Jive Monkey Playlist: 6/23/17

It’s here!  KCON NY is this weekend at the Prudential Center in NJ.  In honor of that, today’s playlist post features all the artists that will be here this weekend.  Whether there are popular songs you may heard before or songs that are not as well-known, here are some of the tracks that I’ve been listening to get pumped for the weekend.

There’s no denying that GFRIEND is cute with their sweet, girl-next-door concept.  “찰칵 (Click)” is an upbeat, medium tempo pop song that has a 90’s vibe.  The theme of the song is capturing the moment with the one you love.  The word “찰칵 (chal-kak)” is an onomatopoeia meaning to “click” as in take a picture.  I feel like only young people can say this word in a cutesy way and get away with that kind of aegyo.  And certainly, GFRIEND fits that image, pun intended.

Here I go I wanna go 자 높이 뛰어봐
산뜻한 멜로디로 휘파람 불어봐 Let’s go
눈부시게 빛난 찰나
좋은 꿈을 꾸는 기분
더 예쁘게 포즈를 좀 취해봐
알쏭달쏭 떠오르는 질문
내 모든 게 낯설어진 하루
느낌도 찡그리던 내 표정도
모두 지나 갈 거야
따스한 햇살 나를 위로 하는 눈 인사에
다시 한 번 일어날래
살짝 웃어봐 Smile 찰칵
셔터 소리가 좋아
여기 나를 봐 Smile
이 순간 다 잊어도 좋아
One Two 한번 더 Smile
좀 더 크게 활짝 웃어봐
내 맘 달콤해지도록
왠지 혼자처럼 느껴질 때
너무 지쳐 무기력해질 때
투명한 풍경 속에
시원하게 바람이 날 스쳐가
푸르른 바다 한 가운데
피어나는 웃음
나의 손을 잡아줄래
살짝 웃어봐 Smile 찰칵
셔터 소리가 좋아
여기 나를 봐 Smile
이 순간 다 잊어도 좋아
One Two 한번 더 Smile
좀 더 크게 활짝 웃어봐
내 맘 달콤해지도록
Here I go I wanna go 자 높이 뛰어봐
산뜻한 멜로디로 휘파람 불어봐 Let’s go
눈부시게 빛난 찰나
좋은 꿈을 꾸는 기분
더 예쁘게 포즈를 좀 취해봐
먼 훗날 이 사진을 보며
빙그레 또 웃을 수 있게
더 행복 할래
아무도 나를 대신 할 수 없어
살짝 웃어봐 Smile 김치 치즈
말해도 좋아
여기 나를 봐 Smile
이 순간 더 즐겨도 좋아
One Two 한번 더 Smile
소리 내어 웃어도 좋아
내 맘 행복해지도록
Here I go I wanna go 자 높이 뛰어봐
산뜻한 멜로디로 휘파람 불어봐 Let’s go
눈부시게 빛난 찰나
좋은 꿈을 꾸는 기분
더 예쁘게 포즈를 좀 취해봐

Here I go I wanna go, now let’s jump up high
With a refreshing melody, whistle, Let’s go
Dazzlingly, shining, that moment
where you dream a good dream
Pose more prettily
Bewilderingly, the question that comes to mind
The day that’s become unfamiliar
Even my feelings, my frowning expression
it’ll all pass
The warm sunshine, the comforting, knowing glance
Makes me want to get up again, once more
Smile slightly, Smile, Click,
the sound of the shutter is nice
Look at me here, Smile,
it’s okay to forget this entire moment
One Two, once more, Smile
Smile a bit more broadly once more
Until it sweetens my heart
Somehow when it feels like I’m alone,
it’s exhausting when I lack energy
Within this clear atmosphere,
the breeze refreshingly brushes past
In the middle of the clear, blue sea,
bursting with laughter
Will you hold my hand?
Smile slightly, Smile, Click,
the sound of the shutter is nice
Look at me here, Smile,
it’s okay to forget this entire moment
One Two, once more, Smile
Smile a bit more broadly once more
Until it sweetens my heart
Here I go I wanna go, now let’s jump up high
With a refreshing melody, whistle, Let’s go
Dazzlingly, shining, that moment
where you dream a good dream
Pose more prettily
Far in the future, as you look at this picture,
so that you’ll smile beamingly again
Do you want to be happier
No one can make that happen in my place
Smile slightly, Smile, Kimchee, cheese,
it’s okay to say it
Look at me here, Smile,
it’s okay to enjoy this moment more
One Two, once more, Smile
it’s okay laugh out loud
so that my heart becomes happier
Here I go I wanna go, now let’s jump up high
With a refreshing melody, whistle, Let’s go
Dazzlingly, shining, that moment
where you dream a good dream
Pose more prettily

