Jive Monkey Playlist: 8/24/12

I’ve been really enjoying both Arang and the Magistrate and Answer Me 1997 for many different reasons.  One thing that they both have in common is they have soundtracks that I simply adore.

I’ll admit that when Yoon Do Hyun made his cameo appearance in Arang, I didn’t recognize him.  He was funny though.

But there’s one thing for sure.  He sure knows how to rock like the best of the American rockers.  And the song he does for the Arang OST brings out that zeal.  It’s actually been 6 years since he last did a song for an OST.

The title of the song is actually “My Secret Dream” but if you abbreviate it, it could also translate as “Butterfly Dream”.  A single butterfly is often seen as a symbol of a person’s spirit, particularly of someone you love.

Yoon Do Hyun – 나.비.꿈 (나의 비밀스런 꿈) (Butterfly Dream (My Secret Dream))

윤도현 – 나.비.꿈 (나의 비밀스런 꿈)

나.비.꿈 (나의 비밀스런 꿈)

너 하나만 보인다 내 눈에 너만 빛난다
난 정신없이 꿈결처럼 너를 따라가
내 사랑을 찾았다 난 오랜 꿈을 만났다
단 하나밖에 없는 그 사랑 언제까지나

햇살 삼킨 듯 해
나는 뜨거워져
저 하늘 태양처럼 너만 비춰줄게
다른 누군가가 곁에 있기 전에
이런 내 마음 모두 말해 주고 싶어

널 스쳐만 지나도
내 가슴이 뛰는데 넌 아무것도 모르지
손 끝에 닿았다가 사라지는
그런 꿈은 아닐거야
내가 찾던 그 사랑이 바로 너니까

너 하나만 보인다 내 눈에 너만 빛난다
난 정신없이 꿈결처럼 너를 따라가
내 사랑을 찾았다 난 오랜 꿈을 만났다
단 하나밖에 없는 그 사랑 언제까지나

달을 삼킨 듯해
너는 눈이 부셔
어둔 저 밤 하늘에
걸린 별빛 같아
다른 사람들이 너를 보기 전에
내 품에 숨겨놓고
나만 갖고 싶어

널 스쳐만 지나도
내 가슴이 뛰는데 넌 아무것도 모르지
손 끝에 닿았다가 사라지는
그런 꿈은 아닐거야
내가 찾던 그 사랑이 바로 너니까

너 하나만 보인다 내 눈에 너만 빛난다
난 정신없이 꿈결처럼 너를 따라가
내 사랑을 찾았다 난 오랜 꿈을 만났다
단 하나밖에 없는 그 사랑

너 하나만 들린다
내 맘에 너만 담는다
니 발걸음을 따라 걷는 그림자 되어
내 사랑을 찾았다 난 깊은 꿈에 빠졌다
단 하나뿐인 너는 내 사랑 언제까지나

Butterfly Dream (My Secret Dream)

I see only you, in my eyes you shine
Distracted like in a dream, I trail after you
I found my love, I met my long-time dream
The one and only love, always

Like the sun that’s swallowed the rays
I grow hot
Like the sun in the sky, I’ll just shine on you
Before anybody else can be by my side
I want to tell you my feelings

Even if I brush past you
My heart beats hard, you don’t know anything
Reaching for your fingertips, you disappear
That’s not the kind of dream
The love I’m looking for is you

I see only you, in my eyes you shine
Distracted like in a dream, I trail after you
I found my love, I met my long-time dream
The one and only love, always

Like you swallowed the moon,
Your eyes are dazzling
In the darkness of the night sky,
You’re like a hanging moonbeam
Before anybody else sees you
I want to hide you in my embrace
and keep you all to myself

Even if I brush past you
My heart beats hard, you don’t know anything
Reaching for your fingertips, you disappear
That’s not the kind of dream
The love I’m looking for is you

I see only you, in my eyes you shine
Distracted like in a dream, I trail after you
I found my love, I met my long-time dream
The one and only love, always

I hear only you,
you’re the only one I’ll put in my heart
I follow your footsteps, I’ll be your walking shadow
I found my love, I fallen for a deep dream
The one and only you, my love always

Shin Min Ah also lends her voice to this 2nd OST as well for “까만달 (Black Moon)”. It’s soft and delicate unlike her character in the drama. It’s a beautiful song and I feel like I’m going to love all the songs in this drama as I already love the first two parts of it.  If you haven’t done so yet, I would also check out Jang Jae In’s “환상 (Fantasy)”.

