Who’s ready for 2AM’s Comeback?? + Happy 5th Anniversary!

Yay! I can’t contain my excitement!

2AM is finally making a comeback next month!!!!

I have been waiting for this come back since their I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me. Although the boys were still active through individual promotions, variety shows and dramas, nothing beats them making music together.

2AM is actually one of those groups I really like. Yes they are a boyband, they can dance (well maybe not as good as other boy idol groups) but boy can they sing! I love the fact that they are an idol group but at the same time the songs they release are mostly ballads. It’s a ballad but it would still have high ranks on the chart.

The new album is called One Spring Day. From the look of the teaser, it could be a sad song. A set filled with pianos outgrown by roots and trees that are in full bloom — hmm it could mean recalling a love lost in the past? Ok so I’m just guessing. But I really can’t wait for this new album!

I’ve never been disappointed with their songs so my expectations are a bit high. I hope this would not be the first one! Can’t wait for March 5!

Oh and as a bonus… 2AM has been in the industry for 5 years already. This video is a video of that 5 year journey.

Oh how they’ve grown and matured since 2008. I hope they won’t stop bringing beautiful ballads. Congratulations!!!! Please don’t break up. Sorry for that statement but since DBSK broke up on their 5th year, I am almost always scared the idol groups I like will break up.. Please don’t!

2AM fighting!!!

One Day – 2AM + 2PM (PV)

I haven’t paid too much attention to Jpop recently. But this is essentially a cross between Jpop and Kpop so I decided to post it.

It’s the PV for One Day, a track by 2AM and 2PM.

I’m sure their fans would have known of this already. I am not much of a 2PM fan (except for Nichkhun). I liked them before, when Jay Park was there, but for me after Again and Again and I Hate You, I really didn’t quite get their songs. But I still like Nichkhun! It’s a different story for 2AM. I liked them since I heard What To Do and Confession of a Friend and I’ve never stopped liking them!

This song is a Japanese single. I think this song is actually a good one for the Japanese market. It’s the kind of song most Japanese boy band releases. Do I like it? Hmm.. it’s ok I think, but not a favorite of mine, but pleasant to the ear. I don’t hate it, just not very catchy for me. (I think this is the big difference for me with Jpop and Kpop)

The video is quite simple, just them dressed in suits and doing the usual dance. Ok Taecyeon! I don’t know what’s with me but I like the way you look in this video! Kya.. and not to mention Jinwoon (sorry I can’t helped but be biased). And yay! we got to see 2AM dance again. Speaking of dancing, their moves remind me of Arashi and their dance steps from the not so old days. If I hadn’t know better, I would think they were a Japanese boy band instead of a Korean one. Suddenly I miss my Arashi crazy days! Matsumoto Jun, Sakurai Sho! (at this point I am surpressing my Arashi fandom because this post is about 2AM and 2PM).

Final Verdict:I think the song is for the Japanese market, not the usual 2AM/2PM song, but good for Jpop. And the dancing reminds me of my Japanese boyband fandom! Oh how I miss Arashi!

I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me – 2AM (with lyrics)

I’m liking this song a lot recently. I always thought I did not like ballads but I don’t know what it is about 2AM songs that make me really feel good even when it’s a sad song.

Before putting up the video of 2AM‘s I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me  너도 나처럼, I’m putting the prequel to understand the story of the video:

Prequel

 

Music Video

 

I know they have released this video for some time already and they have in fact won an award on Music Bank, but I’ve been lagging on posting something. And I think now is the perfect time to post it. There is no doubt that 2AMs voices are still powerful as ever. I have to say though that Jinwoon’s voice has greatly improves (and I don’t mean in a biased manner). I think now he sings better compared to Confession of a Friend. I like how Jokwon’s high pitched voice has become stronger, not I have to say the chorus sounds stronger than before.  The songs on this album are noteworthy and very very nice.. it’s a good album.. so good that I want to buy the physical album!

For the music video, we usually get teasers for a music video, but for this I love that they did a prequel as well as interviewed women’s opinions of breaking up. I know I sound like a fan girl but I love how the maknae stars in the video! Aigoo, the maknae has grown a lot! The video was sad but it’s kinda creepy to watch Jinwoon moving, hugging the lifeless body! But its a Kpop video so they can do pretty much anything to get the message to the viewers.

I love this song so much, that I’m putting the lyrics! kk I just want to sing this song a lot..

 I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me (English Translation) 

As i think only of you all day
A single stream of tear flows on its own

Step by step, i see you
So even as i work, tears flow without me knowing

Even when i sing
Even when i walk the streets
I’m filled with thoughts of you

I wonder if you hurt like me
I wonder if you cry like me
I wonder if you live all day in memories like me

There are many things to laugh about forcibly
Like a wind-up doll, like it’s my job, i laugh

Even when i watch tv
Even when i meet my friends
I’m filled with thoughts of you

I wonder if you hurt like me
I wonder if you cry like me
I wonder if you live all day in memories like me

Because i smile every day
Because i show my smiles,
They think i am happy
But how can i smile, how can i smile without you
I smile and i smile but tears flow again

I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me 너도 나처럼 – Hangeul 

하루종일 니 생각만 하다가
한 가닥 눈물이 멋대로 주르륵 흐른다
걸음걸음 니 모습이 밟혀서

일을 하다가도 나도 모르게 또 흐른다

(우후후후후) 노래를 불러도

(우후후후후) 거리를 걸어도
(우후후후후) 온통 니 생각 뿐인데

너도 나처럼 이렇게 아픈지

너도 나처럼 눈물 나는지
너도 하루종일 이렇게 추억에 사는지 꼭 나처럼

억지라도 웃을 일 참 많은데

태엽 인형처럼 주어진 일처럼 웃는다

(우후후후후) TV를 보아도

(우후후후후) 친구를 만나도
(우후후후후) 온통 니 생각 뿐인데

너도 나처럼 이렇게 아픈지
너도 나처럼 눈물 나는지
너도 하루종일 이렇게 추억에 사는지 꼭 나처럼
매일을 웃으니까
웃는 모습만 보여주니까 내가 행복한 줄만 아나 봐

어떻게 웃어 내가 어떻게 웃어 니가 없는데
웃어도 웃어도 눈물이 또 흘러

너도 나처럼 이렇게 아픈지
너도 나처럼 눈물 나는지
너도 하루종일 이렇게 추억에 사는지 꼭 나처럼