HIGHLIGHT is a group that I loved since the early days of Beast.  It has taken some time to adjust to calling them HIGHLIGHT because I was so used to calling them Beast.  The truth is that there are so many Beast hits that I love.  I love that they are group that can do upbeat pop tracks as well as heartbreaking pop ballads.  I can typically find a song of theirs that’ll fit my mood.  And so, I couldn’t quite understand why Cube Entertainment wouldn’t sign over the copyright in the Beast name over to them as I wouldn’t be able to accept another group under this name.  However, I did decide to go with an old track, specifically a track from the drama, Big.  Many people, including myself, has a lot of comments about that drama so say what you will but the truth is that I loved this song from the OST.  I think it’s that I loved the playfulness of this song.  It might be titled, “Hateful Person,” but clearly the song really isn’t about hating that person but quite the opposite.  It’s just about gaining maturity and getting over your ego to admit that you’re in love.  Frankly, that’s how I want to approach all of my romances in my life like a great romantic comedy.

Beast – 미운사람 (Hateful Person)

비스트 (Beast) – 미운사람

미운사람

오늘도 나의 하루는
시계처럼 그대 주윌 맴돌았죠
내일도 나의 하루는
그대 환상으로 채워가죠

아 참 미운사람
그렇게도 내 맘을 모르나요
어떻게 그 예쁜 얼굴을 하고
곰보다도 더 둔한가요

그대가 조금 더 그저 조금 더
지금 내 맘을 알아준다면
오늘은 모두 다 내 맘 모두 다
그대에게 말할께요

떨리는 나의 심장은
이상하게 그댈 보고 뛰고 있죠
차갑던 나의 눈빛은 눈 녹듯이 그댈 따라가죠

아 참 미운사람
그렇게도 내 맘을 모르나요
어떻게 그 예쁜 얼굴을 하고
곰보다도 더 둔한가요

그대가 조금 더 그저 조금 더
이런 내 맘에 다가온다면
내 마음 모두 다 내 맘 모두 다
그대에게 드릴께요

그대가 조금 더 그저 조금 더
지금 내 맘을 알아준다면
오늘은 모두 다 내 맘 모두 다
그대에게 말할께요

그대가 조금 더 그저 조금 더
이런 내 맘에 다가온다면
내 마음 모두 다 내 맘 모두 다
그대에게 드릴께요

Oh, good good day
Oh, good good day
Oh, Happy day

Oh, good good day
Oh, good good day
Oh, Happy day

Hateful Person

Even today, my day is
like a clock, I circle around you
Even tomorrow, my day
is filled with visions of you

Ah, a really hateful person
Like that, do you not know how I feel?
Wearing that lovely face, how
Is it that you’re more dense than a bear

To you, a bit more, just a bit more
If you know how I feel right now
Today, everything, my feelings, all of it
I will tell it to you

Nervous, my heart is
Strangely beating as I look at you
Like my eyes are melting, my cold stare is following you

Ah, a really hateful person
Like that, do you not know how I feel?
Wearing that lovely face, how
Is it that you’re more dense than a bear

To you, a bit more, just a bit more
If you come to me, with how I feel right now
My feelings, everything, my heart, all of it
I will give it to you

To you, a bit more, just a bit more
If you know how I feel right now
Today, everything, my feelings, all of it
I will tell it to you

To you, a bit more, just a bit more
If you come to me, with how I feel right now
My feelings, everything, my heart, all of it
I will give it to you

Oh, good good day
Oh, good good day
Oh, Happy day

Oh, good good day
Oh, good good day
Oh, Happy day

I’m really looking forward to seeing KNK this weekend because I have never seen them in person before and wondering what they would look and sound like live.  Having said that, I really hope that they sing “해, 달, 별 (Sun, Moon, Stars),” which is the title track from their latest album.  I really love the harmony in this track and hope that they sing and dance to it live.  As much as I don’t want to sound superficial but I imagine with the coordination of the dance moves and their tall heights, this could definitely be a performance worth looking forward to.  It definitely looks like a beautiful dream in the music video, doesn’t it?

