위아영 ~ 99%

We Are Young, “99%”

 

I actually heard them perform this song live yesterday at Smile, LOve, Weekend and thought it would be a cute, easy song to translate. I went to look it up and was shocked by how popular the song was! It makes sense, though, since the song and the boys and the video are all quite endearing (I do wish they would get a girl who isn’t useless at sports for once, but the boys aren’t that great themselves so I guess I can let it slide). As a bonus, here’s a picture I took of them yesterday:

한국어:

 

너는 완벽한 사람

잘하는 것 밖에 없는 걸

근데 내가 보기엔

절대 못할 일이 딱 한 가지 있지

 

뭘까 안 알려줄래

뭔지 안 알려줄 거야

 

그게 뭐냐면 말야

나랑 헤어지는 거 말야

그것만 빼고 다 잘한다고

 

나도 좀 완벽한데

절대 못할 일이 딱 한 가지 있지

 

뭔지 궁금할 거야

뭐지 답답해질 거야

 

그게 뭐냐면 말야

너를 집에 보내는 거 말야

그것만 빼고 다 잘한다고

 

뭘까 궁금할거야

너도 잘 알고 있잖아

 

그게 뭐냐면 말야

너를 웃게 만드는 거 말야

그 중에 이걸 제일 잘한다고

그 중에 이걸 제일 잘한다고

 

 

English:

 

You’re a perfect person

There’s nothing you can’t do well

But the way I see it,

there’s one thing you simply can’t do

 

What is it? I don’t want to tell

What is it? I won’t tell

 

If you’re wondering what it is,

it’s breaking up with me

Aside from that, you do everything well

 

I’m also a bit perfect, but

There’s one thing I simply can’t do

 

What is it? I bet you’re curious

What is it? You’ll get frustrated

 

If you’re wondering what it is,

it’s sending you home

Aside from that, I do everything well

 

What is it? I bet you’re curious

I think you know it, too

 

If you’re wondering what it is,

It’s making you smile

Of all these things, I do this best

Of all these things, I do this best

    Thanks so much for sharing your translation. I wish I had the same talent you have in learning language (btw, sorry for my poor English;;; xDD).

    When you have time, can you please translate: 1415 – 선을 그어 주던가?
    I’ve been literally going insane over what he’s singing in the song. ><
    Many thanks in advance!

      Your English is amazing! Never apologize for doing your best in a non-native language~ Unfortunately, learning another language is just hard work T^T I don’t really have talent, I just studied and studied and studied.

      Here’s a link to the 1415 song: http://wp.me/p3ycIB-qZ
      I quite enjoyed it so thank you for requesting it!
