Waiting (기다리다) – Panic (패닉)

I am absolutely enjoying old Kpop songs these days. I don’t know but I get excited when I hear them sing an old song and I immediately jumped to looking for the original singer of the song.

I have been listening to this song over and over for the past few days (its this and David Choi’s By My Side). I know it has been sung over and over again by several artists and it has been featured in Kdramas, the latest of which was in Dream High. But I guess this song will not fade (that’s why I love old songs :))

The song is called Waiting (기다리다) by Panic (패닉). I couldn’t find any music video so I settled for a this….

and  a live version of Lee Jeok (이적) singing (by the way he was part of Panic but he’s a solo artist now..

This song was originally releases in 1995 as part of Panic’s first album. I absolutely love the strumming of the guitar in this song. There is something about acoustic music that really draws me. Must be my liking for rock music. And the song’s melody is truly saying the feeling of the lyrics of the song, so that’s another plus in my book. I just love it and I have been playing this again and again. Here’s the lyrics to help you sing along…

Waiting (English Translation)

While I was waiting for you,
I’ve been thinking that you’re so painful after you left me.
So you’re crying on the way back to me.
When I look at you, I hope.
On a clear day you will come back to me just like when you left me.

Can’t I see you again?
I can’t see me in your eyes
Comfortable waves and remains of the smile make me cry.
You’d come back to me
Don’t hesitate to come to my arms if your heart called me
I’ll hug you like I did before.

When I look at you, I hope.
On a clear day you will come back to me just like when you left me.

Can’t I see you again?
I can’t see me in your eyes
Comfortable waves and remains of the smile make me cry.
You’d come back to me
Don’t hesitate to come to my arms if your heart called me
I’ll hug you like I did before.

Waiting 기다리다 (Hangeul)

널 기다리다 혼자 생각했어
떠나간 넌 지금 너무 아파
다시 내게로 돌아올 길 위에 울고 있다고
널 바라보다 문득 생각했어
어느날 하늘이 밝아지면
마치 떠났던 날처럼 가만히 너는 내게 오겠지
내 앞에 있는 너

* 네가 다시 나를 볼 순 없을까
너의 두 눈 속에 나는 없고
익숙해진 손짓과 앙금같은 미소만
희미하게 남아서 나를 울게 하지만
너는 다시 내게 돌아올거야
너의 맘이 다시 날 부르면
주저말고 돌아와 네 눈앞의 내 안으로
예전처럼 널 안아줄테니

널 바라보다 문득 생각했어
어느날 하늘이 밝아지면
마치 떠났던 날처럼 가만히 너는 내게 오겠지
내 앞에 있는 너

* 네가 다시 나를 볼 순 없을까
너의 두 눈 속에 나는 없고
익숙해진 손짓과 앙금같은 미소만
희미하게 남아서 나를 울게 하지만
너는 다시 내게 돌아올거야
너의 맘이 다시 날 부르면
주저말고 돌아와 네 눈앞의 내 안으로
예전처럼 널 안아줄테니

I know a lot of Kdrama fans recognized this song being sung by Pilsuk’s (IU) character from Dream High. This was the song she was singing in the hospital. But I liked this song when I saw Kim Hyun Joong singing it in Boys Over Flowers. This was the song he sang when he was in Macau (before the acoustic version of Because I’m a Fool). *wink *wink ^_^

So who sang it better?

Kim Hyun Joong’s version (with Because I’m a Fool)

IU’s version

Kyuhyun and Jungmo (Trax) at Immortal Song 2

I was talking to my friends the other night. We were watching some videos (particulary Suju’s Why I Like You performance — and it was played again and again 🙂 –). Suddenly another friend asked me how about the rock scene in Kpop? Do they have any?

My friends know I am an avid rock fan — been a rock fan since I was in grade school. So they were kind of curious if the kind of rock songs that I love also existed in the Kpop world. My answer to them was this.. yes there are bands but their bands are all flower boys. Most of the kind of rock songs I like are indie groups. Truth be told, the kind of rock songs I like are the loud ones, like the ones you will hear from Jpop rock groups.

The closest I can get to my kind of rock music is Trax. So when I saw this video I was happy that some people do like rock in Korea.

This is the video of Kyuhyun‘s performance on Immortal Song 2 with Jungmo from Trax as his special guest. He singing a song called Masquerade.

It was stunning to hear and see this performance. Jungmo is a real good guitar player! Really REALLY good (not to mention good looking… see flower boys!).  And I didn’t know Kyuhyun’s voice would be good for a rock song, but I think he nailed this performance. I think it has to do something with the shout. If I didn’t know him, I think I could never tell that he is part of a boyband. The make up though — I really don’t understand why they correlate rock with eyeliners. If it was a goth / emo  rock band, yes. But have you ever seen Oasis wear eyeliners.. nuh-uh! And rock bands don’t dress that way, they dress comfortably. Maybe it’s their concept of being in a rock band.

But I was glad with this performance especially because its a show where most of the contestants are or were from idol groups (except Huh Gak but  I’m still rooting for him! oops.. and Kyuhyun too!) It was something refreshing from the usual cutesy kind of music.
