Where the Love Falls

Monday, July 14, 2014

When flower petals fall, don’t open your eyes, until all beautiful flowers have bloomed. When your love ceases to be, leave me without words, because I’m afraid if my memories will be stained.” –Lee Sun Hee, Where the Love Falls [translated lyrics]

Program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend” episode 147 merupakan bagian kedua dari edisi spesial yang menampilkan Lee Sun Hee sebagai legenda. Episode 147 ini mengudara di stasiun televisi KBS pada tanggal 5 April 2014, serta ditayangkan di channel KBS World pada tanggal 26 April 2014. The two-parts special episodes were a homage to Lee Sun Hee for the 30th anniversary of her career as singer-songwriter in South Korea. Tampil membawakan salah satu lagu hits Lee dalam episode 147 adalah The One. Solois pria bernama asli Jung Sun Won ini menampilkan lagu ballad bertajuk “Where the Love Falls”. Penampilannya tersebut merupakan kedua kalinya ia hadir dalam “Immortal Songs 2”, setelah sebelumnya hadir pada edisi spesial Deulgukhwa (episode 100 dan 101). And now, he comes back stronger than ever.
“Where the Love Falls” is a song about love and pain that come in one package. Those who fall in love would know how the feel in pain. And this song is about someone who have to separate with their beloved one just in the time when they’re really in love. “When flower petals fall, don’t open your eyes, until all beautiful flowers have bloomed. When your love ceases to be, leave me without words, because I’m afraid if my memories will be stained.” Where there’s love, there will be pain too. And indeed, there’s always somebody for someone that no matter how bad that person hurts them, they could always take that person back for good; back again to those days when they’re in love. There’s always somebody for someone that no matter how many painful things that person leaves them, they could always forgive and forget just by a little love that still remains. “Where the love falls, that’s where sorrowful memories remain. Don’t open your eyes, I don’t want you to see me cry. Whenever you miss me, you can come back to me. We can go back to the days when we were madly in love, I want to go back.”
Dirilis pertama kali pada tahun 1988, “Where the Love Falls” merupakan lead single sekaligus title song dari album keempat Lee Sun Hee. The beautiful melody and Lee Sun Hee’s clear voice in this song touched many people’s hearts. Lee’s soft and strong voice stands out in this song. The One’s interpretation of this song was just amazing. It’s like the roar of a man who was hurt by love, a man filled with wounds and longing. He showed the epitome of sorrowfulness when a man loves. Indeed he has a charisma that could command the stage, with his strong voice as his main instrument. The One’s strong rendition of “Where the Love Falls” made him the winner of that Lee Sun Hee special episode and brought home the “Immortal Songs 2” trophy for the first time in his second visit on the show. It was a powerful yet heartwrenching ballad performance, and definitely one of The One’s best performances.

Where the love falls, that’s where sorrowful memories remain. Don’t open your eyes, I don’t want you to see me cry. Whenever you miss me, you can come back to me. We can go back to the days when we were madly in love, I want to go back.” –Lee Sun Hee, Where the Love Falls [translated lyrics]



“Kkotnipi tteoreojil ttaen geudae nuntteuji marayo
(When flower petals fall, don’t open your eyes)
Geutorok areumdabdeon kkotnipieotjyanayo
(Until all beautiful flowers have bloomed)
Sarangi meoreojil ttaen geudae maleobi tteonayo
(When your love ceases to be, leave me without words)
Geutorok saranghaetdeon chueoki eollukjilkka duryeowo
(Because I’m afraid if my memories will be stained)

Sarangi jineun i jari chueokmani seoreowo
(Where the love falls, that’s where sorrowful memories remain)
Geudae nuntteuji marayo nae nunmul boigin sireo
(Don’t open your eyes, I don’t want you to see me cry)

Naega geuriul ttaen geudae dorawado joayo
(Whenever you miss me, you can come back to me)
Geutorok saranghaetdeon yetnallo doragago sipeoyo

(We can go back to the days when we were madly in love, I want to go back)”
