Doushite Kimi Wo Ni Natte Shimattan Darou – DBSK (Tohoshinki)

The first DBSK song that I heard was Doushite Kimi Wo Suki Ni Natte Shimattan Darou (Why did I fall in Love with You). This is a Japanese track of the Korean boy band. I saw it on overstream but I did not take notice of the video as I was not familiar with them back then. When I first saw the video, I thought it was a nice song. I am a sucker for heartbreak songs (I don’t know why hahaha) so it was one of the reasons why I liked it.

This song practically is screaming “heartbreak”… even the title is kind of sad. The video is also a sad one. The girl obviously likes the guy (though the guy was a little skinny) however because the guy is so “torpe” the girl eventually ends up getting married to another guy (look closely at the video, the guy she gets married to is quite old — well older than she is).  But though its a sad song, I love this song!

Doushite Kimi Wo Suki Ni Natte Shimattan Darou Lyrics

Doushite kimi wo suki ni natte shimattan darou?
Donna ni toki ga nagaretemo kimi wa zutto
Koko ni iru to, omotteta no ni
Demo kimi ga eranda no wa chigau michi

Doushite kimi ni nani mo tsutaerarenakattan darou?
Mainichi maiban tsunotteku omoi
Afuredasu kotoba, wakatteta no ni (mou todokanai)

Hajimete deatta, sono hi kara
Kimi wo shitteita ki ga shitan da
Amari ni shizen ni tokende shimatta futari

Doko e iku no ni mo issho de
Kimi ga iru koto ga touzen de
Bokura wa futari de otona ni natte kita
Demo kimi ga eranda no wa chigau michi

Doushite kimi wo suki ni natte shimattan darou?
Donna ni toki ga nagaretemo kimi wa zutto
Koko ni iru to, omotteta no ni (mou kanawanai)

Tokubetsu na imi wo motsu kyou wo
Shiawase kao de tatsu kyou wo
Kirei na sugata de kami sama ni chikatteru, kimi wo

Boku ja nai hito no tonari de
Shukufuku sareteru sugata wo
Boku wa dou yatte miokureba ii no darou?

Mou doushite kimi wo suki ni natte shimattan darou?
Ano koro mo, bokura no koto, mou moderenai (kangaeta) modorenai (kangaeta)

Doushite kimi no te wo tsukami ubaenakattan darou?
Donna ni toki ga nagaretemo kimi wa zutto
Boku no yoko ni, iru hazu datta (sono mama nii)

Sore demo kimi ga boku no soba nara to itte mo
Eien ni kimi ga shiawase de iru koto
Tada negatteru
Tatoe sore ga donna ni sabishikutemo (setsunakutemo)

Doushite Kimi Wo Suki Ni Natte Shimattan Darou Translation

Why did I end up falling for you?
No matter how much time has passed,
I thought that you would always be here
But you have chosen a different road

Why wasn’t I able to convey to you?
My feelings that were growing everyday and night
The words begin to overflow
But I know they won’t reach you now

From the first day that I met you
I felt like I knew you
And the two of us melded together so naturally

Wherever we would go, it would be together
It was so natural for you to be with me
We became adults together
But you chose a different road

Why did I end up falling for you?
No matter how much time has passed,
I thought that you would always be here (but not anymore)

Today, the day that holds a special meaning
The day that you stood with a smile of happiness
Praying to God in your beautiful appearance

With the person next to you who isn’t me
The image of you receiving blessings
How could I just stand aside and watch

So why did I end up falling for you?
We can’t go back to that time, or how we were (I’ve thought it through)

Why wasn’t I able to take your hand?
No matter how much time passes
You always should’ve been by my side
Now it will never come true

But, even though I say that I need you close to me
I just pray that you will be happy forever
No matter how lonely that makes me (or how sad)

Home – Shimizu Shota

Shimizu Shota is one of the rising Jpop stars. I’ve been wanting to post this song for a long time now. The song is the title track of his first single released almost a year ago. The song is called Home. I heard this song one time when we were hanging out at our friend’s house. This is one of her favorite Japanese songs. I asked for a copy and from that time on I could never stop playing the song. Its on my playlist both at work and at home. I hope you would like it too.

Home (Translation)

*CHORUS*
After all this time, I can’t go back to that place…
No matter how wonderful the memories are in my heart, I should put them away.
I still remember to this day. That’s good enough.
Don’t worry. I can still sing.
Someday I’ll return. The home all my own.
*CHORUS*

Quick shower of rain Increasingly irritated heart into a garbage dump
Like that several seasons passed
But I could still hear the voice of my hometown
Full of myself, I flew.
Ended up backstabbing people with farewell regrets.
This kind of crumbling dream, alone there was nothing I could do.

At that time, the people I met…
Surely, people aren’t that strong That’s why
they become swallowed up by jealousy and Ego
But that version of me was tenderly held close. Sorrowfully I cried.
I understood my own weakness.
But my dream came true. I got to liking it a bit.

