For my final song selection, I’m going to introduce a song from my favorite South Korean Asian drama Because This Is My First Life.
The song is “갈 수가 없어 (Can’t go)” by Ben. It’s a song about a woman who cannot let go of her feelings for a man. As time progresses, her feelings for him still lingers within her and so, she is unable to move on. Yet, she still hopes for the day that she can start anew.
Ben’s “갈 수가 없어 (Can’t go)”
오늘처럼 하루를 참아도
자꾸 되돌아오는 매일을 살고
바보같은 일을 반복하고
혼자 또 한 켠에 서서
정말 혹시나 내일은 다를까봐
한 걸음도 갈 수가 없어
Even if I endure through a day like today
Each day keeps repeating
Foolish things keep repeating
So I’m standing in a corner by myself
Thinking maybe tomorrow will be different
I can’t take a single step
–Ben’s “갈 수가 없어 (Can’t go)”
I hope you enjoyed the fourteen days of love songs and a Happy Valentine’s Day!
