"Swing" mini album listening post!



[lyrics translations]

Swing (嘶吼)

Hey, Mr! The time is here, no more waiting
Throw away the obstacles waking up in your dreams, don't oppress your existence
Maria! Stop daydreaming, time is slipping away quickly

Looking at the love that I can't get and still anticipating for it,
Why not just let go and say goodbye
Shall we dance, forget the loneliness, hold on both hands tightly
Shall we dance, the memories of pain, slowly drifting away
This song is my password to go through the customs, the rules are decided by you

Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! (Swing)
Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! (Swing)
Troubles are nothing, forget them in one second
Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! Hey!

Uno Dos Tres
Tacit understanding comes subconciously, like I understand you just by your breathing
So Relax, Be Cool, be with me, I am only dazzled by you
Life is sometimes crazy, come complain, don't mind it, with me around the performance is perfect.
So Relax, Be Cool, be with me, Happiness will be attracted like magic
Open your eyes, there will be new experiences everyday, be true to yourself

Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! (Swing)
Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! (Swing)
Troubles are nothing, forget them in one second
Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! Hey!

Sometimes we will lost ourselves while moving forward, heart seems to fall into the deep ocean bottom
Escape with rhythm, Dance withe me tonight
Swing My Babe, Tonight!

Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! (Swing)
Follow the happy rhythms, scream loudly Swing Never Never Give Up! (Swing)
Happiness let me loudly declare for this second, being noticed by the world
Follow the happy rhythms, release your universe Swing Never Never Give Up! Hey!

Hey~ Yeah~ (Swing) Hey Yeah~ Swing Never Never Give Up!
Hey~ Yeah~ (Swing) Hey Yeah~ Swing Never Never Give Up! Swing!


飞翔 (Fly High)

I fantasized about changing the world when I was a kid
After I grew up, I discovered that heroes only appear in movies
Mum told me to realize all my dreams
After I grew up, all the troubles appeared

What's wrong with me, I have started to hesitate
Don't sigh, failures are nothing
Don't be silly, dreams are just starting to come true
Don't doubt, it's you

Move forward with big strides, declare to the world bravely
There is no limit to youth, live afresh with every second
Light up your hopes, fly Oh~ Oh Oh Oh Oh
Fly, light up the heaven of your dreams
Fly, Oh~ Oh Oh Oh Oh
Fly, Follow the direction that your heart points to

Sometimes I will hide alone in the room
Wasting time, spending the the unhappy day away
I look outside the window at the rain
The sky will not change because of your mood

What's wrong with me, I have started to hesitate
Don't sigh, these little injuries are nothing
Don't be silly, stop hesitating
Don't doubt, it's you

Move forward with big strides, declare to the world bravely
There is no limit to youth, live afresh with every second
Light up your hopes, fly Oh~ Oh Oh Oh Oh
Fly, light up the heaven of your dreams
Fly, Oh~ Oh Oh Oh Oh
Fly, Follow the direction that your heart points to

Forget those depressing looks
Choose to become stronger
There is a light that takes away all my doubts

I want to move forward in big strides, declare to the world bravely
There is no limit to youth, live afresh with every second

Move forward with big strides, declare to the world bravely
There is no limit to youth, live afresh with every second
Light up your hopes, fly Oh~ Oh Oh Oh Oh
Fly, light up the heaven of your dreams
Fly, Oh~ Oh Oh Oh Oh
Fly, Follow the direction that your heart points to

Oh Oh Oh ~ Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Shout out your declaration loudly
Oh Oh Oh ~ Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh My youth has no limit


无所谓 (My Love For You)

I don't understand, I didn't think too much
if loving you is right or wrong
Please don't listen to others
Cause You're My Everything, yeah

I want so much to fly with you to the shooting stars
Take a picture of your beautiful expression
Holding my hand Baby I Know Oh

It doesn't matter, It doesn't matter
Everything you want, Baby, I can give it to you
Dry your tears, no more dark nights
Accompanying by your side Everyday
It doesn't matter, It doesn't matter
Who can I love other than you
Only wish that you will see it one day, My love for you
My love, it cannot be taken back

Giving my true love, this is not a game
The love I want, I can't be without you
Cause I Want You Girl, And I Need Your Love
Listen to me

It doesn't matter, It doesn't matter
Everything you want, Baby, I can give it to you
Dry your tears, no more dark nights
Accompanying by your side Everyday
It doesn't matter, It doesn't matter
Who can I love other than you
Only wish that you will see it one day, My love for you
My love, it cannot be taken back

Maybe one day you will tell me
that you will be my side forever
Girl I still don't understand
I have only one thing in my heart, I love you My Baby
I really want to be with you Yeah~


It doesn't matter, It doesn't matter
Everything you want, Baby, I can give it to you
Dry your tears, no more dark nights
Accompanying by your side Everyday
It doesn't matter, It doesn't matter
Who can I love other than you
Only wish that you will see it one day, My love for you
My love, it cannot be taken back

Pain! Adding to Pain, Pain! Love is Pain!

