Banmal Song

I feel that I’m starting to like the YongSeo couple (CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa and SNSD’s Seohyun). I guess they look good after all,  especially on their videos singing the Banmal Song. This song BTW was composed by Yong Hwa to whom was inspired by Seohyun  during their pair up as a virtually wed couple on MBC’s show, We Got Married way back 2009.

The Banmal Song (For the First Time Lovers in English) is about first-time lovers wanting to get closer. It expressed Yong Hwa’s wish for her to speak in “banmal” (which means “informal language” in English) with him and her response to his wish. (no wonder they’re called the “Sweet Potato” couple.. they’re really sweet 🙂 )

Check out their videos:

This was the MV that they have taped during the We Got Married Show

The Banmal Song live during their K-Pop All Star Live in Niigata performance last September 11, 2011

 

I’m loving the song so much that I wanted to memorize it.

So, here’s the lyrics of the song: 😀

TRANSLATION

The day when I first saw you

Your bright smile full of shyness
we’ll get closer after today
Every day, I have heart-fluttering expectations

What to say to you
How to get you to laugh
I fear it’ll get awkward when I try to hold your hand
All I can do is smile shyly

Hopefully we can speak banmal to each other
Even though it’s still awkward and unfamiliar
Instead of saying ‘thank you’
Talk to me in a friendlier way

Hopefully we can speak banmal to each other
You walk towards me slowly, step by step
Now look at my two eyes and tell me
I love you

The day when I held your hand
I felt my heart stop beating
I don’t even remember what I said
All I feel is a flutter in my stomach

Hopefully we can speak banmal to each other
Even though it’s still awkward and unfamiliar
Instead of saying ‘thank you’
Talk to me in a friendlier way

Hopefully we can speak banmal to each other
You walk towards me slowly, step by step
Now look at my two eyes and tell me
I love you

Hopefully we can fall in love with each other
I’ll never let go of your two hands from my grasp
The light of your eyes, gazing at me
I hope there will only be joyful smiles

We can probably fall in love with each other
We can lean on one another and take care of each other
Looking into your eyes, my two eyes
They’re talking to you
I love you

I was not satisfied with just the lyrics, and so I went on searching for a copy of the song. 😀 Unfortunately, the only one available was Yong Hwa’s version. It was still pretty good though, but I hope they would release a duet version of it. 🙂
