The Growing Love

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Because my love keeps growing, because it grows like fingernails, I cut and cut it but it stays the same. As much as it grew, it hurts, day by day, it hurts more. I try to erase it but in the end, my love is you.” –Yoo Sung Eun, Because Love Grows (OST. Who Are You?) [translated lyrics]

Finalis ajang pencarian bakat Korea Selatan, “The Voice of Korea”, Yoo Sung Eun, menyumbangkan suara emasnya untuk mengisi jajaran soundtrack serial drama “Who Are You?”. Solois wanita ini membawakan sebuah lagu ballad yang bertajuk “Because Love Grows”. Meskipun dinyanyikan oleh wanita, lirik lagu ini menggambarkan perasaan tokoh utama pria, Cha Gun Woo (diperankan oleh Ok Taecyeon), kepada tokoh utama wanita, Yang Shi Ohn (diperankan oleh So Yi Hyun). Gun Woo jatuh cinta kepada Shi Ohn, seniornya di kepolisian. Namun wanita itu terus mengesampingkan perasaan Gun Woo. Tanpa sanggup ia bendung, perasaan itu tetap saja bertumbuh seiring kebersamaan mereka.
“Because Love Grows” is a song about the unstoppable unrequited love. “At first, I cried like a child as I kept wandering through the memories. You, who have welled up in my eyes, you, who have been dyed inside of me, I long for you again.” Love comes without permission. It grows unknowingly. Love makes us built a hope. This hope could crumble so easily in the second we know that our love is unrequited. “For a month, I pretended to be alright and smiled, for a year, I pretended to forget you. But my heart kept calling out to you, it’s you who live in me. Somehow I could feel your embrace.” Pain comes without warning. It grows unknowingly. Pain makes us built a defense. This defense means nothing when it comes to that love which has brought us to this point.

“Because my love keeps growing, because it grows like fingernails, I cut and cut it but it stays the same. As much as it grew, it hurts, day by day, it hurts more. I try to erase it but in the end, my love is you.” Pathetically, the more we try to get rid of that feeling, the more we feel the pain. Ironically, the more we try to throw away that feeling, the more we feel the love. It keeps growing, because love is like a fingernail. No matter how many times we cut it again and again, it keeps growing back again. “Because my heart hurts, because it hurts to death, it feels like I would be broken apart. As much as it hurts, I hate you, I hate you so much. I try to forget you but in the end, the only one person that my heart wants is you. I call out to you once again.” No matter how far we run, we keep crawling back to that one person. Because no matter what we’ve been through, in the end, we realize that that one person is the only one that we want. “If it’s not you, I can’t go on; a different love, I can’t do that. I hold onto you. My tears dry and my heart hurt. I turn back the time but in the end, it’s you.”
Lagu ini dirilis sebagai single “Who Are You? OST Part 2” pada tanggal 26 Agustus 2013. Disamping menggambarkan perasaan karakter Cha Gun Woo, lagu ini juga menjadi theme song bagi kisah cinta tragis antara karakter Yang Shi Ohn dan almarhum kekasihnya, Lee Hyung Joon (diperankan oleh Kim Jae Wook). Hyung Joon meninggal dunia ketika hubungan mereka tengah dalam puncaknya dan pria itu akan melamar Shi Ohn. “Because Love Grows” memiliki melodi yang menyayat hati, yang berpadu apik dengan vokal melankolis Yoo Sung Eun. Lagu ini berhasil menghidupkan setiap suasana sendu dalam serial drama “Who Are You?”, terutama ketika mengiringi kisah cinta tragis Hyung Joon dan Shi Ohn. I really love this song and totally can’t get bored of it.

If it’s not you, I can’t go on; a different love, I can’t do that. I hold onto you. My tears dry and my heart hurt. I turn back the time but in the end, it’s you.” –Yoo Sung Eun, Because Love Grows (OST. Who Are You?) [translated lyrics]
