1 Song with 2 Titles ?




Welcome or welcome back to koreanstudyjunkies. I'm Angel, and in this blog post, we're going to talk about K-pop songs ๐ŸŽถ


For some of you that learn Korean with the help from K-pop, did you realize that some (or most) K-pop song have double title. In my experience, learning/ keeping up with Korean through K-pop song, I prefer knowing the Korean title because somehow it connects better with the lyrics.


Without further ado, let's get to the song titles~


(note : I would pick a song that I know a little bit better than the other, so when I give a little description about the song, I hope it minimize the mistakes that I'll make, and if at the end I still make mistake, please let me know)

๋ชฐ๋ž์–ด

After talking about 2 title tracks, were going to move to a b-side track. you guys familiar with the song "it's like a po-o-o-laroid love" ? The group, Enhyphen (์—”ํ•˜์ดํ”ˆ), has a b-side track in dimension:dilemma album with a title "Just A Little Bit". It's kinda unbelievable that this was their first time sing a ballad song, because they're good at conveying the emotion through singing it live or in the recording as well. Are you curious how would the singer of "Poloid Love" sings a ballad song? go check it out then.

vocabulary :

๋ชจ๋ฅด๋‹ค (to don't know)

๋ชฐ๋ž์–ด = (I) didn't know


์†Œ๋ฆฌ๊พผ

A group that known for its loud song, had made a clap-back with a wordplay "no easy" and "noisy" for their second full studio album. Stray Kids (์ŠคํŠธ๋ ˆ์ดํ‚ค์ฆˆ) NOEASY's title track, Thunderous, is a hip hop song with a touch of Korean traditional music. the song expresses their firm belief that they will keep to their principles no matter what anyone says.

vocabulary :

์†Œ๋ฆฌ๊พผ = singer
