Where Are You Now?

Wednesday, April 02, 2014



Even now, I still clearly remember your falling tears. I don’t want to just keep them buried in my heart. Was it all just a coincidence that you had to leave? Again, the rainy street reminds me of you who have gone.” –Yim Jae Bum, Where Are You, My Love? [translated lyrics]

Penyanyi legendaris Korea Selatan, Yim Jae Bum, tampil sebagai legenda untuk kedua kalinya dalam program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend”. Setelah sebelumnya hadir pada episode 89, ia muncul kembali pada episode 124. Episode ini mengudara pada tanggal 26 Oktober 2013 di stasiun televisi KBS, serta di channel KBS World pada tanggal 16 November 2013. Solois pria, K.Will, merupakan salah satu penyanyi yang hadir sebagai penampil dalam episode tersebut. Penyanyi bernama asli Kim Hyung Soo ini membawakan salah satu lagu hits Yim Jae Bum yang bertajuk “Where Are You, My Love?”. Penampilan memukau K.Will atas lagu “Where Are You, My Love?” menuai pujian dari sang legenda.
“Where Are You, My Love?” is a song about someone who’s missing a person that has already gone. Just like other Yim Jae Bum’s songs, “Where Are You, My Love?” has this kind of lyrics that could make you wondering about those days that have passed. The lyrics are simple yet somehow have this kind of depth that could give you thrill. This time is about longing for a person we used to love yet deeply hurt us. Tentang ingatan akan seseorang yang sangat berarti meskipun terasa menyakitkan. Tentang kenangan yang begitu indah meskipun terasa memilukan. “Even now, I still clearly remember your falling tears. I don’t want to just keep them buried in my heart. Was it all just a coincidence that you had to leave? Again, the rainy street reminds me of you who have gone.” Bahkan setelah waktu demi waktu terlewati pun segala kenangan itu masih terukir jelas dalam benak. Bahkan ketika kini kita tak tahu lagi ia berada di mana, hanya dengan berpikir tentangnya kita sanggup merasa bahagia. Hence, deep inside we desperately call out for that person, where are you now? “I still clearly remember those days and times that we spent together. You are still in my breath and memory, and it is making me cry. Even just by thinking about you coming back to me, I got so happy, and the tears are keep falling slowly. Where are you, my love?”

Dirilis pertama kali pada tanggal 1 Juli 1997 sebagai bagian dari album kedua Yim Jae Bum yang bertajuk “Desire to Fly”, “Where Are You, My Love?” merupakan salah satu promotional single dari album tersebut. Lagu ini telah dinyanyikan ulang oleh banyak penyanyi, termasuk aktris panggung teater musikal, Cha Ji Yeon. Cha Ji Yeon merilis versi remake dari “Where Are You, My Love?” pada tanggal 16 Juni 2011 yang terdiri dari dua versi, yaitu versi solo dan versi duet bersama sang penyanyi asli, Yim Jae Bum. Dari seluruh versi yang ada, saya paling menyukai versi original milik Yim Jae Bum. Well, there is no need to say more about his voice. It’s just a kind of voice to die for.

I still clearly remember those days and times that we spent together. You are still in my breath and memory, and it is making me cry. Even just by thinking about you coming back to me, I got so happy, and the tears are keep falling slowly. Where are you, my love?” –Yim Jae Bum, Where Are You, My Love? [translated lyrics]
