Falling Slowly Versions

I have written sometime last year on this blog that I liked a song called Falling Slowly from the movie Once. Inspired by this and because I just saw a clip of Yong Hwa (CN Blue) and Seo Hyun (SNSD) perform it on We Got Married,  I decided to feature the different covers of this song done by Kpop idols…

Yes, this song has been sung a lot of times and I think it’s very popular in Korea.. But though a lot of K-artists have been doing their version of the song, I’m still not tired of hearing it! I get all giddy when I hear the first few chords of the song.

So who do you think did the best cover??

Yong Hwa and Seo Hyun (Sweet Potato Couple)

Jo Kwon and Ga In (they sing during the 1:21 mark)

Jinwoon  and Jo Kwon

Kim Hyun Joong (singing to Hwang Bo.. aw I miss this We Got Married Couple – Lettuce Couple!)

Sungmin and Sunny

And just a plus.. he is not a Korean idol but this kid is korean and he can play the guitar!!! He is Sungha Jung..  check out his youtube page for more of his videos…

So which one do you like?

Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

I’ve been addicted to We Got Married for sometime now (though I’m not done watching the 41 episodes that’s been posted on mysoju — I’m still on the 31st episode). One of my favorite couples is of course the “lettuce” couple (a.k.a joongbo couple) — all because of Kim Hyun Joong — and I have to admit its was because of him that I watched this show.

In one of the many episodes,  particularly the 26th episode, Hyun Joong serenaded Hwang Bo because it was her birthday. The song he sang sounded very familiar, but I can’t seem to place where I heard the song. So I googled it and it is in fact, to me a very familiar song… because it won an Academy Award last 2006 as the Best Song. The song that I am talking about is Falling Slowly, which was the original music for a movie called Once. I love the lyrics and the melody of the song and the fact that it won an Oscars!


The song I’m posting isn’t anything Asian but I loved this song eversince I heard it some 2 years ago. It was my cousin who introduced me to the song. I almost forgot about it, until the time I heard Hyun Joong sing it. And now I have to stop my blabber and share the song with you :D.

I’m posting a videoclip I got from the FoxSearchlight channel on youtube. It has clips of the movie. I’m also including a link for the audio only incase you would like to listen…

Audio Version

Falling Slowly

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You’ve made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along

Nunmuldo Mianhaeso – Hwang Bo

One of the Asian shows that we are addicted to is We Got Married. A favorite couple of mine is Hwang Bo and Hyun Joong (innocente posted their 100th day pics for this). I was searching for songs by Hwang Bo both from her Chakra days as well as during her solo career. From all of her songs, the one I’m posting now is probably my favorite. It’s called Nunmuldo Mianhaeso (Sorry for Tears / I’m Sorry for the Tears ). This song is a little bit old (2007) and is from her Lady in Black Album. I’m posting both the live version as well as the MV. Love this song!

Nunmuldo Mianhaeso (Translation)

All day long I see you
I am trivial but whole hearted, and not quiet
It is all strange…

That piece of thread that tied us together has come loose
I pack all of my things and go on this course again
It might be like that…

I am happy living in this hell
I scrape out a star from my heart
I give the memories thankfully
I’m sorry for the tears…

The world sees this good truth
The damage you see as you search my eyes
It is also like this of all things…

I will be brought to the sad heaven
You live well and intend to live on this path
I see you in a place of uncontrollable happiness
I hate and I cry

I will be the one person to see it.. and like me, it will live to see it
Only the anxiety is born, but… it is right…
Until the end of that woman
My mind is different and it sees… what is right…

I am happy living in this hell
I scrape out a star from my heart
I give the memories thankfully
I might not hate anymore… and it will be right..
