Last Song Syndrome: LSS-ing on K-pop

The Urban Dictionary defines LSS as a “condition” in which the last song you’ve listened to “gets stuck in your head. ” It is characterized by subconscious humming and is particularly “dangerous when the song happens to be the most pathetic, crappy, albeit catchy song ever.” In my case, it is due to Koreanovela TV reruns and the incessant viewing of its DVD counterpart, AND is fast evolving into a fascination for things Korean.

I blame primetime! (You’d never guess what my next blog entry’s going to be about 😛 ) I can’t believe I’m saying this (especially since I have been perennially teasing a very dear friend and former coworker about her Bae Yong Joon obsession), but I’m currently suffering from an addictive K-pop Download Syndrome. (Shoot. This is karma at work, I’m sure of it.) Never mind that I don’t understand the lyrics or that people with supposedly “better taste in music” call it bubblegum pop. The melody, rhythm,  timbre, and texture are doing all the talking. 🙂

[English Version]
I’m really, very foolish
I know of no one other than you
you’re looking at someone else
yet you have no idea of my feelings like this

I won’t be in your days
I won’t be in the memories either, however
only you, I looked only at you
and the tears keep coming

As I watch you walking past, I’m still happy
even yet you still don’t know my heart
I should stop this and go

I really want to see the day
I’m withstanding the pain each day
“I love you” is playing on my lips
Alone once again, crying for you
alone once again, missing for you
Baby, I love you, I’m waiting for you

I won’t be in your days
I won’t be remembered either, however
only you, I looked only at you
I’m making memories alone

Loving you is like having a beautiful wound
I look at your pretty smile also
but I cannot laugh with you

I’m thinking about you so much everyday
my heart is hurting in all these sad days
‘I want to see you’ is playing on my lips
alone once again, crying for you
alone once again, missing for you
Baby, I’m waiting for you, I love you

bye bye, never say goodbye
even though I cannot hold you like this
I need you, I cannot say anything more, I want you
I keep on hoping too, I’ll keep hoping….

I really want to see the day
I’m withstanding the pain each day
“I love you” is playing on my lips
Alone once again, crying for you

I’m thinking about you so much everyday
my heart is hurting in all these sad days
‘I want to see you’ is playing on my lips
alone once again, crying for you
alone once again, missing for you
Baby, I’m waiting for you, I love you
