerless super powers

Can’t be exchanged to bring  you back

[C] The me from before was too selfish and only took care of myself

The me from before was too dumb and didn’t understand your heart

The me today is changing day by day

Even though you are clearly not by my side

[B] But it’s because of you that I am changing, because of the the love you’ve given me

[all] Freeze time

[L]  Return to your side

[all] That book of memories

[L] Turn back to that page

[all] The you and me from that page

[C] The you and me from that time

The me who is not strong enough is changing day by day because of your love

[B] You changed everything ([L] my entire life)

[B] Everything ([L] my entire world)

[B] I once did not understand how to appreciate and cherish in love

[C] I once did not think the ending of love was unfortunate

But it’s because of you that I am changing

Even though you are clearly not by my side

[L] My love still continues on, like it has no bounds

[all] Freeze time ([L] Oh I still want to)

[all] Return to your side ([C] return to your side)

[all] That book of memories ([C] Oh those memories)

[C] Is full of words of sadness

[all] As the tears disappear

[C] I go back to that white season

[L] I gaze wistfully at the you whom I cannot see

I listen to the you whom I cannot hear

SHINee to Make Their Comeback on March 21!!!

I.  JUST.  DIED.

For real, I sat here flailing my arms and hyperventilating for a good 5 minutes straight.  And now I’m just sitting here whimpering and wanting March 21 to get here RIGHT NOWWW.  Also, just as a side note, their mini-album is coming out on the 21, and the Hunger Games movie is coming out on the 23.  What is life.  AJKDSF;ALKSFJA;LSKDFJALFJALSKDJF

The name of their mini-album is Sherlock, and it’s supposedly going to feature a variety of really good songs that will showcase each of the members’ talents.  I am so freaking excited asjdfkla;skdfjas;ldkfj ohmygod.

Lol a side note, Minho looks rather strange in his teaser picture.  I have to say, I am not really feeling the whole “French boy” thing….  His hair looks a bit like Goo Joon Pyo’s from Boys Over Flowers.  Also, lots of people were saying like omg where are his abs?  I am not gonna immediately be like omg, cuz like he’s lying down in the picture, maybe abs disappear when you lay down idk lol.  But yeah, maybe the people put on makeup to make the tone look like he didn’t have any.  Who knows?  But yeah.  I am SO EXCITED for the rest of the teasers.

Here’s the link from allkpop because my coherency stops here.  So much for getting homework done tonight…. lol I won’t be able to rest until they come out with Onew’s picture lalalala…

http://www.allkpop.com/2012/03/shinee-releases-their-first-teaser-featuring-minho

Lol jk I’m still coherent enough to squeeze out some remarks about EXO!

What does this mean for EXO’s debut?  They’re having those press conferences on March 31 and April 1, and I doubt SM would want their own artists competing with each other on music shows, so assuming the Sherlock promotions last like at least 2-3 weeks (idk I don’t really follow all the music stages and like the life span of promotions for a song), then that would put EXO like…. mid-April?  Whatttt?  Lol I think SM got a bit ahead of themselves with EXO, I think instead of releasing the first teaser in like December they should have done it in mid-January or early February or something.  But that’s okay.  Their second prologue single should tide us over for a least a little while…..

LIFE IS SO BEAUTIFUL RIGHT NOW.

EXO Teaser 12 – Two Moons feat. SHINee Key

***the full version of this song has been released on the MAMA mini album.  Here are the lyrics for the full song.  (no “roll like a buffalo” tho so sad)

Out of all the teasers, I think this one has been my favorite.  The vocal part has been substantially longer than most of the other teasers (other than like, My Lady, but yeah).  And the rapping is so cool sounding, I mean really, rolling like a buffalo?  Awesome.  Oh and SHINee‘s Key is rapping in it and he sounds super hot and good lord I’ve never heard him rap like this before.  Like actually, his voice sounds so deep and awesome in this song, I am SO EXCITED for them to release the full song after EXO debuts.

I really hope they do lots of SHINee and EXO crossovers since Taemin is so chummy with Kai and Lu Han and Se Hun too, from what I saw from the W Live photoshoot… SM Entertainment, don’t let me down!  Lol.

So anywhoo, this Youtube video has nicely put both the Korean and Chinese versions into one video, so I don’t have to paste two links!

I guess I’ll translate the Chinese lyrics too since the video description has the romanization and characters/pinyin.  Beware, though; all my translations are probably not 100% accurate, but this one more so than others because I’m not exactly sure what they’re talking (lol more like rapping) about.  Like with the Bu Bu Jing Xin songs, basically love, pain, sadness, tragedy, GOTCHA.  But this one… it could go a few ways.  Also, Chinese has SO MANY DANG HOMOPHONES.  It’s actually ridiculous.  Also, Chinese is really reliant on having words with same pronunciation but different tones, and in songs the tones kind of go away, so…. extra challenge!  I know Korean has words that sound really similar, but I don’t think it’s to the extent of Chinese, so don’t hold me to this if any of the characters that I used to translate, or the translation itself, is wrong.  Because I’m pretty sure the video description has some of the wrong characters, so I translated according to what I think I heard.  When EXO debuts and releases this song, hopefully they’ll release lyrics too?  Or like a KTV/noraebang thing?  Haha.

