“I’ve preordered Big Bang’s ALIVE album, TOP version. I cannot wait till it’s delivered to my doorstep. I was honestly in a huge dilemma between getting the Big Bang’s or TOP’s version. So smart of YG to be producing 6 different versions. That’s one major profitable marketing strategy.”—
겨울이 가고 봄이 찾아오죠 (Kyuh-ool-ee gago bom-ee cha-ja-oh-jyo) [As winter leaves, spring comes to find me]
우린 시들고 그리움 속에 맘이 멍들었죠 (ooh-rin shi-deul-go keu-ri-oom soh-geh ma-mi mung-deul-ut-jyo) [We have withered and our hearts have bruised in reminiscence]
I’m singing my blues
파란 눈물에 파란 슬픔에 길들여져 (paran noon-mool-eh paran seul-peum-eh gil-deu-rhyuh-jyuh) [I’m getting used to these blue tears, this blue sadness,]
I’m singing my blues
뜬 구름에 날려보낸 사랑 (Ddeun Goo-reum-eh nal-rhyuh-bo-nen sarang) [this love thrown away into the fleeting clouds]
[Meaning #1: Love]
A man remembering his lover. He notes the passing time by vaguely describing the change of seasons (that could have happens infinitely many times -> infinitely many years could have passed). Trying to convince himself that he’s getting used to the pain, the sadness; trying to convince himself that he can forget about the love now by singing his blues.
[Meaning #2: Big Bang]
A song of apology. Bigbang is coming back with a fresh, new start (spring) after a period of rest (winter). The things that happened in 2011 makes Bigbang tired and bruised, but they’re ready to sing the blues again. Blues refer to VIPs, as well as the song dedicated to VIPs. Blue sadness and blue tears mean VIP’s sadness and tears caused by Bigbang. 뜬구름 (ddeun goo-reum) is an idiomatic expression for both “all-of-a-sudden” and “rumors”: possibly referring to the 2011 incidents.
I brought my royallybeastly ladies to this new coffeeshop, ‘WHISK’, in our usual hangout spot for late night desserts and coffee yesterday. It was actually my second time to this place and really, there’ll definitely be a third time for me very soon. I’m like addicted to this place. LOL!
The shop is really simple, nothing extravagant; just what you need for a casual cup of coffee and delicious treats. Small but very cosy, if you ask me. The warm lighting, the simplistic interior of the shop, the latin jazz music playing, the smell of coffee the moment you stepped into the shop ♡