크나큰(KNK) – 해, 달, 별

해, 달, 별

애써 괜찮은 척 했어
아니 괜찮을 줄 알았어
시간이 지나면 희미하게
곧 사라질 것 같았어

밤이 오면 달처럼 넌 떠오르고
우리 추억이 별처럼 빛나서
눈 감으려 해도 피해보려 해도
계속해 날 비추고 있어

내 전부를 다해 사랑했던 네가
떠나간 그 순간부터
난 아무것도 할 수가 없는데
어떻게 해야 해 난

아무리 벗어나려 해봐도
멀어지려 해봐도
끝없이 너의 주위를 맴돌아
시간이 더 지나도
널 잊으려 해봐도 너를 지울 수 없어
You’re my Sun woo woo
You’re like the Moon woo woo
밤 하늘 가득히 아름답게 빛나는
넌 해 달 별

하루 이틀 시간이 지나갈수록
네가 더 보고 싶어
너도 나와 같은 달을 보고 있을까
하늘에 널 그려 본다

내 전부를 다해 사랑했던 네가
떠나간 그 순간부터
난 아무것도 할 수가 없는데
어떻게 해야 해 난

아무리 벗어나려 해봐도
멀어지려 해봐도
끝없이 너의 주위를 맴돌아
시간이 더 지나도
널 잊으려 해봐도 너를 지울 수 없어
You’re my Sun woo woo
You’re like the Moon woo woo
밤 하늘 가득히 아름답게 빛나는
넌 해 달 별

언젠가는 나도 널 잊을 수 있을까
언제쯤이면 널 지울 수 있을까
해가 지고 달이 뜨면
희미하던 추억이 별처럼 내려와

아무리 벗어나려 해봐도
멀어지려 해봐도
끝없이 너의 주위를 맴돌아
시간이 더 지나도
널 잊으려 해봐도 너를 지울 수 없어
You’re my Sun woo woo
You’re like the Moon woo woo
밤 하늘 가득히 아름답게 빛나는
넌 해 달 별

Sun, Moon, Stars

Pretending hard to be fine,
No, thought you’d be fine
As time passes, faintly,
seemed like it was about to disappear

When night falls, like the moon rises, I think of you
Our memories shine like the stars
Though I try to close my eyes, try to avoid it,
It constantly shines

Giving my all to you whom I loved
From the moment you left me,
I can’t do anything but
What am I to do?

No matter how hard I try to escape it
Or get father away
Endlessly, I circle around you
Even though more time passes
Though I try to forget you, I can’t erase you
You’re my Sun woo woo
You’re like the Moon woo woo
Filling the night sky, beautifully shining
You’re the sun, moon, stars

A day or two, as more time passes
I miss you more
Do you even see the same moon I do
Try to trace you in the heavens

Giving my all to you whom I loved
From the moment you left me,
I can’t do anything but
What am I to do?

No matter how hard I try to escape it
Or get father away
Endlessly, I circle around you
Even though more time passes
Though I try to forget you, I can’t erase you
You’re my Sun woo woo
You’re like the Moon woo woo
Filling the night sky, beautifully shining
You’re the sun, moon, stars

Someday, will I be able to forget you?
When will I be able to erase you?
As the sun sets, the moon rises,
faded memories fall like the stars

No matter how hard I try to escape it
Or get father away
Endlessly, I circle around you
Even though more time passes
Though I try to forget you, I can’t erase you
You’re my Sun woo woo
You’re like the Moon woo woo
Filling the night sky, beautifully shining
You’re the sun, moon, stars

SF9 is a fairly new group for me and I don’t really know many of their songs.  I’ve heard a few tracks here and there and while there does seem room for improvement, I do see potential.  They are more known for their dancing so I do hope to see them in full display this weekend.  Despite that, I went for a medium tempo, jazzy pop track called “머리카락 보일라 (Hide and Seek)” which goes through the cute push and pull aspect of a new relationship.  I also feel that the track showcases their singing talent a bit more than perhaps, their title track.

SF9 – 머리카락 보일라 (Hide and Seek)

에스에프나인(SF9) – 머리카락 보일라 (Hide and Seek)

*머리카락 보일라 = The line is part of a rhyme when kids play hide and seek.  The line literally reads, “Might see the hair on your head,” which is said by the seeker who is teasing everyone that’s hiding by indicating that they will be found.

머리카락 보일라* (Hide and Seek)

Here’s a little song for you girl
Woo yeah
nanananana woo hoo

Hey listen up

왠지 뭔가 말하려는 듯 입술은
오물오물 마치 첫 만남 같이
어색한 공기마저 난 좋아 넌 지금
손이 대신 말하잖아 긴장한 거 맞지
확실해 넌 뭔가 숨기고 있어
no no no no no no no

왜 자꾸 말을 하려다가 말아
귓불이 빨개 안절부절해
나 이거 알아 누가 봐도 이건
야이야이야이야
심장은 두근두근 여기까지 들리잖아 yeah

머리카락 보일라
숨긴다고 네 맘 모를 것 같니
바보야 너만 찾는 내 맘은 왜 몰라
머리카락 보일라 속아주는 것도
힘들 만큼 다 보여 보여
찾을까 말까 잡을까 말까
못 참겠다 솔직히 말할까
머리카락 보일라 라 라
I’m playin’ with love

