Sweet Dream – MFBTY (MV)

So it’s a Saturday and I have nothing to do today. And I was a bit bored, so I decided to post some again.

Though I haven’t posted anything, I am still a bit updated with Korean music. But with the recent rise in the number of Kpop groups, I don’t know who is who! Seriously… they are just so many of them now… and their songs are just the same.

But recently I find myself listening to a lot more than just Kpop. I’ve been listening to a lot more than just Kpop, but I think I really enjoy the K-indie music as well as K-hiphop. And this song has been on my playlist. It’s from MFBTY (My Fans Better Than Yours), a project group of Tiger JK, Yoon Mirae (Tasha/T) and Bizzy. It’s called Sweet Dream.

The Video

I actually heard the song before I saw the video. So when I saw the video I was like.. What the heck happened! Hahaha. I have actually been a fan of Drunken Tiger and Yoon Mirae for quite sometime now. And this is the first time I’ve seen them do this kind of stuff in their videos. It was like seeing their alter egos in the video. Did I enjoy it? Ya.. in a twisted kind of way. Maybe I enjoyed it because it was fun to watch them here. Because it’s very different from their image. It shows that they aren’t afraid how they looked like or if it does something to their current image!

The video is full of surreal things. You really don’t expect that to happen in reality.  Maybe they were trying to say a lot of possible things can happen in our dreams – which I bet a lot of us had experienced one time or another. And then when we wake up we know it was just a dream. But I have to say, the robot Tiger dream was scary!

The Song

I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (notice the number of exclamation points!) When I heard this song the first time I just played Melon 100 chart. I honestly thought it wasn’t a Korean artist who sang it. But when I saw the album cover had Yoon Mirae I couldn’t believe it.. then I hear Tiger JK rap. I am so amazed by this song. Amazed because the beat was electronic-club with a mix of hip hop. It was like listening to a Black Eyed Peas song only in a different language!

I honestly enjoy Korean electronica music. Though this genre is not so popular yet and is (to me) still of an Indie status. But I love this kind of music and it’s certainly something different from Kpop. I am so happy that MFBTY produced this song because it lets people know that there is more than just Kpop in the Korean music industry.

I do hope that they will be making more of this sound even though they are just a project group. Korea needs more electronica!

Final Verdict: You’d never believe it was from a Korean artist until you hear the rap. If you like electronic/hip-hop you’d love this song. I can’t wait to hear more of MFBTY songs!

Turned Off the TV – Leessang (MV and lyrics)

I don’t know why I am listening to this song again because I know it was released last year. But I can’t seem to stop myself from listening.

It’s Turned Off the TV (TV를 껐네) of Leesang featuring Tasha, Kwon Jungyeol of 10CM.

The Song

This song was my favorite from last year’s Leesang album AsuRa BalBalTa. I absolutely loved the light beat of the song paired with the rhythmic rap beats of Gary and Gil. Tasha (Yoon Mirae) rapping in this song is icing on the cake! I think she is one of the best female Korean rappers. Kwon Jungyeol’s voice makes it more soothing to listen to. This is my second favorite Leesang song — the first is still The Girl Who Can’t Break Up, The Guy Who Can’t Leave (yes, that’s the video with Lee Hyori in it).

Although, I am very fond of listening to Kpop, there is always a spot for Leesang. I’ve liked them since I’ve discovered Ballerino back in 2008. Aside from Clazziquia Project, they were second on my list. Though I did not really understand their music but I loved the beats of the their songs. I just don’t really post too much about them on my blog. I would recommend them if you fancy listening to another artist not of the Kpop genre.

The Video

Was fun to look at! Hahaha.. Actually I am a sucker for animations like this and I really don’t care if it relates to the song of not. I think it was beautifully made. You might think it to be simple but actually it’s a painstaking task to do each of those frames done in the video. It has to be photographed then edited. And each frame has a particular detail so it is quite difficult.

I love this song and though it’s been a year from it’s release I’m posting the lyrics still.

Turned Off the TV – Translation

*I love you so much so I turned off the TV
Your red lips
I love you so much so I closed the curtains
Your red lips
I love you so much so I turned off the TV
Your red lips
I love you so much so I closed the curtains
Your red lips

In my eyes, your body has the most beautiful lines than any other lines
Your dark hair, I melt in its scent
Sometimes I imagine things and I become greedy
When I watch TV, when I walk, I want you all the time
I can’t suppress it, how can I just hold your hands?
Don’t sound so hard on me, you’re the one who made me hard
I love you so much, I wannna give you my everything and have your everything
I want to hug you closer, I wanna wet my body and pat your bottom

I wanna show you all night
You will cry when you see a different me from yesterday
I wanna show you all night
You’re so lovely, you always make my heart flutter baby

*Repeat

Why did you just close the curtains when it’s so hot?
Why did you just turn off the tv?
Why are you looking at me like that, setting the mood?
I’m tired, I’m tired, let’s just sleep
I wanna dream in your arms all night
Stop whining, tonight is not the only night
Not tonight baby, come on my angel, let’s just sleep
Don’t get mad and hold my hand
Why are you turning your back against me like a child?
Oh come on, you’re so silly
I’ll think about it, go turn off the lights

I can’t sleep like this, you’re so beautiful
I can’t just let tonight go like this
Don’t say no tonight, no no no

*Repeat

You make my heart flutter

Turned Off the TV – Hangeul

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술

내 눈엔 그 어떤 선보다 아름다운 너의 몸매
검은 머리 너만의 향기에 나는 녹네
때론 몰래 응큼한 상상을 해 그러다 욕심이 솟네
티비를 보다가도 거리를 걷다가도
시도때도 없이 난 너를 원해 못참아 어떻게 손만 잡아
딱딱하게 말하지마 니가 날 딱딱하게 만들었잖아
널 너무 사랑해 내 모든 걸 다 주고
니 모든 걸 다 갖고 싶어
더 가까이 널 안고싶어
내 몸을 적시고 엉덩이 토닥토닥하고 싶어
이 밤이 새도록 보여주고 싶어
어제와 또 다른 내 모습에 눈물까지 흘릴거야

이 밤이 새도록 보여주고 싶어
넌 너무 사랑스러워 언제나 나를 설레게 만들어

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술

더운데 갑자기 커텐을 왜 쳐
잘 보고있는 티비는 또 왜 꺼?
그런 눈으로 왜 또 분위기 잡아
피곤해 피곤해 그냥 나 잘래
니 품에서 꿈꾸고 싶어 밤새
그만 좀 보채
오늘만 날이 아니잖아 좀 참아
착하지 내 남자 그냥 코 자자
삐지지 말고 내 손을 잡아
어린 애처럼 왜 또 등을 돌려
못말려 너란 남자 정말 웃겨
생각해 볼께 어서 가서 불꺼

이대론 잠 못 자요 넌 너무 아름다워
난 오늘 이 밤을 보내기엔 아쉬워요
오늘은 안된다고 말아요
그만 그만 그만

널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 티비를 껐어
새빨간 니 입술
널 너무나 사랑해서 난 커텐을 쳤어
새빨간 니 입술
나를 설레게 만들어
