Title: 사랑의 진실 (Love’s Truth) | Album: 사랑의 진실 (Love’s Truth) | Artist: Astro Bits ft. 정인 (Jung In) | Year: 2011 | Label: Mirror Ball Music.
After working as a bassist for the band ‘Paper Mode’ in the early 90s, the South-Korean producer Astro Bits (Ryuichi Sakamoto.) plunged into the Tokyo acid jazz scene where he briefly collaborated with the avant-garde Japanese composer
Unlike most languages in East Asia, Korean is a phonetic language read left to right. For example the consonants s (ㅅ), t (ㅌ) or the vowels a (ㅏ), i (ㅣ) could be stacked on top of each-other like Lego blocks. Somehow, most rendering support systems are occasionally stuck with deciphering Hangul. As an outcome, this foreign script tends to be transformed into a chaos of rectangular boxes, and punctuations marks. So, any time this message appears:
“Due to the limitations of the supported zip file format, the following file(s) had to be renamed”
I quietly weep, for several reasons. Nothing is more time-consuming than correcting files which were automatically transformed into…file1.mp3, file 2.mp3 or even worser… ƒnƒCEƒtƒ@ƒCEƒZƒbƒg!
My credit goes out to the bloggers ✿Chokollit, and popgasa who somehow were able to romanize the original lyrics. Well, here we go!jeo meolli tteonagan nae nim-eun oneuldo oji anhne Far gone my love has not come today michin deut medallin iyudo ijeneun al su omne I now know why but must move on hanbeon jun nae mam-eun nimcheoleom yeong-wonhi sarajyonne Gone forever once I gave my heart to you geuliun eolguldo ijeneun gieog-i naji anhne Now I can’t even remember anymore eotteohge ileol suga issnayo?