꼭꼭 숨어야 돼 머리카락 보일라
이건 너에게 하는 내 마음 spoiler
낯간지러워서 이런 말 잘 못 하는데
요즘 자꾸 생각해 너랑 나랑 fall in love
볼 빨개진 널 보면 수줍은 소녀
내 심장박동 조절이 안 돼
넌 마치 자석같이 날 자꾸 끌어당겨
난 지금 널 보면 당장 끌어안을 것 같아

왜 자꾸 놀라
볼 때마다 티나
손끝만 살짝 스쳐도 깜짝
보니까 너 좀 귀여운 거 같아
아이야이야이야
눈빛이 흔들흔들
나까지 다 떨리잖아 yeah

머리카락 보일라
숨긴다고 네 맘 모를 것 같니
바보야 너만 찾는 내 맘은 왜 몰라
머리카락 보일라 속아주는 것도
힘들 만큼 다 보여 보여
찾을까 말까 잡을까 말까
못 참겠다 솔직히 말할까
머리카락 보일라 라 라
I’m playin’ with love

다 알고도 모른 척
나 일부러 그러는 게 아니야
그런 네가 예뻐 보여서
그냥 너무 좋아서

예전과 달리 넌 너란 색을
분명히 나타내 피어난 한 송이 꽃
이젠 그 꽃을 나란 포장지에 담아
너와 나에게 선물하려 해 어때

머리카락 보일라
숨긴다고 네 맘 모를 것 같니
바보야 너만 찾는 내 맘은 왜 몰라
머리카락 보일라 속아주는 것도
힘들 만큼 다 보여 보여
찾을까 말까 잡을까 말까
못 참겠다 솔직히 말할까

머리카락 보일라 라 라
머리카락 보일라 라 라
머리카락 보일라 라 라
I’m playin’ with love

Hide and Seek*

Here’s a little song for you girl
Woo yeah
nanananana woo hoo

Hey listen up

Lips that seem like they want to say something
Wriggling, like our first meeting
With this awkward air, I like you right ow
Hands do the talking instead, you’re nervous, right?
You’re certainly hiding something
no no no no no no no

Why do you keep starting to say something then stop?
Your earlobes are red, you’re antsy
I know this, no matter who sees, this
Yah ee yah ee yah yi yah
Hear you heart thumping from here, yeah

Hide and seek,
Even though you try to hide it, think I won’t know how you feel?
Dummy, why wouldn’t I know whose heart only searches for you
Hide and seek, even pretending to be deceived
As much as it’s hard, I see it, see it all
Shall I find you or not, shall I catch you or not
Can’t find you, should I ask honestly?
Hide and seek, la la
I’m playin’ with love

Hide really, really well, or your hair might show
This is my feeling towards you, spoiler
Embarrassed, I can’t say these words well
Recently, I keep thinking of you and I, fall in love
Reddened cheeks, when I see you, shy boy
Can’t control my heart rate
Just like a magnet, you reel me in
When I see you now, it’s like I might hug you immediately

Why do you keep getting surprised?
It’s obvious whenever I see you
Even if I brush past slightly with my fingertips, you jump
Seeing that, you’re really cute
Ah ee yah ee yah ee yah
Your stare wavers, wavers
Even I’ve become nervous, yeah

Hide and seek,
Even though you try to hide it, think I won’t know how you feel?
Dummy, why wouldn’t I know whose heart only searches for you
Hide and seek, even pretending to be deceived
As much as it’s hard, I see it, see it all
Shall I find you or not, shall I catch you or not
Can’t find you, should I ask honestly?
Hide and seek, la la
I’m playin’ with love

Even though I know it, pretending I don’t
I’m not doing it deliberately
Because you look pretty like that
Just really like you

Different from before, you have your own colors
Clearly represent a blooming flower
Now that flower is placed in my wrapping paper
Trying to give a gift to you and I, how about it?

Hide and seek,
Even though you try to hide it, think I won’t know how you feel?
Dummy, why wouldn’t I know whose heart only searches for you
Hide and seek, even pretending to be deceived
As much as it’s hard, I see it, see it all
Shall I find you or not, shall I catch you or not
Can’t hold back, should I tell you honestly

Hide and seek, la la
Hide and seek, la la
Hide and seek, la la
I’m playin’ with love

When Zion.T left Amoeba Culture for YG, I have to admit that I was a little bit surprised.  And then Crush left that curious message on his SNS which had all of us wondering if he was hurt that his bestie left him for another company.  I’d like to believe that these two artists, who are adorably derpy at times, work out whatever was going on because some of my favorite songs from the two are when they feature on songs for each other.  Their melodies feel so familiar, comforting and relatable, all-in-one.  In fact, Zion.T and Crush have this incredible talent for finding a tune or a song concept that may seem incredibly trivial but yet carries a deeper, thought-provoking meaning.  “뻔한 멜로디 (Obvious Melody)” is one of those hits.

