Melody of Lyrics: Lee Seung Gi - Because You're My Woman

Saturday, December 22, 2012


First of all, sorry for not posting this on a Friday like I always do, but since I wasn't able to use a computer yesterday and I don't want to skip this entirely either, I'm gonna post it today. 
Lee Seung Gi is one of the most loved young male ballad singers in Korea and though I'm more familiar with his acting and variety works I do know a couple of his songs. "Because You're My Woman" is Seung Gi's debut song from his first album "The Dream Of A Moth" (2004), the ballad that pretty much caused the noona-romance madness we know today. The song is full of raw emotion and has a very lovely music video to top it.


English translation of the lyrics:

Only as a dongseng, just that much you think I'm adorable
but noona you are woman to me.
You say "what do you know?" "you'll understand when you're older"
you say that I'm acting rashly but noona you re a woman to me.
No matter who you meet or whoever you meet and no matter what you do,
I can only wait.

Because noona is woman, because you are my woman.

I'll call you by you, no matter what you say.
So that you can feel me as a man, I'll hold you tightly.
I'll call you by you. No matter what you say, I don't care.
Don't be surprised.
If you really look, you are a young girl.

Where have you gone? Where do you hurt?
You look sad. Noona, it doesn't suit you.
When I ask you "has something happened?"
"What happened", you just tousle my hair.
If someone makes noona cry,
whoever that might be I'm not going to stand it.

Because noona is my woman, becaue you are my woman.

I'll call you by you, no matter what you say.
So that you can forget your sadness, I'll hold you tightly.
I'll call you by you. No matter what you say, I don't care.
Be in my embrace.
If you really look, you are a young girl.

Becaue I like you I must be doing this.
I know that this isn't right.
Because I like you.. Because I like you..
Because noona is my woman, because you are my woman.
Because you drive me insane.

Don't be sorry, because I'm happy.
Even if I look at you, I shed tears.
I'll call you by you. No matter what you say, I don't care.
Just be my side.

In the end I'm telling you you are my woman.

Why I like these lyrics:

Well for one, this song created the wonderful thing we now all spazz about - the noona romance. It is one of the most loved genres dramas, some of the most well-known examples being My Name Is Kim Sam Soon and What's Up, Fox?.
I love how adorable these lyrics are, how a boy has fallen in love with his noona and how he wishes noona would think of him as a man, even though she still sees at him as a young boy. And especially how he is so protective and serious about her, even though she is probably his first real love. There is just something so incredibly sweet and heartbreaking about how he repeats over and over again that she is his woman. Totally brings me back memories of numerous K-drama noona-crushes that didn't end so well.