So I created a home,
Kind of like a huge supportive mansion.
I saw clearly. The world changed.
It became easier to breathe.
Second by second we were growing up, everyone.
That’s why I’m glad we met. I’m glad it happened this way.
And so, I’ve said just about everything.

A place where your heart can be at ease. I suspect everyone has one of these.
The friends I grew up with,
Lovers who’ve been by my side,
I’ve lost them all but… a dream I’d like to fulfill
I’ve lost that too, but once again I’ve been made to remember.
My new home is right here. But I still remember…

*CHORUS*

Not being able to sleep, I see the same dream over and over.
At that time I received the new place, an entirely new beginning
Regardless of the size of reparations to be paid
I want to be more sensitive to the love
because I don’t want to be made to believe it hurts
I don’t want to be forced to give up.

So, I’ve found a means to live
The prejudice-covered common sense crumbles.
If it was put in front of me, almost broken and brittle
but somehow the smile never faded.
It was just like that it seemed. Certainly
it was the first time but miserable yet beautiful.
The clear sky sparkled and twinkled
Right then, once more, we started to cry.

*CHORUS*

If I look back on where I’ve come thus far
The smiles and tears
Shaking and shivering it’d reflect.
That’s me. When you tie it to my future,
I believe it. The home all my own.
because I believe in it.

*CHORUS*

Recommended Drama – Fated to Love You

Before my friend left for China to be a language student, she left me a copy of a Taiwanese drama that she was watching. The drama was called Fated to Love You. During that time I had a lot of catching up to do with the dramas my friends were watching because back then I was so busy with work. I was still watching They Kiss Again at that time. I finally had the chance to watch this drama last October (about a month after my friend left for China) — and surprise suprise i loved it (obviously as I would not be recommending it if I did not like it :D).

The drama tells about the story of a sticky note girl and how she found (and eventually ended up) with the man of her dreams — and  all that was thanks to FATE.

fated-to-love-you

Synopsis

A really unfashionable working class girl Chen Xin Yi has the desire to tie down her handsome boyfriend to be with her. Due to certain reasons, her boyfriend gets her to go on a love cruise and she started to ponder on how to lose her virginity and tie down her boyfriend. Xin Yi ended up taking cold medicine which made her drowsy and went into Ji Cun Xi’s room. Cun Xi is the sole male heir to his family’s company and has been in love with his girlfriend, Anna, for a long time. He planned to propose to Anna on the boat but she didn’t turn up on the cruise. An island owner added drugs into Cun Xi’s drink and Cun Xi became disorientated and returned to his own room. Xin Yi and Cun Xi end up having a one night stand. Xin Yi later finds out that she’s pregnant and Cun Xi’s grandmother forces them to get married. Will a couple forced to marry for the sake of their unborn child find love with each other?

The drama starred Chen Qiao En (Joe Chen) as the sticky note girl Xin Yi (who later became known as Elaine) and Ethan Ruan (Ruan Xiao Tian) as the Cun Xi.  It also starred Baron Chen as Dylan and Bianca Bai as Anna.

Why I loved this drama (warning: spoiler alert)?

I loved this drama because it had a common story — a common story that a common person understands or can relate to. But the common story had twists that adds spice to the story. I also liked the lines that they had (although I could understand it through english subtitles). I especially liked the “words of wisdom” Xin Yi’s mom would tell. Although in the beginning of the drama, you will see that Xin Yi is the daughter who receives the least attention among her sisters, as the story will progress you will know that Xin Yi’s mom is most concerned about her youngest daughter. The series is also a very light one — there were parts that would make you want to cry, but there were also parts that would make you laugh until your stomach would ache. I especially love the part when Cun Xi would be beaten up by Xin Yi mom — the reaction is priceless! The whole story is a balance of comedy and drama.

The proposal (which you will see on ep. 23) is also one of the most romantic ones I’ve seen in the drama. I liked the idea of how they incorporated the sticky note into the proposal — I LOVE U – Z (*_*). The drama’s soundtrack is also one of the best taiwanese soundtracks I’ve heard. I loved the songs and the songs really would fit the scene where they were being played. My heart would ache everytime I hear Jin Xiu Duet’s My Happiness (Wo Do Kuai Le). I also liked the ending theme of drama (Sticky Note Wish).

This is one of those dramas that you have to see – a must see! If you don’t believe me then check out mysoju.com and see that this drama is currently on the number one list of the all time most watched dramas on their site (and I would like to especially thank RandomFS for subbing the drama :D). And if its not enough, this particular drama is currently holding the crown for the drama with the highest rating in Taiwan, having a peak rating of 10.91 during the airing of the 20th episode. And this is the highest rating a drama had in Taiwan. Because of the high ratings Ethan Ruan had to swim NAKED!

So to watch the drama go to mysoju.com.
