Lee Hi – Breathe

Hello everyoneeee

So this time, I’m posting about Korean thing. (FINALLY!) Well, i don’t know about you, but it’s an exam moment in my school. And yeah, even though it’s not yet starting, i can see the book piles and coffee and oh yeah tired eyes. Seriously. I’m feeling tired even before it start LOL.

And because of it, I’m sharing this really-comforting song. Especially for myself, and generally for whoever feeling down right now. Here it is~

Lee Hi – Breathe lyric

[Romanized]

sumeul keuge swieobwayo
dangsinui gaseum yangjjogi jeorige
jogeumeun apaol ttaekkaji
sumeul deo baeteobwayo
dangsinui ane nameun ge eoptdago
neukkyeojil ttaekkaji

sumi beokchaollado gwaenchanhayo
amudo geudael tathajin anha
gakkeumeun silsuhaedo dwae

gwaenchanhdaneun mal
malppunin wirojiman

nugungaui hansum geu mugeoun sumeul
naega eotteoke hearil suga isseulkkayo
dangsinui hansum geu gipil ihaehal sun eopgetjiman
gwaenchanhayo naega anajulgeyo

Take a deep breath
Until both sides of your heart get numb
Until it hurts a little
Let out your breath even more
Until you feel
like there’s nothing left inside

It’s alright if you run out of breath
No one will blame you
It’s okay to make mistakes sometimes
Because anyone can do so
Although comforting by saying it’s alright
Are just words

Someone’s breath. That heavy breath
How can I see through that?
Though I can’t understand your breath
It’s alright I’ll hold you

It’s alright if you run out of breath
No one will blame you
It’s okay to make mistakes sometimes
Because anyone can do so
Although comforting by saying it’s alright
Are just words

Someone’s breath. That heavy breath
How can I see through that?
Though I can’t understand your breath
It’s alright I’ll hold you

Even if others think your sigh
Takes out energy and strength
I already know
That you had a day that’s hard enough
To let out even a small sigh
Now don’t think of anything else
Let out a deep sigh
Just let it out like that

Someone’s breath. That heavy breath
How can I see through that?
Though I can’t understand your breath
It’s alright I’ll hold you
You really did a good job

I chose this song to share to y’all, and i hope you’re comforted after you listen to it.  I know, right? The song is so deep. Instead of singing a common love song, she chose this breath-taking song to comfort people. Sure, life is not always easy and happy, but we will get stronger and then it will be okay. Sure thing, i will need this song for the exam week that coming!

This song is about people who are tired, and desperate. “like there’s nothing left inside” it said. It’s okay to be failed, or soon-to-be-failed, if you work hard enough. It’s just not yet time for you to be success. No one blame you. Well if someone do, don’t care about it. If someone judge you after those sweats and bloods and tears, they surely don’t care and just want to destroy you. Lee Hi tells people through this song that it’s okay to make mistakes sometimes. And she knows, by telling “good job” will make those down feeling go away, and starts a new hope. There’s still tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day after that to try.

Well, talking about the music video, it’s beautiful. It’s showing us from many perspective.

it’s hard looking for job, even in city.

That’s some screenshot from the video. It’s like a short documentary film though, a sad but beautiful one.

Oh, forgot to mention. The composer of this song is Jonghyun, from a group named SHINee and he has a solo album last year. He has this super beautiful voice and this song is the first time his composed song is out for public. I remember he once said he likes composing song just for fun, and it surprises me and his fans, because this Breathe song is really something! And he’s 26 year old, quite young for a good composer in Korea.

this is an article : Lee Hi comment about Jonghyun’s composed song, Breathe

Breathe is one of Lee Hi album Seoulite songs. You should listen to it, because she has A REALLY AMAZING VOICE although we can’t really hear it in this Breathe song. I don’t know why she didn’t include any song that she composed herself into this Seoulite album, but i know she has many songs that she re-composed(i don’t know what’s the term for changing someone’s song but you don’t own the song, like cover song kind of thing).

For example

yes she was in that KPOP STAR, it’s a audition to become a singer. AND OF COURSE SHE WINS IT! you won’t regret watching it.
