-note: ITALICS are sung in English

[GD] It’s all about you, my Butterfly

[Jin Jung]
Every time I come close to you
[GD] (Every time I’m feeling you)
Feel like I’m gonna dream every time
(I get butterfly)

[GD] (Check it) I inadvertently look at the sky like
It looks so similar to your smile
It’s exceptionally dazzling
ooh baby
My day consists of our romantic drama
It makes me cry and smile
(no, no, no)
I can’t fall asleep (I try calling your name)
You shyly turn your head away
(no matter what)
I like you this way, but I don’t know how to start this off
(You don’t know how much I love you)

[Jin Jung]
Every time I come close to you
[GD] (Every time I’m kissing you)
Feel like I’m gonna dream every time (hey girl)
(I get butterfly)

[GD] (Beautiful girl)
I inadvertently look at the ground
Your name, those three letters
It makes me so flustered
ooh baby
Your small wounds
I’ll heal them for you
(With) My love for you, oh
(every time)
Yo, you’re like a butterfly
Flying around searching for flowers, like a child (With purity held in your eyes,
no matter what)
(Yea) Your light gestures
The twinkle in your eyes
Look what’s happened to me
(You’re the only one girl, one love, one life, yea)

(I got you)

[Jin Jung]
Every time I come close to you
(Every time I’m holding you)
Feel like I’m gonna dream every time
(I get butterfly)

All your promises to yourself make me worried
Just another days, it’s all the same, why’s it so complicated?
Though you don’t trust guys (why?)
Love can be forever
Why do you push and pull
Can’t you try to be more honest?
Look into my eyes –
you see my eyes, see my lips, you listen to my heart (listen)
If you can hear me, answer me; kiss my cheek and heart, (it’s a) natural high
(Ooh-wee) Yea, that’s we, all I’m saying is
If we’re filled with excitement
(Then) We,
never, ever will break up
Trust me I’ll make love with you

(Sing it)

[Jin Jung]
Every time I come close to you
[GD] (Every time I’m feeling you)
(Every day, every night) Feel like I’m gonna dream every time
(I get butterfly)

Yea, you’re special to me
It’s your turn
(La la la, la la la la~)
Yea, my butterfly

Taeyang, “I Want To Love Someone Now” (Interview)

November 22, 2009

In ‘Look at Only Me,’ he was a man who you couldn’t stop loving even though he’s self-centered. Taeyang (21) is now in unrequited love. He came back as ‘Taeyang,’ not as ‘Big Bang’ with a song, ‘Wedding Dress’ that talks about a man who experiences unrequited love and how he feels miserable. It has been a year and a 1/2 since his first solo mini album release.

How much he has been changed? Taeyang, off stage,  is 21 years old and still shy. He, who isn’t good with strangers said, “There a reason why I can’t appear in variety shows like Seungri,” and smiled awkwardly.

Like what one fellow singer quoted, “Taeyang’s performance on stage was the best in Korea,” Taeyang is a person who has strong charisma that no one can approach on a stage. But, you will be surprised once again for his sweet charm if you meet him in comfortable environment.

But this man, hopelessly smiled as he said, “I’ve never dated before.”

“Maybe because I have a strong confidence that music is my only outlet; I never got a chance to date because I was focusing on music and performing. But I think my image is leaning on ‘a guy who never dated before’ too much (laughs). I never had time to date; I didn’t mean this to happen intentionally.”

Taeyang said he wrote about how he felt when he used to like someone for ‘Wedding Dress.’ He does know how to love, not just work.

Music, of course, is Taeyang’s life. Taeyang is here because of music and it gives him energy to live.

“(For me) Music is… it’s hard to explain with a word, but it’s becoming an important and necessary existence as time passes by. I was always happy whenever I received a good song or when I am on a stage with that song. Honestly, I think I will have a hard time if I think about music not existing in this world. (Meaning,) music brings very important meaning to not only me, but to everyone.”

Conversations always went back to music from any topic. Music is the driving force that helps him stay alive. He willingly gave up the happiness that he could’ve had during his childhood, and he’s ready to endure all the hardships that he has to go through for his future.

“I started this because I love it. I want to focus on music now.”

But he’s recently developed a small desire to get rid of the “guy who’s never dated” tag that’s been attached to him since he turned 20.

“I really want to break out of that ‘guy who’s never dated’ status. Hahaha.”

Reporter gave him an advice that “you should date secretly since it would be difficult if there’s a scandal,” but Taeyang said, “I will give you a call later when I get a girlfriend. I want to tell people fast,” he bragged. He can’t have a girlfriend because he doesn’t think he has the confidence to be nice to her.

“Singers may look flamboyant, but patience and pain follows it. So I thought many singers would feel lonely like me. I don’t think you can do anything about that feeling of loneliness even if you have someone you love. I still have a lot of things to do since I just released my second single. I was lucky until now, but it’s going to be hard from now on. I need to work fiercely. I feel more responsible for my words, actions, and music, especially when I am getting a lot of attention.”

21 years old, and he’s already thinking too maturely, but he thinks it’s just a start.

“I still have a long way to go. There are only 2 albums under my name. I actually didn’t take a first step since I didn’t release an actual album. I received a lot of love and support compared to what I brought out. But I like to take each step correctly even if it would take a long time. I think I will be able to make music that people will like for a long time (laughs).”