Next up, it’s Two Two’s “바람 난 여자 (Cheating Woman)”.  Answer Me 1997 has me looking back at a lot of my old school K-Pop.  This song is the ringtone that Sung Shi Won has on her cell phone.  I had wanted to feature Two Two before but didn’t really have an opportunity until now.

The group went through several member changes throughout their run.  It started out as 3 males, 1 female group because two plus two equal four members.  Then they changed that up for 2 males. 2 females for the 2ndalbum.  This numerical seemed to make more sense in regards to the name of their group.  They were a cute group and their style was often quirky and childish.  I remember they even got dressed up in bright clown costumes for their first album.

The only members I remember are Kim Ji Hoon who was the lead male vocal and Hwang Hye Young who was the lead female vocal.  Hwang Hye Young was known for her non-smiling face and vapid expressions.  It was her concept for the group.  I don’t know.  I didn’t like her that much back then and recently I learned that she dated someone I wholeheartedly fangirled back in high school.  Arrrgh!  Even more of a reason not to like her.  I’m watching you, Hwang Hye Young!  Personally I really liked Kim Ji Hoon and his voice.  He knew how to belt it out and hit those high notes.


“바람 난 여자 (Cheating Woman)” was a cute summer song about a guy who thinks his girlfriend might be cheating on him.  You get to hear both sides of the story; his and hers.  It’s weird how I compare cheating with cute but when you listen to the upbeat track and see the dance it’s hard not to smile a bit.  And oh yeah, I still remember it but hell no you can’t make me dance to it.  Lol.

투투 – 바람 난 여자

바람 난 여자

별일 아니라 생각했어~
이시간이 지나면 괜찮겠지
니가 요즘 너무 이상했지
올것이 왔나봐.

지금은 모두가 곤히 잠든시간인데
왜 계속 통화중인거야?
어제도 나한테 그랬잖아
내가 제일 좋다고…

너 지금 통화하는 사람
너 좋아한다 말하는거 아니겠지
나 지금 너에게 가고있어
너 유혹하는 바람 막으러

달려가며 나 생각했어
이번엔 가만히 않있겠다고
네가 요즘 너무 달라었지
넌 나에게 글럴수 없을걸

지금은 모두가 곤히 잠든시간인데
왜 계속 통화중인거야?
어제도 나한테 그랬잖아
날 사랑 한다고

너 지금 통화하는 사람
너 좋아한다 말하는거 아니겠지
나 지금 너에게 가고있어
너 유혹하는 바람 막으러

나역시 너에게 전화를걸고 있었지..
너왜통화중인거야
그러다 어머니가 전화받았지
너 지금 만나겠다고

너 지금 통화하는 사람
너 좋아한다 말하는거 아니겠지
나 지금 너에게 가고있어
너 유혹하는 바람 막으러

Cheating Woman

I didn’t think much of it~
Thought it would be fine after some time passed
Lately you’ve been so strange
Maybe the thing that was coming came

It’s the hour when everyone’s fast asleep
But why is the phone continuously busy?
Even yesterday you said that to me
That you like me best

The person you’re talking with now
They’re not saying they like you, are they?
I’m going to you now
To block the wind that’s tempting you

I thought about it while running
This time I’m not going to leave it alone
Recently you’ve been very different
You can’t do this to me

It’s the hour when everyone’s fast asleep
But why is the phone continuously busy?
Even yesterday you said that to me
That you’re in love with me

The person you’re talking with now
They’re not saying they like you, are they?
I’m going to you now
To block the wind that’s tempting you

Obviously I was dialing the phone to call you
Why is the phone busy?
And so, your mom picked up the phone
Saying that you’re coming to meet me now

The person you’re talking with now
They’re not saying they like you, are they?
I’m going to you now
To block the wind that’s tempting you