Zion.T – 뻔한 멜로디 (Feat. Crush)

뻔한 멜로디 (feat. Crush)

카페에 앉아있다 보면
지겹도록 지겹게
이런 노래만 나오더라고
듣고픈 것만 들리더라고

설렘, 두근거림
기분 좋은 그녀의 목소리
변했어 난, 예전과 달라
널 떠올리면 노래부르고 싶어

뻔한 사랑 얘기 중 하나
노래하게 될 줄은 난 몰랐어
뻔한 멜로디
뻔하지, 말이
뻔한 사랑 노래

사람 감정이 다 똑같잖아
슬프면 울고, 웃기면 웃고
나도 그들 중 하나
사랑 이야기라니 하하하

하루종일 거리를 걷다보면
지겹도록 지겹게
이런 노래만 나오더라고
듣기 싫은 것만 들리더라고

아픔, 상처 지독하게 다퉜던 우리
넌 이게 날 위한 이별이라 말했었지
너도 똑같이 아파할걸 알아
미안해 부디 행복하게 살아

뻔한 사랑얘기 중 하나
노래하게 될 줄은 난 몰랐어
뻔한 멜로디
뻔하지, 말이
뻔한 이별 노래

사람 감정이 다 똑같잖아
슬프면 울고, 그러다 또 울고
나도 그들 중 하나
이별 이야기라니 하하하

하하
아, 하
하 하

Obvious Melody (feat. Crush)

Sitting for a while at a café
Tediously tedious
Only this song came out
Even if it’s one I wanted to listen to

Excitement, fluttering
Pleasant, her voice
I’ve changed, different from before
When I think of you, I want to sing a song

One, amongst those obvious love words
Didn’t know that I’d be singing
Obvious melody
It’s obvious, the words
An obvious love song

People’s feelings are all the same
When they’re sad, they cry, when they’re happy, they laugh
I’m just one of those people
That it’s a love story, ha ha ha

All day long, when I walk the streets
Tediously, tedious
Only this song came out
Only heard things that I didn’t want to hear

Pain, hurt, us who have fought intensely
You said this breakup was on my behalf
I know that you’ll be in pain just like me
Sorry, please be happy

One, amongst those obvious love words
Didn’t know that I’d be singing
Obvious melody
It’s obvious, the words
An obvious love song

People’s feelings are all the same
When they’re sad, they cry, and like that, they cry again
I’m just one of those people
That it’s a breakup story, ha ha ha

Ha ha
Ah, ha
Ha ha

There are a lot of songs in CNBLUE’s repertoire that I love.  Definitely “Can’t Stop” is my all-time favorite song, which I’m trying to teach myself to play on the piano.  However, I heard this song by chance as I was shuffling my music.  “Try Again, Smile Again” is a song that I first heard on their “FIRST STEP +1 THANK YOU (EP)” mini album and it’s such a reassuring song.  I dare you not to smile when you hear it as it is about chasing your dreams and just believing that you can do it.  Similar to when Daebak tries to climb that sand mountain in Busan on Superman Returns and keeps telling himself, ‘I can do it!’  It’s that pure innocence and drive that I think of when this song plays.

CNBLUE – Try Again, Smile Again

CNBLUE – Try Again, Smile Again

Try Again, Smile Again

누군가의 시선이 누군가의 외침이
내 땀의 이유를 느끼게해
망가진 내맘속에서 익숙한 음악속에서
내삶의 이유를 느끼곤해

화려한 네온불빛 모두다 내겐 무의미해져
낡은 기타와 노래할수있는 희망이 있잖아

I am gonna
Try again Try again Back again
돌아갈래 처음의 그 마음으로
Smile again Smile again Back again
날아가 날 이끌 먼곳을 보며

누군가의 눈속에 누군가의 맘속에
내 땀의 이유가 전해지길
수많은 나날속에서 그 흔한 추억속에서
내삶의 이유를 생각해봐
소박한 가로등도 모두 다 같은 조명일거야
나에겐 그저 내꿈과 사랑을
노래할수있다면

I am gonna
Try again Try again Back again
돌아갈래 처음의 그 마음으로
Smile again Smile again Back again
날아가 날 이끌 먼곳을 보며

