dj프리즈 ~ resist (feat. 마샬방)

djfriz ~ resist (feat. mrshll)

 

Is it kpop if it’s in English? Who cares!? Everything about this release is incredible. I believe this is what kids these days call “aesthetic.” It’s chill. It’s emotional. If one tenth of k-pop videos were this intriguing I would get back into kpop in an instant.

 

djfriz is part of the producer group Planet Shiver of Amoeba Culture that also includes Philtre. They have been working in the Korean hip hop industry for forever and have worked with pretty much everyone, from Epik High to Lessang to Drunken Tiger to Dynamic Duo and now to mrshll, aka Marshall Bang, a Korean-American from LA who tried out for MBC’s Star Audition and is rumored to be making his debut soon. When he does, he’ll be the first k-pop star to open the industry as openly gay, so the dude has his work cut out for him. If the rest of his work looks like this, though, he’ll have my absolute support.

 

Typically I translate songs from Korean to English because that is waaaay easier, but this song is in English. Despite being incredibly uncomfortable, I tried translating it into Korean and got some of my Korean friends to weigh in. Nevertheless, I’m still quite ambivalent about sharing. I always tell myself something is better than nothing, and this song deserves all the attention it can get.

 

 

English:

 

Every day I wander a way

To your heart, yeah, to your heart when

Every night wonderin’ why

Sighing out loud

Thinkin’ bout them days of

 

You and I

Used to be my one and only

Can’t erase

Won’t go through this shit anymore

 

And I cannot resist your lovin’

I admit you won, you won, you won

And I cannot resist your lovin’

I admit you won, you won, you won

 

Every day I wander a way

To your heart, yeah, to your heart when

Every night wonderin’ why

Sighing out loud

Thinkin’ bout them days of

 

You and I

Used to be my one and only

Can’t erase

Won’t go through this shit anymore

 

And I cannot resist your lovin’

I admit you won, you won, you won

And I cannot resist your lovin’

I admit you won, you won, you won

 

Someone save me from this mess

Why can’t I ever let you go?

 

 

한국어:

 

난 매일 헤매다

너의 마음으로 너의 마음으로

매일 밤 생각해보면

한굼만 내쉬다

옛생각이 나

 

너와 나의 생각

너 하나뿐이었는데

지울 수 없어

더 이상 참을 수 없어

 

너의 사랑을 저항할 수 없어

네가 이기는 걸 인정해

너의 사랑을 저항할 수 없어

네가 이기는 걸 인정해

 

난 매일 헤매다

너의 마음으로 너의 마음으로

매일 밤 생각해보면

한굼만 내쉬다

옛생각이 나

 

너와 나의 생각

너 하나뿐이었는데

지울 수 없어

더 이상 참을 수 없어

 

너의 사랑을 저항할 수 없어

네가 이기는 걸 인정해

너의 사랑을 저항할 수 없어

네가 이기는 걸 인정해

 

누가 날 살려줘

내가 왜 널 보낼 수 없을까?