Everyone has a time when they dream about their future. But once you turn 20, your dream disappears and life gets busy to live everyday. But Taeyang is different – he is living with strong and hot passion just like his name.

A-yo, finally! (Is this what you’ve been waiting for?)
Brand new GD, yea! (I’m all by myself, but it’s all good)
You’re my heartbreaker~ (DJ and YG!)
(Eh, eh, eh, eh) Let me take this song here

I don’t give in no matter what
I’m still useful, I haven’t died yet
Only you caused this damaged body, broken dreams, missing heart
If it’s for you, this one body will fly for;
It will run to where you are
But still you say to me, ‘goodbye, goodbye’

You say you don’t like me, what’s the reason why?
Your annoyed expression that gives everything away makes me sad
But even if I still like you and asked you for a chance
I don’t like the cold look in your eyes when you turn away…

(No, no)

Yo ma heart heart heart heart heart breaker
What did I do wrong?
Yo ma heart heart heart heart heart breaker
No way, no way

Even if you say you’ll leave me
(hey), I won’t be able to acknowledge it (hey)

Let’s see how well you live (without me)
(hey) (Lovers and haters)
This is-this is-tiresome; unsteady
You think lowly of my love?
No way~

Everyday the same question
You say that I have changed
Will you shut your hateful mouth?
Speak after you know who you’re talking to
I’m now
out of control, continually all alone
In that place is where it’s ‘goodbye, goodbye’

You say you don’t like me, what’s the reason why?
The anger in your voice that gives everything away makes me sad
But even if I still like you and asked you for a chance
I hate the cold smile you have when you turn away…

(No, no)

[Repeat Chorus]

(Talk to me girl) I’ll still still be there (inside your turned-off cellphone)
I’ll still still be there (by the mailbox in front of your house)
I’ll still be like that (even if you say we’re strangers)
I will still be there (Whoa, whoa~)

The words, “let’s be together forever,” were only a moment’s sweetness
Why do you act as if nothing’s wrong
Hey, when I’m hurting this much

Yo ma heart heart heart heart heart breaker
What did I do wrong?
Yo ma heart heart heart heart heart breaker
No way, no way

Yo ma heart heart~ (hey) breaker
Yo ma heart heart~ (hey) breaker breaker
H.E.A.R.T. breaker (baby) no way

I’m out.

Taeyang Digital Single [WHERE U AT] Information Released!

October 14, 2009

*do not add to or remove credit lines*

This is YG Entertainment

Big Bang’s Taeyang will be coming out with [Where U At] after 1 year & 5 months since his last solo release.

Taeyang, who left a strong impression on audiences & critics alike with his first solo mini-album [HOT], with hit singles including “Look Only At Me” & “Prayer,” received recognition as the famous idol group, Big Bang’s lead singer, as well as a solo artist through his mini-album.

This Digital Single, “Where U At” was composed & written by Teddy, who brought sensation to the music industry with songs the songs he produced such as “Look Only At Me” & “Prayer” from last year, to this years’ “Lollipop,” 2NE1’s “Fire” & “I Don’t Care.”

The lyrics for “Where U At” were written in consideration of 22-year-old Taeyang, who has never had a girlfriend. The touchy story is reflective of Taeyang’s situation, imagining his future girlfriend who’s out there somewhere.

Much to expect from Taeyang as to what type of style & music he’s going to promote with his activities beginning with “Where U At” to his official album, so please take interest & give support.

Thank you.

“Us, Forever.”

October 6, 2009

this just in… DJ Tukutz from Epik High is getting married & will enlist for military service soon after.

Tukutz (28), whose real name is Kim JungSik, has decided to ask his girlfriend of 10 years, for her hand in marriage.

Soon after, he will be enlisting for military service on October 15th.

He posted the news on Epik High’s official site today.

When asked to comment, Epik High’s side explained that Tukutz’ enlistment date came too sudden, hence the rush for him to do a wedding. The plan was to have Tablo & Kang HyeJung marry first, but Tukutz’ wedding date has been pushed forward due to his military enlistment.

The picture above was taken from Tablo’s blog on titled, “3.”

“우린, 영원. 사랑해 정식아 – Us, forever. Love you, JungSik ah”

3, as in 3 members of Epik High.

personally, i am moved by how powerful such short & simple words have about the entire ordeal. & it couldn’t have been a better picture to represent the LOVE.

Epik High has been a great foundation for my love of korean music, & music in general. they were one of the 1st groups i really got into & without their influence on me, i don’t think i would love hip-hop music as much as i do now.

I was fortunate enough to attend one of their MapTheSoul Concerts (the one in Los Angeles) & it still remains THE BEST concert i’ve ever been to. although i wasn’t in the front, just being in that room full of people in love with music – my eyes & ears could not have asked for more.

although i am sad that funnyman Tukutz will be going away for 2 years, the happier note is that he is marrying the love of his life. for that, we should be happy.

Tablo, the genius with words, couldn’t have captured the essence better in 2 words. “Us, forever.”

Epik High will still be around to give us joy in the music they make & will continue to make. & best believe, they’ll keep us posted on the exciting stuff that’s to come: Tukutz’ wedding, his goodbyes, Tablo’s wedding, & the next High Skool kid (Tablo’s baby).

so thanks Epik High. you’ve given me a lot & i feel that love you share. good luck, & we’ll always be here to support you. waiting…
