By the time this post is published, I probably had just spent the whole day daydreaming. I would have met my one and only (?) 데니오빠~

Okay, fine, I’m not going to go all crazy about it here~

When this post is published, I probably am on the airplane back home actually.

GASA #2 故신해철 (Shin HaeCheol) – 그대에게 (To You)

GASA #2

My deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the great legend, 故신해철 (late Shin Haechul). He had left behind lots of beautiful songs, and his legend will continue to live on.

STEP 1. Read

故신해철 – 그대에게

숨 가쁘게 살아가는 순간 속에도
우리는 서로 이렇게 아쉬워하는걸
아직 내게 남아있는 많은 날들을
그대와 둘이서 나누고 싶어요

내가 사랑한 그 모든 것을 다 잊는다 해도
그대를 포기할 수 없어요
이 세상 어느 곳에서도
나는 그대 숨결을 느낄 수 있어요

내 삶이 끝나는 날까지
나는 언제나 그대 곁에 있겠어요
내가 사랑한 그 모든 것을 다 잃는다 해도
그대를 포기할 수 없어요

이 세상 어느 곳에서도
나는 그대 숨결을 느낄 수 있어요
내 삶이 끝나는 날까지
나는 언제나 그대 곁에 있겠어요

이 세상 어느 곳에서도
나는 그대 숨결을 느낄 수 있어요
내 삶이 끝나는 날까지
나는 언제나 그대 곁에 있겠어요

STEP 2. Comprehension

  1. If you are a beginner, read through the lyrics with the comprehensive translation.
  2. If you are a more advanced learner, SKIP THE FOLLOWING ENGLISH TRANSLATION and just read the Korean lyrics again to get the general meaning of the lyrics.

Pororo is your best friend!! I know there are English versions broadcasting, but I find the Korean version a hundred times cuter!!

I might or might not post notes for these kids shows. Sit back and enjoy and see if you can understand before going on to read my transcript!

 

I have a little beginner lesson(?) in the end!!

GASA #1 B1A4 – 가나다송 (Korean Alphabet Song)

Before we begin… I just want to make sure of a few things

YOU SHOULD love music! 😀

YOU SHOULD know the alphabet already, if not, watch this super comprehensive lesson. (*note that this is 35 minutes long, and I recommend breaking it into two sessions or so, but super comprehensive as I said)

YOU SHOULD NOT read the Romanization! Seriously, it might make you feel great at first, but believe me, it will screw things up.

YOU SHOULD NOT, NO, NEVER bash any artist on this site. (There are artists I don’t like out there, but bashing is unacceptable in so many ways)

***

Housekeeping aside, let’s embark on our journey!!

This series is called GASA because가사 means lyrics in Korean!!

As a first post I will choose a song that is fun that expresses my love for 한글(Hangeul), the Korean writing system!

The Ganada Song, sang by B1A4, is for a commercial for LINE (*disclaimer: I am not associated with LINE corp. by any means)
