[Seven] 힘내세요! ^^

Printer-friendly version
Hello readers,

How are you doing today? I hope you’re getting together with your families and friends and are enjoying great time together during the holidays. For those of you who are still working, I say to you hwa-ee-ting 화이팅 and him-nae-sae-yo힘내세요 (the equivalent to 加油 “add oil” in Chinese ^^ and げんきだしてください or がんばって下さい in Japanese ). If you translated 힘내세요 into English, its meaning is probably closest to “be strong”.  ^^




In the spirit of giving this season, in today’s blog entry, I would like to share with you a song that I like to listen to be encouraged these days. The music video for the song makes me want to go back to Korea this winter. Haha next year!

If you follow me on twitter (click here to follow), you may have noticed how my favourite song at the moment is “S.E.O.U.L” by 소녀시대 (Girls’ Generation, aka SNSD) & 슈퍼주니어 (Super Junior, aka Suju). For those of you who may not be familiar, 소녀시대 and 슈퍼주니어 are two of the most popular Korean pop artists. 소녀시대 is a girl group with nine girls-yes n-i-ne. That’s nothing though…슈퍼주니어 has 13 guys.

Super Junior

Anyways, I hope the song will encourage you, especially if you are working this winter and I hope you’ll be inspired to learn more about Korea and visit soon :)



Below are the lyrics with my attempted translation of the song :) (It's not a word-per-word translation. I was focusing on the meaning ^^)

어느새 하루가 또 지나고 집으로 향한 나의 발걸음
A day has already passed and I am heading home
부푼 가슴에 첨 시작했던 그 맘 그대로
I am tired, but I am trying to remember why I was so excited in the beginning.

가끔은 피곤한 일상 속에 지쳐버린 내 몸을 이끌고
Even when I am tired, I can still walk

길을 따라서 숨쉬고 있는 나의 자유
and breath. I feel so free!

 

Yes 느껴봐 희망 가득한 세상
Yes-feel it, a world full of hope.

Yes 저기 높은 미랠 향해서
Yes-look to our bright future.

S.E.O.U.L함께 불러봐요 꿈이 이뤄질 아름다운 세상
S.E.O.U.L, let's sing it together for a world where dreams come true.

어디서나 즐거운 일이 넘치는 곳 사랑해
I love it here where there is always something fun happening.

S.E.O.U.L함께 외쳐봐요 어디서라도 웃을 수 있는
S.E.O.U.L, let's shout it out together-for a world where we can smile and 

행복 모두가 하나되는 세상
be full of happiness and be united.



어느새 커져버린 내 모습 후회 없이 살진 않았는지
Time goes by so quickly.I am all grown up. I wonder if I have any regrets.

부푼 희망에 첨 설레었던 그 맘 그대로
It doesn't matter. I want to go back to the time when I was excited for the future.

알 수 없는 내일이 궁금해 어렵고 험한 일이 생겨도
I don't know what's going to happen tommorow. Even if there are storms ahead,

견딜 수 있어 내게 부끄럽지 않도록
I can get through it.

Yes 느껴봐 희망 가득한 세상
Yes-feel it, a world full of hope.

Yes 저기 높은 미랠 향해서
Yes-look to our bright future.

S.E.O.U.L함께 불러봐요 꿈이 이뤄질 아름다운 세상
S.E.O.U.L, let's sing it together for a world where dreams come true.

어디서나 즐거운 일이 넘치는 곳 사랑해
I love it here where there is always something fun happening.


S.E.O.U.L함께 외쳐봐요 어디서라도 웃을 수 있는
S.E.O.U.L, let's shout it out together-for a world where we can smile and

행복 모두가 하나되는 세상 만들어요.
be full of happiness and be united.

두려운 날도 때론 힘이 들 때도 모두가 힘을 모아 꿈의 날갤 펼쳐요
In days when we are afraid or when we feel tired, we need to come together.



S.E.O.U.L 함께 불러봐요 꿈이 이뤄질 아름다운 세상
S.E.O.U.L, let's it sing together for a world where dreams come true

어디서나 즐거운 일이 넘치는 곳 사랑해
I love it here where there is always something fun happening.


S.E.O.U.L함께 외쳐봐요 어디서라도 웃을 수 있는
S.E.O.U.L, let's shout it together-for a world where we can smile

행복 모두가 하나되는 세상 만들어요.
and be full of happiness.
