Episode 134 program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend” merupakan perayaan spesial tahun baru 2014. Episode tersebut merupakan bagian pertama dari edisi spesial “The Rival”, di mana 12 tim penampil saling beradu satu lawan satu, dengan peraih nilai tertinggi yang akan membawa pulang trophy “Immortal Songs 2”. Ronde pertama dalam episode 134 adalah Shin Seung Hun VS Kim Gun Mo, two legendary singers of the 1990s with million-selling albums. Penyanyi yang akan mengadu lagu hits dari kedua legenda tersebut adalah Ailee VS Hyorin, the rivaling divas of “Immortal Songs 2”. Berdasarkan hasil undian, Ailee terpilih sebagai penampil kedua setelah Hyorin. Ia membawakan salah satu lagu hits Shin Seung Hun, yang juga merupakan lagu debutnya, bertajuk “You Reflected in a Smile”.
“You Reflected in a Smile” is a song about someone who remembering their past lover that has left them with deep impression. Even though it feels sad, but I will remember you with a smile, yes, that kind of feeling. Terkadang seseorang tidak menyadari ketika mereka meninggalkan kesan bagi orang lain, bahwa terkadang hal sekecil apapun dapat berarti begitu dalam dan besar bagi orang lain. Bahkan ketika ia telah pergi, kesan itu tetap membekas begitu dalam di benak kita. “Looking at your picture on the table, I call out for you with this sad voice. But you just stare back at me without a word, and with a smile as always.” Karena orang itu begitu berarti, sehingga kita mengingatnya dengan senyuman, bukan tangisan. Meskipun kepergiannya meninggalkan luka, kita ingin mengingatnya dengan senyuman, atas seluruh kebersamaan dan hari-hari bahagia yang pernah ia berikan dan lewati bersama. “I don’t want to cry, I want to laugh once again, while looking at your reflection reflected in the smile. Whenever I want to cry again, I think of you. I’m immersed in our past memories, my love.
