The Rain of Love

Monday, November 24, 2014

Close your eyes and listen to the sound of love inside your heart, resembling your cozy smile is the love rain. Feel the comfort and warm wind that passes over your shoulders, the soft love that blows softly through my window.” –Jung Dong Ha, Love Rain (Allegro) [translated lyrics]

When I was doing my research of songs about rain –in order to write for this month’s theme– I found out that one of my favorite Korean singers, Jung Dong Ha, also has a song about rain. Jung performed a ballad song titled “Love Rain (Allegro)”. No, it doesn’t have any relation with a Korean drama series titled “Love Rain”. It turns out that Jung had lent his husky voice for the Melody Project. “Love Rain (Allegro)” was the third part of the six-parts compilation album project. It was released on December 17th 2012 as a single titled “Melody Digital Compilation Album: Allegro”.

Rain doesn’t always resemble sadness or loneliness. Sometimes, it resembles something sincere; like the rain of love, like this “Love Rain (Allegro)” song. The track showcases lyrical melodies which express emotions felt when engrossed in the feelings of love. “Close your eyes and listen to the sound of love inside your heart, resembling your cozy smile is the love rain. Feel the comfort and warm wind that passes over your shoulders, the soft love that blows softly through my window.” It’s not love if it’s not comforting. It’s not love if it’s not soft and warm. It’s not love if it’s not bringing smiles and laughs. It’s not love if it’s not being spoken. It’s not love if it can’t make us feel. “Stay still and look, there’s a sweet scent that touched my lips, the dazzling love that always makes us laugh together.”
When we fall in love, there’s nothing that we need more than being together with the person we love. When we love someone, there’s nothing that we want more than expressing our love for that person. “I want to hold you in my heart, my precious person, I love you forever. I want to protect you with my heart, you are my one and only love.” When we fall in love, there’s nothing that could bring a peace more than looking at the smiling face of that person. When we love someone, there’s nothing that could bring a warm fuzzy feeling inside more than seeing through that person’s eyes that they feel the same. When we fall in love, there’s nothing better than knowing that we have someone whom we can hold the hands, to get through anything in life, together, as one, as always. “We only look at each other. We smile as we face each other. Tell me you love me for always. For always, let’s holding hands.”

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a complete information about the Melody Project, so I can’t provide anything about who was producing this project and something like that. But I found that this project was divided into six parts; Meeting (Andante), Tingle (Moderato), Love (Allegro), Misunderstanding (Vivace), Farewell (Fermata), and Memories (Adagio). Every song was sung by different singers. Jung Dong Ha’s “Love Rain (Allegro)” features a soft and pleasant piano introduction, that followed by then-Boohwal’s-vocalist’s warm vocal. It’s a heartwarming track to be listened to during the rain. Indeed, Jung is never disappointing.

Stay still and look, there’s a sweet scent that touched my lips, the dazzling love that always makes us laugh together.” –Jung Dong Ha, Love Rain (Allegro) [translated lyrics]



“Na du nuneul gamgo deureoyo gaseumsoge naerin sarang sorireul
(Close your eyes and listen to the sound of love inside your heart)
Pogeunhan geudae misoreul dalmeun love rain, love rain, love rain
(Resembling your cozy smile is the love rain, love rain, love rain)
Geudaereul neukkyeoboayo eokkae wiro seuchin ttaseuhan baram
(Feel the comfort and warm wind that passes over your shoulders)
Salmyeosi naui changgae buneun budeureoun sarangeul
(The soft love that blows softly through my window)

Nae gaseumeuro anajugo sipeo sojunghan nae sarama yeongwonhi saranghae
(I want to hold you in my heart, my precious person, I love you forever)
Nae gaseumeuro jikyeojugo sipeo hana dan hana nae sarang geudae
(I want to protect you with my heart, you are my one and only love)

Na gamanhi baraboayo nae ipsure daheun dalkomhan hyanggi
(Stay still and look, there’s a sweet scent that touched my lips)
Eonjena hamkke useul su inneun nuni busin sarangeul
(The dazzling love that always makes us laugh together)

Uri seoromaneul boayo majubomyeo useoyo saranghanda malhaeyo
(We only look at each other, we smile as we face each other, tell me you love me)
Eonjena eonjena uri du son jabayo
(For always, for always, let’s holding hands)”
