플라스틱 ~ 눈꽃

Plastic, “Snow Flower”

 

 

The weather is still incredibly chilly here in Korea… it snowed just yesterday! And with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, this song does not seem out of place at all. As many happy couples as there are, there are still just as many (if not more) sad and lonely people out there, consoling themselves in weather that matches their mood. I, on the other hand, will be at a Monotones concert come Valentine’s Day~

 

One quick note: The term 눈꽃 (nun ggeot) literally means “snow flower,” and I’ve seen it translated like that in some places. But it can also simply mean “snow,” so I’ve just kind of used context to choose whichever makes more sense in each instance.

 

 

한국어:

 

하얀 눈꽃들이 아름답게 피었네

한 폭의 그림 같은 황홀한 세상이

눈앞에 보이네

 

새하얀 꽃들이 바람에 흩날리네

청정 하늘에도 벚꽃이 피고

지던 저 언덕너머에도

 

눈꽃이 날리네, 눈꽃이 날리네

 

새하얗게 변해버린 짙은 그리움이

애잔하게 떠오르는 우리 둘의 지난 겨울을

더욱 그립게 하네

 

하얀 그리움이 눈꽃으로 피었네

사랑이 머물다간

서글픈 계절이 내 앞에 서있네

 

눈꽃이 날리네, 꽃잎이 휘 날리네

기억 저 편에도

아득히 멀어져간 그 이별의 길목에도

 

새하얗게 변해버린 짙은 그리움이

애잔하게 떠오르는 우리 둘의 지난 겨울을

더욱 그립게 하네

 

눈꽃이 날리면

아무도 없는 쓸쓸한 겨울

눈 덮인 하얀 세상에 홀로

이렇게 너를 그리네

 

새하얗게 변해버린 짙은 그리움이

애잔하게 떠오르는 우리 둘의 지난 겨울을

더욱 그립게 하네

 

 

English:

 

White snow flowers blossom beautifully

The world looks like a blissful painting

in front of my very eyes

 

Snow white flowers are scattered by the wind

Cherry flowers blossom in the clear sky

and even fall beyond that far hill

 

Snow flies, snow flies

 

My deep longing is becoming white

I keep sorrowfully thinking back to our last winter

and my longing makes me miss it even more

 

White longing blossoms into a snow flower

Love lingers, then leaves

The four seasons are standing in front of me

 

Snow falls, flower petals flutter about

They fall on my memories

and on that faint and distant corner of our breakup

When snow falls,

winter is lonely with nobody around

I’m alone in this white, snow-covered world

I miss you so much

 

My deep longing is becoming white

I keep sorrowfully thinking back to our last winter

and my longing makes me miss it even more