Also, since I’m not Korean, I will wait for someone else to translate the Korean version and then edit this post 🙂  Or, you know, if someone who’s reading this is semi-fluent in Korean, you can help me out too haha.

CHINESE VERSION TRANSLATION

[EXO]

Everybody now behold, something you ain’t seen before

It’s going down, yes tonight is what you waited for

Roll like a buffalo, whoops they already know

I hope you notice it cuz it’s too cool to ignore

Get it up, get it up

I’m already ready to shake your hand

Those people who don’t understand are always thinking of way to shut up my mouth

They just aren’t used to it yet, I won’t give you anymore precise answers

For the may, I guess now we just wait here

Welcome this night

[Key]

Selected VIP

Wouldn’t it be mind-blowingly awesome

Now we gotta rock rock rock it

Just gotta keep your seat belt fastened

[EXO]

There’s gonna be two moons tonight

[Key]

You’re not gonna shoulda with this and coulda with that

Cuz you’re never coming back to this track

See the two full moons you’re the chosen knight (night?)

Goes back with news cause he got no time

[EXO]

There’s gonna be two moons tonight

An Update on My Life… and K-Pop!

Wow I have not posted anything for a very very long time.  But I’m glad I still get so much traffic thanks to my Bu Bu Jing Xin OST song posts!  Haha anyways, it’s been a rough school year and at this point I am just ready to give up so I am writing this to relieve stress 🙂

Initially, this blog was basically just about dramas (I have pages for books and movies…. but those have been sadly neglected haha).  Then like last monthish, I revisited K-pop, and found SHINee.  Cue end of trying to be a good student.  Although in the past, when I first tried K-pop (which was circa…. 2009?  Yeah, I think that sounds right), I kind of just glanced by them, I realized my grave mistake when I found them again.  Also, 2009 was only less than a year after they debuted, so the awesomeness of Ring Ding Dong, Lucifer, Hello, and etc. had not come out yet…. so perhaps that’s a bit why.  BUT.  I think what really got me to love them was watching all those Korean variety shows (seriously, America could learn a thing or two about getting some more interesting variety shows).  Watching Hello Baby was nice because I got to see all of those adorable members (hehe I’m still a dongsaeng, even to Taemin, not one of those crazy noonas :P), and I fell in loveee with them (no matter how scripted the show may be…)  Especially the adorkable ONEW ❤  Oh goodness he’s such a cutie and his non-physical sangtae is AAAHHH love it 🙂  Anywhoo, yes, after that I have searched for any and all shows they have been on and watched them.  And I hope I will be able to continue doing so!  Aka, they should not break up any time in the near future.

So, I am quite excited about their 2012 comeback!!!!  Especially after their Gayo Daejun Lucifer performance (MBC silly, why did you cut off the ending??!), that amazing whispering of “SHINee is back, SHINee is back, SHINee is back”….  I swear, after watching that I sat and hyperventilated while flailing my arms for about 5-10 minutes straight.  Rumors say that they will be making either a February or March comeback..?

However, SM Entertainment will be debuting a new, “revolutionary” boy group called EXO!  Basically, this group will be split into two parts–EXO-K and EXO-M.  EXO-K will promote in Korea, while EXO-M will promote in China (so a bit similar to Super Junior M).  According to SM, they will debut at the same time, with the same song, in Korea and China respectively.  On December 22, 2011, SM began releasing teasers to reveal each of the members.  The first to be revealed was Kai.  To date, Lu Han, Tao, Chen, Se Hun, Lay, Xiu Min, D.O., and Baek Hyun have been revealed through the teasers.  The other 3 members, who were seen but not formally introduced in previous teasers, are Chan Yeol, Kris (or Cris/Chris, I’m not sure), and Joon Myun.

They recently released a prologue song (not to be mistaken with a debut song, apparently) called What Is Love, for which I will be putting up lyrics for both the Chinese and Korean versions and translating the Chinese version.  I will probably also try to find the translations for the Korean version as well.

Anywaysss, I am super excited for this group.  I am really glad that I will actually be able to correctly sing “K-pop” songs!  Although I guess they would be considered C-pop in China, but pshhhh.  I am a tad worried, though, because after all, SM Entertainment is a Korean entertainment company.  Therefore, the power that SM’s name has to push groups to popularity will probably only apply to EXO-K.  Signs of disparity are already showing; for example, on Youtube, the viewer count for EXO-K’s version of What Is Love has already surpassed one million.  EXO-M’s version, on the other hand, has only reached half that.  I would HATE for EXO-M to have to disband or something and have EXO-K still continue due to not enough popularity for EXO-M.  But, as my friend pointed out to me to calm me down, China has its own websites for video watching, such as Youku (China’s version of Youtube I guess?).  So I just really hope that China’s following of EXO-M will be huge and very significant.

Other groups that I have become interested in are MBLAQ and 2PM, to a lesser extent.  I have always kept an eye out for Super Junior, since Sorry, Sorry was the first K-pop song I listened to in 2009, but I never really liked them up to my love for SHINee right now.

So anywaysss, this was my update on how my life has shifted toward K-pop!  🙂

Also, in regards to the “I ❤ KPOP” picture that I had posted a while ago, at that time I only recognized four or five of the groups on there…. the reason I had posted it was just because I really liked how it was a composite of all the groups.  But now I have heard of almost every group on there!  haha~