I am gonna
Smile again Smile again Back again
자유롭게 흐르는 저 강을 보며
Smile again Smile again Back again
웃을래 날 이끌 저 먼 곳 보며

I am gonna
Try again Try again Back again
돌아갈래 처음의 그 마음으로
Smile again Smile again Back again
날아가 날 이끌 먼곳을 보며

Try Again, Smile Again

Someone’s line of sight, someone’s shout
Feel the reason for my sweat
Inside my broken heart, inside this familiar melody
Feel the reason for living

Bright, this neon light, everyone becomes meaningless
Worn guitar and the strength to do music

I am gonna
Try again Try again Back again
Want to go back to the beginning, to that feeling
Smile again Smile again Back again
Fly away, leading me as I look far away

Someone’s eyes, someone’s heart
Conveying the reason for my sweat
Inside countless days, inside those ordinary memories
Think about my reason for living
Even that simple streetlight, all the lights are the same
To me, just my dream and love
If I can just sing

I am gonna
Try again Try again Back again
Want to go back to the beginning, to that feeling
Smile again Smile again Back again
Fly away, leading me as I look far away

I am gonna
Smile again Smile again Back again
As I look at the freely flowing river there
Smile again Smile again Back again
Will you smile, leading me as I look far away

I am gonna
Try again Try again Back again
Want to go back to the beginning, to that feeling
Smile again Smile again Back again
Fly away, leading me as I look far away

NCT 127 is another fairly new group, technically a sub-unit of NCT, and not all of their songs are great but I definitely found “Good Thing” to be incredibly catchy. It has a signature brass sound with a strong bass and the rhythm and repetitive made the song stick in my head.

NCT 127 – Good Thing

NCT 127 – Good Thing

Good Thing

복잡한 이 도시를 깨워
회색 빛 거리
저 신호등 아래
어깨를 익숙하게 흔들어 (어깨를)
빨리 더 빨리
손 끝의 울림 (더 깊이 더 깊이)

I just want to feel good all night long oh

이 순간이 good thing (woo)
good thing (Woo)
날 보는 너 good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing)
이 시간은 good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing babe)

good thing (good thing)
더 아래로 Ooh
이 리듬에 Ooh
밤새도록 Ooh
너와 함께 Ooh
더 신나게

우린 밤새 놀아 together (우린)
터지는 마음에 (밤새)
뜨거워진 공기
음악은 널 채운 treasure
(내 마음의 Treasure)
느끼는 데로
조금 더 신나게 (널 멈추지 마)

Give me what you got
because you know that I can take it
Give me what you got 여긴
나의 place space ship
whipping cream 가볍게 up to the sky
나아가 flex, flex one’s muscles
Step up if you can keep up, keep up with me
숨 크게 한 번 쉬고 들어가자 really deep
시끄럽게 춤을 추는 거야 daily
Until we get that good thing babe

I just want to feel good all night long oh

이 순간이 good thing (woo)
good thing (Woo)
날 보는 너 good thing (good thing)

날 보는 너 good thing
good thing
이 시간은 good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing babe)
더 가볍게 good thing
good thing
더 아래로 Ooh
이 리듬에 Ooh
밤새도록 Ooh
너와 함께 Ooh
더 신나게
더 신나게
더 신나게
더 신나게

Good Thing

Complex, this city wakes up
Grayly lit street
Beneath that traffic light
Shaking my shoulders adeptly (shoulders)
Faster, even faster
Reverberating my fingertips (Even deeper, even deeper)

I just want to feel good all night long oh

This moment, good thing (woo)
good thing (Woo)
Me looking at you, good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing)
This time is, good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing babe)
More lightly, good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing)
Further down, Ooh
With this rhythm, Ooh
All night long, Ooh
With you, Ooh
More excitedly

We play together all night, together (us)
With a bursting heart (all night)
The air becoming hotter
Music fills you up, treasure
(My heart’s Treasure)
As I feel it
A bit more excitedly, (don’t you stop)

Give me what you got
because you know that I can take it
Give me what you got, here,
my place space ship
whipping cream, lightly, up to the sky
Advancing, flex, flex one’s muscles
Step up if you can keep up, keep up with me
With a big breath, rest on, let’s go in, really deep
Dance loudly, daily
Until we get that good thing babe

I just want to feel good all night long oh

This moment, good thing (woo)
good thing (Woo)
Me looking at you, good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing)
This time is, good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing babe)
More lightly, good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing)
Further down, Ooh
With this rhythm, Ooh
All night long, Ooh
With you, Ooh
More excitedly

