Day 26: Your favorite cover of a k-pop song by another k-pop artist

Jang Jae In & Kim Ji Soo covered Seo In Young’s “Cinderella” during the final auditions for Superstar K2. I wasn’t familiar with the original song but I fell in love with what they did with it. So then I looked for the original version and, sorry to say, this cover is 100 times better than the original. Love their voices!

Day 17: A k-pop idol you wish was your older sibling
Aigoo. Do I have to actually choose someone older than me? Or can I choose someone younger and just wish they were my older sibling? Coz I’m tellin’ ya, there are not a lot of idols older than me. It’s gonna be slim pickings.
I guess I have to go with Leeteuk. He’s like the oppa of all oppas. He’s gonna be the best older brother because he’s had years of experience taking care of 12 rowdy boys. And he actually is older than me. Hee!

Day 16: Your favorite k-pop lyric (and a translation)

Brown Eyed Soul’s “Nothing Better”

Korean:

ije kkumcheoreom nae mameun keudae ppume kamanhi an-gyo-ittjyo
han sun-gando kkae-ji anhneun kkeut’obneun kkumeul kkoojyo

ije sumcheoreom nae gyot’e hangsang swimyo geureohke isseojumyon
Nothing better, nothing better than you
Nothing better, nothing better than you
Nothing better, nothing better than you

English:

And now like a dream, my heart in your embrace, is held still
Without awakening for a single moment, I dream an endless dream

And now like breathing, if you were to always rest by my side
If you were to always remain this way
Nothing better nothing better than you
Nothing better nothing better than you
Nothing better nothing better than you

Day 15: A k-pop song that reminds you of someone you miss

Uhhh… There’s no k-pop song that reminds me of him because I wasn’t a fan of k-pop back when I knew him. I guess you can say this song is applicable to the relationship we once had between us. I’m over him and what I thought we once had. But like in the song, it might have been total fiction - a story I had written in my head. Maybe to him, we were nothing more than friends. My memories tell me otherwise, but we’ll never know for sure.
