다섯 (Dasutt) – Youth

 

There was a bit of a scuffle on Twitter a few months back about one of the Dasutt members uploading an advertisement for Girls (with a capital G). Fans roasted them for uploading something like that, especially since most of their fans are girls. It’s taken me a while to sort through my feels on the subject, and it wasn’t until this request that I revisited their music.

I personally don’t have anything against prostitution as a concept, and support its legalization. HOWEVER, that being said, because it’s not legal and blah blah blah, a lot of prostitution is what drives human trafficking and exploitation of women, which is obviously not cool. Ultimately, I think the Twitter story was in poor taste and did put a bit of a damper on my enthusiasm for Dasutt, but at the same time it’s certainly nothing illegal and doesn’t merit the criticism they received. They certainly don’t deserve to be cancelled like some other Korean artists I can think of…

 

 

한국어:

 

큰 꿈 부풀어 안고

마냥 앞만 보며

달려왔던 나는 어떤가요

뒤도 돌아보고 주위를 둘러보며

마주하는 나를 놓쳤네요

 

걱정이 많던 난 너무 급했었나 봐

작은 방 안에다 날 가둬놓았나 봐

 

늘 불안했던 마음

늘 초라했던 날 알아

문이 열리는 그날

우리 다시 만나보자

 

큰 꿈 부풀어 안고

마냥 앞만 보며

달려왔던 나는 어떤가요

뒤도 돌아보고 주위를 둘러보며

마주하는 나를 놓쳤네요

 

이제야 와서 난

엄마의 마음을 알아

늘 응원한다는 말

흘려 들었었나 봐

 

늘 불안했던 마음

늘 초라했던 날 알아

문이 열리는 그날

우리 다시 만나보자

 

큰 꿈 부풀어 안고

마냥 앞만 보며

달려왔던 나는 어떤가요

뒤도 돌아보고 주위를 둘러보며

마주하는 나를 놓쳤네요

 

큰 꿈 부풀어 안고

마냥 앞만 보며

달려왔던 나는 어떤가요

뒤도 돌아보고 주위를 둘러보며

마주하는 나를 놓쳤네요

 

 

English:

 

I embraced a large, swollen dream

and having only ever looked ahead,

dashing onward; what am I now?

As I look behind and all around me,

I see I had lost myself

 

Full of worry, I guess I was in too much of a hurry

I guess I locked myself up in a small room

 

My heart was always anxious

I know I was always pathetic

On that day the door opens,

let’s meet again

 

I embraced a large, swollen dream

and having only ever looked ahead,

dashing onward; what am I now?

As I look behind and all around me,

I see I had lost myself

 

I’ve finally arrived so

I understand how my mother feels

She always said she was cheering me on

but that went in one ear and out the other

 

My heart was always anxious

I know I was always pathetic

On that day the door opens,

let’s meet again

 

I embraced a large, swollen dream

and having only ever looked ahead,

dashing onward; what am I now?

As I look behind and all around me,

I see I had lost myself

 

I embraced a large, swollen dream

and having only ever looked ahead,

dashing onward; what am I now?

As I look behind and all around me,

I see I had lost myself
