잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

폰부스 ~ 혜화

Phonebooth, “Hyehwa”

 

 

The brooding mood of the video and the sentimental lyrics of “Hyehwa” seem unsuited for each other, until the tones switch and the video becomes sentimental while the lyrics express something missing between lovers (although the “deep darkness” in the third line and the flowers being behind a fence in the second verse hint at something amiss). Regardless, the song is a touching recounting of a special love throughout.

The video is taken from the motion picture Re-encounter, Korean title 혜화, 동. The movie and song share the name, which is a neighborhood in Seoul mostly known for its nightlife and indie theaters, as well as its proximity to Sungkyungwan University and SNU Hospital.

 

 

한국어:

 

아름다운 그녀의 손을 잡고

나는 길을 나섰지

거리는 깊은 어둠이 내려도

아직 눈이 부셨지

우리는 손을 놓지 않은 채 길을 걸었지

하늘 위에 별보다

많은 불빛을 보며 이야기 했지

서로를 바라보며

길을 잃은 줄도 모르고

 

그녀에게 꽃을 주고 싶어서

주위를 둘러보았지

하지만 이곳에 모든 꽃들은

울타리가 있었지

어쩔 줄 모르고 돌아볼 때

그녀는 나에게

꽃잎보다 붉은

입술을 주었네

그녀는 나에게

꺾이지 않는

키스를 내게 건네주네

키스를 내게 건네주네

 

반짝이는 십자가 바라보며

마치 별과 같다고

영원을 기도하려 했지만

빈손이었지

주머니를 뒤져도

엉킨 실밥 몇 개만! 남아 있었지

그녀가 바라보며

너와 함께 걸어온 길에는

우리가 가질 수

있는 건 없다고

그렇게 말하고 나를 안았네

나를 안아주네

아무것도 난 필요 없었네

아무것도 난 필요 없었네

 

 

English:

 

I held hands with a beautiful girl

and we walked along the street

Even though a deep darkness descended,

her eyes were still bright

Without letting go of each other’s hands,

we walked along the street

With more light than the stars in the sky,

I told you a story

As we stared at each other,

we didn’t even know we would lose the way

 

I wanted to give her flowers, so

I looked around at my surroundings

but all the flowers there

were behind a fence

I didn’t know what to do

[When I turned back around, she

gave me lips

redder than petals]

[That girl

presented me with

a never-ending kiss]

Presented me with a kiss

 

As I gazed at a shining cross,

I said it was like a star

I had hoped to spend forever with you, but

I had nothing to offer

Even if I turned my pockets inside out,

there were only countless tangled threads

As she gazed at me,

[she told me,

“There’s nothing we can hold on to

on this road we came on.”]

She said that and hugged me

She gave me a hug

I didn’t need anything

I didn’t need anything
