박정현 ~ 연애중

Lena Park, “Courting”

 

I’m not always a fan of Lena Park; sometimes she has too much of the JYP-half-sound-half-breath style that just doesn’t do it for me. But this song abandons a lot of that and I’m always willing to give artists multiple chances. Lena Park still isn’t my favorite singer or anything, but I definitely enjoyed this song. I’ve found other translations around, but I had already translated it by the time I found them and I didn’t want my work to go to waste.

 

 

한국어:

 

긴 연애였어

나름 대로 우린 예뻤어

웃는 일도 우는 일도

남들처럼 뜨거웠던

 

우리는 지금 습관으로 손을 잡고

숙제처럼 입을 맞춰

우리에겐 더는 없는 낭만이란 말

 

자 어떡할까

요즘 우리 둘 모습 보면

헤어지는 게 맞는데

왜 자꾸만 망설일까 슬픈 얼굴로

의미 없는 연애중

 

넌 하루 종일 연락도 없지

나도 딱히 할 말 없지

잘 자라는 문자 하나씩

이게 바로 정인 걸까

 

편하긴 해 이별이란

힘든 순서 없이

우린 자유롭게 하룰 보내

싱글 같은 우리 둘

 

자 어떡할까

요즘 우리 둘 모습 보면

헤어지는 게 맞는데

왜 자꾸만 망설일까 슬픈 얼굴로

의미 없는 연애 중

 

차라리 네가 싫어 진다면 좋겠어

날 미워해줘도 괜찮고 말이야

어떡해야 할까 아직까지도 우린

서로에게 참 좋은 사람

 

우리 헤어질까

이젠 우리 둘 모습 보면

헤어지는 게 맞는데

그럴 때 마다

행복했던 날이 아쉬운지

오늘도 그냥 우린

 

 

English:

 

We’ve been together for quite some time

We were beautiful in our own way

The things we laughed and cried about

We were hot like other couples

 

Now we hold hands out of habit

We kiss like it’s homework

There’s no romance to us anymore

 

So, what should we do?

Looking at us recently,

breaking up seems right, but

why do we keep hesitating, with sad faces?

Our relationship is meaningless

 

You don’t contact me all day

and I don’t exactly have anything to say, either

We send each other a goodnight text

Is this the extent of our affection?

 

It is comfortable, the idea of breaking up

Without any bothersome formalities

we spend our days freely

like the two of us are single

 

So, what should we do?

Looking at us recently,

breaking up seems right, but

why do we keep hesitating, with sad faces?

Our relationship is meaningless

 

It would be better if you came to dislike me

I’m saying it would be fine even if you hated me

What should we do?

We are still pretty good people to each other

 

Should we break up?

Looking at us recently,

breaking up seems right, but

every time I think like that

our happy days seem like a waste

Today, too, just us…