It's like the flu wants you to topple over
Strongly not allowing you to struggle

Addiction (入迷)

I still kept your photos Constantly holding in my hands
The reversal in my memory You and I were only friends
But it always feels like we are closer than friends
Like the rhythm in my heart Girl please stay by my side

How she favours me
Makes me misunderstand a little
She sings this song so easily
You are my only one

I'm losing control of my body
Give me the best love beats
Shaking you body to move along with me

Dreaming of you and me
Not wanting to let go of beauty
I've been attracted long ago
Dreaming of you and me
Not letting go of any second of beauty
I've been attracted long ago

1! 2! 3!
Woo Baby where should we head to
Woo Baby I can do it all
I'm even losing control of my breathe
What are you thinking
Hurry tell me Do you want me
Hurry tell me you too love me
I'm Ready, When You Want Tell me on stage
Baby What You Want follow me

How she favours me
Makes me misunderstand a little
She sings this song so easily
You are my only one

I'm losing control of my body
Give me the best love beats
Shaking you body to move along with me

Dreaming of you and me
Not wanting to let go of beauty
I've been attracted long ago
Dreaming of you and me
Not letting go of any second of beauty
I've been attracted long ago

Dreaming of you and me
Not wanting to let go of beauty
I've been attracted long ago (I've been attracted to you)
Dreaming of you and me
Not letting go of any second of beauty
I've been deeply attracted long ago
I really love you Oh~ Love you (Addicted)
Love you Oh~ Love you (Addicted)
My Love ~ Where are you hurry appear Oh

Dreaming of you and me
Not letting go of any second of beauty
I've been deeply attracted long ago


After A Minute (一分后)

Time is revolving under our memories' breath
When (it) gradually can't feel you
Laughter and tears will all become a silent movie

Only left with the ticking of the clock to accompany my despair
Every second, my heart is struggling
Don't laugh at my silliness It's fate that isn't letting me speak

When the sun's up I'm not able to keep you
Counting down gentleness Condolence this second
Close your eyes and open it again Everything is different

Stranger's face becomes me

Who's yelling pain Despite the tears that keep flowing
Detaching the feelings I only need one minute
After a minute maybe we will split
Don't forget to treasure mutual love across the skies

Forever rushing to find something
When you are used to being alone yet it feels like you are being controlled
In the end who to beg me not to turn back
I know time will let go

When the sun's up I'm not able to keep you
Counting down gentleness Condolence this second
Close your eyes and open it again Everything is different
Face of happiness isn't me hugging you

The sun never misses the beauty of the rainbow
I can do it (I surely can)
After the storm comes the Sun (The sun will always come after the storm)
Protecting you when you back away

Except you, there's no more excuses
Closing down heart's pain Wishing this minute
Close your eyes and open it again It's no longer pain
My heart is no longer pain
Your happiness comforts me

Wake me but don't break lonely Even if lonely)
Leave the past It only takes a minute (Counting down this minute)
A minute alter we are only left with me
Embracing the dream once made, I smiled and said

Does Kim Gura really have to participate in every single talk show that involves sensitive subjects/supposedly honesty from the participants? Idek want to know his opinion. -,- Good opportunity for SSK though, and I'm looking forward to his arguments even though I have a feeling like I wouldn't necessarily agree with them.

Girl Group FIESTAR has revealed on their official Facebook page today that Cheska would be leaving the group. Furthermore, Jei, Linzy, Hyemi, Yezi, and Cao Lu will continue on as a five member group with plans to release an album at the end of April.

The group is managed by Collabodadi,which is a sub division of LOEN Artist.

Full message:

[click to read]“Hello, everyone. This is Collabodadi.

We would like to make an official announcement related to our label artist FIESTAR’s further plan and its member Cheska’s withdrawal from the team as below.

Currently, FIESTAR’s members, Jei, Linzy, Hyemi, Yezi, and CaoLu, are concentrating on their practice and shooting for upcoming album which is expected to be released at the end of April while continuing with their schedule. However, its member Cheska has decided to officially withdraw from FIESTAR after a long and profound conversation with the agency and, thus, FIESTAR will be reformed as a five-member-group from the next album.

Working as a member of group FIESTAR, Cheska has been pondering on what she really wants to pursue for her future music career and she has decided that this is the right time for her to attempt to change for her individual development. Therefore, she expressed voluntary withdrawal from the team and we accepted Cheska’s decision to leave FIESTAR after spending sufficient time discussing the matter with not only Cheska but also the other five members.

On March 29th, FIESTAR will arrange the fan meeting and will spend the last time with Cheska.

FIESTAR will continue their singing career in a wide variety of fields as a five-member-group without scouting an additional member.

We would like to ask for your ongoing support for FIESTAR and encouragement for Cheska’s difficult decision for her future after deliberate consideration.

Thank you.”

Now this is something: Duble Sidekick says Girl's Day's 'Something' was originally made for Hyorin



Park Janggeun from the producer unit Duble Sidekick revealed the behind story of Girl’s Day’s recent hit-song “Something” on Mnet’s variety show program. Surprisingly, “Something” was originally made for SISTAR’s Hyorin.

At the time, Duble Sidekick previewed the chorus part first to Hyorin, but Hyorin rejected it for being a little to mild and soft for her taste and for her solo album. Then, Duble Sidekick thought the song might actually fit better for Girl’s Day and produced it for them.

Since “Something” did become a popular song, Duble Sidekick humorously mentioned that, “We got scolded by Hyorin.”

Are you interested in what Hyorin’s version of “Something” might have sounded like or do you still root for Girl’s Day’s version of it?