I just want to feel good all night long oh

This moment, good thing
good thing
Me looking at you, good thing
good thing
This time is, good thing (good thing)
good thing (good thing babe)
More lightly, good thing
good thing
Further down, Ooh
With this rhythm, Ooh
All night long, Ooh
With you, Ooh
More excitedly
More excitedly
More excitedly
More excitedly

After their hit “T T,” I thought it would be hard to follow it up with another catchy hit.  I mean, I must have replayed “T T” so many times.  Definitely all of last summer and then some.  However, “KNOCK KNOCK” just happened to worm it’s way into my head with “knock knock knock knock knock on my door”.  Not to mention that but the dance has become a hit as well.  Again.  I could see why these girls with their vivacious personalities keep rocketing to the top of the K-Pop charts.

TWICE(트와이스) – KNOCK KNOCK

KNOCK KNOCK

열두시가 되면 닫혀요
조금만 서둘러 줄래요
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
밤이 되면 내 맘속에
출입문이 열리죠
누군가 필요해 (Someone else!)
자꾸자꾸 서성이네
몰래 몰래 훔쳐보네
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
보나마나 또 playboy
떠보나마나 bad boy
확신이 필요해 (Knock knock!)
내 맘이 열리게 두드려줘
세게 쿵! 쿵! 다시 한번 쿵! 쿵!
Baby knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock knock
쉽게 열리지는 않을 거야
(say that you’re mine!)
내일도 모레도 다시 와줘
준비하고 기다릴게 (knock knock)
Baby knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock knock
들어도 계속 듣고 싶은 걸
Knock on my door
필요 없어 gold key or get lucky
진심이면 everything’s gonna be okay
어떡해 벌써 왔나 봐
잠시만 기다려 줄래요?
혼자 있을 때 훅 들어와
정신 없이 날 흔들어 놔
지금이 딱 널 위한 show time
(make it yours!)
댕 댕 울리면
매일 찾아와줄래
뱅뱅 돌다간 잠들어 버릴 걸요
Knock knock knock knock

세게 쿵! 쿵! 다시 한번 쿵! 쿵!
Baby knock knock knock knock

KNOCK KNOCK

When it becomes 12, it closes
Will you hurry up a bit
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
When it becomes night, in my heart
The exit opens
I need someone (Someone else!)
Keeps, keeps hanging around
Secretly, secretly looking
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Undoubtedly, again playboy
Even if I feel you out, bad boy
I need certainty (Knock knock!)
So that my heart opens up, knock on it
Hard, Knock! Knock! Once again, Knock! Knock!
Baby knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock knock
It won’t open easily
(say that you’re mine!)
Tomorrow, the day after next, come again
I’ll be ready and waiting (knock knock)
Baby knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock knock
Hear it but keep wanting to hear it
Knock on my door
Don’t need it, gold key or get lucky
If you’re earnest, everything’s gonna be okay
What do I do? He must have arrived already
Will you just wait a moment?
When I was alone, you swooped in
Frantically, you shake me up
Right now is just for you, show time
(make it yours!)
Ring, ring, when it rings,
will you come find me every day?
After turning round and round, you’ll fall right asleep
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Come in come in
come in baby take my hands
So that my heart opens up, knock on it
Hard, Knock! Knock! Once again, Knock! Knock!
Baby knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock knock
It won’t open easily
(say that you’re mine!)
Tomorrow, the day after next, come again
I’ll be ready and waiting (knock knock)
Baby knock knock knock knock

Knock knock knock knock knock
Hear it but keep wanting to hear it
Knock on my door
Hey hey
When this time passes
My hardened heart, my, my heart
Like ice cream, it’ll melt
Come knock on my door
So that my heart opens up, knock on it
Hard, Knock! Knock! Once again, Knock! Knock!
Baby knock knock knock knock
knock on my door
Knock knock knock knock knock
It won’t open easily

I had honestly thought that I featured this song before on this post but discovered that I hadn’t.  On the one hand, I’m glad I didn’t because I don’t know many of their other songs.  However, I can’t believe that I hadn’t featured this song yet.  If ASTRO was the aegyo boy group featured at last year’s KCON, then I think Up10Tion will win this year’s award amongst the boy idols.  “오늘이 딱이야 (夜半逃走) (Today’s Perfect (Nighttime Escape)” is definitely that song.   What’s interesting about the song is that the melody makes the track innocent but if you simply read the lyrics, it could sound very different.  Don’t get me wrong.  I only think pure thoughts.  Ha.  But I think this song has the right blend of naughty and nice, which is how I like all my boy groups.  Because what is youth without a little mischief?

