Jive Monkey Playlist: 3/16/12

I’ve been digging Jung Yeop a lot lately.  He released an OST single for the matchmaking reality show, The Romantic, called “입 맞추고 싶어요 (I Want to Kiss You)” and I can’t stop listening to it.  It’s very romantical.

For White Day (3/14), he released a single called “Beautiful Lady”.  For those unfamiliar with White Day, it’s a 2nd Valentine’s Day in Korea.  Women give men gifts on Valentine’s Day and men reciprocate with a gift on White Day.  For more info, Eat Your Kimchi always provide hilarious info and videos on Korean pop culture.  (For all you single folks, Black Day is next month on April 14th and all the single people drown their “single sorrows” with a bowl of jjajangmyun.  Ay, Koreans love their Hallmark holidays.)

The song is simple and sweet and it really suits Jung Yeop’s higher ranged, silky voice.  He co-produced the track along with indie band, Echo Bridge.  I feel like the intro to the song should be aided with sound effects of birds chirping.  In that way, the song totally suits this sweet, spring-like, New York weather we are having.

However, I don’t love the title as I don’t think it accurately depicts the romantic proposal in the song. I like that this song is in total contrast with his last album, “Part I: ME”, which mostly featured sad, breakup songs.  I could almost see Jung Yeop smiling sweetly as he’s singing “Beautiful Lady”.  So here’s hoping that Jung Yeop’s proposal presents you all with sugar-coated romances.

Beautiful Lady

이제 내 손을 잡아요 눈을 떠봐요
내가 있어요 이렇게
이젠 그대인걸 알아요
웃음 지어요 내게 기대요

온통 내 마음엔 따스한
그대의 너무 예쁜 미소뿐이죠
지금껏 지내왔던 너의 그날들을
이젠 함께 할게
널 더 소중하게 아름답게

Baby I will stay with you
and I’m in love with you
그대 곁에 있어 사랑해줄게
오직 나만의 너를 위해

이제 내 눈을 보아요 마음을 열어요
내가 있어요 여기에
이젠 그대인걸 알아요
웃음 지어요 내게 기대요

온통 내 마음엔 따스한
그대의 너무 예쁜 미소뿐이죠
지금껏 지내왔던 너의 그날들을
이젠 함께 할게
널 더 소중하게 아름답게

Baby I will stay with you
and I’m in love with you
그대 곁에 있어 사랑해줄게
오직 나만의 너를 위해

Beautiful Beautiful

오직 나만의 너를 위해
