Program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend” menampilkan Lee Chi Hyun sebagai legenda dalam episode 152. Episode ini mengudara di stasiun televisi KBS pada tanggal 14 Juni 2014, serta ditayangkan pada tanggal 5 Juli 2014 di channel KBS World. Lee Chi Hyun adalah singer-songwriter yang merupakan frontman dari grup band Lee Chi Hyun and the Botnimdeul. Grup band ini berjaya pada tahun 1980-an dengan musiknya yang unik dan eksploratif. Salah satu lagu hits yang ditulis sendiri oleh Lee Chi Hyun beserta rekannya Lee Yong Kyun, bertajuk “Only You”, dibawakan oleh solois pria Lee Jung dalam program “Immortal Songs 2” tersebut.
“Only You” is a love song. It’s about a man who expresses his sincere love for his woman, through this song; that he doesn’t need anything else if he had her; that he doesn’t want anything more if he got her. “Even if the sun shines brightly, what good does it do to me? Only you, my beautiful lady, who could be the light for me.” Because there’s no brighter light than her in his life. Because there’s no warmer hug than hers for his life. “Even if the soft moonlight shines, what good does it do to me? Only your fragrant hair that could give me a warm hug.” As he pours all of his love and feelings out to her, he hopes that she wouldn’t say goodbye, ever. He hopes that they could be just simply together like this, forever. “My love, don’t say goodbye, please look at me with love. I want to keep my love like this forever.”

Pertama kali dirilis pada tahun 1980, “Only You” merupakan bagian dari album kedua Lee Chi Hyun and the Botnimdeul. This song was praised for its stylish instrumental music. Besides, its lyrics and cheerful yet warm melody stand out. At the time Lee Chi Hyun wrote this song, he came up with a melody while thinking about his future wife. Pada tahun 1997, penyanyi legendaris Korea Selatan lainnya, Kim Gun Mo, membuat cover atas lagu “Only You” yang termuat dalam album kelimanya, “Myself”. Versi ini menjadi populer walaupun bukan merupakan title song dari album tersebut. Versi original lagu ini merupakan lagu pop blues dengan medium tempo. Sementara versi remake oleh Kim Gun Mo memiliki aransemen pop R n’ B, yang dikombinasi dengan rap part dan nuansa dance music dengan tempo mid-beat. Pada program “Immortal Songs 2”, Lee Jung mengaransemen lagu ini menjadi ballad R n’ B dengan slow-medium tempo dan sentuhan jazz. Karena melodi dasar lagu ini yang memang sudah enak didengar, “Only You” pun nikmat untuk didengarkan dalam berbagai aransemen. Even until today, “Only You” is a popular masterpiece that has been sung by many singers over the years. It’s sweetly everlasting.

My love, don’t say goodbye, please look at me with love. I want to keep my love like this forever.” –Lee Chi Hyun and the Botnimdeul, Only You [translated lyrics]







“Nunbusin haetsali bichwo jueodo jege museun soyong itgetseoyo
(Even if the sun shines brightly, what good does it do to me?)

(Only you, my beautiful lady, who could be the light for me)

(I want to keep my love like this forever)”