업텐션(Up10Tion) – 오늘이 딱이야 (夜半逃走)

오늘이 딱이야 (夜半逃走)

아무도 몰래 오 슈비두밥
오랜만에 둘이서
멀리 도망쳐 볼까
들키지 않게 오 슈비두밥
모두가 잠든 후에 저질러 버릴 거야

가슴이 너무 두근거려 너를 볼 때면
하루 종일 생각나서 난 참기 힘들어
네가 원하던 말던
네가 허락하던 말던
까짓 거 질러볼까
끝까지 가볼까

우리 쏟아지는 별빛을 보며
아무 말없이 떠나기로 했잖아
Alright 나만 믿어줘 Right
걱정 말래도 괜찮아

아무도 몰래 오 슈비두밥
오랜만에 둘이서
멀리 도망쳐 볼까
들키지 않게 오 슈비두밥
모두가 잠든 후에 저질러 버릴 거야

Yeah, To the left right 들뜬 이 밤
지금 내 눈에는 너무 예쁘니까
넌 갈래 말래 딱 정해
난 원래 그래 다정해

Yo! Wake up 세상이 잠든 시간에
내가 널 데리러 갈게 신나게
Let’s dance on the floor
오늘 우리 둘이 아름다운 밤이야
오늘이 바로 딱이야

수평선이 펼쳐진 그곳, Oh yeah
아무도 방해하지 않을 걸
안 된다고 말하면 안 돼
절대 빈말이 아니야
가자 오늘이 딱이야

아무 이유 없이 너 지칠 때면
모든 걸 잊고 달리기로 했잖아
Alright 나만 믿어줘 Right
어서 따라와 괜찮아 괜찮아

아무도 몰래 오 슈비두밥
오랜만에 둘이서
멀리 도망쳐 볼까
들키지 않게 오 슈비두밥
모두가 잠든 후에 저질러 버릴 거야

기분이 좋아지는 밤
솔직하게 말해봐
이 밤의 끝을 잡아봐
달빛에 속삭여봐
아주 깜깜해진 밤에
너무 답답해진 맘에 불을 지펴봐
대답해줘 갈 거야 말 거야

가슴이 설레 오 슈비두밥
우리 끌어안고서 같이 별을 세볼까
들키지 않게 오 슈비두밥
모두가 잠든 후에 저질러 버릴 거야

우린 텐션이 올라 저 하늘 위로 Baby
오늘은 나도 몰라
그냥 갈 거야 왜 이래
Don’t worry my baby 소리쳐봐 Say it
괜찮아 나만 믿어 나의 Lady
걱정은 내일 해 오늘은 너와 나
단 둘이서만

Today’s Perfect (Nighttime Escape)

Without anyone knowing, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
Been awhile for the two of us,
shall we run far away?
So that we don’t get caught, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
After everyone’s asleep, shall we just do it?

My heart pounds hard when I see you
All day long, I think of you, I can’t hold back
Whether you want it or not
Whether you allow it or not
For what’s it’s worth, let’s make it happen
To the end, shall we go?

As we look at the shooting starlight
Without words, we promised to leave
Alright, just trust in me, Right
Don’t worry, it’s alright

Without anyone knowing, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
Been awhile for the two of us,
shall we run far away?
So that we don’t get caught, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
After everyone’s asleep, shall we just do it?

Yeah, To the left right, on this restless night
Right now in my eyes, you’re very pretty
Do you want to go or not? Make up your mind
I’m usually like that, gentle

Yo! Wake up, when the world is asleep
I’ll go and get you, enthusiastically
Let’s dance on the floor
Today is our beautiful night for us two
Today is just perfect

To that place where the horizon is laid out, Oh yeah
No one will bother us
You can’t say that we can’t go
This isn’t idle talk
Let’s go, today’s perfect

When you get tired for no reason
Forget it all and let’s ride
Alright, just trust in me, Right
Come on and follow me, it’s alright, it’s alright

Without anyone knowing, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
Been awhile for the two of us,
shall we run far away?
So that we don’t get caught, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
After everyone’s asleep, shall we just do it?

On this feel-good night
Tell me honestly
Let’s hold onto the end of tonight
Whisper in the moonlight
On this very dark night
With this frustrated heart, light a fire
Answer me, are you gonna go or not?

My heart flutters, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
Let’s pull each other close and count the stars together
So that we won’t get caught, oh, shoo-be-doo-bap
After everyone’s asleep, shall we just do it?

Our tension is rising, up to the sky, Baby
I don’t know about today either
I’m just gonna go, what’s wrong with it
Don’t worry my baby, shout out loud, Say it
It’s alright, just trust in me, my Lady
Worry about it tomorrow, today, you and I
Only the two of us
