Jive Monkey Playlist: 4/20/15

I have to admit that when I saw that Jinusean came out with a single, I was pretty skeptical.  It’s been 11 years since their last release but this song feels fresh and nostalgic at the same time.

“한번 더 말해줘 (Tell Me One More Time)” feels very much like an old school Jinusean song.  I suppose it should sound like a Jinusean song since they partly wrote it along with Epik High’s Tablo, P.K, and Fractal.  Featuring on the track is Jang Han Na from K-Pop Star 3 who I assume belongs to the YG label.  I really don’t know much else about her besides that but I’m a little sad that Uhm Jung Hwa was unable to feature on the track as this song makes us think back to  “말해줘 (Tell Me)”.  In case it wasn’t clear, this is the song that’s heard at the beginning of the music video.

Still, it’s an incredibly catchy dance/hip-hop track that I’m sure many will find that they can’t help but move to. For those that didn’t grow up listening to Jinusean, they’ve got a lot of hits which I still listen to today.  This is one song that I think could stand the test of time as well.  Many of the lyrics in the song is a play on many of their previous hits so if you haven’t heard their tracks before it’s worth taking a look at their discography.

As for the music video, it’s a bevy of K-Pop stars ranging from old school to present as well as many familiar variety show faces.  In no particular order, there’s Yoo Jae Suk, Haha, S.E.S’ Shoo, Singer Kim Hyun Jung, Cool’s Kim Sung Soo, Actor/Singer Yang Dong Geun, D.J. DOC, Epik High and Former Basketball Player Seo Jang Hoon.

I think I’ve got them all but there are so many guest stars and they pass by so quickly that I could have missed one or two.  I confess that I didn’t recognize Epik High at first because the70’s sequence was so misty and quick but couldn’t help but laugh when I saw them in the video above.  It’s a fun video worth checking out over and over again.

지누션(Jinusean) – 한번 더 말해줘 (feat. 장한나)

한번 더 말해줘 (feat. 장한나)

오늘도 고민과 걱정에
숙인 고개와 축 처진 어깨
오늘따라 생각이 나
너와 함께였던 예스터데이
Remember?
겁 없던 날들이었어
너와 나 단둘이면
저 구름 위로
새처럼 날아갈 듯했지
너란 날개를 단 마음이어서
We back to hit you
with the Jinusean bomb
난 너와 함께면 돼
매일 밤이 토요일 밤
그땐 한숨을 쉬지도
불안하지도 않았잖아
함께 한 매 순간
아직도 널 사랑해
Ooh mi amore
2099년 끝 날까지도

말해줘! 사랑한다고
나 없이 넌 하루도 살 수 없다고
말해줘! 가지 말라고
어서 말해줘! 망설이지 말고!
한번 더 말해줘

난 난 난 너만 기쁘면
다 줄 수 있는 기부 천사
난 밤이 오면 클럽에서
너를 저 구름 위로
업되게 할 기분 천사
Uh huh! You kids can’t do this
올드보이지만 내 발에
new kicks처럼 fresh하게 all day
우린 오늘 더 행복해
오늘 밤은 무슨 밤? 지누션 밤!
오늘 밤은 무슨 밤? 지누션 밤!
You know my 전화번호
너를 기다려 수십 년도
그래 우린 아직 젊기에
Jinusean’s back up in here!

말해줘! 사랑한다고
나 없이 넌 하루도 살 수 없다고
말해줘! 가지 말라고
어서 말해줘! 망설이지 말고!
한번 더 말해줘
말해 말해 내게 말해줘야 해 야해
말해 말해 다시 말해줘
더 늦기 전에 컴백
back back to me
돌아서기 전에 컴백
back back to me
더 늦기 전에 컴백
back back to me
돌아서기 전에 말해줘
네 마음을 말해줘! 사랑한다고
나 없이 넌 하루도 살 수 없다고
말해줘! 가지 말라고
어서 말해줘! 망설이지 말고!
한번 더 말해줘
말해 말해 내게 말해줘야 해 야해
말해 말해 다시 말해줘
말해 말해 내게 말해줘야 해 야해
말해 말해 다시 말해줘
네 마음을 말해줘

Tell Me One More Time (feat. Jang Han Na)

Today I also agonize and worry over
With a lowered head and slouching shoulders
Somehow today I think of
The yesterday I had with you
Remember?
It was the days we had no fear
If it was just the two of us
Above those clouds
Like a bird flying
Because my heart had wings that were you
We back to hit you
with the Jinusean bomb
Together with you
Every night, Saturday night
Even if we took one breath
We didn’t feel anxious
Every moment spent together
I still love you
Ooh mi amore
Till the end of Year 2099

Tell me! That you love me
Without me you can’t live a single day
Tell me! Not to go
Hurry up and tell me! Don’t hesitate!
Tell me one more time

I, I, I, if only you are happy
Can be a charitable angel that can give everything
When it’s night at the club, I can
Put you on those clouds
An angel that’ll improve your mood
Uh huh! You kids can’t do this
I might be an old boy but on my feet
Like new kicks, fresh, all day
We’re happier now
What night is tonight? Jinusean night!
What night is tonight? Jinusean night!
You know my phone number
I can wait countless years for you
Yeah, we’re still young
Jinusean’s back up in here!

Tell me! That you love me
Without me you can’t live a single day
Tell me! Not to go
Hurry up and tell me! Don’t hesitate!
Tell me one more time
Tell me, tell me, you have to tell me
Tell me, tell me, tell me again
Before it’s too late, come back
back back to me
Before I turn around, come back
back back to me
Before it’s too late, come back
back back to me
Before I turn around, tell me
Tell me how you feel! That you love me
Without me you can’t live a single day
Tell me! Not to go
Hurry up and tell me! Don’t hesitate!
Tell me one more time
Tell me, tell me, you have to tell me
Tell me, tell me, tell me again
Tell me, tell me, you have to tell me
Tell me, tell me, tell me again
Tell me how you feel
